Chiropractic is for everyone!
Dr. Luke utilizes Activator Methods, which is the most researched instrument adjusting technique in the world. The activator instrument delivers a comfortable, precise thrust that is so quick you may not even notice it! This also allows for the patient to be more relaxed during the adjustment. Dr. Luke is advanced proficiency rated in the Activator Technique and has been so since September 2009.
Chiropractic is not only effective at treating pain conditions. It may also help with:
- Chronic sinusitis
- Premenstrual discomfort
- Ear infections
- Neurological conditions
- Frozen shoulder
And many more!
Chiropractic for babies and children
Adjustments can be helpful with colic, acid reflux, ear infection and digestive issues in babies and children. For a baby’s first few adjustments Dr. Luke will use her hands and light pressure usually to a vertebrae in the neck. It is a very gentle adjustment. Dr. Luke adjusted both her twins shortly after their birth, and they get regular adjustments, usually weekly! The twins have yet to be on antibiotics or get an ear infection.
Chiropractic keeps kiddos healthy! As your child grows, adjustments can continue to help with ear infections, digestive issues, and even improved sleeping.
