Our Techniques

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

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 technique we use is:

Pierce

Pierce System of RESULTS is based on Scientific research.  Instrumentation along the spine allows us to know when to make an adjustment, along with imaging and our experience.  Our computer aided adjusting instruments are state-of-the-art.

Other Techniques we use are:

Diversified

Gonstead

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

For Pregnancy:

Webster

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

For The Feet:

Disorders of the feet that we treat:

Flat feet or Pes Planus due to the loss of one or more arches.

Hammer Toes due to ill fitting shoes.

Pronated or Supinated Foot

Plantar Fasciitis


We recommend:

Foot Levelers

Problems in your feet can create compensatory problems in knees, hips, back and neck. These custom orthotics, also known as Pelvic Stabilizers, can make a dramatic difference.

SOLE Orthotics and Sandals

These are alternative to custom orthotics and great sandals.

Choosing the right shoe.

Choosing the right shoe is first and foremost when trying to achieve happy feet.  Poor quality or poorly fitted shoes are identified as primary sources of foot pain, knee pain, back pain, even headaches!  With poor support of your pedal foundation, the center of body deviates and then compensates all the way up the kinetic chain. 


Beyond Treatment:

Intersegmental Traction

A mechanical rolling table that adds motion to each vertebral joint to increase circulation, reduce scar tissue and enhance the effectiveness of your adjustments.

Graston

We are certified GRASTON practitioners.  Using curved stainless steel instruments, we can successfully resolve fibrotic adhesions/scar tissue, offering a pleasant sense of release.  Treatments include; Plantar Fasciitis , Tennis Elbow, Golfer's Elbow, TFL Restrictions, scar tissue in the upper shoulders or lower back, and everything in between.

Myofascial Release

We'll find tender areas where muscles and connective tissue are producing pain and restricted movement and gently release it.

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.

Ultrasound

This deep tissue modality produces a "micro-massage" helping reduce swelling, increase blood flow, decrease pain, reduce joint stiffness and stimulate cell-repair.

Low-Level Laser

This high-tech modality produces light in the red portion of the spectrum, which has been shown to assist in the healing of soft tissues, reduce inflammation, reduce pain, speed healing, dramatically reduce contusions/bruising and stimulate collagen synthesis.

NOTICE:
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.
