A unique approach to help stimulate healing and restore proper function
Upper Cervical Specific Adjustment
An Upper Cervical Specific adjustment is delivered only when nervous system dysfunction is present as indicated by thermography and other examinations. When clinically necessary, a specific adjustment is made to the misaligned segments. This is a quick, impulse-type thrust applied to the upper part of the neck. It is safe for patients of all ages.
After the adjustment, the patient undergoes post-adjustment neural recuperation and is placed in a recumbent position for approximately 20 minutes to allow the body to accommodate the adjustment and allow for a longer holding adjustment. Following the post-adjustment recuperation, the patient is scanned with the infrared thermography one last time to confirm that the correction has been made.
Full Spine and/or Extremity Adjustment
In some rare instances (less than 5%), patient evaluations indicate misalignments in their lower spine and/or extremity joints. In these rare cases, Dr. Peterson will address these issues utilizing his expertise in the traditional full spine and extremity techniques.
After a chiropractic adjustment has been made, the nervous systems reboots itself. During this critical period, patients are treated to a Human Touch Perfect Chair in zero-gravity position while enjoying a spa-like experience. The post-adjustment neural recuperation is necessary for increased neuroplasticity, or the ability to “re-wire” your brain in order to remove interference and restore proper function.
