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.

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»

Kinesiotaping

Kinesiotaping is a state of the art taping method used by many professional athletes to help prevent and rehab injuries. The new tape is lighter than your skin so your body doesn’t even recognize it is there. We have the training and ability to tape up to 20 joints of the human body. This helps the active person who is trying to prevent injuries, but also helps someone who has a current injury and wants to take the strain off of that particular muscle or joint. Kinesiotaping helps in the following ways; Dynamically supports better postural muscles, prevents harmful ranges of motion, reduces strain on the affected muscle, decreases the perception of pain, improves lymphatic flow and also improves superficial blood flow to the affected area.

Electrical Stimulation

Electrical stimulation uses an electrical current to cause a single of group of muscles to contract. By placing electrodes on the skin in various locations we can recruit the appropriate muscle fibers. Contracting the muscle via electrical stimulation helps strengthen the affected muscle. Along with increasing muscle strength, it can also relax muscle spasms and increase blood flow to the affected area.
