Our Techniques

At Active Chiropractic Center we take a holistic approach to your health. We specialize in:

Applied Kinesiology

(AK) Applied kinesiology (AK) is a form of diagnosis using muscle testing as a primary feedback mechanism to examine how a person’s body is functioning. When properly applied, the outcome of an AK diagnosis will determine the best form of therapy for the patient. Since AK draws together the core elements of many complementary therapies, it provides an interdisciplinary approach to health care.

Exercise Programming

Whether you are an elite athlete or have never been to the gym, you can schedule an appointment for a customized exercise prescription. The session will be held at a gym, and will include strength training, cardiovascular endurance and dietary recommendations. Improving all three of these areas together will dramatically accelerate your progress toward reaching your fitness goal. We will write out key aspects such as which exercises to do with the correct number of sets and repetitions, your target heart rate range, how many calories you need to gain or lose weight and several other considerations. The frequency and intensity of your recommended workouts will be gradually increased based on your progress, motivation, available time for exercise and demonstration of proper lifting form.

Low Level Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy, also referred to as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a modality which utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and has been found to help accelerate the healing process. The laser is emitted from a hand held device, and painlessly penetrates the skin's surface to reach damaged tissue and reduce inflammation and pain. It can be used for a variety of acute and chronic conditions to help reduce pain, swelling and spasms and increase functionality. LLLT is also effective in the treatment of skin ailments, such as acne and scars as well as for anti-aging with wrinkles and fine lines.
