Chiropractic Techniques

  • Prone specific (gentle, comfortable and specific without twisting the patient)
  • Diversified (gentle, specific cervical adjustments with rotation)
  • Activator (low-force hand held tool that is gentle, specific and does not produce audible “popping” sounds)
  • Sacro-occipital blocking (gentle, blocking pelvis treatments for the low back and sacroiliac joints)
  • Drop-techniques (special drop device on the table that allows gentle adjustments without twisting)

Acupuncture Techniques

  • Electro-acupuncture (non-invasive, specialized electrical stimulus for treating the whole-body acupuncture points without the use of needles)
  • Needle acupuncture (single-use needles used to treat whole-body acupuncture points)

Adjunct Techniques

  • Interferential therapy (electrical muscle stimulation) may be used to help the body heal faster and address soft tissue tightness, spasms, fatigue and pain
  • Intersegmental traction may be used to stretch and mobilize the muscles and ligaments along the spine which will passively exercise the soft tissues and improve range of motion
  • Specialized home exercises are recommended for most patients once they are at the point to rebuild endurance and work on flexibility. Some patients will be given home strengthening exercises when appropriate.
