Our Chiropractic Techniques
We use a number of highly-effective chiropractic techniques to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference.
We care for each person uniquely and assess their independent needs. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and the age of the patient.
Torque Release Technique (TRT)
Torque Release uses a gentle touch and light thrusting by hand or small, hand-held instrument called an Integrator. This low-force adjusting method allows the nervous system to better integrate and understand the new corrective information and to process it throughout the spinal cord and brain.
The tool used with TRT is called the integrator. It is highly precise, specific, and gentle. The integrator was designed to reproduce what hands are doing in a chiropractic adjustment, but using much less force than possible by hand.
Dr. Lauren is certified in the Webster Technique. During pregnancy, a properly aligned spine and pelvis allows for an easier pregnancy, smoother labor and delivery and a quicker recovery. By ensuring that the pelvis and spine are in proper alignment and motion, chiropractic care helps to ensure that the developing baby has plenty of room to grow and develop.
The Webster Technique helps release stress on the pelvis by relaxing surrounding ligaments and reducing the sacral vertebral subluxation to help restore normal function. Sacral subluxations can cause tightening and twisting of pelvic muscles and ligaments that can constrain the uterus.
Thompson technique is a system of analysis and a way of adjusting the full spine. Early chiropractors noticed that subluxations would produce the appearance of a short, or contracted leg. Using a protocol of comparing leg lengths while the patient turned their head, help determine whether the subluxation was in the upper, middle or lower back.
Chiropractic care enables your body to function at its best before, during and after your pregnancy. And as mom functions better, so does her growing baby. We are Webster certified.
Many important growth milestones and changes occur in the first few years of life. Dr. Lauren is a trained pediatric chiropractor and knows how to assess if your child is functioning to their potential.
At Well Family Chiropractic, we see adults, children and families for a variety of concerns. Our goal is to educate, empower and adjust families toward a life of natural health through chiropractic.
