OUR TREATMENT APPROACH
At PCC we focus on finding the route cause of our patient’s injury and tailor their treatment plan to prevent it from re-occurring in the future. We combine various forms of therapy in our treatment plans in order to optimize patient's results. Our goal is to change the health care industry’s use of treatment to a proactive and preventative system where patients have regular functional assessments and treatment BEFORE they experience any sort of pain or restriction.
Below is a comprehensive list of services we provide.
Chiropractic is a diversified service that treats all areas related to the musculoskeletal system. This includes all muscle, joint, nerve related issues. Joint manipulation is a commonly used modality within the chiropractic scope. It is a type of passive movement of a skeletal joint, using high-velocity-low- amplitude (HVLA) thrusting maneuvers.
Massage Therapy is the assessment and treatment of the soft tissues of the body; muscles, connective tissue and joints, by hands-on manipulation. Treatments have a therapeutic effect to work with the body's own healing factors by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems.
Fine solid needles are inserted into anatomically defined neurofunctional sites along the meridians. It is then stimulated with electrical current for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system.
Functional Integrated Needling
Differs from medical acupuncture in that it does not use meridians. The needles are inserted into specific anatomic structures to promote blood flow; in turn decreasing muscle tension and pain.
Soft tissue release targets a specific muscle and then moves it through its pain-free range of motion. It effectively releases areas that are more difficult to stretch on your own. It also specifically isolates muscles that would normally be stretched together in a group
If an athlete desires that competitive edge, they should obtain this functional screening. One does not have to be in pain in order to identify a loss of range of motion and/or strength. All joints from head to toe are screened for this and treated in order to optimize performance in their particular sport.
Biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. This imbalance could be stemming anywhere on the lower limb and will be assessed individually.

Whether to correct postural imbalances from occupations to post surgical rehabilitation, all individuals would benefit from corrective exercises.

Dr. Scione has literally saved our family!
She started treating my daughters who are dancers and fixed things that no one else could. She gave them an injury prevention plan as well as treating the areas of concern. She explains everything both to me and to them in a way that they can understand and provides realistic solutions to prevention. Their dance success has a lot to do with flexibility and remaining injury free and that is all thanks to Dr Scione. She now treats five other members of my extended family who have had everything from running injuries to knee and hip replacements. I honestly can not say enough good things.
