Chiropractic Care

woman getting chiropractic careChiropractic is a form of natural healthcare that helps to keep your spine healthy and aligned. When subluxations (misalignments) are present in the spine, pressure is put on nerves. When the misalignments are corrected through the chiropractic adjustment, everything goes back to functioning as it should. The most important part is that your nervous system, which controls every other body system—can work at 100%.

Our Primary Techniques

The main methods we use are as follows:

Diversified

After determining which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a precise manual thrust is performed to free up “stuck” spinal joints.

Gonstead

This full spine approach relies on X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results.

Thompson drop table

Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine.

Cox Flexion-Distraction

This is a gentle, non-force adjusting method that includes the use of a unique table. The movements of this table assist in the traction of the spine. The method opens up compressed spinal discs and reduces pressure on facet joints of the spine.

Myofascial Release

We’ll locate tender areas where muscles and connective tissue are producing pain and restricted movement and gently release them.

Activator Methods®

This technique uses the Activator Adjusting Instrument—a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a steady low-force, high-speed thrust.

Because this approach is dramatically faster than manual adjustments, the body rarely tightens to resist the adjustment. As a result, your adjustment will be more comfortable and effective. The Activator is also helpful for adjusting elbows, wrists, knees and other joints of the body.

Extremities

While many health problems can be traced to the spine, wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees other joints of the body can be helped.

We will choose the techniques that will fit the patient the best.

Providing Personalized Plans

The care we provide is always customized to each patient. After your chiropractor performs a detailed history and exam, they will come up with a diagnosis and then construct an individually tailored treatment plan.

At every visit, you will be reevaluated through orthopedic exams to see how you respond to care. We want to make sure you’re making progress and strides toward achieving your goals.
