SERVICES & TECHNIQUES

Natural Pain Relief and Wellness

We use several highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. Our approach is based on our judgment and years of experience and training.

Gonstead

Named after its developer, Dr. Clarence Gonstead, this approach came from his engineering background. His “foundation principle” explains how a subluxation pattern in one area of the spine can produce compensatory changes in another. The Gonstead Technique is acknowledged as one of the safest systems for evaluating and caring for the spine.

Diversified

At Kennedy Chiropractic, we use an adjusting style called “Diversified.” First, an analysis of your spine is performed. This can initially involve a case history and X-ray pictures of your spine. Subsequent visits may include motion palpation, with the chiropractor feeling the spinal joints move as you turn and bend. Or, a leg check may be performed to uncover an imbalance in the neck or lower spine.

Thompson

The Thompson Technique, developed by Dr. J. Clay Thompson, has evolved into a system of analysis and adjusting the entire spine. The combination produces precise adjustments and high levels of patient comfort.

Activator Methods

We use one of the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world.

Cox Flexion-Distraction

This is a gentle, non-force adjusting approach. The thing that most patients notice first is our special table. The movements of this table help traction the spine, opening up compressed spinal discs and reducing pressure on facet joints of the spine.

Graston

The Graston Technique utilizes a set of stainless steel instruments that are drawn over your skin to reduce underlying scar tissue and fascial restrictions. Since many long-standing spinal problems produce inflammation, muscle changes, and fibrotic scar tissue, this approach helps create significant, long-term changes to soft tissues throughout your body.
