Chiropractic Adjusting Technique(s)

The purpose of the chiropractic adjustment is not necessarily about moving spinal bones but about gently introducing impressions that remove interference to you nervous system.  When your nervous system is restored through an adjustment the body is allowed to regenerate and revitalize itself, healing from within.  Regardless of technique used, the objective always remains th same.

Therefore, on any given office (according to the pattern of subluxation we see at that time, your age, your size and body type) our adjusting techniques may consist of manual (by hand) adjustments, seated adjustments, table assisted drop adjustments, "non-force" contacts or adjustments using a small mechanical precision instrument.

Furthermore, the doctor would not use the same amount of force to adjust a 110 lb. ballerina and a 220 lb. body builder.  Nor would the same force be applied to adjust a baby and an 80 year old grandmother.  In fact, adjustments can be so gentle that when given to a sleeping infant, the baby does not wake up.

Our goal is always patient comfort.  We openly request feedback from our patient to ensure their comfort.

For those chiropractic veterans interested in specific techniques practiced, they include but are not limited to: Diversified, Thompson Drop, SOT, Impulse IQ Adjusting Instrument, Extremities, CBP, and Upper Cervical Specific/Toggle.

Chiropractic care throughout my pregnancy was the best choice I ever made! I had a quick and easy delivery and feel so much better this time than with my first child.My one-week old was adjusted by Dr. Walsh and I noticed a difference in nursing him and his overall state of being that very afternoon.I recommend Dr. Walsh to every pregnant person I know! It's really does make a difference.
