Our Chiropractic Techniques

At The Chirohealth Clinic, 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 judgment and years of experience. The primary adjusting techniques we use include:


After identifying which spinal bones have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is administered to free up “stuck” joints.

Activator Methods®

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


Sacro Occipital Technique helps normalise the relationship between the pelvis and the head, using gravity to make the necessary correction.


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

Applied Kinesiology

Testing the strength of various muscles of your body help us find structural, chemical and mental problems revealed by a weak muscle.

Subluxation Station

This technology helps us evaluate your nervous system by measuring minute amounts of heat and electrical differences along your spine.

Dry Needling

The term dry needling is also used to differentiate the use of needling in a western physiological paradigm from the use of needling in an oriental paradigm which is referred to as acupuncture. Dry needling commonly involves the needling of myofascial trigger points using acupuncture needles to deactivate and help resolve them. If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let our chiropractors know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
