Our Chiropractic Techniques

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Chiropractic adjusting image

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

Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust. read more»

ArthroStim

This hand-held instrument applies a series of highly controlled “taps” to misaligned vertebral segments, avoiding the twisting, turning or “cracking” of spinal joints. read more»

Cranial Chiropractic

Not only is your skull made up of many bones, their ability to move can profoundly affect your health which is why we rely on this powerful technique. read more»

Pain Neutralization Technique (PNT)

Pain Neutralization Technique uses light pressure to eliminate chronic pain through newly uncovered neurological reflexes. The technique was created by a Chiropractic Doctor in Colorado, Dr. Steve Kaufman.

Dr. Kaufman states, “I’m a chiropractor practicing many techniques (including acupuncture) for almost 30 years. I started treating trigger points and myofascial pain in 1974. (A trigger point is an area in a muscle that’s painful when pressed; it very often causes a patient’s pain or other symptoms.) I learned many techniques to treat patient’s trigger points and often ease their symptoms, but I always wondered if there wasn’t something like a “magic switch” that could turn pain off like a light.

In 1989 I set out on a research project to find this “Holy Grail”. The goal: find some way to easily turn off pain instantly, using only light pressure on neurological reflexes.

It took more than a decade, but we have now developed numerous procedures that seem to do just that, in many cases.

I’ve discovered a method of combining several simple, standard neurological reflexes to immediately change the tone in a painful muscle, eliminating many chronic exquisitely painful areas and symptoms. The doctors and practitioners (D.C.s, L.Acs, M.D.s, D.O.s, P.T.s, N.D.s and body workers) who have taken my course on Pain Neutralization Techniques™ (P.N.T.) acclaim this as a major breakthrough in the treatment of pain. Many of these doctors have extensive training in most of the other healing techniques taught. Most have practiced for decades.”

Extremities

While many health problems can be traced to the spine, wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees other joints of the body can be helped. read more»
