Our Chiropractic Techniques

Chiropractic adjusting image

Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.

We use safe, gentle, specific, effective Chiropractic Techniques to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. Our primary goal is to detect and remove nerve interference so your body will receive proper messages from the brain, and will function optimally. This in turn will optimize your body’s healing potential and health.

The technique used on each patient varies based on age, size, chiropractic findings, patient needs, as well as the doctors’ experience and expertise.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Cranial Release Technique

Cranial Release Technique (CRT) 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. Cranial Release Technique works to restore proper function to the nervous system and proper balance to body structure. Thus, it has positive effects on conditions ranging from aches and pains to overall health and wellness.
