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:

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


After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints. read more»

Activator Methods®

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


Sacro Occipital Technique helps normalize the relationship between the pelvis and the head, using gravity to make the necessary correction. read more»

My Personal Approach

My approach to adjusting the patient involves a thorough evaluation to determine the best approach to my patient’s needs and tolerance. In addition to the techniques I have previously mentioned, I utilize Logan basic apex, and perform specialized evaluation procedures to determine the spine’s true function.

Based on these evaluations, I use isometric/isokinetic maneuvers that are specific for each patient individually. In this way, the patient can participate in their care at home, in support of the changes I am making in the office.

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let us know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
