The Activator Method
Evolved from 35 years of empirical study and 15 years of clinical research, the Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique (AMCT) uses the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations to seek joint dysfunction in the spinal column and extremities for improved patient care. AMCT uses the Activator Adjusting Instrument to give consistent low-force, high-speed chiropractic adjustments. Over 35,000 doctors have been trained in AMCT and 2,100 doctors are Proficiency Rated, making AMCT the most widely used technique worldwide; a testament to low force patient satisfaction.

Super Pulsed MR 4 Laser Therapy
We employ the QR4 Low Level Laser, a type of phototherapy, which is a technology we use to support the healing process and provide relief from injuries. We’re currently using the newly released third generation laser. It is non-invasive procedure (non-surgical and drugless) that has virtually no concern for side effects. Laser therapy has been successful in treating soft tissue injuries including whiplash, sprain-strain and repetitive motion. Research shows that cold laser therapy accelerates the healing process by up to 40%.
Our laser is an FDA approved device that is supported by research for treatment of both acute and chronic conditions. Biological effects include cellular growth, faster wound healing, increased metabolism, reduced scar tissue formation, anti-inflammatory, increased vascular activity and stimulated nerve function. In fact, there are several thousand articles documenting the use of laser therapy in clinical settings.
Mechanical Traction on a Spinalator
The Spinalator offers patients a relaxing therapy often referred to as intersegmental traction.
- Improved mobility
- Improved metabolism
- Increased blood circulation
- Reduced fixation of spinal segments
- Relief of muscle contractions and tense ligaments
- Strengthening of ligaments
- Stimulation of specific nerve centers
Inversion Table Therapy
Adjustable degrees of inversion are used in order to help create spacing in-between the vertebrae. This separation allows for blood to flow to areas that would otherwise be too compressed to reach due to the constant compression effect that gravity has on our spine, back and bodies. This fresh blood circulation then helps to assist in the reduction of inflammation throughout the spinal cord and back. Leading to a reduction of pain, amongst many other benefits not only to your back area, but to your overall health as well. The time period for this is normally seven minutes.
