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:

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»

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. read more»

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»

SOT

Extremities

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»

Hydraulic Resistance Exercise

This is a different form of resistance that uses hydraulic pistons to provide resistance (instead of weight). Resistance is created by how (hard or fast) you either (push or pull) the exercise arms which controls oil flow through dual fluid cylinders. Since there is resistance on both the push and pull side of each exercise, This allows for two different opposing muscle groups to work almost simultaneously! This is good for the user because you get a well-balanced workout, increase the cardiovascular component of your workout, and cut your time in the gym in half. Seniors and anyone that has an injury or other pre-existing conditions such as arthritis or other joint and muscle injuries can use the equipment with ease because movement is smooth and never requires you to exceed a weight or range of motion than you are safely and comfortably capable of. This allows you to strengthen your muscles without putting any undue stress on your joints.

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»

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»
