Modern chiropractic manipulation techniques are safe, comfortable and effective. Dr. Lipka has years of advanced training, expertise and experience in helping patients to achieve their health goals.
We teach our patients how to perform specific targeted exercises and stretches to help strengthen and support their unique conditions and to help relieve occupational and postural stress. Most of these exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and to help your body stay in balance. We also assist our patients with exercise training for overall health and wellness, sports participation and weight management. Dr. Lipka is not only trained in management of sports injuries and physical fitness but she has also held a first place title in All Natural Gulf Coast Bodybuilding and helped co-found the Sandman Triathlon in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
We recognize that regardless of individual health challenges, every one of our patients is a whole person and we want to help them succeed in reaching their health and wellness goals. We often find it beneficial to “coach” our patients towards achievement of a healthier lifestyle by modification or avoidance of provoking activities or bad habits. Every patient deserves a fulfilling life. We make it a priority to help each patient find ways to enjoy the activities that they love the most.
We provide specific recommendations about healthy food choices and nutritional supplementation to enhance our patient’s return to optimal health. We recommend a variety of nutritional products which meet and exceed quality standards for the industry including:
- Anabolic Laboratories
Therapeutic Physical Modalities
We can complement and enhance the effects of our chiropractic manipulation with the addition of a variety of physiological therapeutic procedures including:
- Interferential electrical stimulation
- Moist heat
- Therapeutic exercises

Laser therapy can help to accelerate the healing process and decrease pain and inflammation. Dramatic results have been seen in many conditions including: Plantar Fasciitis, Repetitive stress injuries (tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome), myofascial trigger points, Herpes Zoster (Shingles), wound healing (burns, ulcers, post-surgical), etc. FDA approved indications for use of Class IV laser therapy include: relief of muscle and joint aches, pain and stiffness; relaxation of muscles and muscle spasms; increased local circulation; and relief of pain and stiffness associated with arthritis. Dr. Lipka is certified to safely administer class IV Laser Therapy.
Functional orthotics are individually designed for your unique postural problems, not just problems with your feet, and can help to support your chiropractic adjustments. Posture starts from the ground up and weakness or imbalance in your feet can be the starting point for pain. A variety of biomechanically designed flexible orthotics are available to fit most shoes. Also available, are some name brand shoes with custom orthotic inserts to help provide support, cushioning, comfort and style.
