Chiropractic Care

Dr. Katie adjusting little girlChiropractic care focuses on removing the spinal misalignments (subluxations) within the body to take the pressure off the nerves so the body can function at its optimal. While pain relief is one of the most recognized benefits of chiropractic care, there are many more: improved energy, better sleep, improved digestion, a stronger immune system and a better quality of life.

Dr. Katie’s Techniques

Using adjustments that are gentle and personalized, never cookie-cutter, Dr. Katie can remove those subluxations so the benefits of chiropractic care can be maintained. She uses the following techniques:

  • Activator Methods® — This technique uses a handheld instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust.
  • Diversified — After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints.
  • Gonstead — This full spine approach uses X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results.
  • Logan —With this technique, light, sustained force on the sacrum at the base of the spine is applied.
  • Thompson Drop —A special table is used with this technique to reduce the amount of energy required to adjust your spine.
  • Webster— This technique is used to take the pressure off the sacral nerves in relation to the pregnant mom’s uterus so her baby is able to find a comfortable position and Mom can feel more comfortable.

The New Patient Journey

“When I first see someone in pain, I will see them more often in the beginning because we want to make sure they’re getting out of pain and their body learns to hold that new adjustment,” says Dr. Katie. As their care plan progresses and symptoms decrease then she will space out the adjustments accordingly until they get to that corrective or maintenance care.

Helping Practice Members Feel Comfortable

If you’re new to chiropractic, you may wonder what the adjustment process will be like. Rest assured that Dr. Katie will always explain everything that she is doing, including the noises you may hear, and will ask if you have any questions before she adjusts you. She will ask you how you are doing during the adjustment and proceed if you agree.
