Our Techniques

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our judgment and years of experience.

The primary techniques we use include:

These are mechanical devices specifically designed to correct vertebral subluxations in your spine and freeing up soft tissue restrictions with safe, gentle, well-regulated forces. Many patients prefer these comfortable techniques to other more vigorous chiropractic techniques. Doctors and patients alike have been impressed with its incredible results.

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold LaserMany patients call this the “Magic Light” and can’t believe how fast this works. I call it my secret weapon in treating my patients. When the body has an injury, the cells are damaged and fail to function within normal parameters. Low level lasers penetrate deeply into the skin and work by restoring this abnormal cellular function. Treatments are as quick as a few seconds and all you will notice is the light shining on you, there is absolutely no pain felt with this therapy. Published in several medical journals, the cold laser has been shown to be very effective in reducing pain, controlling inflammation, speeds in tissue repair, improves circulation, increasing energy production, improving strength, increasing range of motion, and reducing recovering time from injuries. It is being used widely in professional sports including the NFL and by the USPS tour de France Team. More info at
