With this technique, a chiropractor manipulates special areas of the head to produce the desired effect.

A specialized table with moving parts gently rocks you in a way that slowly realigns the bones.
This method involves gently stretching and relaxing the spine until the spinal bones fall into place.
Here your chiropractor straps you to a table that gently moves upside-down, at an angle to help the bones readjust by gravity.
Active Release Technique
This involves massaging the various problem areas until they are gently pushed into place.
This ancient practice involves placing specialized suction cups on the body to target problem areas.
Post-Surgical and Pre-Surgical Rehab
These help to reduce recovery problems and lessen the amount of time needed in recovery.
