Gonstead Technique

This technique is a hands-on method and is most used to adjust the spine, lower back, or pelvis. The patient will lie on their side while Dr. Clint searches the spine for areas of misalignment. Manually adjusting the spine and realigning joints can assist in reducing pain, increasing mobility, and providing the patient with a better quality of life. 

Activator Technique

This technique uses a handheld mechanical instrument, called an Activator, to deliver gentle pulses into the vertebrae of the spine or extremities. Patients can expect to feel a light thumping sensation. This low-force chiropractic method is used to treat a variety of ailments, from headaches to back pain.

Drop Table Technique

Many patients associate going to the chiropractor with a chiropractic table. The formal name is the Thompson Drop Table. It features a segmented design that "drops" with the part of the body that is being treated. This sudden drop asissts with the manipulation of that area without causing discomfort.

Diversified Technique

One of the most common methods used by chiropractors, the Diversified technique is the classic method of adjustment. Patients can sit or stand while your chiropractor moves and positions your joints. A quick thrust and shift will be delivered to that portion of the body to restore the normal placement and range of motion.
