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:

Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.


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

Various Soft Tissue Techniques

Dr. Bailey examines and treats soft tissue dysfunction using massage, transverse friction, proprioceptive neurofacilitation, strain-counter strain, and positional release techniques. Soft tissue pain arises from tissues that are either too long, or too short, and in the case of muscles, too weak or too strong. Treatment is designed to bring the painful tissues back into their proper length and strength, with as much patient comfort as possible. The result is remarkably less pain during daily activities and sleep.

Variable Percussor and Variable Adjustor

Variable Percussor and Variable Adjustor: These are mechanical devices to treat soft tissue and joint restrictions with safe, gentle, well-regulated forces. Many patients prefer these techniques to other more vigorous chiropractic techniques. These tools are used by Dr. Bailey for a “no popping” chiropractic adjustment, with the goal of pain relief, and normal posture and movement.

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.
