Techniques

At Living Roots Chiropractic we use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

Manual Chiropractic Techniques

Diversified

One of the most commonly used chiropractic manual techniques is the Diversified technique. It is characterized as a high velocity, low amplitude thrust that has the objective to restore proper movement, alignment of the spine and joint dysfunction.  

Pierce

The Pierce Results System is also a manual chiropractic technique utilized in our office. This is a specific, non-rotational type of adjustments. The adjustments are used to help restore proper spinal curves in the body and eliminate any motion restrictions.

Webster

The Webster technique is a form of analysis and adjustment specifically for pregnant patients in our office.  This technique helps restore proper pelvic functioning, decrease ligament strain and improve pregnancy and delivery outcomes.

Instrument Techniques

Torque Release Technique (TRT)

TRT is the most up-to-date chiropractic technique available.  It has been designed as part of scientific research into the health benefits of chiropractic.  As such it is a mixture of the “best of the best” systems of chiropractic assessment and treatment. Research published in one of the most respected psychiatry journals shows dramatically increased success in reducing anxiety and depression levels, and improved measurements of wellbeing.

Here at Living Roots, we will be checking your spine for areas where the nervous system is being damaged by subluxations and will deliver an adjustment using the Integrator instrument.  This sounds like a staple gun and will feel like a quick impulse into the muscles of your spine. This reproduces what the hands were intended to do with much more specificity and less force than ever possible by hand.  The advantage of the Integrator is that it can deliver a specific frequency into the nerve endings of the spinal column, exactly where nerve function has become irritated.
