Our Approach to Chiropractic Care

Our goal at Thrive! Wellness center is to help you achieve a pain-free lifestyle in the most natural and effective way possible.

We will do a comprehensive evaluation and then recommend a combination of therapies that may include the following:


Along with a physical exam, we will evaluate x-rays and other relevant imaging to identify the source of your pain. We are one of only a few select practices using objective and computerized technologies to measure and compare results to AMA guidelines and track improvements over time. Objective testing provides evidence of your progress and reinforces the benefits you experience in your body.


Adjusting the spine relieves pressure, relaxes muscles, and reduces pain. Depending on your needs and preferences, we will manually adjust your spine using a hands-on technique or a gentle instrument. While some patients are comfortable with direct adjustments, others are relieved that we are able to adjust the spine without the need for popping or cracking. All of our techniques are specific, safe, and customized to your body’s needs.


If you have a disc herniation or compression injury, gentle traction can relieve the pressure on your neck or spine. Sometimes called “floating traction,” ProTecSpine is a spinal traction device that relies on gravity to provide traction in a vertical position. When seated in the ProTecSpine, you’ll use a remote control to lower the seat and stretch only as far as comfortable. This off-loads the pressure on your spine and works synergistically with other chiropractic treatments to get you natural and lasting relief.


Deep-Tissue Laser is a state-of-the-art treatment that uses near-infrared light to penetrate into deep tissue structures, improving circulation and oxygenation. As the light is absorbed by your tissues, it increases the production of ATP (a form of cellular energy), which helps the tissue heal and repair. You’ll feel a sensation of warm sunlight. Our Class 4 Deep-Tissue Laser Device is clinically proven to reduce inflammation and relieve pain.

Chiropractic Manipulation Techniques

If you are not familiar with the practice of spinal manipulation, it is a form of treatment performed by
chiropractors and osteopaths. Chiropractic doctors use terms like "spinal adjustment" or "spinal
manipulation" to describe this procedure.

Spinal manipulation

Chiropractic spinal manipulation is a proven way to relieve pain and improve health. This technique
is rooted in ancient medicine. It was developed by Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, who devised
methods for easing prominent vertebrae. The practice of spinal manipulation is still used today by
chiropractors and osteopaths to relieve musculoskeletal pain. During a spinal manipulation, a
chiropractor gently moves the spine in a particular direction while applying pressure to the vertebrae.
Although chiropractic spinal manipulation can effectively relieve back pain, it should be used
cautiously in some cases. Patients with osteoporosis should not receive aggressive chiropractic
spinal manipulation. The risks associated with this treatment could include muscle spasms, muscle
strains, nerve damage, fractures. For these reasons, chiropractors should perform a thorough
medical history and physical examination before providing an adjustment.
Several studies have examined the effects of spinal manipulation on pain and health in various
populations. A number of patients with herniated lumbar disks have responded favorably to spinal
manipulative therapy. However, these researchers have not accounted for patients with chronic neck
pain. The practice of spinal manipulation has many benefits, including improving balance, body
alignment, and gait. It also helps improve nerve impulse transmission and enhances nerve system

The Minimum Energy Hypothesis is a theory that predicts the ideal configuration of the spine. This
theory integrates sensory tonus and fixation models to predict the optimal position. The theory
predicts that the spine's minimum internal energy is reached when it achieves mechanical


The Cox-Flexion chiropractic technique is a gentle spinal adjusting technique. The technique has
many benefits, including noninvasive spinal decompression and pain relief. The technique is used to
treat back pain caused by spinal stenosis and disc pathology. It is an excellent alternative to more
invasive surgeries.

The Cox-Flexion Technique is a type of spinal manipulation that helps realign vertebrae in the
lumbar spine. It involves gentle pressure to realign the spine and restore range-of-motion to the
joints and muscles. It can reduce back pain and improve posture. The technique is gentle and
noninvasive, but not all chiropractors perform it.

