Chiropractic Techniques: What is the most effective chiropractic technique for you?
After performing an exam, consult and talking with you about your what may be causing your symptoms, we will go over your goals. Then, Dr. Gregory will figure out a plan and technique that is right for you. Gentle, effective spinal and extremity care will be administered along with several specialized techniques to help with soft tissue, pregnancy and nerve healing.
Techniques that may be performed in addition to chiropractic care at our Redwood City office:

2. Graston (SASTM) Technique:

3. Webster Technique (Prenatal Chiropractic Care):
This technique is great for expectant mothers to prepare for birth or if baby is in breech position. Keeping the pelvis aligned with the sacrum allows more room for the baby and helps with a more comfortable birth. It is also useful for pregnant women who have pelvic, pubic bone, low back pain, sciatica or are searching for a holistic way to help keep their body ready for delivery. This technique is easy, quick and gets amazing results.
4. Cold Laser Therapy:
Cold laser helps with nerve healing, pain and decreases inflammation. Laser therapy stimulates your body’s natural healing power at a cellular level. Cold Laser uses what is called “Photon energy” which is basically the energy produced by light, to stimulate the activity of your cell and its components. This therapy is effective, painless and best of all you don’t have to take a drug to feel the effects.
5. Full Body Health Assessment:
In addition to physical exam, we may use the Insight Millennium which is used by Cardiologists, professional athletes and trainers recording progress during care. This innovative device allows us to make sure we address anything that may eventually show up as a problem. It is completely painless, non-invasive, safe with no side effects. This Machine examines your spinal health, muscle patterns and Heart Rate Variability. This helps us see where you are now and track your progress.
6. Zone Technique:
The Zone Technique is a chiropractic healing method which uses biomechanical and neurological input to restore health by improving the brain’s communication with the six zones of the body through the spinal cord and branching nerves.
The brain has six centers which connect to corresponding zones in the body need to be balanced for your body to work properly. If they are balanced, YOU are balanced! The foundation of The Zone Technique is the theory that any disturbances in the body are within one or more of these zones and can be attributed to the brain’s inability to communicate effectively with that zone.
Dr. Gregory will identify which zone or zones need healing in order to create a customized treatment plan for you and make sure your brain and spinal cord are communicating the way they should.
Applying one or more of these techniques will get you healthy fast and effectively and keep you that way. If you are looking to maintain your health, get ready for an athletic event or have pain after an injury, contact us! We will work with you to help you reach your goals.
