Although chiropractors focus their adjustments on the life-sustaining spine, almost any joint in the body can become misaligned and cause a wide array of issues.  That's why we provide safe and gentle chiropractic adjustments to almost every joint in your body.  And we use several hands-on chiropractic techniques to effectively and comfortably coordinate your care.  The main techniques include:

Diversified : the classic chiropractic technique, taught in all chiropractic colleges, characterized by a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust used to restore proper movement and alignment to joints

​Gonstead : uses "short lever" adjustments to preserve the intervertebral disc, and the "Foundation Principle" to explain how a fixation in one area of the spine creates compensatory biomechanical changes in another

Thompson : minimizes the energy needed to adjust the spine and increases patient comfort by the use of a "Segmental Drop Table", and "Leg Length Analysis" to help determine areas of fixation

Toggle Recoil : lying on your side, a high-speed, low-force thrust is delivered to the upper neck to allow the body to "reset" the spinal joints

Extremity : special adjustments to realign and restore proper function of shoulders, ribs, elbows, wrists, hands, knees, ankles and feet - treating and preventing issues such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Frozen Shoulder and Plantar Fasciitis
