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:

Sacro Occipital Technique helps normalize the relationship between the pelvis and the head, using gravity to make the necessary correction. read more»

Pain Elimination Technique (PET)

It is a NEW series of procedures to instantly turn off pain, greatly increase range of motion, and restore normal muscle function. The speed and simplicity of these techniques is amazing. Treatment time has come way down, the percentage of success is much higher, and the likelihood of instant symptom relief on the people I’ve seen has skyrocketed. What could be more impressive than instant, lasting relief of chronic pain?

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let Dr. James Kolwaite know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
