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.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:


After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific and gentle manual thrust is applied to free up fixated spinal joints.

Myofascial Release

We’ll find tender areas where muscles and connective tissue are producing pain and restricted movement and gently release it.

Full Spine Adjusting

A chiropractic adjustment is a non-invasive, hands on manipulation used to correct misalignments in the spine. Adjustments help to restore proper nervous system function, promoting the healing process. Dr. Janssen will examine your full spine and make adjustments as needed throughout, not just in the area related to the specific nature of your complaint. The goal is not just relief of current symptoms, but also better overall function.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy focuses on the soft tissue membranes that contain cerebrospinal fluid, to promote the proper function and flow of fluid throughout the system from the head to the base of the spine. Dr. Janssen will use very light pressure to discover and relieve restrictions in the system, leading to better health and function.
