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:



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»

Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust. read more»

Foot Levelers

Problems in your feet can create compensatory problems in back and neck. These custom orthotics can make a dramatic difference. read more»

Massage Therapy

Working hand in glove with chiropractic, therapeutic massage can improve muscle tone and help make lasting changes to the spine. Plus it feels great! read more»

Intersegmental Traction

Intersegmental Traction is a way of inducing passive motion into the spine for the purpose of flexing spinal joints, increasing mobility, and preventing disc degeneration. Intersegmental traction works as the patient lies face up on a bench table that has roller-type cams beneath its surface. These rollers can slowly travel the length of the spine, flexing the spinal joints.

Most patients find this form of therapy the be relaxing and very helpful. Since discs have a poor blood supply, they get nutrients from the circulation of fluid surrounding the spinal joints. Fixations prevent this natural circulation and can cause disc thinning and degeneration. Intersegmental traction helps increase and restore necessary elasticity and motion of the spine.

Rapid Release

Rapid Release Therapy is a nonsurgical, noninvasive, and drug free solution for the treatment of soft tissue disorders. RRT is safe, effective, and fast. It is the only high frequency vibration therapy that will reduce pain and increase range of motion by releasing scar tissue, adhesions, and easing chronic and acute muscle spasms.

This therapy is effective in reducing the pain associated with joint sprains, strains, arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, muscle spasm, nerve pain, and most musculoskeletal disorders.


This high-tech deep tissue “micro-massage” helps reduce swelling, increase blood flow, decrease pain, reduce joint stiffness and stimulate cell-repair. read more»
