Multiple Chiropractic Techniques Offered
Here at Central Health Chiropractic we offer a wide variety of techniques and treatments to ensure each patient receives the adjustments they are comfortable with. Primarily, Dr. Jake performs osseous manipulative techniques such as Diversified, Gonsted and Thompson techniques. These involve manually moving the bone often producing an audible release or crack within the joint complex. They are also known as high velocity, low amplitude manipulations. Said another way: quick, specific, and low force manipulations. If you are not comfortable with this style of adjustments, Dr. Jake is also comfortable with Activator technique. This involves using a spring loaded instrument to deliver a quick, gentle impulse at the desired restriction point that produces no release. In other words, activator technique will not crack your spine.
For more serious patients with severe injuries, we use Flexion Distraction Technique. This involves stabilizing the injured joint complex or disc with one hand while slowly flexing the legs forward using a specifically designed table. This forward flexion decompress the joint, the disc and unrestricted the segment without any aggressive twisting, pushing or force.
Dr Jake is also skilled at adjusting joints in the extremities as well.
