Chiropractic Adjusting Techniques

Adjusting Techniques

Orthogonal Chiropractic (Board Certified)

Utilizing state-of-the-art, percussion and sound wave adjusting, the Orthogonal procedure offers patients a gentle and precise treatment for the correction of upper cervical subluxations.


Zenith Drop

The Thompson Drop Technique uses a drop table to enhance the motion of an area to be adjusted. The chiropractor applies a quick thrust at the same time the section drops. It allows the Doctor to safely, specifically, and comfortably adjust the joints of the body. The dropping of the table allows for a lighter adjustment without the twisting positions that can accompany other.


Activator (Proficiency Rated)

Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique is a gentle, low-force approach to chiropractic care that uses a small handheld spring-loaded instrument to delivers a small impulse to the joint in question. The technique had been used safely on patients of all ages since the late 1960’s, bringing relief to people with a variety of health concerns. Because of its effectiveness and gentle nature, the Activator method has grown to become the world’s most widely-used instrument chiropractic technique.


Gonstead

The focus of the Gonstead adjustment is to be as specific, precise and accurate as possible, addressing only the problem areas (areas of subluxation). Great care is taken to ensure a bio-mechanically correct position and precise thrust to provide the most accurate and painless adjustment possible. It is the goal of your Gonstead doctor to restore and maintain optimal health by locating and correcting any interference to the nervous system caused by vertebral subluxation.


Flexion Distraction

Flexion-Distraction, (F/D) is a gentle, chiropractic treatment procedure utilized for back pain. Flexion-Distraction is a safe alternative to back surgery for those 95% of patients whose conditions do not demand surgical intervention. The doctor is in control of the treatment movements at all times.

Flexion-Distraction creates a "push, pull, pumping" effect on the space between the discs in your spine reducing pressure, soothing and realigning the joints and nourishing spinal discs.

"Oh I wish someone could just pull me apart!" some patients say. This technique does just that and much more in a safe, controlled manner.
