Chiropractic Adjustment Techniques
- Chiropractic Adjustment
A chiropractic adjustment consists of movement or pressure applied to a joint or portion of the spine. This is usually completed by a licensed chiropractor using their hands or an approved instrument.
- Chiropractic Neck Adjustment
A chiropractic neck adjustment focuses on the joints along the base of the head, and the ones associated with the cervical spine. This can alleviate headaches, pain associated with stress, and issues related to poor posture.
- Chiropractic Adjustment Lower Back
One of the most common chiropractic techniques focuses on an adjustment of the lower back and associated joints. This is meant to alleviate back pain, hip pain, and related issues.
- ART (Active Release Technique)
ART focuses on soft tissue and the nerves that are irritated by repetitive movement or injuries. This manipulates the related tissue and works to release some of the tension to provide pain relief.
Flexion distraction uses special techniques to drop the pressure in the spine, alleviating a wide range of painful symptoms.
Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves to carry heat deep into muscles. This helps to loosen up stubborn obstructions, alleviate pain, and to improve mobility.
Biofreeze is a topical analgesic pain reliever that can work to relieve acute pain by itself, or to make spinal manipulation more comfortable during adjustments.
- Mechanical Traction
Mechanical traction uses a carefully constructed system to gently elongate the spine. This relieves pressure and helps to assist with spinal blockages and alignment issues.
- Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrical muscle simulation uses mild electrical signals to stimulate muscle contractions and to improve areas that suffer from spasms. This can be used to diagnose and to treat painful muscle issues.
Your chiropractor can suggest and help with stretches that increase flexibility, improve muscle tone, and help to take some of the pressure off surrounding joints.
A large part of chiropractic treatment involves preventative measures. Exercise can have a positive impact on spinal alignment and strengthen necessary muscle groups.

Understanding how to prevent further injury or discomfort is half the battle. Our professionals can identify the source of the problem, and help you plan on ways to avoid it.
Reduce swelling, eliminate pain, and increase downtime by combining ice therapy with your chiropractic treatment.
Applying heat to sore muscles will loosen them up, prevent additional injury, and help to stop the pain associated with acute injuries. Controlling the heat and pairing it with other necessary treatment is key.
- Cervical Traction
Cervical traction uses gravity or mechanical means to take some of the pressure off your cervical spine. This improves neck strain and helps to fight everything from headaches to stress related pain.
- Soft Tissue Adhesion Release w/Stainless Steel Tools
Soft tissue adhesion to surrounding joints or tendons can occur after an injury to an area of the body. Our chiropractor can help to alleviate the symptoms of this using specially designated stainless-steel tools.
- Percussion Massage
Rapid percussive movements can loosen muscles, have an impact on deep tissue, and help to prepare you for a chiropractic adjustment. This is particularly helpful for athletes and people who suffer from posture issues.
There are different types of chiropractic massage techniques that can be used to treat superficial and deep tissue muscle problems. Loosen up your sore muscles and take advantage of spinal alignment at the same time.
- Trigger Point Therapy
Focusing on trigger points can help to alleviate pain over wider regions of the body. Often associated with fibromyalgia, chiropractic trigger point treatment can help you live with less discomfort.
