Adjustments

We have it all here! From the more manual form of adjusting to the gentler use of the activator or drop techniques we’re sure to find the perfect fit for your spine. Our doctors have been trained and specialize in multiple techniques so that you are as comfortable as possible on the table and when you leave.
Our doctors have all been trained and hold a current Webster Technique certification. Webster technique is a sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation and sacroiliac joint dysfunction. In so doing neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved. Our treatment is gentle, specific, and therefore non-invasive and safe for mom and baby!
Pediatric adjustments: Of course, our kiddos get adjusted! Instead of treating them like small adults, Dr. Alexia is trained and took extra continuing education courses in pediatric adjusting through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association or ICPA. Through this extensive training she learned the best practices for helping kiddos through all walks of life.
 
Flexion Distraction: This amazing technique has been shown to help with multiple lower back ailments and has even caused several of our patients to cancel their surgery appointments. It works by simply stretching each individual vertebra in multiple planes of movement which in turn increases blood flow to the area and pulls pressure off vital nerves that may be causing your pain.
 
Thompson Drop Table: This very specific technique is one of the most common forms of adjusting outside the manual bending and twisting that most people are familiar with. It sounds loud but it is very gentle and better yet, very gentle. Using gravity, a table is raised about an inch underneath the patient and then a light thrust is delivered to move the joint into its proper location.
 
Activator: Another popular technique especially for our kiddos, and those more sensitive to manual adjusting. This fancy tool is one of the most studied and proven techniques in the profession. Even if it feels like “nothing is happening” patients often report improvement with this form of adjusting.
 
Diversified: Is the most well known of all the techniques. Using this form of adjusting, patients may hear a “popping” noise and enjoy a more hands on experience.
 
Prenatal: Our practice specializes in treating women through pregnancy. We are often asked if it safe to start or continue chiropractic care once a woman is pregnant. Of course it is! And if you are not seeing a chiropractor you should start! Your body is about to go through some major changes both hormonal and structurally. Chiropractic care supports your body in handling all these changes.
 
We modify our technique to accommodate your growing baby bump as well as the lovely hormonal changes that allow for baby’s passage through the birth canal. Our doctors are Webster Certified. Which is a technique that is especially designed for the female pelvis. The Webster Technique is a sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation and sacroiliac joint dysfunction. In so doing neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved. Our treatment is gentle, specific, and therefore non-invasive and safe for mom and baby!

 
Balancing the pelvis and improving alignment and motion of the spinal joints is critical for everyone but specifically for the pregnant woman. The uterus is attached to the bones of the pelvis, specifically the sacrum. When the sacrum is misaligned, it can place uneven tension on the uterus and compromise the space available for baby to move and develop within the womb, and ultimately reach the ideal head down position for birth. Women that are under chiropractic care frequently report easier and shorter births.
