Our Techniques

      We use a large number of  very effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and decrease  nervous system interference.  The approach we use may be different depending on each patient as well as each condition being treated. We base the final decision on our judgment and years of experience with treating patients.  Our doctors are highly trained in advanced and specialized chiropractic treatments that address all areas of the body.  What this means  to our patients  is they feel better faster, and stay well longer!


The primary adjusting techniques we use include:
Diversified 

    After identifying which  bones have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is administered to free up "stuck" joints. This style of adjusting is utilized not only in the spine but throughout the entire body to help restore proper motion and function to the body. This office spends extra attention to "extremity conditions". That is problems related to the arms, shoulders, wrists, hands, hips, legs, knees, feet, and ankles.

SOT                                                                     

    Sacro-Occipital Technique helps normalize the relationship between the pelvis and the head as well as everything in between. This very low force and gentle method of adjusting uses gravity to help make the necessary correction.

Kinesiology

      Kinesiology helps to  identify underlying problems in the body and direct the appropriate treatment needed  depending on  the condition.  It utilizes muscle testing and various reflexes in the body. This technique incorporates acupressure, soft tissue treatments, nutrition, homeopathy, and other standard chiropractic techniques depending on the condition.

Activator Methods®

       This technique utilizes a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust to perform the adjustment. It is a great tool for a large variety of our patients from all walks of life. Due to the low force it is very safe and very effective for a wide range of patients like our elderly patients that are concerned with osteoporosis  to our youngest patients who are hard to keep still on the table.

Cranial Adjustment

       This technique consist of gentle pressure to the bones that make up the skull.  It allows access to the 80% of the nervous system that standard chiropractic care can not treat.

CMRT

       Chiropractic Manipulation Reflex Technique can be used to help visceral conditions otherwise overlooked by normal standard of care.  It involves a form of organ reflexology that can dramatically improve  how well the body can function and deal with a variety of stress.
