Dr. amy's Approach

It is our intention to provide life enhancing chiropractic care along with education on how to optimize your body’s inborn wisdom and healing potential. We hope to instil in you a deep level of trust in the fact that health comes from within and that by making informed and balanced decisions for your health, you can truly create the highest quality of life possible.

We use a variety of techniques to adjust the spine and remove interference to the nervous system, depending on age, size, and chiropractic findings. Adjusting techniques vary significantly from an infant, child, and pregnant woman, adult or senior. All techniques are gentle and respectful of each person’s unique needs and preferences.

Dr. Amy’s approach is to read each person’s body to determine what he/she needs to release tension and find balance. Using a combination of gentle, low force techniques, structural adjustments, breath work and cranial adjustments, she assists in freeing the nervous system of interference, allowing for a greater expression of health and life in the body.

EVALUATING YOUR CURRENT SITUATION

The Chiropractic Assessment

Your chiropractic assessment consists of a thorough assessment of your spine and nervous system. This includes a postural assessment, full body ranges of motion, testing of balance and coordination, a hands-on assessment of your spine including a cranial assessment, as well as a computerized scan. These scans are easy, painless and non-invasive, using state of the art computerized technology and manual assessments that take readings of your body.

These computerized scans reflect three separate and distinct measurements that help Dr. Amy evaluate your neurospinal health.

All you have to do is sit still for a few moments while we do the scans along your spine. (Whether these are done on children, and at what age depends on individual factors for each child)

Our office’s technology helps us to assess the health of your spine and nervous system whether you have symptoms or not. This technology adapts for any age, including newborns and children. Most people leave our office stating that ‘this was the most thorough assessment I have ever had!’.
