Our Chiropractic Techniques

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 clinical judgment and years of experience.

Treatments & Techniques Tailored to Your Needs

SERVICE OF EXCELLENCE is important to us and that is why at Messenger Chiropractic we fit the techniques to the patient, rather than the patient to the technique. We make it a point to treat our patients as we would like to be treated ourselves.
The primary adjusting techniques we use include:
