Dr. Pleau accepts patients with a wide variety of clinical presentations, from infants to centenarians, disabled individuals to professional athletes, musculoskeletal injuries to complex chronic internal disorders.

He uses chiropractic adjustment, manual cranial and visceral therapy, physiotherapy modalities such as electrotherapy and ultrasound, and functional rehabilitation exercises to re-train the nervous system and correct the underlying functional/mechanical causes of pain.

Additionally, he uses a functional medicine approach to address internal disorders. Customized individual assessments make use of genetic analysis and a wide variety of cutting edge laboratory tests to help reveal the causes of your symptoms to make sure that nutritional and lifestyle interventions are exactly what you need to get your body chemistry working properly.
