Advanced Chiropractic Techniques


Activator Method


The Activator Method is an instrument based, low force adjusting technique that is extremely gentle and comfortable for the patient.  It does not involve any high velocity manual manipulation (no “popping” or “cracking” commonly associated with chiropractic care.)  Activator is a widely used, evidenced based technique that has some of the most current and cutting edge research advocating its efficacy and use.


Cox Flexion Distraction


Cox Flexion Distraction is a low force decompression technique ideal for treating herniated discs, degenerative discs, or spinal canal stenosis non-surgically.  This technique does not involve any high velocity adjusting and is again quite comfortable for the patient as well as highly effective.  Cox technique is also widely used and highly researched.


Active Release Technique


Active Release Technique is a soft tissue technique designed to treat a variety of overuse injuries such as tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and trigger points.  It involves the patient performing specific stretches and movements under the guided tension of an A.R.T. trained clinician.  Results are typically fast and permanent.


Low Level Laser Therapy


Multi Radiance Super Pulsed Laser (aka “cold laser”) is an FDA cleared modality designed for use in the treatment of a variety of musculoskeletal injuries and orthopedic surgery rehabilitation. The FDA states “…Lasers are indicated for the temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain, arthritis and muscle spasm, relieving stiffness, promoting relaxation of muscle tissue, and to temporarily increase local blood circulation where heat is indicated.


What you can expect


Referring physicians will be updated at regular intervals of their patients’ progress. A brief summary of the patients’ condition and current recommended treatment plan will be sent after the initial exam, after the first re-exam (typically 12 visits), and after discharge (typically 24 visits). At discharge, patients will be referred back to their primary care physician for a follow up assessment. Detailed records and daily chart notes can be sent upon request.
