“Chiropractic to me is a form of manual medicine that aims to help the body achieve its maximum functional potential through using hands on techniques to alleviate pain, increase range of motion and restore function, not only in the spine but in most joints and muscles in the body. Chiropractic adjustments and mobilizations of joints can help increase the range of motion in joints that may become stiff due to injury or repetitive motion and stress. Soft tissue therapy (muscles, tendons and ligaments) such as Active Release Techniques® can help relieve muscle tension and pain due to poor postures or overuse injuries.”
Dr. Tran has an interest in a variety of sports having played volleyball, basketball, and football at a competitive level. He is an avid snowboarder and plays paintball whenever he finds the time, and enjoys all things and activities outdoors.
