I use and am trained in many techniques because I find it is my job to find and use the technique that is most suited to you and your bodies needs. Everyone is different, therefore I must use different strategies in helping restore proper function - this is the "Art of Chiropractic".
Thompson Terminal Point Technique
This adjustment first determines whether the subluxation is of the lower spine or cervical by performing a very accurate leg check. Using a Thompson Terminal point table, which is specifically designed for this technique, a special weighing mechanism in the table instantly weighs the patient and adds only enough tension to hold the patient in the "up" position before any thrust. This is a very accurate direct adjustment that does not inflame the soft tissue. This technique can be used by all patients including those who are pregnant.
Cranial Release Techniques
This is a natural, hands - on approach to releasing the body's inborn capacity to heal and regenerate itself. CRT can be applied in only minutes, yet it has profound effects on overall health and well - being. The entire cranium is "released" or restored to normal function with one process. This"release" of the bones of the skull initiates a release of all the tissues and structures associated with the cranium. This technique works especially well for those with TMJ problems, headaches, sinus problems and those who have difficulty "holding" their adjustments. I have also found it works great as a stress reliever. Go to www.cranialrelease.com for more info.
Arthro - Stim Instrument
This device allows me to maintain the effectiveness of your adjustment while reducing the amount of force applied. Individuals that may especially benefit from this are: infants and young children, individuals in acute pain, sensitive individuals, the elderly, and those who don't like to be "cracked".
This technique allows me to find and correct the subluxation. It allows me to restore proper movement into the spine. Sometimes with this technique you will hear a crack type noise, which is just gas being released from the joint.
