Understanding Biomechanics

Adjusting man's backWith decades of experience, our chiropractors at Gillis Chiropractic Clinic understand the biomechanics of your body and how it should function. When you’re experiencing pain, discomfort or mobility issues, you want to feel better and get back to normal function. And we want to help you do just that.

We take the time to listen to you and then conduct a thorough exam (including X-rays on-site, if needed) to determine the underlying cause of your condition. We then develop a chiropractic treatment plan to correct the problem. We explain the reasons for your pain, as well as how our plan of care will help.

Our Techniques

Chiropractic care is the treatment of the spine and joints of the body to correct dysfunctions that affect the nervous system and cause pain or discomfort. Most people have heard of chiropractic care for the neck and back, but it is also highly effective in restoring other joints of the body to their optimal position and range of motion. We implement several adjusting techniques to achieve the best possible results for our patients, including:

  • Diversified — manual, hands-on adjustments
  • Thompson  — manual, hands-on adjustments utilizing specialized table 
  • Activator® Methods — instrument-assisted adjustments
  • Cox Flexion Distraction — decompression and stretching of the spine

Depending on your specific situation, your doctor may utilize one or more of these techniques throughout the course of your treatment.

Some people are nervous about manual adjustments, so we are happy to use the Activator® as an alternative. Because it provides a targeted, quick, low-force adjustment, the body rarely tightens up to resist. This instrument is also useful in adjusting the joints of the extremities.
