Doctors of chiropractic use more than 55 different procedures and methods. Practices you may experience include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments restore motion to joints, reducing pain and enabling the injured tissue to heal.
  • The Activator Technique involves use of a small device to apply pressure or gentle force to misaligned vertebrae.
  • Mysofacial treatments use massage or pressure to relieve pain from knotted muscle fibers called “trigger points.”
  • Flexion-Distraction treatments use a motorized table to gently stretch and relieve pressure on your spine while your DC focuses on problem areas.
  • Applied Kinesiology helps balance tense or loose muscles that pull a bone out of alignment. A combination of massage and manipulation is typical of this technique.
  • Logan Basic Technique uses sustained, gentle pressure at the sacrum, located at the base of the spine, to correct the spine.
  • Cox Flexion Distraction relieves lower back pain through stretching or traction of the spine.
