Manipulative therapy which is also known as the manual chiropractic adjustment. Our doctors use their hands to manually manipulate the spine or extremity joints with speed and precision. “Manipulation is an orthopedic procedure. Our doctors deliver the manipulation with the “skill and precision of a surgeon”. The manipulation is painless but dependant on the patient’s ability to relax.

Not all pain is caused by obvious injuries, some pain may stem from pain generated by the soft tissue. Myofascia is membrane that connects your muscles to muscles and overlying skin. When myofascial tissue becomes stiff, it may restrict movement in both the muscles and joints, which can lead to joint and muscle pain. This technique involves stretching and applying manual pressure to areas of myofascial tissues that are tight and stiff. Our doctors use many different techniques including: FNOR, Trigenics, Scrapping and their own techniques that have evolved over 25 years of doing hands on soft tissue treatment.
Drop table technique:
Drop-table technique which is also known as the “Thompson Technique” is a more gentle chiropractic treatment. This involves a specifically adapted table with padded platforms that are designed to drop a fraction of an inch when a chiropractor applies a gentle thrust. This involves less powerful spinal maneuvering and slower, low-velocity movements that allow the affected joint to stay within its passive range of motion.
The activator method is a chiropractic technique that utilizes an activator. An Activator is a small handheld instrument that delivers a gentle impulse into the vertebral segments of the spine, or extremities. The force feels like a light thumping sensation.This is commonly regarded as a softer chiropractic technique and is very comfortable to the patient.
Trigenics is an advanced neurological muscle assessment, treatment, and training system. It resets the brain to relieve pain, increase strength and mobility. It has profound effects on “Frozen Shoulder and chronic conditions with severe restriction in Range of Motion.”
