Diversified technique is the most common technique used by chiropractors to adjust the joints of the spine and extremities. It is also the only technique taught in Canadian chiropractic programs. Diversified adjustments are applied by hand, with a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust aimed at resoring joint function and reducing pain.
Chiropractic adjustment techniques have been well researched and are an effective option in the treament of back and neck pain.

A modern approach to acupuncture aimed at correction of neuro-anatomical dysfunction related to your symptoms and clinical presentation. Contemporary acupuncture involves placing fine solid steel needles into various points in the body which are left there for a short time (10-20 min). Often, one or more needles are stimulated with a small electrical device which aids in treatment.
Contemporary acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment option for neurological and muscular disorders including headaches, neck and back pain, sports injuries, sciatica, osteoarthritis, neuritis and facial pain.
I emphasize active home exercise along with passive treatment in the office. Introducing exercises and stretching early can help you manage your symptoms, and decrease the chances of pain becoming chronic.
During a functional /movement assessment I will lead you through certain movements noting how well you can perform the movement, and any pain or tightness you feel. These movements are followed up by corrective maneuvers aimed at improving how you move, or allowing you to move without pain or tightness. The results of this type of assessment guide us in developing a home exercise and rehabilitation program.
