First the Evaluation

We use one of the most popular "low force" chiropractic techniques in the world. We begin by analyzing how well your spine moves. We test how well you turn and bend. While you're lying face down, we'll evaluate the length of your legs. This simple procedure can reveal significant differences in leg lengths. This time tested protocol tells us if subluxations exist and their location. It also helps us know when to adjust and when not to adjust.

The Adjusting Instrument

The Activator MethodsĀ® Adjusting Instrument is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust.

Because it's many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand, the body rarely tightens to resist, making adjustments comfortable and effective. It's also helpful for adjusting elbows, wrists, knees, and other joints of the body.

The Follow Up

After your adjustment, we retest to make sure changes have been produced. Testing afterwards helps us deliver high-quality care and high levels of practice member satisfaction.
