What Is A Typical Visit to Our Office?
Every Visit -- 1, 2, 3
As Necessary – 4, 5, 6
1) Temperature Tracing
A machine that records the pattern of heat up the back of your neck. (This indicates muscle activity.)
2) Weight Balance
You stand with each foot on a different scale to see how evenly you stand and distribute your weight.
3) Activator technique
Your body is checked at each level (starting at the feet) and if necessary, you are adjusted with the activator instrument.
4) Head/Neck X-rays
Precise X-ray views to determine your unique spinal geometry and subluxations (at the top of your neck).
5) Toggle Adjustment
A side-posture (upper cervical) adjustment determined from your x-rays
6) Rest & Relaxation
A therapeutic rest after your upper cervical adjustment to let your body accept the correction.
Both techniques that we practice require special tables, which we have in our office. They are the Activator Table which electronically moves 90 degrees from a stand-up to a lying-down position. The other table is the Toggle Torque set-up we use for the upper cervical adjustments. Since it is a requirement to rest after a Blair Adjustment, we have a couple resting chairs in another room.
OUR X-RAY MACHINE
It is a pulsed flouroscopy camera which emits minimal radiation which is built into a room. For specifics, see the HEADACHE page.
We have a laser machine we use for pain control. And we also have accessories such as ice packs, aids for trigger point work, and tools for general mobilization.
