Areas of Expertise

Chiropractic Family Practice specializes in a range of services tailored to address diverse health needs:

IMPULSE ADJUSTING/ACTIVATOR TECHNIQUE: Impulse Adjusting/Activator Technique is a gentle, low-force approach to chiropractic. Used safely on patients of all ages since the late 1960s, it brings relief for a variety of health problems – without drugs or surgery!

The Impulse Adjusting/Activator Technique incorporates the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic examinations along with a unique system of administering spinal adjustments. Using the analysis and the instrument, we can correct subluxations (spinal misalignment and nerve dysfunction) and restore spinal balance safely and comfortably

Because of its effectiveness and gentle nature, this method of adjusting has grown to become the world’s most widely used instrument adjusting technique.

Impulse Adjusting delivers a controlled, light fast thrust, without causing undue strain to the patients. The adjustments are so quick and controlled, your body’s muscles are less likely to resist, allowing for a more precise and exact adjustment. One of the unique features of our technique is that we can zero in on the exact area of the body that is causing your health problems.

This method is also one of the most scientifically researched techniques in chiropractic.

Patients all over the world are benefiting from the ease and precision of this unique method of chiropractic care. Discover how this can work for you!

WEBSTER TECHNIQUE/PREGNANCY CARE: Sacral subluxation causes the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments producing uterine constraint. It is these tense muscles and ligaments and their constraining effect on the uterus which prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the vertex position. The Webster Technique is defined as a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces interference to the nerve system, facilitates balance in the pelvic and abdominal muscles and ligaments, and which in turn reduces constraint to the woman’s uterus, allowing the baby to get into the best possible position for birth.

Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, discovered this technique as a safe means to restore proper pelvic balance and function for pregnant mothers. In expectant mothers presenting breech, there has been high reported success rate of the baby turning to the normal vertex position. Any position of the baby other than vertex may indicate the presence of sacral subluxation, and therefore result in intrauterine constraint.

It is strongly recommended by instructors of this technique that this specific analysis and adjustment of the sacrum be used throughout pregnancy, to detect imbalance and prevent intrauterine constraint. Because of the effect the chiropractic adjustment has on all body functions, pregnant mothers should have their spines checked regularly throughout pregnancy, allowing for safer, easier deliveries and optimized health benefits for both the mother and baby.

CHILDREN’S WELLNESS: Physical, Chemical, & Emotional Stress has been identified as the primary cause of spinal subluxation and nervous system interference. Thankfully, most children are spared many of the Emotional Stresses that adults face, however Physical and Chemical Stresses are abundant throughout childhood.

The birth process, which even in normal circumstances, has been shown to produce nearly 100 pounds of pressure on the baby’s neck, begins the stresses in our lives. Vacuum, forceps and Cesarian section dramatically INCREASE the traumatic forces! Then, in the first year of life, the National Safety Council tells us that nearly 50% of all children fall from a high place like a crib, bed, or changing table. Add sports, backpacks, and playground perils, and children from 0-17 suffer more spinal trauma than adults do in years 18-108! Sometimes the physical and mechanical stresses are, in fact, congenital, like in the cases of lip-tie/tongue-tie and scoliosis.

The chemical stresses of childhood are ever-present as well. From pollution, food additives and processed sugars to second-hand smoke, antibiotics and injections, our little ones are regularly bombarded with neurological, digestive and immune system toxins.

This physical and chemical nervous system assault is continuously met with a response from the body. Innate protective mechanisms kick in when the body is under stress. Muscles go into spasm around the base of the head and can restrict fluid drainage, digestion may slow down, breathing often gets restricted, the immune system can be overwhelmed, and the brain’s chemical balance is at risk of becoming altered.

Medical doctors and parents recognize and label these adaptive responses as ear infections, colic and constipation, reflex and IBS, asthma, allergies, and behavior challenges like ADD/ADHD and autism. Traditionally, the children are then medicated for their symptoms, sometimes by multiple providers in multiple specialties. This method of adding additional toxic chemicals may mitigate the symptoms, but often causes negative side effects.

Through clinical and scientific research, chiropractic has been shown to help all of these children, with all of these conditions. While the Chiropractic Adjustment is not a treatment for any of these conditions, per se, all of these children can achieve higher levels of function and wellness.

Our office has helped many children reduce or eliminate the need for ANY MEDICATION! They are DRUG-FREE and HEALTHIER THAN EVER! Ear infections are gone, colicky babies are sleeping better and having more regular bowel movements, children’s pediatricians are documenting increased breathing capacity, environmental allergens are less irritating, and those with learning and behavior challenges are becoming more functional.

An ounce of prevention: Nearly 1/2 of the children we serve are totally free of all symptoms or diseases. Their parents, though, have made a commitment to KEEP THEIR CHILDREN HEALTHY! Due to the overwhelming physical and chemical stresses, children’s nervous systems and spines need to be cared for and maintained throughout their entire life span.
