Koren Specific Technique in Gig Harbor
With this breakthrough approach to patient care, the patient receives gentle, specific corrections to their spine and structural system. Most adjustments or corrections are done with the patient standing or sitting. The ArthroStim™ instrument is used in KST as an extension of the doctor’s hands, permitting better corrections or adjustments in a shorter time.
Upper Cervical Chiropractic Spinal Correction (N.U.C.C.A.)
Specializes in analyzing and correcting subluxations in the upper cervical spine, in particular the top vertebra (atlas). The sole purpose of this technique is to re-position the weight of the head over the center of the neck in order to remove spinal cord compression and restore body balance. This re-positioning reactivates the flow of health and healing messages from the brain to the affected part of the body so the body’s natural healing process can begin.
The Upper Cervical correction is a cornerstone of what we do at Fox Chiropractic. We take 3-D x-rays to determine the ideal line of correction. This allows us to use less force more accurately in adjustment to restore head and neck alignment. Our first objective is to restore the body’s balance and re-activate the self-healing process. We then monitor the patient during the period of stabilization and healing which lasts 6 to 8 weeks after the initial correction. Periodic future visits will ensure that body balance is maintained and brain messages can flow unrestricted to all parts of the body.
Applied Spinal Biomechanical Engineering (A.S.B.E.)
From x-rays, we determine a specific, customized, rehabilitative exercise routine for the patient to help return their full and symmetrical spinal motion.
