CHIROPRACTIC

Alternative Treatment with Chiropractic Medicine

Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the belief that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system. It is the largest alternative medical treatment. The main chiropractic treatment technique performed by Schrickel Health & Wellness Center involves manipulation of the spine and soft tissue, but may also include exercises, health and lifestyle counseling.

Let the professionals at Schrickel Health & Wellness Center help you through this time toward your recovery. Many of our patients are amazed at how good they feel after undergoing chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Treatment Methods Offered by Dr. Schrickel

Chiropractic is a system of diagnoses and treatment based on the concept that the nervous system coordinates all of the body’s functions and that diseases can result from a lack of normal nerve function. Schrickel Health & Wellness Center offers two types of spinal manipulation – The Activator method and the Pro Adjuster method.

arrow ACTIVATOR METHOD

The Activator method uses a small, hand-held instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to deliver a gentle impulse force to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted spinal vertebra or joint.

arrow PRO ADJUSTER METHOD

We move the U-shaped Pro Adjuster instrument down your spine, touching each of the vertebra and allowing it to detect areas of misalignment. After that, Dr. Schrickel holds the instrument on the problem vertebra and the machine uses a series of gentle taps to shift the vertebra back into optimal position.
