myPictures/drpAdjustment.jpgThe most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as spinal manipulation also called "chiropractic adjustment”.  The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile - or restricted in their movement - as a result of a tissue injury. myPictures/drpAdjustment.jpg

In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. When other medical conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition. We assess patients through clinical examination, diagnostic imaging and other diagnostic interventions to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate or when it is not appropriate.  We will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient's condition, or the condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of the health care field.

Pro-Adjuster

The Pro-Adjuster is used only by qualified chiropractors for spinal manipulation.  It is a very sensitive diagnostic and adjustment tool which provides precise evaluation and treatment.  The treatment is painless. 

The Pro-Adjuster does the same as manual palpitation but measures precise levels of fixation, rigidity or fluidity of the vertebrae.   When the doctor applies very slight pressure of the piezoelectric head at each vertebral level of the spine, a signal sent to vertebrae to check motion is reflected back to the head.  This reflective The Pro-Adjusterforce is the measurement of the resistance of the vertebrae in your spine.  The Pro-Adjuster computer uses this number to determine number of precise and controlled taps needed to lessen the vertebral rigidity.  The doctor applies the treatment using the percussive instrument with a very light and steady pressure.  When the computer registers that the determined number of consecutive equal taps has been reached and that there is less vertebral rigidity, percussion stops and the treatment is complete.

The method of spinal manipulation is the patient's choice.  Both methods work toward the same goal of good health.  Those who have never experienced chiropractic care may be fearful because of what they read or heard.  The Pro-Adjuster will make these fears disappear.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression therapy may be the answer for patients with chronic back pain.  In our office, we use the Triton DTS® Traction System.   The DTS gently pulls on the patient's spine, relaxing the muscles and allowing the discs, which are rubbing on each other, to separate and relax. It uses one third of the force of the old treatments, and is 86% effective in relieving back pain. It creates a negative pressure inside thmyPictures/relaxedDisc.jpge disc, which draws in any bulging or herniated disc material, like suction. This allows the back to become healthy again. We use spinal decompression therapy separately from chiropractic treatments to treat chronic lower back pain and neck pain.  We also may use it as an adjunct to chiropractic.
