Our Chiropractic Techniques

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Chiropractic adjusting image

Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.

Diversified

After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints. read more»

Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust. read more»

Thompson

Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine. read more»

Impulse

This handheld instrument delivers a carefully measured and directed thrust that is many times faster than is possible by hand, so less force needed. read more»

Pierce

Instead of single thrusts, we’ll use a handheld instrument to deliver a series of rapid taps to just the right places along your spine. read more»

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

We use this special type of low level electrical current to stimulate supporting muscles of your spine, reducing inflammation and spasm. read more»

Ultrasound

This high-tech deep tissue “micro-massage” helps reduce swelling, increase blood flow, decrease pain, reduce joint stiffness and stimulate cell-repair. read more»

Trigger Point

By applying direct pressure or stretching of the affected muscle, we can reduce muscle spasms and flush out pooled blood and accumulated toxins. read more»

We also offer manual therapy and exercise programs.

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let Dr. Janet Harriger know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care. Call our Lancaster office today to find out what techniques and therapies might work for you!
