Our Chiropractic Techniques

At Family Chiropractic Center, we use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:


This full spine approach relies on X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results.


After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints.

We’re experts on a wide range of effective adjusting approaches taught at the Palmer College of Chiropractic, the birthplace of chiropractic.

Your biggest enemy is gravity. We’ll evaluate how your spine has adapted and take pictures throughout your care to document your progress.

Applying a light contact to the sacrum, relaxes the muscles and allows the “foundation of your spine” to support your body properly.

We use a special table so we can traction your spine, opening up the spacing between spinal vertebrae and relieving pressure to spinal.

While lying on your side, we’ll use our hands to deliver a quick contact to the upper bones of your spine. Your body does the rest.
