Our Techniques & Tools

This is a technique geared towards postural correction, which is so important in today’s world of computer workers. Posture (aka – your structure) determines function. The most common abnormal posture we correct is forward head carriage, which is commonly associated with dysfunctions like neck pain, headaches, pain or numbness into the arms and hands, as well as decreased lung capacity. Pettibon practitioners perform specific corrective adjustments to restore proper alignment. These techniques are used in conjunction with special exercises designed to rehabilitate the corresponding weak spinal muscles.
The Thompson technique requires a special table that has several movable “drop” pieces. It is a low force adjustment that makes it especially comfortable for patient’s who are in pain.
After identifying which vertebrae have lost their spinal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints. A very specific direction, speed, depth, and angle are used based on the body’s needs. Most of our patients prefer this type of adjusting, many noticing immediate benefits directly after the adjustment.

This revolutionary hand-held instrument applies a series of highly controlled “taps” to misaligned vertebral segments, avoiding the twisting, turning or “cracking” of spinal joints.
The Activator Method uses a small, hand-held instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to deliver a gentle impulse force to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted spinal vertebra or joint.
It is an alternative to the traditional manual form of adjustment. Next to the Diversified technique, the Activator Adjusting Instrument is reported to be the most common therapeutic intervention used by chiropractors. This instrument is especially beneficial for extremely sensitive patients, infants, and elderly patients.
Spinal Rehabilitation Exercises: The Science Makes the Difference
Our state-of-the-art rehabilitation program is designed to achieve very rapid changes; not only in your posture, but also in your overall health.
Dr. Burl Pettibon, the scientist behind these exercises, says it best: “Optimal health is a journey, Not a destination. Becoming healthy and staying healthy is a choice. This program is about choosing to be healthy and functioning at 100% for the rest of your life.”
These exercises only take a few minutes in our office and are proven to improve posture, reduce pain and stress, increase flexibility, as well as hydrate and re-nourish the inter-vertebral discs of the spine. Home care kits of the exercises taught in the office are available to patients, so they can get results as quickly as possible.
