Adjustments

Diversified Manual Technique

Diversified technique is the most commonly used adjustment technique by chiropractic doctors. Diversified is characterized by a high-velocity, low amplitude thrust that corrects misalignments in the spine and joints which cause nerve interference in the body and restores proper movement and function.

Koren Specific Technique:

This is a low force specific technique that gently corrects spinal & structural systems. Treatment can be directed at any type of structural, functional, mental or emotional imbalance and also has a protocol for cranial bone adjusting.  KST can be used standing, sitting or laying down to be able to correct misalignments with and without gravity acting on the body. This technique uses a handheld adjusting tool known as an Arthrostim with produces a gentle tapping motion used to correct misalignments.

Activator Methods:

This technique uses a handheld instrument that has been designed to deliver a controlled light thrust that is specifically applied to the problem area. Activator adjustments are precise and suitable for all types of patients ranging from newborns to seniors.

Network Spinal Analysis:

NSA is an exciting, new development in chiropractic associated with long-term benefits to health, emotional state and quality of life. This technique uses precise, gentle, low force contacts along the spine to help the brain connect more effectively with the body allowing each patient to release tension from their bodies. It is a safe, gentle and effective approach for patients of all ages.

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture

Contemporary Acupuncture uses small thin needles that are inserted into various points in the body, including hands, feet and scalp, and left in place for a period of time before removal. At times, a small electrical device may be attached to one or more needles to aid in the treatment. In contemporary acupuncture, your chiropractor treats you only after a conventional medical/neuro-functional diagnosis has been made. The doctor will use acupuncture as a treatment modality along with other chiropractic approaches, as needed. The contemporary acupuncture practitioner applies treatment following a conventional (scientific) view and regards the acupuncture as having certain local tissue effects as well as providing segmental analgesia, extra-segmental analgesia, as well as central regulatory effects on the nervous system.

Diagnostic Testing

Surface EMG: 

The spinal scan technology we use in our office helps us detect areas of nerve interference in the body. The scan will measure your function structurally and muscularly during every day life, as well as thermally, which is an indicator of deeper inflammation in the body.  It also allows us to document and monitor your treatment results. These tests do not hurt and do not utilize any needles, electric shock or heat. With spinal scans, you are able to see the changes that are occurring within your body, the healing that is taking place, as well as any other problem areas or dysfunctions that may arise (even if there is no pain yet). It will be easier to understand the amount and type of care you need to benefit for both short term and long term results that you are looking for.

Gait Scan:

The Gait Scan is a state of the art technology which helps to assess and analyze your feet, the way you walk and how you distribute your weight during your every day activities. It helps to detect abnormal foot alignment and gait issues which could be corrected with custom made orthotics.

X-rays:

If x-rays are indicated the doctor will discuss this with you. X-rays can help to confirm your diagnosis, provide a prognosis of your results and help the doctor design a treatment program that will help you get better faster.