This hands-on spinal manipulation method combines the principles of osteopathic medicine and
chiropractic care. Cox Technique was developed nearly 45 years ago by Dr. James M. Cox, a
chiropractor. The technique works by realigning the spine, thereby stopping pain. The technique is
based on the manual of osteopathic technique written by John McManis, DO in the early 1900s. Dr.
Cox has refined his technique over the years, participating in clinical research and publishing several
well-received articles and textbook chapters.

The Cox technique is effective for treating lumbar disc injury and chronic pain. The technique is a
nonsurgical, doctor-controlled technique that helps separate troubled discs and promote the flow of
healing nutrients and blood to the affected area. This method is also effective in treating post-
surgical cases of spine injuries and degenerative disc disease.
Flexion-Distraction chiropractic manipulation helps reduce the pain associated with osteoarthritis. In
addition to relieving pain, flexion-distraction chiropractic treatment can also help improve the spine's
range of movement.

Diversified technique

The Diversified technique is one of the most common types of chiropractic manipulation, and is
performed using manual adjustments. This method of adjustment is designed to restore nervous
system function and communication, while relieving pain and improving joint mobility. In addition, this
technique can be gentle and is especially effective for children. Often, patients will need a number of
treatments, but many will notice improvement after just a few. They may also experience less
inflammation in the body, and improved immune function.

Diversified technique is the most common type of chiropractic adjustment, but it is not the only type.
Several other techniques can also be used, including the Gonstead Technique and the Thompson
Technique. Both use drop pieces to distract the joint during the adjustment, which minimizes the
force needed to perform it.

Diversified technique has proven to be an effective treatment for a wide range of musculoskeletal
disorders. Studies have shown that it can reduce pain and dependence on medication. It was
originally used in cases of subluxation, where the bony surfaces are not facing each other. More
advanced versions of Diversified technique have been developed to address specific injuries.
Diversified technique is one of the most effective forms of chiropractic manipulation. It uses very low
amounts of force and low amplitude thrusts to restore joint function. It is also a safe method to
relieve pain. This technique also involves manual pressure on the joints, which is associated with a
popping noise.

Activator Method

The Activator Method is a chiropractic technique and device created by Arlan Fuhr. It is known for its
effectiveness and patient-friendliness. It uses a hand-held device that helps the chiropractor
manipulate joints.

Traditional spinal manipulation uses the chiropractor's hands to quickly realign a joint. The Activator
technique adjusts a much smaller area, which means it can be less physically and mentally stressful.
It also avoids the popping sensation associated with traditional chiropractic adjustment methods.
The Activator method is gentle on joints and spines, and can be used safely on pregnant women and
those with osteoporosis or arthritis. The method can also help patients with stiff joints and
neurological conditions. Children can also benefit from the technique. The technique is safe for most
people, and is also considered a good choice for patients with scoliosis and acute disc herniation.
The Activator technique can help reduce inflammation and speed recovery time.
The Activator method uses hand-held instruments that mimic the effects of a manual spinal
adjustment. The device also reduces the amount of muscle tension during the procedure. It's also
quicker than a manual realignment, and allows the chiropractor to treat a specific area quickly and

Discseel (r) Procedure

The Discseel (r) Chiropractic manipulation procedure is a nonsurgical procedure that treats discs in
the spine. Unlike other manipulation procedures, this one is a noninvasive, pain-free procedure that
can help alleviate pain. In fact, over 70% of patients report significant improvements in pain,
function, and quality of life. Most of these patients have tried almost every other treatment, including
surgeries and medications.

The Discseel Procedure uses the body's natural healing processes to repair damaged discs.
Because spinal discs are not capable of healing themselves, this procedure helps patients regain
their active lifestyles. Patients can continue to participate in their favorite sports without fear of
causing further damage.

This nonsurgical procedure uses fibrin, a natural biologic created from human blood. Like
corticosteroid injections, fibrin is a powerful healing agent. It can effectively repair tears in
compromised discs and restore disc height. In contrast, spinal fusions and discectomies fail to
achieve these results.

