The two adjusting techniques we specialize in at Novel Chiropractic are among the most up-to-date functional, scientific, and neurologically based models. These techniques have been shown to produce the highest outcomes in biomechanical and neurological improvement.
- Upper Cervical Chiropractic - It is estimated that of the 100,000 chiropractors in the world approximately 1,800 of those specialize in Upper Cervical Chiropractic. Dr. Collins has earned over 200 additional hours in advanced post-graduate upper cervical training and certification. Part of this training involved traveling to San Salvador, El Salvador to provide care and service for the community in Santo Tomas.
- Torque Release Technique - Torque Release is among the newest, most effective, and well-studied techniques in the field. Dr. Collins has earned over 100 additional hours in advanced training and certification in the technique. Torque Release involves using The Integrator, an FDA approved, torque and recoil release adjusting instrument which provides a gentle and clinically reproducible adjustment appropriate for all ages.
specific chiropractic adjusting
A specific chiropractic adjustment is delivered only when nervous system dysfunction is present as indicated by paraspinal thermography. When clinically necessary, the adjustment is made to the spine to restore integrity within the nervous system. Following the adjustment, the patient undergoes a post-adjustment neural recuperation in a zero-gravity position; after which, another thermograph is used to confirm that the correction has been made. The correction allows the body to restore proper communication between the brain and cells throughout the body.
computed infrared paraspinal thermography
Thermography is a medical technology that is FDA approved as a neurodiagnostic procedure. In our office, this technology is utilized by scanning a temperature sensitive device over the spine. A computerized analysis produces a graph which reveals dysfunction in the nervous system. This procedure is used on every visit to objectively monitor the course of patient care.
precision laser aligned digital x-ray
Unique to the private chiropractic office, Novel Chiropractic utilizes state-of-the-art technology with precision laser-aligned digital radiography for the most accurate and effective x-ray available today. X-ray images are taken and analyzed by the doctor to determine the three-dimensional displacement of the upper cervical vertebrae. Be assured that radiological examinations are performed only when clinically necessary to ensure proper patient care.
