Techniques

The goal and purpose of all chiropractic is to correct spinal subluxation and nerve balance pathways.

Diversified: The traditional technique involves adjusting the appropriate spinal levels by hand. Your
doctor determines the exact level, segment, and direction of the adjustments and with a very precise thrust, restores the vertebra to position. This quite often produces a small “pop” sound, which is created by the release of gas between joints.

Activator/Torque Release: These techniques are both performed using a specialized instrument for the adjustment. Both techniques appear to be similar from the patients perspective, however each technique has it’s own indicators for diagnoses, location, and timing of the correction.

Flexion Distraction: Cox Technique is a hands-on spinal manipulation performed by a chiropractor. A specialized chiropractic table uses flexion and distraction movements to create spinal decompression. It is prescribed for the following conditions:

• Disc herniation
• Facet syndrome
• Stenosis
• Post-surgical continued pain (pain after back surgery)

Deep Tissue Release: Tissue release is used to physically break down muscle ‘knots’ or adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) that can disrupt circulation, cause pain and inflammation, and limit motion. It can be performed by hand, or with the use of tools.

Based on the patient’s condition , age, and pain level, we will recommend the techniques that we feel are most appropriate. If the patient has a strong preference for a specific technique we will, when possible, try to meet their request.
