Our Techniques

Manual Adjustments

Using their hands, a chiropractor will apply a specific and precise force to a fixated or locked up joint. This can help gradually restore and regain movement and motion to the joint and surrounding structures, muscles and ligaments. This is a highly effective technique used to improve lower back pain, neck pain, headaches/migraines and extremity conditions.

ABC Manual Technique

ABC Manual Technique is a technique that is exceptionally beneficial with patients who experience pain, movement dysfunction and body compensation due to poor posture, the technique targets and aims to correct misalignments in the spine that would most likely contribute to poor posture.

Activator Technique

Using a hand-held instrument, the chiropractor will use the activator to stimulate a joint, muscle or nerve by delivering a quick, low-force impulse to the affected area with the goal of reducing pain, restoring motion and improving function. This tool is most beneficial and used predominantly for extremity conditions.

Hyperice Muscle Therapy

The Hypervolt delivers a percussive massage to muscles and joints in order to accelerate warm-up and recovery, it delivered three speeds and aims to improve motion and flexibility of the affected muscle/joint, reduce soreness and stiffness and enhance muscle performance.

Pelvic Blocking Technique

Using padded blocks on the pelvis, the technique can address misalignments in the hip/pelvis that may lead to a variety of pain and dysfunction. These may be leg length discrepancies, Lower back pain, hip pain, knee problems, ovary/testicular pain, l and general tension in the body.

Drop Piece Technique

Using a special table with sectioned, resistance setting benches, the table will drop slightly, and you will hear a ‘popping noise’.
