Chiropractic Adjustment: The
adjustment Dr. Laber will give is based on each patient.
It is dependent on how the nerves are pinched, and where
in the spine they are pinched. He
also takes in to account the wishes of the patient. There are over 100 ways
to adjust. Some are very gentle, and others are more aggressive. We primarily perform Diversified adjustments, but we will utilize Activator and Muscle Testing upon request.
Intersegmental Traction: The
purpose of Intersegmental traction is to stretch all of the
spinal joints while increasing mobility. IST helps increase
and restores necessary elasticity
and motion to the spine. It feels a lot like a massage. It exercises spinal
muscles without any effort by the patient.
Nutritional Consultations: Dr.
Laber will have the patient fill out an extensive review
of their health. Many health conditions may benefit from
increases in specific vitamins and
enzymes. He will ask questions regarding current diet, and exercise habits.
And if required, he will recommend supplementation. We carry Standard Process
Vitamins, which are dispensed by Health Care Professionals only.
