The most common procedure in chiropractic is the diversified technique of spinal adjustment. This usually involves rapid pulling or pushing on the spine in order to reintroduce more normal motion or position. Often a “popping” or “cracking” sound will be heard during a chiropractic adjustment. This sound results from air bubbles being pulled out of the joint fluid. It is the exact same phenomena that happens in your mouth when you click your tongue.
Using adjustments to restore balance to the lower body in the hips lower back and neck. Often the patient is adjusted in a seated position.
In this technique, a special force limiting adjusting table is used to enable the chiropractor to use less force in correcting the spine and be highly accurate.
An activator is a low force adjusting instrument that produces a physical impulse by which the doctor can get the desired movement back into the joint.
The following therapies are designed to help chiropractic patients maintain spinal alignment, become stronger, and heal faster.
Trigger Point Therapy

Active Miofacial Release
A form of soft tissue therapy that works by relaxing contracted muscles, increasing circulation and stimulating the stretch reflex of muscles and connective tissue. Recalibrating the muscle tension is achieved by coupling body movement with specific massage techniques.
Massage or 'body work' includes rubbing, pushing, kneading, and rolling soft tissue components such as muscles, tendons, ligaments and skin.These techniques improve blood flow, break down fibrotic adhesions, and enhance more balanced muscle tone and soft tissue flexibility.
Near Infrared Therapy
Near Infrared Light can penetrate soft tissue such as the skin and muscles in order to increase the body's ability to bring oxygen rich blood to areas that need healing. It also facilitates the movement of toxins out of damaged areas through the lymphatic system. It has been shown to excite energy production in cells.
