Our Chiropractic Techniques

The philosophy of Chiropractic is based on the knowledge that our bodies have an innate ability to heal, meaning our body was created with the ability and knowledge to repair and heal itself.  This ability can be decreased by a misalignment of bones in the spine that cause irritation to the nerves, often called Vertebral Subluxations. Chiropractic Adjustments gently move the bones of the spine in order to relieve pressure caused by these subluxations and to allow your body to regain it’s ability to heal itself.

In addition to Chiropractic Adjustments, we suggest utilizing a number of highly-effective approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics, reduce nervous system interference, and assist in whole body wellness. The approach we take at Kenmore Chiropractic is based on our clinical judgment and over twenty years of experience in order to help you achieve your personal goals.

The some of the techniques we use include:

Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.

Massage Therapy

Working hand in hand with chiropractic, therapeutic massage can improve muscle tone and help make lasting changes to the spine. Plus it feels great! read more»

Craniosacral Therapy

This form of treatment has a profoundly relaxing effect. It was developed by an Osteopath out of Michigan State to correct the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the cranium and down through the spinal cord.

The treatment is done on a massage table, on your back, fully clothed. It is noninvasive, with the pressure exerted being incredibly light (approx. 5 g, the weight of a nickel). Even though it is a form of manipulation, it is very, very gentle.

Craniosacral therapy is especially helpful for victims of car collisions who have been emotionally rattled. It has a grounding effect, and is found to create a profound sense of relaxation. It would probably be very useful for our post-traumatic stress veterans.
