Dr. Cristina is well-versed and trained in many different chiropractic techniques. After a thorough evaluation, she will determine what approach will work best for you.
Activator Methods Technique
Activator Methods® is one of the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world. Dr. Cristina has an “Advanced Proficiency” rating in this technique, awarded by Activator Methods International. The Activator Methods Adjusting Instrument is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust.
The Gonstead Method is based on proper biomechanical principles and the importance of a “level foundation” for the spine. Multiple methods of analysis are used including x-ray analysis, instrumentation, static palpation, motion palpation, and visualization to verify the precise location of the vertebral subluxation.
Life Full Spine
Life Full Spine Technique is used to restore proper movement and alignment of spine and correct joint dysfunction. It is the most commonly used technique in chiropractic today. It involves a short-lever, high-velocity movement with specific contact on the spine.
Thompson Terminal Point
Thompson Terminal Point Technique uses a precision adjusting table with a weighing mechanism. The dropping of the table allows for a lighter adjustment with no reduction in effectiveness.
The Webster Technique was developed for pregnant patients. It is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment used to optimize health benefits for both mother and baby. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. In so, doing neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.
