Dr. Ferris adjusting lower backWe Can Help

Chiropractic adjustments provide pain relief and increase mobility; many of our patients report that adjustments help them stand up straighter, which makes them feel taller. Adjustments help many specific conditions, including sciatica, neck pain, lower back pain, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, and numbness & tingling. Acupuncture treatments are blended into the treatment plan, to provide deeper and longer-lasting pain relief.

A Gentle Approach

Dr. Ferris puts her patients at ease by telling them what to expect every step of the way. Her adjustment approach is very gentle; she uses only as much force as is needed to attain the best result.

Customized Adjustment Techniques

The adjustment techniques most often used at Dr. Diane Ferris are:

  • Diversified Technique, designed to restore proper alignment of the spine, restoring movement and easing joint dysfunction.
  • Thompson. This is a softer, gentler technique, ideal for someone with a bone condition such as osteoporosis.
  • Gonstead. A bio-mechanical approach, this technique focuses on being as precise as possible, addressing only the problem areas.
  • Activator Method, which uses a small, hand-held instrument to deliver a gentle impulse force to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted area.
  • Flexion Distraction Technique, in which a specialized table is used to gently stretch the spine.
