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:

Chiropractic adjusting image

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

Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust.
More about the Activator Method »

Active Release®

Athletic injuries and many muscle-related conditions respond quickly and permanently with this state-of-the-art soft tissue technique.
More about Active Release® »

Acupuncture

The perfect adjunct to your chiropractic care, we use acupuncture for meridian balance, symptom relief and many organic health complaints.
More about Acupuncture »

AK Applied Kinesiology

Testing the strength of specific muscles of your body helps us find structural, chemical and mental problems and monitor your results.
More about Applied Kinesiology »

ArthroStim

This hand-held instrument applies a series of highly controlled “taps” to misaligned vertebral segments, avoiding the twisting, turning or “cracking” of spinal joints.
More about ArthroStim »

Atlas Orthogonal

After studying the relationship between your skull and spine, our instrument uses a gentle percussive force to move the uppermost bone of your spine.

B.E.S.T.

Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique helps your body “re-synchronize” itself and discard defensive physical and emotional patterns from the past.
More about B.E.S.T. »

Bio Cranial Technique

Not only is your skull made up of many bones, their ability to move can profoundly affect your health which is why we rely on this powerful technique.

CBP®

Clinical Biomechanics of Posture® is focused on producing improved posture, balance, spinal alignment and restoration of essential spinal curves.

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.
More about Cox Flexion-Distraction »

Decompression

Our specially-equipped table will ever-so-slowly stretch your spine. And then relax it. Stretch. And relax. Excellent for disc cases.
More about Decompression »

Diversified

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

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

We use this special type of low level electrical current to stimulate supporting muscles of your spine, reducing inflammation and spasm.
More about Electrical Muscle Stimulation »

Extremities

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

Foot Levelers

Problems in your feet can create compensatory problems in back and neck. These custom orthotics can make a dramatic difference.

Gonstead

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

Graston

Using these curved stainless steel instruments, we can successfully resolve adhesions and scar tissue, offering a pleasant sense of release.
More about Graston »

Grostic

We’ll study the relationship between your head and the two uppermost bones of your spine and then document your improvement with before and after X-rays.
More about Grostic »

Impulse

This handheld instrument delivers a carefully measured and directed thrust that is many times faster than is possible by hand, so less force needed.
More about Impulse »

Intersegmental Traction

We gently add motion to each vertebral joint to increase circulation, reduce scar tissue and enhance the effectiveness of your adjustments.
More about Intersegmental Traction »

Koren Specific

By testing or challenging specific muscles, we can determine the exact location of lost structural integrity and many non-spinal health problems.
More about Koren Specific »

Laser

This high-tech tool produces light in the red portion of the spectrum, which has been shown to assist in the healing of soft tissues.
More about Laser »

Logan Basic

Applying a light contact to the sacrum, relaxes the muscles and allows the “foundation of your spine” to support your body properly.
More about Logan Basic »

Massage Therapy

Working hand in glove with chiropractic, therapeutic massage can improve muscle tone and help make lasting changes to the spine. Plus it feels great!
More about Massage Therapy »

Manipulation Under Anesthesia

Selected patients who suffer from chronic spinal conditions or longstanding scar tissue may be good candidates for MUA.
More about Manipulation Under Anesthesia »

Motion Palpation

As you turn and bend we’ll apply a light pressure to the joint being tested with our fingertips to feel how well things are moving.
More about Motion Palpation »

Myofascial Release

We’ll find tender areas where muscles and connective tissue are producing pain and restricted movement and gently release it.
More about Myofascial Release »

N E T

Neuro Emotional Technique helps identify “stuck” emotional patterns that are often responsible for aches, pains and even self-defeating habits.
More about the Neuro Emotional Technique »

Network Spinal Analysis

Amazingly, a simple tap along your spine as you inhale and exhale, prompts your body to embrace a more peaceful, resourceful state.
More about Network Spinal Analysis »

NUCCA

Relying on precise mathematical calculations, we deliver a specific and highly-controlled contact to the upper bone of your spine.
More about NUCCA »

Nutritional Response Testing

We test for food alergies and recommend whole food supplements that contain trace nutrients missing in today’s factory farm produce.
More about Nutritional Response Testing »

Palmer Package

We’re experts on a wide range of effective adjusting approaches taught at the Palmer College of Chiropractic, the birthplace of chiropractic.

Pettibon

Your biggest enemy is gravity. We’ll evaluate how your spine has adapted and take pictures throughout your care to document your progress.
More about Pettibon »

Pierce

Instead of single thrusts, we’ll use a handheld instrument to deliver a series of rapid taps to just the right places along your spine.
More about Pierce »

Shock Wave Therapy

Shock wave therapy is a nonsurgical chiropractic treatment that uses spurts of highly pressured acoustic (sound) waves to deliver a powered force to painful areas on the body.
More about Shock Wave Therapy »

SIGMA Instrument Methods

Our computerized instrument will analyze and adjust your spine, tapping on each vertebra, “listening” as each one assumes a healthier disposition.
More about the SIGMA Instrument Methods »

SOT

Sacro Occipital Technique helps normalize the relationship between the pelvis and the head, using gravity to make the necessary correction.
More about SOT »

Subluxation Station

This technology helps us assess your nervous system by measuring tiny amounts of heat and electrical differences along your spine.
More about the Subluxation Station »

Thompson

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

Toggle Recoil

While lying on your side, we’ll use our hands to deliver a quick contact to the upper bones of your spine. Your body does the rest.
More about Toggle Recoil »

Torque Release

With a gentle touch and a light thrusting by hand or an instrument called an Integrator, the brain/body connection is enhanced.
More about Torque Release »

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.
More about Trigger Point »

Ultrasound

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

Webster

By releasing the stress on a pregnant woman’s pelvis, the uterus and surrounding ligaments relax, permitting the baby to turn naturally.
