How We Do It

With over 50 years of combined experience we offer a variety of chiropractic techniques. These techniques allow us to tailor our care to suit your preferences.

Chiropractic Techniques

Diversified technique

This old-school technique involves using precise hands-on thrusts aimed at restoring proper movement and alignment to the spine.

Thompson technique

For this technique a specially designed table is used. The table contains padded platforms which are designed to rise and drop a fraction of an inch allowing the Chiropractor to apply a quick thrust to make an adjustment.

Activator technique

The activator device is a handheld instrument which delivers a gentle impulse into the vertebral segments of the spine, or the extremities. The force feels like a light bumping sensation which stimulates very fine nerve endings in the joints to create a similar effect of more vigorous techniques.

Gonstead technique

This hands-on technique is another old-school method involving adjusting the spine. This technique relies upon measurements from postural x-rays.

Sacro-Occipital Technique

This technique employs a system of wedges which support the body in correcting misalignment. It is named after the two important bones at each end of the spine and their interrelationship.

Upper Cervical Toggle

This is an upper cervical specific technique, meaning that the first bone of the neck is adjusted manually.

Atlas Orthogonal

The Atlas Orthogonal (AO) Technique is an instrument based upper cervical technique and relies upon x-rays analysis as well. This highly sophisticated approach to spinal care focuses on the relationship of the Atlas vertebra (the first vertebra of the neck) with the base of the skull and the Axis vertebra (the second bone of the neck). This area is the most significant and important area of the spinal column. Dysfunction at this level can affect the whole body in a variety of ways, ranging from spinal pain, to headaches, and much more.

Chiropractic improves the function of the spine and the nervous system – not just after injury but all throughout life. Get well and stay well.
