Full Spine Technique

Full Spine (or may be referred to as Diversified Technique) is the traditional chiropractic technique using HVLA manipulation, which many patients who have been adjusted in the past may be familiar with. The focus of this technique is on restoration of normal bio-mechanical function, and correction of subluxation.

Thompson Technique

The Thompson Technique uses a drop table to assist with the adjustment and provides for gentle and effective adjustments.  This technique involves analyzing the length of the legs to determine the origin of the imbalance.

Activator Technique

Our office utilizes the Activator which involves the use of a hand-held instrument to make the adjustment.  It is very gentle and no “popping” noise can be heard.The doctor uses different protocols to detect spinal joint dysfunction, analyze leg length, detect body mechanics issues, and test reflexes. This technique along with the Thompson Technique are often used with children and seniors due to its gentleness.

Adjusting Techniques

In our office, the comfort of our patients is a top priority.  We utilize several different adjusting techniques to compliment the individual needs of our patients.  If you have any questions or concerns, all you need to do is ask the doctors.
