We know that your first visit to see a Chiropractor might be a little scary. Our patients share with us their worries about neck adjustments and nightmares about neck cracking ninja moves. Low Force chiropractic is nothing of the sort – we’re not ninjas. We choose your care based on your comfort levels and body type, and we use a variety of low force methods to keep you both comfortable and safe.
We use a variety of techniques which we’ve covered in more detail below. Our expertise doesn’t just stop at spines either. Chiropractic can help heal other areas of your body including Feet, Ankles, Knees, Hips, Ribs, Jaw, Hands, Wrists, Elbows and Shoulders.
SOT (sacro-occipital technique)
Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) is a comprehensive, gentle and innovative technique of Chiropractic. It is so named because of the relationship between the Sacrum (base of the spine) and the Occiput (base of the skull).
The pelvis forms the foundational support of the human skeleton. It supports the upper body right up to the skull, and enables us to transfer our weight to our legs.
The nervous system controls our body, and functions optimally when our structures are balanced and our pelvis is stable.
Activator Instrument Adjusting
The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a gentle, low-force approach to chiropractic care. The technique has been used safely on patients of all ages since the late 1960s, bringing relief to people with a variety of health concerns.
Incorporating the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations, this unique system of administering spinal adjustments using research-based analysis and the Activator Adjusting Instrument can help restore spinal balance safely and comfortably.
Because of its effectiveness and gentle nature, the Activator Method has grown to become the world’s most widely-used instrument chiropractic technique.
Impulse Instrument Adjusting
The IMPULSE ADJUSTING INSTRUMENT® is the most technically advanced chiropractic adjusting instrument in the profession today.
The Impulse Adjusting Instrument is specifically tuned to apply precise force to the spinal bones thus allowing the creation of better joint motion with less force and simultaneously stimulate greater populations of nerve receptors for more effective adjustments and better results.
Soft Tissue Therapy
(STT) is the assessment treatment and management of soft tissue injury, pain and dysfunction primarily of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Soft tissue involvement is common in most spinal problems and will always be included in any chiropractic care regime when indicated.
