Chiropractors are experts in caring for neuromusculoskeletal conditions- conditions involving the nerves, soft tissues, bones, and muscles. Since those elements are found throughout the body, a chiropractor is much more than a back doctor.
At Harmony Chiropractic Center, we provide therapy for most of the body’s aches and pains through non-invasive, proven methods. Our team pulls from various treatments and tools that are garnered to your unique goals and pain points. We believe that the body needs to be properly maintained and supported in order to perform at its very best.
With our guidance and recovery programs, our patients find improved comfort, balance, and performance through pain relief and body restoration. Our team offers nutritional insight and proactive care measures so you can take control of your health throughout your life.

Our Four-Legged Stool Approach to Your Body’s Balance
When you think of a four-legged stool, you think of balance, a safe place that will hold you up. We look at your body’s balance in much the same way. Each leg needs to work together to support you.
Leg 1: Proper joint function
Leg 2: Loose and strong muscles
Leg 3: Corrective exercise and rehab
Leg 4: Nutritional health
When all four legs work together, you have stability within your body and your general health. That’s why our team uses every resource in our arsenal to ensure you get the perfect wellness plan for you. We encourage a healthy lifestyle and will help you determine how to proceed with individualized advice, guidance, and solutions.
Our Sylvania chiropractor, Dr. Royer, offers varied treatments to our patients. We know that a one-size-fits-all approach won’t work, and determining your specific needs is essential to a successful outcome. Every patient has one thing in common: they want lasting results. Let us help with that. We’ll restore your body’s natural function through organic, holistic care.
Some of the chiropractic services we offer include:
Chiropractic Adjustments or Spinal Manipulations
The small bones that make up the spine are called vertebrae. Problems such as pain can result when these vertebrae do not move properly. A chiropractic adjustment is given to help restore the normal motion in the spine with a swift, controlled thrust to the targeted area.
Adjustments can be given to several areas of the body if needed and often provide immediate relief and motion restoration. There are different types of chiropractic adjustments in order to help in different situations. Flexion-distraction technique helps specifically with lumbar disc issues and sciatica. Adjustments ca also be preformed with an Activator device to deliver gentle, lower-force adjustments.
Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)
The SFMA is used to classify faulty movement patterns that may be the cause of pain and dysfunction. This information is generated to help our team focus our chiropractic care strategy to meet the specifications of the patient. We will be able to accurately determine the best manipulation, soft tissue treatment, and rehabilitation needed.
The Graston Technique
We are certified to use the Graston Technique, a highly effective, instrument-assisted method of myofascial release. The procedure heals soft tissues that have fibrous restrictions and adhesions that cause pain and discomfort.
Scar tissue can cause many limitations; breaking it up will nurture and quicken the healing process. Using the Graston Technique instuments, our team is able to maximize our efforts through extremely targeted care.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is an FDA-approved method of reducing inflammation and pain symptoms using a safe, effective laser instrument on the skin above the affected area. We use this therapy treatment on many athletic patients who are searching for fast, reliable results.
Corrective Exercise for Sports and General Rehab
Most people know that exercises are good for them, but many do not know that certain corrective exercises can be a way to help rid yourself of pain and other problems. At Harmony Chiropractic Center, stretches and resistance training will be used along with other advanced exercises to help re-educate the muscles and restore proper functional movement.
Sports medicine is an absolute must when it comes to finding your body’s peak performance level. We work with several athletes and have seen firsthand how active patients have doubled down on their athletic goals while taking advantage of strategic sports medicine solutions.
We’ll guide you through the best exercises and training programs, offer warm-up and cool-down techniques, and work your body so it can meet its potential. Are you ready to prepare for your next event? Let’s do it.
Kinesio taping is often used on our active patients to help decrease their discomfort and support joints and muscles without reducing mobility. The tension on the tape helps lift the soft tissue, allowing for better blood and oxygen transfer to and from the affected area.
Massage therapy is an excellent way to complement your chiropractic treatments. Our licensed massage therapist offers various massage services that focus on body balance, muscle tension, and proper structural support.
From athletes to soon-to-be moms, we will help you find comfort and recover quickly through our therapeutic massage options.
Neuromechanical Resilience Method (NRM)
Developed by Dr. Royer, this approach helps strengthen the body and brain. The Neuromechanical Resilience Method helps people to get their lives back to normal and it can help athletes get back in the game and even optimize their performance.
Our understanding of neuromusculoskeletal function contributes to enhancing the body’s efficiency through the precise treatment of muscles, joints, tissues, and the brain.
Other services we offer include:
- A comprehensive evaluation, including ordering x-rays or MRIs and performing electromyography (EMG) when needed

Your First Visit at Harmony Chiropractic Center
All new patients will discuss their full medical history, go over their current symptoms, and complete a 40-60 minute physical examination. The exam is used to determine if chiropractic care is appropriate for your condition and what techniques or modalities would best help correct your problem.
Your physical will consist of range-of-motion testing, neurological testing, and various orthopedic maneuvers. Further testing may be needed in some cases, including blood tests, X-rays, or advanced imaging such as an MRI or CT scans.
People may need advanced testing like electromyography and nerve conduction studies for some nerve-related issues. Please note that further testing will only be performed on a case-by-case basis as deemed necessary by the doctor. Those with conditions that are not amenable to chiropractic care will be sent to the proper specialist to receive appropriate care.
If our team can be of benefit to you, we will gladly take on your unique challenges and help you get to the finish line. Book your appointment today.
