ServicesOur 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
Prone Specific-Outstanding results Prone specific is a gentle hands-on technique that is pleasant and comfortable to the patient. There is no uncomfortanle twisting. This approach moves only the vertabrae that need to be moved, not all the vertabrae in the spinal region. Patients new to chiropractic and life-long chiropractic patients love the results obtained with prone specific technique. The Thompson Technique Developed by Dr. J. Clay Thompson, has evolved into a system of analysis and means of adjusting the spinal cord. The combination produces precise adjustment.
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 the size of a pea, buried deep in the muscle tissue. It is made up of lactic acid, a normal byproduct of muscular activity, which sometimes gets trapped in the muscle from physical, chemical or emotional stress.
Intersegmental Traction We us this therapy to help exercise the muscles and ligaments of the spine, while also stimulated important acupuncture points.
