Our Techniques

Our chiropractic 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.

Diversified Technique, championed by Dr. Joseph Janse, has evolved into a system of analysis and means of adjusting the spinal cord and extremities. The combination produces precise adjustments.

Activator Technique, developed by Dr. Wallace Lee and Dr. Arlan Fuhr this technique makes use of specialized hand held device  to perform the adjustment. The Activator has specific patterns of adjustments for each area of the spine. These adjustments are very fast, very low force and are designed to move a specific spinal segment.

Sacro Occipital Technique, developed by Dr. Major DeJarnette this technique makes use of angled wedge blocks to perform the adjustments. SOT has specific patterns of placement for each area of the spine. These adjustments are very very low force and are designed to move general spinal regions.

 

Trigger Point
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.

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.

 

Additional therapies
Our office employs many physiotherapy modalities, including ultrasound, moist hot packs, electrical muscle stimulation, diathermy, mechanical massage and flexion distraction therapy to complement our other techniques.
