Upper Cervical Specific- Grostic, Orthospinology
Utilizing “image guided adjusting” determined from x-ray analysis, our chiropractors are able to gently and precisely correct neck problems that are often found to affect the entire body’s health and well being.
The Gonstead technique centers around the chiropractor’s ability to determine and adjust the major problem areas of the spine, accurately and precisely. These areas are call subluxations or structural shifts of the spine. Attention to uniqueness between patients are studied in order to allow them to recover quickly and painlessly. By restoring optimal spinal alignment, our chiropractors are able to relieve nerve system problems through this technique.
The Thompson Drop Technique uses a drop piece to enhance the doctor’s adjustment to the injured or misaligned area of the spine. A gentle thrust is delivered at the same time the section drops slightly. This allows for precise and comfortable adjustments in all areas of the body from the neck to the low back.
Activator Methods Technique
Activator Methods Technique is a gentle, low-force chiropractic adjustment that uses a handheld instrument to deliver a small impulse to the problem joint. This technique can be used on the spine as well as the shoulders, elbows, wrist, hips, knees, and feet. Sports injuries and children are commonly adjusted with this technique.
Flexion-Distraction, (F/D) is a chiropractic treatment for back pain. Flexion-Distraction is a technique that can help with low back issues including sciatica, disc herniations and nerve compressions. This technique does not introduce a force to the spine, but instead uses a gentle pulling and pushing sensation into the low back, helping to correct spinal misalignments and increase the space between spinal segments.
A common saying from our patients is, “Oh I wish I had this at home! It feels so good!” This technique has become one of their favorites for low back problems.
Webster Technique is commonly used during pregnancy, although it can be useful for anyone. The technique involves a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and adjustment. The goal is to reduce the effects of the sacral subluxation/ S-I joint dysfunction and facilitate neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis. Sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. Sacral adjustments may have a positive effect on all of these. The technique is safe and gentle for mother and baby.
