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:

Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.


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»


This full spine approach relies on X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results. read more»


Sacro Occipital Technique helps normalize the relationship between the pelvis and the head, using gravity to make the necessary correction. read more»

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release Therapy locates areas that are trapping muscle and other tissues into a painful, immobile position. Then, using our hands, a slow, gentle and sustained pressure is applied into the fascial restrictions. This manual application of persistent pressure causes soft tissues such as the fascia to elongate and return to their more normal state.

We often use Myofascial Release Therapy in cases of:

  • Back pain
  • Chronic pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Rehabilitation
  • Restricted motion
  • Carpal tunnel problems

Depending upon how much scar tissue is present, Myofascial Release can be uncomfortable at times. But hang in there! Improved flexibility and mobility are just around the corner.

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.
