My Techniques

My primary type of treatment is the chiropractic “adjustment”. This is done by hand to produce movement to areas of the spine that have been structurally “stressed or kinked”. These spinal bones “jam-up” to compensate for spinal dis-ease. Removing these “kinks” restores movement and relieves back stress and pain.

Chiropractic adjusting technique.

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

The object is to restore your spine to a more normal postural position, allowing for free moving spinal joints. If left untreated, these stress points, or ‘kinks’, lead to further spinal disease and arthritis. I specialize in corrective chiropractic care. Utilizing radiographs, we can pinpoint areas of present spinal change and disc disease.

By repositioning the spinal bones correctly, pain decreases. motion is increased and overall function improved. Our objective is to reduce spinal tension, slowing down the rate of spinal breakdown. We also use physiotherapy to facilitate our adjustment, helping the body hold our adjustments longer. Occasionally we suggest custom foot orthotics, corrective exercises or nutritional counseling when needed.

Though my primary adjustment is by hand, occasionally we have need for other, non-force techniques. If you have a preference, please let me know.
