Chiropractors diagnose, treat, and prevent conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Using a non-surgical and non-pharmaceutical approach to wellness, chiropractors use manual manipulations to adjust spinal alignment, reduce pain, and enhance the body’s healing processes.
Your chiropractor at Arrowhead Physical Medicine can use a multitude of different techniques to relieve your pain and increase your mobility.
The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique® uses a handheld, spring-loaded instrument to deliver a gentle pulse to specific points along your spine. Your chiropractor uses this device as an alternative to manual spinal manipulation.
Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) emphasizes posture and spinal alignment to improve pain and function. CBP works to achieve correct posture of the spine, rather than focusing only on the affected segments of your back or neck.
Active Release Technique
Safe for pregnant women, children, and the elderly, the Active Release technique uses a thorough analysis of your spine to deliver precise spinal adjustments to the areas in need.
The Diversified technique aligns the spine and restores joint function. Your chiropractor delivers high velocity, low amplitude thrusts to restore spinal alignment.
With the Thompson technique, your chiropractor uses a special segmental drop table and applies force to manipulate your spine as segments are dropped away.
The Graston technique reverses the negative effects gravity has on the spine. Your doctor may recommend wearing a weighting system designed for the head, shoulders, and hips for up to 20 minutes daily.
Your specific condition, as well as the method of chiropractic care you receive, determine your overall treatment plan. If your chiropractor uses the Palmer method, they may focus on the top vertebrae and the negative effects it can cause in spinal alignment.
Your chiropractor may also use the sacro-occipital technique, which focuses on the relationship between the base of the spine, known as the sacrum, and the occiput at the back portion of the skull.
