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:

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


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»

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

We use the most modern physical therapy modalities including ultrasound, electric muscle stimulation, spinal mechanical traction, etc. I also use various muscle soft tissue techniques to aid in healing and recovery. Once we get patients to a stable point, I believe we need to add a low tech muscle strengthening program to the treatment plan. This is not to make you into Arnold Schwarzenegger, but to help keep your spine stable and strong. This will help lessen the chance of re-injury

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. Contact us today to get started!
