Chiropractic Adjusting Techniques

 

Every patient is different.  Different conditions and symptoms can require different types of adjustments.  We offer both manual and light force adjusting techniques to help meet each patient's need.

Flexion-Distraction

Myofascial Release
 

Dr. Brock and Dr. Krista are trained in a state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves and helps to decrease problems resulting from scar tissue and muscle overuse.

Kinesiotaping
 

Kinesiotape is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused or tired muscles, and support muscles in movement on a 24-hour-a-day basis. The taping is non-restrictive and allows for full range of motion- a benefit specifically sought for athletes.

 

Just a few examples of conditions that benefit from Kinesiotape include rehabilitation from sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain (subluxation, herniated disc), knee and shoulder conditions.

Pediatric Chiropractic
 

Children are as susceptible to trauma in their spines from various activities just like adults. These microtraumas can cause abnormal joint motion in the spine, and therefore decrease their bodies’ ability to function normally.

​​Chiropractic care have been shown to help effectively treat colic, ear infections and even asthma in infants.  Early detection of abnormal joint motion can help prevent these issues and future spinal issues such as pain and scoliosis.

Chiropractic care for children uses very specific, gentle techniques and on the very young, the adjustment is as light as a finger touch.

Acupuncture is one of the main forms of treatment in traditional Chinese medicine. It involves the use of sharp, thin needles that are inserted in the body at very specific points. This process is believed to adjust and alter the body's energy flow into healthier patterns, and is used to treat a wide variety of illnesses and health conditions.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends acupuncture as an effective treatment for over forty medical problems, including

 

Allergies and Sinus Issues​

Gastrointestinal disorders​

Menstrual Pain​

Infertility​

Headaches and Migraines​

Arthritis

Acupuncture
Webster Technique/ Prenatal Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is essential for the pregnant mother.The mother's spine and pelvis undergoes many changes and adaptations to compensate for the growing baby. The goal of chiropractic care is to establish balance in the mother's pelvis.

 

Additionally, these compensations to her spine and pelvis during pregnancy are likely to cause an imbalance to her pelvic muscles and ligaments.  If the bones of the pelvis are out of alignment, this will directly affect the way the uterus will be supported and can limit the baby's movement.  This can prevent them from getting into the best position for birth, thus leading to longer, more painful labors.

 

The Webster Technique effectively treats these misalignments and imbalances in a safe and effective way.  Dr. Krista is certified by the ICPA to provide the Webster Technique to patients.
