Atlas orthogonal is a very specialized adjustment that is used on the neck. The atlas is the very first cervical vertebrae, the one closest to the head. Your neck will be examined to determine if you're a good candidate for this type of adjustment. An x-ray will be taken of your neck and if it is decided that chiropractic adjustments are in order, Dr. Mindy will tailor a plan to meet your needs. This type of adjustment will not involve any cracking or twisting.

Thompson drop table technique
This technique of spinal adjustment uses a segmented precision adjusting table. Different segments can be dropped quickly depending on the area being adjusted. It is effective in treating particular areas of the spine. The patient lies on the table with their head supported and when the doctor applies the thrust to the spine, that segment of the table drops to augment the pressure applied.
The activator is an instrument that adjusts the spine in the place of the chiropractor's hands. It is a very gentle and precise way to make adjustments. The muscles are less likely to tense up because of the quickness of the movement, and it can be used on people who require a gentler adjustment.
The Webster technique is a specific type of adjustment for the low back. It helps to relieve misalignment in the lower back and pelvis and is encouraged during pregnancy. It is a gentle form of adjustment and there will be no twisting or popping involved. Pregnancy and a growing baby can throw the center of balance off and the body adjusts. This can result in misalignment of the spine and stress to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Getting future moms to relax and prepare for the birth is what this is all about, in addition to relieving any pain they are suffering.
The arthrostim is another adjustment instrument that your chiropractor uses to get your spine back into alignment. It's application feels similar to a massager, however its deeper benefits impact the fixations at the level of the joint and surrounding muscles. For those in extreme pain, it is the perfect way to get the adjustment you need without adding any pain.
