Our Chiropractic Techniques
We use a number of highly-effective traditional adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience. These techniques are age appropriate, gentle and safe.
The primary adjusting techniques we use include:
Diversified (Manual Adjustment):
After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints.
Activator Methods (Instrumental/Gentler Technique)
This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust.
AK Applied Kinesiology
Testing the strength of specific muscles of your body helps us find structural, chemical and mental problems and monitor your results.
Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine.
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.