Although spinal fusion has become a common treatment method for disc pain, many patients have
not found permanent relief after surgery. For example, about 40% of spinal fusion patients
experience chronic back pain that does not improve with time. Furthermore, more than half of these
patients require strong pain medications to control their pain. However, the Discseel (r) Procedure is
a minimally invasive, outpatient injection procedure that has been shown to be more effective at
alleviating back pain than spinal fusion.

In order to effectively address spinal pain, chiropractors must follow a patient-specific chiropractic
care regimen. These care regimens should be based on evidence-based clinical practice and be
applied appropriately to each patient. They should also consider the patient's specific clinical needs
and preferences to determine the best treatment.


How Long Does Chiropractic Treatment Take?

Chiropractors treat a variety of injuries, including bone injuries. The healing time for bone injuries
takes approximately five to six weeks, while the healing time for ligaments and tendons is
approximately six to eight weeks. Disc injuries, on the other hand, can take two to three months to
heal completely. Depending on the severity of the injury, your chiropractor may recommend a course
of therapy that requires multiple visits before full recovery.

10 minutes

A typical chiropractic treatment lasts around 10 minutes. Ideally, a chiropractor will use a multimodal
approach to treat patients. This is in line with manual therapy literature and chiropractic education. In
addition, a chiropractor who only uses a single technique is unlikely to be as effective at treating
back pain as those who combine several techniques.

Before a chiropractor can diagnose your problem, they will ask you a few questions to determine the
exact cause of your pain. You'll have to discuss your medical history, past injuries, and any other
treatments you've had. Chiropractors may also perform tests to evaluate the affected area, including
x-rays. In addition, they may perform massages or use heat or e-stim. If you are worried about the
cost, make sure the chiropractor itemizes each service.

After your initial consultation, you'll be scheduled for a follow-up visit to review your findings. You
may need to see a chiropractor regularly for optimal results. The treatment may last for several
weeks, and the number of visits per week should gradually taper down as your body heals.
While chiropractic treatment is not the complete solution for all health problems, it is an excellent
option for relief of temporary pain. A chiropractor will use a thorough diagnosis to determine the
exact cause of your pain, and he or she will then design a treatment plan based on the diagnosis.
Moreover, chiropractic care empowers you to manage your own health.

Chiropractic care is a popular form of alternative medicine that relies on manual adjustments to the
body's joints. The adjustments are made by a chiropractor using their hands, and you'll experience a
"pop" when the joints are adjusted. In addition to relieving lower back pain, these treatments relieve
stress, which can lead to other problems, such as gastrointestinal problems.

Chiropractic adjustment

The amount of time it takes to get a chiropractic adjustment depends on the severity of your
condition. Some injuries, such as to the vertebral disc, may require several adjustments over a
period of months, while others may only require less treatment. This depends on the severity of your
injury and the strength of your muscles and ligaments.

The recovery time from a chiropractic adjustment depends on the type of chiropractic treatment and
the amount of time it takes for your body to adapt. Some people experience pain relief immediately
after the first session, while others feel relief after two to three sessions. The age of the patient also
affects how quickly they heal from a chiropractic treatment. Younger, healthy individuals in their 20s
and 30s typically respond quickly to chiropractic care. Older patients, on the other hand, tend to take
a little longer.

Chiropractic adjustments are used to help relieve chronic pain. The chiropractor will determine the
number of adjustments necessary to heal your condition, and give you an estimated time frame for
each adjustment. This timeframe may change as your health improves.

Most people who receive chiropractic care require multiple sessions, because their joints and spines
are significantly out of alignment. The first few sessions are used to restore the spine to a more
normal state. After that, regular adjustments are recommended to avoid more serious injuries and
certain types of arthritis. They will also help prevent future injuries from occurring.

Depending on the condition, a chiropractic adjustment can relieve pain and inflammation in the back,
neck, and joints. By correcting the spine alignment, chiropractic treatments can help cure even the
most chronic conditions. The results of a chiropractic adjustment can last anywhere from one to four
