The Activator is the most widely used chiropractic instrument. Studies show improvement with the Activator Method. It also has been compared to other techniques and proven to be just as effective. This means that for many patients an Activator adjustment could very well lead to the same outcome as a manual adjustment. This offers chiropractors and patients an alternative to manual adjusting when it is preferred for clinical reasons.
Adjustments focus on stimulating your nervous system and helping you find relief and heal thoroughly.

Cold Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help accelerate your healing process. Laser treatment can be used on people suffering from acute and chronic conditions in order to eliminate pain and swelling, increase functionality, and reduce spasms.
Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints.
Custom foot orthotics are designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look similar to insoles, but are biomedical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot while you walk. We understand that everyone is different, which is why custom foot orthotics are made just for you.
The goal of the Diversified Technique is to reduce nerve interference. There are no special or unique procedures needed. Patients are assessed using these various mechanisms: history and basic examination (orthopedic and neurologic), palpation, x-ray, leg checks and reflex procedures as well as others.
The procedure involves analyzing the full spine and extremities. The majority of adjustments used in Diversified are manual adjustments, HVLA (high velocity, low amplitude), or long lever manipulations aimed at cavitating the joint and creating an audible release. This sound is known by patients as the “popping” or “cracking” sound associated with adjustments. Some chiropractors utilize specialized equipment such as drop tables or pelvic blocks.
Kinesiology Taping is a precise rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints. This technique allows the body’s normal range of motion as well as providing extending soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. Kinesio tape is latex-free and hypoallergenic which makes it “skin friendly” for patients with sensitive or fragile skin; such as, patients with diabetes, fibromyalgia or rheumatoid arthritis.

There are many types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities). People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons; for example, to reduce stress and anxiety, to relax muscles, to rehabilitate injuries, to reduce pain and to promote overall health and wellness.

Chiropractic care is not just for adults. In fact, more and more parents are seeing the many benefits of their children seeing a chiropractor every single day. Some of the benefits are improved sleep, improved behavior and attitude, and improved immune system function. Children encounter many physical stresses in their life that you may not realize. These stresses can cause your child’s spine to have issues in growth and development.
Here at Family Chiropractic, we offer a conservative approach to treating pregnant women. Our prenatal care is gentle and safe. We aim to alleviate the stress and strains of pregnancy while improving comfort for both the mother and baby.

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive mechanical procedure performed within our office to help alleviate back pain. It involves gently stretching the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs (the cushions that separate the vertebrae in the spine). By relieving this pressure, bulging discs can retract back into place which takes pressure off the nerves in the spine. By decompressing the spine, it permits water, oxygen and other fluids to work their way back into the discs allowing them to heal naturally. Spinal decompression is an excellent option for anyone with chronic back pain who wants to get back to living a pain-free life as quickly as possible.
One of the most important elements of chiropractic care is diagnostics. Chiropractic radiology is a tool utilized in care as a diagnostic practice to rule out pathology (such as possible tumor or fracture) and/or an additional aid to determine where to adjust the spine. Chiropractors rely on a variety of diagnostic techniques in order to fully understand what is occurring in the patient’s musculoskeletal system, and how a given treatment intervention could bring about positive results in each patient.
PEMF is a Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Frequency delivered through a coil that is placed on your body by a Certified Practitioner. The blood oxygenation increases and activates the lymphatic system and stimulates acupuncture points. This process reduces pain and inflammation and promotes healing. If we relieve the pain and swelling, the body can begin to heal naturally.
PEMF Can Relieve Pain From…
- Arthritis & Osteoporosis
- Sprains, Strains and Broken Bones
- Autoimmune Diseases
- Headaches & Migraines
- Aging & Stress
- Urinary Incontinence
- Accelerates Healing Time of Fractures & Wounds
- Reduces Inflammation
- Sleep Disturbances
How PEMF TherapyWorks
Many clinical trials have demonstrated that PEMF works by stimulating cells electrically, magnetically, chemically and physically.
How PEMF Therapy Affects The Body
- Increases cellular membrane permeability by mechanically contracting the cells and by stimulating the opening of ion channels through the cell membrane.
- Allows better circulation of oxygen and nutrients into the cells; and carbon dioxide and waste products out of the cells.
- Improves cell metabolism by stimulating the opening of ion channels in the cell membrane.
- Reduces swelling, relaxes muscles, decreases nerve irritability, stimulates tissue healing, strengthens bones and promotes fracture and ligament healing.
- Reduces pain and inflammation as well as it promotes nerve regeneration, muscle relaxation and immune system response.
- Helps the body’s natural process and promotes healing.
Cellular Effects of PEMF
- Improves intercellular fluid & blood flow
- Stimulates the production of ATP
- Increases cellular energy levels
- Increases cellular oxygen levels
- Promotes cellular healing
- Stimulates intercellular communication
- Stimulates electron transport in cells
Biological Effects of PEMF
- Significant pain relief
- Accelerates tissue repair
- Accelerates cell growth
- Promotes faster healing of injuries
- Reduces fibrous tissue formation
- Reduces swelling and inflammation
- Stimulates the release of endorphins
