Chiropractic adjustments can help you safely eradicate your back pain. The unique aspect of adjusting is the direct stimulation of mechanoreceptors, using mechanical pressure. Patients often hear a small popping or cracking sound in their back with adjustments and this occurs when spinal joints are stretched out and the joint itself opens and the shifting air causes the cracking sound. After adjustments, our patients report a remarkable increase in their ability to move their lower back. Even though your muscles may remain sore or tight, the range of motion in your spine is vastly improved.
Advanced technology assists in delivering chiropractic adjustments. Instrument adjustments are high-tech. The adjustment is very precise and targeted and designed to specifically care for just the right areas. Patients have no discomfort during the adjustment and the results are amazing. The adjustment is delivered with precise force and speed and patients can be totally relaxed in not anticipating a physical manipulation.
Cells can metabolize faster with the use of laser therapy, causing energy levels to increase. The human body can naturally convert the laser light into biochemical energy to repair itself. Similarly, this energy can allow the body to perform at a higher level of efficiency. Many injuries and health problems can be successfully treated using laser therapy and these include sports-related injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic arthritis, tendonitis and fibromyalgia. The results of Dr. Shepherd’s laser therapy are evident in the satisfied reactions of patients. The treatment instantly relieves pain and enables patients to stop or significantly lower their reliance on medications.

The Diversified Technique targets both the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. It requires an in-depth analysis of our patients’ biomechanics and health history to produce optimal results. Diversified Technique selectively targets areas of biomechanical failure and low-force, high-speed thrusts are employed to bring back a normal range of motion and better overall function.
Gaitscan is effective in assessing the biomechanics of your body. It houses over 4,000 pressure sensors and scans at 300 Hz (scans per second) using a computerized plate. We have you traverse the sensor pad which stores information about how pressure is distributed in your gait. The scan makes a 3D view of your foot in motion and its many pressure points to determine the degree of aberration in your foot. Abnormal foot operation and alignment is linked to pain in the foot, knees and low-back. You can wear corrective devices in your shoes — orthotics — to mitigate functional shortcomings and thereby utilize your full range of motion. The welfare of your entire body rests on your feet. Because your frame does literally get its support from your feet, any flaw in their biomechanics will compromise the rest of your movement. Your posture is affected in this chain reaction.
