Less Pain, More Life

Our Chiropractic Techniques

Our chiropractors use a variety of techniques to provide the best care to each individual patient. Our techniques include:

 

Activator Method

The Activator Method uses a small, hand-held instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to deliver a gentle impulse force to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted spinal vertebra or joint. To find out more, click here

 

Diversified

This technique is the most commonly used and is the one probably most familiar to patients. The Diversified manipulation/adjustment entails a high velocity, low-amplitude thrust delivered by hand and possibly with assistance from a table or block. To find out more, click here

 

Drop Piece

This technique uses the law of inertia to help adjust joints that are not moving normally. Drop piece adjustments are lighter, gentler and without many of the twisting positions that can accompany diversified adjusting.

 

Neuro-Impulse Protocol (NIP)

NIP is a form of full body assessment that has a more neurological emphasis. The examination involves the integration of very precise chiropractic assessment techniques and detailed neurological examination. NIP adjustments are low force by nature and you will not feel or hear any cracking sounds.

 

Sacro Occipital (SOT)

Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) is a comprehensive, gentle and innovative technique of chiropractic. To find out more, click here

 

Webster (used in Pregnancy)

This technique uses a specific sacral adjustment to help facilitate the mother's pelvic alignment and nerve system function. This in turn balances pelvic muscles and ligaments, and reduces torsion to the uterus.

 

Flexion Distraction 

Is used to treat many conditions of the lumbar spine. It is a non-surgical technique aimed at increasing spinal motion and resolving disc bulges and disc herniations.
