Techniques

Dr. Tracy Bray uses diversified and Gonstead techniques, as well as flexion/distraction procedures, varied soft tissue methods and acupuncture to facilitate your journey back to health. An activator is also used on patients that feel uncomfortable with manual adjusting.

 

Diversified Technique

The most commonly used manipulative technique by chiropractors. It is characterized by high speed low amplitude thrusts. Diversified is considered the most generic chiropractic manipulative technique and is distinguished from other techniques in that its objective is to restore proper movement and alignment of spine and joint dysfunction.

Gonstead Technique

An adjustment that is specific, precise and accurate, addressing only the problem areas. Great care is taken to make sure a correct position and precise thrust is provided to the area as accurately and painlessly as possible.

 

Flexion-distraction Technique

The most widely used approach to treating disc injuries involving back pain and accompanying leg pain. It involves the use of a specialized table that gently distracts or stretches the spine and allows the chiropractor to isolate the area of disc involvement while slightly flexing the spine in a pumping rhythm. There is no pain involved in the treatment.

Acupuncture

The procedure of inserting and manipulating filiform needles into various points on the body to relieve pain or for therapeutic purposes.

 

Activator Method Chiropractic Technique

A gentle, low-force approach to chiropractic care. The technique has been used safely on patients of all ages since the late 1960s, bringing relief to people with a variety of health concerns. Incorporating the latest advances in orthopaedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations, this unique system of administering spinal adjustments using research-based analysis and the Activator adjusting instrument can help restore spinal balance safely and comfortably.
