Amino Neuro Frequency Therapy (ANF) is a revolutionary holistic approach to pain, inflammation and dis-ease in the body following nerve paths and systems to find the root cause of a problem and activate the body’s defense system to help with healing.
How does ANF Therapy work?
It uses a combination of frequency emitting wearable devices, called ANF Discs. Each disc is applied directly on the skin and activated by your own body heat. They transmit a unique range of frequencies through the neurons in the body. Your nervous system picks up these specific frequencies and incorporates them which begins a self-healing and self-regulating process. By improving the nervous system signaling directly at the cellular level, the effect of the treatment is much faster and has remarkable durable results. The ANF Therapy does not require the use of any drugs or chemicals.
Discs can be used for all systems of the body and are great for relief of pain and inflammation. Inflammation can be dormant in your body for ten years before signs of pain or discomfort. Disfunction and imbalance in one area of the body can affect other systems as well. These discs can be used anywhere on the body to promote health and healing.
In addition to any orthopedic, muscle testing and full body analysis we may perform at our office, we also utilize the most innovative and scientific technology to track your care and progress. Our Insight Millennium analyzes how your body handles stress, muscles balance, range of motion. It also monitors your heart rate, skin temperature and measures any stress on your organs giving us a picture of your full health status. This is a whole body analysis that can track your progress before and during your care to see if your goals are being achieved and if anything else needs to be addressed. It is used by Cardiologists, professional athletes and personal trainers. It is completely painless, non-invasive, safe and has no side effects.
Stress assessments help reveal important physical information that may not be apparent in the body but may be looming and waiting to surface as a symptom. As you know, sometimes we don’t know we have a problem until it causes us pain or discomfort. We provide these scans to find out how healthy you are and also track your progress during your treatment schedule. This scan shows how your nervous system is functioning by analyzing your heart rate, skin temperature, muscle balance and strength as well as your spinal health. It also analyzes the balance between your sympathetic and parasympathetic activity in the body.

Getting into a car accident can be very serious, even if the impact was not at a high speed. Getting care quickly is best to avoid long term problems that can occur if left untreated. Some of the problems people may experience after an accident are whiplash, low back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, headaches, arm pain, weakness when trying to grip, insomnia, loss of memory, vertigo, and TMJ. When it comes to injuries after a car accident, time is of the essence. Permanent damage can occur and scar tissue can develop very quickly without proper treatment in as little as 48 hours. Sometimes you may not feel the symptoms right away because of the shock of the accident but when they come, they are often severely painful.
We are experts treating car accident victims and can help. We use advanced diagnostics to track your body during the treatments and treat your whole body making it easy for you to recover. We can work with attorneys on a lien, with your car insurance (Med-Pay), or create affordable cash plans.

Dr. Gregory is a Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner. After graduating from chiropractic school, she continued her education and has completed additional corrective care training set by the Council on Extremity Adjusting. The focus of extremity adjusting and analysis is to make sure the whole body is addressed. The nervous system is not only addressed in the spine but we track the branches that lead to the extremities. We want to make sure all areas are functioning throughout and if there is a problem outside of the spine, it can be addressed. Many people have headaches, shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, ankle and foot pain that can not always be cured with a spinal adjustment and may need additional work. We want to make sure your whole body is balanced and working together harmoniously as a unit. This will enable you to achieve total wellness and prevent problems in the future.

Dr. Gregory was the first chiropractor to use this progressive therapy in San Mateo County and is an expert at the technique. SASTM is utilized by the Stanford University Athletic Department for their athletes because it has been proven to get results. This technique uses specially designed instruments to separate and break down scar tissue that has accumulated in muscles, ligaments and tendons after an injury, even a minor one. Injuries cause acute or chronic pain, inflammation and decreased movement. After using this treatment, there is an increase in mobility, cellular activity, fibroblastic activity (tissue that plays a critical role in wound healing) and an accelerated amount of blood flow to and from the area. This promotes the healing process and allows the tissues to realign in the appropriate manner without knots or adhesions leading to decreased movement and elevating the risk of another injury. This is great for athletes, repetitive stress injuries and even people with desk jobs who sit for long hours at a time. SASTM is a Graston technique that is accurate at finding problems areas and working out these areas so your body can move the way it should without restriction.

Dr. Larry Webster, Founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association discovered this technique as a safe means to restore proper pelvic balance and function for pregnant mothers. In expectant mothers who have pelvic or low back pain or have been told their baby is breech, this technique is performed with amazing results. According to the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (2002), an 82% success rate is seen by Webster Technique Certified Chiropractors who work with mothers with babies presenting breech or transverse. I have personally treated a mother to be that was 40 weeks pregnant with success. It has also successfully used with twins.
This technique is fast, gentle and effective. We use this technique not only to help the pelvis loosen up by affecting the round ligament which hold the uterus in position, but to keep the mother and baby relaxed throughout pregnancy. For more information please click this link Webster Technique.
In many cases your doctor will have you wait to see if your baby turns on their own but if still breech by approximately 36–37 weeks, your doctor will probably suggest attempting external cephalic version. This is when your doctor attempts to turn your baby while still in the uterus by pushing on the baby with his or her hands through your abdomen. This procedure can bring about complications including vaginal bleeding, premature rupture of membranes, fetal distress and premature labor. If there are no complications but your baby is still breech after this procedure, then a schedule C-Section is scheduled. The Webster technique is safer, less invasive and it also prepares your pelvis for birth making it easier for you and your baby and avoiding C-section.
