Our Chiropractic Techniques and Therapies

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 judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Chiropractic adjusting image.

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»

AK Applied Kinesiology

Testing the strength of specific muscles of your body helps us find structural, chemical and mental problems and monitor your results. read more»

Cox Flexion-Distraction

We use a special table so we can traction your spine, opening up the spacing between spinal vertebrae and relieving pressure to spinal. read more»

Ultrasound

This high-tech deep tissue “micro-massage” helps reduce swelling, increase blood flow, decrease pain, reduce joint stiffness and stimulate cell-repair. read more»

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

We use this special type of low level electrical current to stimulate supporting muscles of your spine, reducing inflammation and spasm. read more»

Mechanical Traction

We gently add motion to each vertebral joint to increase circulation, reduce scar tissue and enhance the effectiveness of your adjustments

Myofascial Release

We’ll find tender areas where muscles and connective tissue are producing pain and restricted movement and gently release it. read more»

Trigger Point

By applying direct pressure or stretching of the affected muscle, we can reduce muscle spasms and flush out pooled blood and accumulated toxins. read more»


Some additional services and techniques we use in our office include Massage Therapy, Spinal Decompression, and Cold Laser Therapy.

Decompression

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical answer for disc related syndromes of your lumbar or cervical spine. DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy treatments utilize sophisticated, read more»

Massage Therapy

While chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine and its impact on the nervous system, massage therapy focuses on the 650 muscles of the body. Both disciplines work together to help keep the body in proper alignment, balance and function. read more»

Cold Laser Therapy

There is a growing acceptance of Laser Thearapy and there are numerous benefits. It is non-toxic, non-invasive, easy to apply, doesn’t create side effects or pain, it’s extremely safe, cost effective, and highly effective for patient. It is the superior alternative to Analgesics, NSAID’s, and other medications in addition to reducing the need for surgery.

Therapeutic Laser Biological Effects include:

  • Rapid Cell Growth – Laser light accelerates cellular reproduction and growth.
  • Faster Wound Healing – Laser light stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue.
  • Increased Metabolic Activity – Higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells and thus greater production of the basic food source for cells, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP).
  • Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation – Laser light reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from: cuts, scratches, burns or post surgery.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Action – Laser light reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints to give enhanced joint mobility.
  • Increased Vascular Activity – Laser light induces temporary vasodilation increasing blood flow to damaged areas.
  • Stimulated Nerve Function – Slow recovery of nerve function in damaged tissue can result in “dead” limbs or numb areas. Laser light speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection to bring the numb areas back to life.
