Gentle Chiropractic

There are many benefits of chiropractic, which is why we utilize it in our clinic to help patients. Chiropractic has routinely been shown in the medical research to reduce pain faster, cost less, and have longer lasting results compared to traditional conservative medical interventions. Chiropractic address the abnormal motion in the spinal and extremity joints of the body. When there is abnormal motion in the joints, this puts undue stress on the nerves, muscles, soft tissue structures, and discs. This leads to pain in the aforementioned tissues. Therefore, the abnormal motion (or biomechanics) have to be addressed to get long-term relief for the patient. Anytime we evaluate a patient, we are looking for the cause of the problem and not simply masking symptoms. Many times with pain syndromes, chiropractic is a key component of the overall treatment.

We utilize several gentle techniques of Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy (CMT) to address the malfunction in the spinal and extremity joints. Some patients do not want or like to be “popped”, so we also utilize a couple of techniques that are gentle and the patient does not hear any "popping". One technique is called the Thompson technique. This utilizes advanced tables which have "drop pieces". These particular tables use the momentum of gravity to restore proper motion to the spine. With this technique, patients do not hear a "pop" and state the treatment is more comfortable. We also utilize the Activator device. This is a device that delivers a small, very quick movement that restores motion into the joints, but does not create a "pop" noise and is very comfortable to the patient. Additionally, for those patients that prefer more of the traditional chiropractic treatment where a "pop" is heard, our providers can perform this type of CMT as well. Whatever your preference of technique, you can let your provider know, and we will deliver what you are most comfortable with.
