Techniques


State of the Art Techniques without drugs or surgeries.


Adjustment

Manual Adjustments
This is also knows as a “hands on” or the “traditional” method. The doctor applies a specific thrust to the misaligned vertebra, the bone moves and the patient hears a popping sound.

Table Adjustments
The patient lies on a specialized table with a “drop piece.” The doctor applies a thrust to the misaligned vertebra, the table drops slightly and the adjustment is delivered with a combination of thrust and table drop. The dropping of the table allows for a light force adjustment, combined with a delivery of a high speed dynamic. This makes for an easy, light force adjustment for the patient without the twisting positions that can accompany the manual adjustment.


The Activator Method

The Activator Method
Considered the most generic method of adjusting the spine, it is accomplished with the activator instrument. The patient lies on the table face down and the doctor applies the activator instrument to the misaligned vertebra and a gentle spring driven thrust is delivered. For most patients, this form of adjustment is painless and comfortable.


Flexion / Distraction or Cox Technique

Flexion / Distraction or Cox Technique
Gentle, non-force adjusting procedure which works with the body’s natural design to aid it in healing properly.


Webster Technique

Webster Technique
A non-invasive chiropractic technique to restore proper structure and function to sacroiliac joints and pelvis as a whole. Obstetric literature has determined that correct posture of sacrum and pelvic neuro-biomechanics are important in the prevention of dystocia (difficult birth) due to breech baby positioning.


Inversion Therapy

Inversion Therapy
Inversion therapy involves hanging upside down to apply gentle traction to the spine. Not only can Inversion Therapy help to treat back pain but it can be used to reverse the negative effects of aging on the spine.


Graston Technique

Graston Technique
A method of instrument assisted soft-tissue mobilization to improve musculoskeletal function by breaking down cross-links, releasing adhesions, increasing blood flow and increasing cellular activity in the region.
