What is Flexion-Distraction?

This technique uses a special chiropractic table that allows for a very gentle traction/stretching of the spine from head to toe.  It helps increase spinal motion and resolves disc bulges and disc herniations with a safe, gentle, non-force treatment that take pressure off the spinal nerves that may be injured or dysfunctional. It has been proven to lessen symptoms of sciatica and disc issues and has saved many patients from ongoing discomfort, temporary disability and spinal surgery.

What is the Diversified Technique?

Diversified Chiropractic Technique (DCT) is the most commonly used adjustment technique by chiropractors, as reported by the American Chiropractic Association. This gentle, hands-on approach is characterized by a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust. DCT is differentiated from other techniques in that its objective is to restore proper movement and alignment of spine and joint dysfunction.

What is the Activator Technique?

The Activator Method uses a small, hand-held instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to deliver a gentle, low-force impulse to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted spinal vertebra or joint.

There are two theoretical advantages of this technique.
1 – The instrument is so quick that the body’s muscles are less likely to tense in response, and resist the treatment, thus making it more effective.
2 – The applied force is localized and does not add any additional torque or bending movement to the joint.

What is the ArthroStim Adjustment?

The ArthroStim technique is another alternative to manual adjustments. This small, hand-held device delivers repetitive impulses to the body, making it stronger and faster than a typical single-thrust adjustment, and thus more comfortable. It also delivers a 12-14 hertz impulse, the same brain waves that are associated with meditation and relaxation, so the brain responds favorably to treatments.  Arthrostim adjustments can be very effective for children, elderly or sensitive individuals.
