Expert Chiropractic Care
Main Chiropractic Technique
We offer both manual and instrument adjustment methods, depending upon the patient’s preference. When using the manual technique, we can vary the amount of force and specific approach used to best fit patient age, condition and specific ailment (i.e., degeneration). Dr. McAndrew has purchased specialized equipment that allows him to customize his approach to best serve patient need and desire. Dr. McAndrew also holds advanced certification in the Activator Methods technique. Activator is an instrument adjusting chiropractic technique that produces one of the lightest-force adjustments that Chiropractic can offer. Activator applies a repeatable, low-force impact to a specific area that achieves desired alignment. No “bending, twisting, popping, or cracking” is involved.
Acupuncture, a Chinese therapy, has over 3,000 years of anecdotal evidence proving its health and wellness benefits. It is proven to be a safe, natural and effective treatment for a broad spectrum of disorders, stimulating the brain and nervous system while balancing the body’s energy. The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture and traditional Oriental medicine’s ability to treat over 43 common disorders.
