Our Chiropractic Techniques

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.

Diversified

After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints. read more»

Thompson

Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust. read more»

Logan Basic

Applying a light contact to the sacrum, relaxes the muscles and allows the “foundation of your spine” to support your body properly. read more»

Arthrostim Adjusting Instrument

Is a handheld adjusting tool that is operated by electricity. It delivers the adjusting thrust in pulses at selectable frequencies of up to 12 cycles per second. This is similar to the frequency that your cells vibrate at as they communicate with each other (Biorythms).

Because the delivery of the thrust with the Arthrostim can be sustained as long as the Doctor holds the trigger down, the adjustment can be delivered to the joint while the patient is in motion.

This practical option gives a new dimension to the Chiropractic Adjustment! Force of thrust is easily varied, depending on the patients’s needs. In general, this technique is considered a gentle option.

Active Release®

Athletic injuries and many muscle-related conditions respond quickly and permanently with this state-of-the-art soft tissue technique. read more»

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let us know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
