Project Description

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 are explained to the right.


After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints.

Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust.


Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine.


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

Upper cervical specific

Upper cervical specific is a low force gentle technique that will focus on the balance and tone of the central nervous system. If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let us know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.

My issues regarding sinuses, digestion, reaction to stress, and fatigue are no longer something that occupy my day. Dr. Luke has not only provided me healing power through adjustments, but he has been a proficient educator and an inspiration.
