Our Techniques

Our medical professionals employ a wide range of proven techniques for each individual case. Below, you’ll find a brief explanation of the popular chiropractic techniques we use at our practice.

Diversified Technique

Our doctors use mainly their hands to adjust the segments that are sticky or not moving properly.  They also employ instuments that can deliver the adjustment quicker than the human hands can.

Trigger Point
The primary purpose of Trigger Point Therapy is to reduce the pain that results from hypersensitive muscles. Trigger points are identified by gently pressing on the surface of the skin, sensing the texture of the underlying muscle.

A trigger point is like a knot in the muscle, buried deep in the muscle tissue. There is still some uncertainty as to what causes it and what it is, but with pressure on the trigger point the tension can be relieved. 


IASTM

IASTM, or Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Massage, is where the doctor will use a stainless steel tool to relax the muscle and facial layers. This technique is done directly on the skin with some kind of lotion to allow the tool to glide smoothly over the surface. 

 

Drop Table
This technique makes use of specialized drop-piece mechanisms in the table to assist the adjustment. Individual cushions or "drop pieces" located along the table support each area of the spine until the thrust is given. Then, each drop-piece gently gives way, reducing the pressure needed to move a specific spinal segment.

Additional therapies
Our office employs many physical therapy modalities, including ultrasound and electrical muscle stimulation to complement our other techniques.
