How We Adjust

It’s not about us…it’s all about You.

The chiropractic adjustment is all about reducing stress on your Nerve System so that the body can balance and heal. It’s important to us that you feel comfortable during your adjustments. For this reason, we employ a variety of techniques—both hands-on and instrument-based.

Hands-on techniques

In these techniques, your chiropractor puts their hands on your body and chooses the right place,
right direction and right amount of pressure to adjust your spine.

Thompson drop table technique You lie on an adjusting table with segmented drops, which we use to lower the chosen part of your spine quickly enabling a strong adjustment when your chiropractor applies force.
Diversified A high-velocity, low-amplitude adjustment to restore proper movement and alignment to your spine.
Gonstead This technique aims to locate and correct any interference to the nervous system caused by vertebral subluxation.
Toggle A gentle technique where your chiropractor places their hands lightly on one area of your body then performs a fast but light thrust and quickly removes their hands.
Logan basic A light force, full-spine adjusting procedure to correct misalignment in the spine or pelvis

Instrument-based techniques

There are now a number of instruments specifically designed for chiropractic. Instrument-based techniques are growing in popularity because they allow greater precision and control.

Activator protocol This uses a small handheld device (the Activator) to deliver a gentle pulse of force to a chosen part of the spine.
Torque release technique A low-force adjusting method using a small handheld instrument called an Integrator to improve the nervous system.
Pediatric Adjusting

Pediatric Adjusting

Children are adjusted via Torque Release Technique (TRT) evaluation and adjusting protocols, and by using an instrument called the Integrator. In rare cases with older children (early teens), manual adjustments may be given but very rarely on a regular basis.

Webster’s Technique for Pregnancy and Post-Partum

As a mom-to-be, you naturally want the best possible pregnancy and delivery experience for both you and your baby. Webster’s Technique is a chiropractic method designed to promote balance in the pelvis of pregnant women.

By alleviating the tension and misalignments in the pelvic area,
this technique provides many benefits for both mom and baby. Pregnant women who undergo this type of chiropractic care experience reduced back pain, improved mobility, and better overall health during their pregnancy. Additionally, the growing body of case reports and clinical evidence has been shown to considerably decrease the likelihood of caesarean section and other birth interventions (1,3) and decrease labor time (2).

Websters technique

This method offers a safe and effective way for expectant mothers to prepare their bodies for childbirth and proper positioning of their babies for delivery. With the goal of balancing the pelvis, Webster’s Technique is a must-have in any comprehensive prenatal care plan.
