Our Chiropractic Techniques & Services

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:

Medical Acupuncture

This form of acupuncture is often used in combination with Chiropractic manipulation and soft tissue therapy. Medical acupuncture treatment combines well-established traditional acupuncture concepts with clinical detection of biomechanical and muscle deficiencies to help ‘re-wire’ areas of dysfunction.

Acupuncture therapy stimulates the nervous system to relieve tight muscles, improve blood circulation, stimulate tissue healing and reduce overall stress in the body. Acupuncture can be very effective for many muscle and joint issues such as tennis elbow, sciatica, shoulder pain and headaches.

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy is a painless treatment modality that works at the
cellular level to help heal injured tissues and relieve pain or
discomfort. Laser Therapy may be used with other forms of chiropractic
treatment.

Graston Technique®

The Graston Technique® incorporates a patented form of
instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables the
chiropractor to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and
restrictions that affect normal function.

Cranial Adjustment

Your cranium is made up of eight separate bones that lock together like
puzzle pieces to create a protective shell for your brain. Cranial bone
problems may arise for a variety of reasons such as falls, work
accidents, sports and even bumps experienced in childhood. Chiropractic
care for cranial bones usually involves subtle and gentle adjustive and
mobilization techniques to help remove any restrictions between these
bones and restore proper joint alignment.

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let us know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
