Chiropractic Care

With chiropractic care, we address the function of the nervous system. For children with brain traumas or brain dysregulation chiropractic checks are even more crucial. It’s important to establish proper brain-body communication.

Dr. Lisa checks for misalignments along the spine in the vertebrae. She also does a lot of cranial work as well.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Depending on what you come in for, our objective is to address your symptoms and help you function better. Adults under care can experience a greater range of motion, better sleep, restored function and more. Kids who receive chiropractic often see improvements in their physical functioning including walking, crawling, and coordination. Chiropractic also can help with tongue-tie which inhibits a baby’s ability to latch during breastfeeding.

A Drug-Free Approach

We see many children who come in with ADD/ADHD or asthma. The medical approach to these conditions involves medication, which has many associated side effects. After receiving chiropractic care, many of our young patients are able to experience improvement in their health without the use of drugs.

Tailored Techniques for the Entire Family

We offer an array of techniques that are custom-tailored to each patient. Dr. Lisa uses the following:

  • Activator Methods® —This instrument-assisted technique applies a light force that is ideal for young children and older adults.
  • Cranial — With this type of adjustment, skull bones can be freed up, and tension in the skull or face can be alleviated.
  • Diversified —This is a manual technique that uses a specific thrust to free up stuck joints.
  • Drop Table — With this technique a particular table is used to reduce the amount of energy required to adjust the spine.
  • Impulse® — This handheld instrument delivers a measured & directed, but low force, thrust that is considerably faster than is possible by hand.
  • Logan Basic — With this technique, the muscles that control balance in the spine are addressed to release tension.

Dr. Lisa will take the first few adjustment sessions to determine what type of technique is going to work best with your body and how your body wants to move.
