Doctors of Chiropractic – referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a drug-free approach to healthcare that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
We use the Activator Methods in our Chiropractic Care. Activator uses precision instrument adjusting of the spine – no forceful, cracking motions are used – to improve nervous system function and the body’s ability to heal. This results in elimination of pain and symptoms and a healthier, longer life.
Chiropractors focus on subluxation, a change in joint function or alignment that is a main cause of neck and back pain. All treatments are designed to meet the individual needs of each patient.
Along with specialized chiropractic treatment, Dr. Eickhoff will provide you with rehabilitation exercises, advice on posture and stress management, and nutritional advice. The most important aspect of chiropractic care is the comprehensive approach to treatment and management of a patient’s unique condition.
The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a chiropractic treatment method and device created by Arlan Fuhr as an alternative to manual manipulation of the spine or extremity joints. The device is categorized as a mechanical force manual assisted (MFMA) instrument which is generally regarded as a softer chiropractic treatment technique. The activator method is a far gentler chiropractic treatment with amazing results.
