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 findings and years of experience. We will tailor your adjustment to fit your body or comfort level!
The primary adjusting techniques we use include:
This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust. This is a very light and efficient adjustment method.
After identifying which vertebral joints have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up restricted spinal joints, as well as extremity joints.
While many health problems can be traced to the spine, wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees other joints of the body can be helped. Your body is a kinetic chain and every link should be strong! We love to treat the whole body!
We gently add motion to each vertebral joint to increase circulation, reduce scar tissue and enhance the effectiveness of your adjustments. This method can be done manually or mechanically.
As you turn and bend we’ll apply a light pressure to the joint being tested with our fingertips to feel how well things are moving. This allows your body to determine the level of pressure while maintaining a pain free range of motion.
With blocks supporting your spine in the proper position, a low force, sustained pressure is applied to mobilize the joints.
A quick light thrust will initiate a dropping table and deliver a fast, gentle adjustment to the spinal joints with minimal muscle guarding.
Trigger Point Therapy and Myofascial Release
Focal cross-friction massage to release adhesions in the tissue and improve blood flow to the affected area. This technique can be applied while the client is moving or in a stretching pose to help free up range of motion.
Ultrasound and Interferential Current may be applied as needed.
