Our Doctor utilizes several manual and light force techniques meant to optimize your body’s potential during chiropractic care. In most cases, a diversified hands-on technique is utilized in order to manipulate the spinal column and extremities. The overall goal is improved body mechanics and nervous system performance.
Diversified adjusting can be either forceful or light, depending on the patient and situation. The doctor may also utilize Activator/Arthrostim adjusting techniques to obtain the same results. These two techniques involved the use of light-force “punch” tools that apply a quick and precise impulse to the area of treatment. The Doctor may also utilize soft tissue techniques such as ART, Graston, Trigger Point, and Massage. Call our office in Alexandria to schedule your next chiropractic adjustment.
