Our Techniques

Our medical professionals employ a wide range of proven techniques for each individual case. Below, you’ll find a brief explanation of the popular chiropractic techniques we use at our practice.

Thompson Technique, developed by Dr. J. Clay Thompson D.C., has evolved into a system of analysis and means of adjusting the spinal cord. The combination produces precise adjustment to the spinal levels determined by Dr. Carlo.

Activator Technique, developed by Dr Fuhr D.C. This technique is a light force gentle adjustment. Ideally used for patient's with osteoperosis or prefer a gentle adjustment. A spring loaded, adjustable tension, hand held instrument is used to make a precise adjustment to the spinal levels.

Massage Therapy with Trigger Point Technique
The primary purpose of Trigger Point Therapy is to reduce the pain that results from hypersensitive muscles. Trigger points are identified by gently pressing on the surface of the skin, sensing the texture of the underlying muscle. Deep Tissue as well as relaxation massage is available with our massage therapist, Liz Williams LMT

A trigger point is like a knot the size of a pea, buried deep in the muscle tissue. It is made up of lactic acid, a normal byproduct of muscular activity, which sometimes gets trapped in the muscle from physical, chemical or emotional stress.

Lumbar Flexion/Distraction
A technique developed by Dr. Cox D.C. There is a specially designed table that gently treats the lower lumbar discs. This technique helps to slowly decompress the lumbar spine.

It is very effective for treating herniated discs, sciatica, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease.

Drop Table
This technique makes use of specialized drop-piece mechanisms in the table to assist the adjustment. Individual cushions or "drop pieces" located along the table support each area of the spine until the thrust is given. Then, each drop-piece gently gives way, reducing the pressure needed to move a specific spinal segment.

Weight Loss and Reflexology
Patients that wish to lose 15 to 20 pounds quickly can utilize our weight loss program. The program consists of all natural supplements that detoxify the body, convert the fat-soluble cell to water soluble, as well as increase the metabolism without stimulants. Reflexology is utilized to decrease appetite as sugar cravings.

Additional therapies
Our office employs many physical therapy modalities, including ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation and Cold Laser therapy to complement our other techniques.
