Our Chiropractic Techniques

“The power that made the body heals the body.” –BJ Palmer

We have studied and mastered a number of chiropractic techniques in order to meet your needs. With this being said, we often have patients who have experienced a particular type of adjustment in the past and as a result of our extensive education of chiropractic techniques, we are able to deliver what you are looking for and more. Therefore, please read the following in order to learn about the techniques which we use most often:

Toggle Recoil:

While you are in a totally relaxed state, usually lying on your side, a high-speed, low-force thrust is delivered to the upper bones of your spine and the hands are quickly withdrawn. This allows the body to use the energy as it sees fit to “reset” the spinal joints.


Pettibon chiropractic technique is part of something called reconstructive care, rather than just relief care. The technique uses a specific approach which allows the body to re-normalize and actually helps dejenerative spinal arthritis to reverse. It is one of the most powerful approaches available today for the quickest results. “With The Pettibon System, patients actively participate in their care both at the clinic and at home. When patients come to the clinic, they don’t sit passively waiting to see the doctor. They prepare for their examination by doing warm up exercises and stretching their muscles, ligaments and discs using the Wobble Chair and the Repetitive Cervical Traction.”

Cox Flexion-Distraction:

This is a gentle, non-force approach utilizing a special table. The movements of this table help traction the spine, opening up compressed spinal discs and reducing pressure on facet joints of the spine. This highly-effective technique offers a conservative resolution of low back and leg pain that often averts the need for surgery. We find it powerfully effective. Patients find it surprisingly gentle and ask to take the table home.


Pierce technique is one of the first in chiropractic to specifically address correction of the spinal curves. It is one of the most effective available for optimizing spinal function. “It is not a chiropractic technique like any others, but a systematic approach to correcting subluxations using the most advanced tools for spinal analysis and adjusting….. As the system evolved, it lead to more discoveries which advanced subluxation correction to a level which could produce consistent and predictable results paralleled by few! ”


This technique was developed by Dr. J. Clay Thompson and has completely evolved into one of the most utilized approaches because of its precision and results. With this being said, this technique is extremely unique because it requires the use of an adjusting table that actually moves with the adjustment, allowing for decompression of the disc and a natural healing approach for those who are suffering from pain. This is a specific chiropractic technique that uses mechanical and hands-on adjustment / adjustment which is primarily utilized to treat cervical and lumbar disc herniation, non-disc spinal disorders, and to increase mobility of spinal joints.

Logan Basic:

We use this technique because it focuses on the foundation of the spine and our non-force delivery style. With this technique, we will use our thumb to apply a light pressure to the muscles that attach to the sacrum. (Knowing exactly where to deliver this light contact requires years of training and experience.) We will hold this contact for about 10 minutes or however long is needed to relax the muscles. With repeated visits, as muscle spasms are reduced, the sacrum is able to assume a more normal position.

Like we mentioned above, if you have been exposed to a specific technique that you enjoy please make us aware so that we can deliver the type of results that you DESERVE!
