Chiropractic the Art & Science, Styles, Concepts, Techniques, Basis, Provider Types.

Dr. Dana’s style of adjusting is formally and professionally known as “Diversified”. This is the primary style taught by all of the chiropractic colleges in the United States. This technique is required by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners.

My focus is chiropractic orthopedics, but I do prescribe natural medicines, herbal supplement remedies, and use traditional and combination homeopathics.

I am primarily a manual (hands-on) adjuster. I also utilize an Impulse (TM) adjusting instrument for chiropractic instrument adjusting, typically as a follow up to manual therapies. I also use an Activator impulse adjusting instrument to move very small joints, or to do subtle work with someone who is sensitive, arthritic or osteoporotic.

I also utilize other styles to round out my treatments, which allows me to tailor my adjustments to a patient’s needs and preference.

These styles include:

  • Diversified Technique
  • Sacral-Occipital Technique (“SOT”)
  • Gonstead (Limited)
  • Myofascial Release and Massage Therapy.
  • Cranio Sacral Therapy (but not Somato-Emotional Release TM ) and Strain/Counterstrain Release Techniques
  • ActivatorTM Impulse Adjusting Instrument (But not Activator MethodsTM technique)
  • Muscle Energy techniques
  • Low Force / Non-Force Release techniques, Acupressure
  • Leander Motorized Flexion-Distraction
  • Drop-Table
  • Zenith High-Low Thompson Terminal-Point Drops
  • Manual, Mechanical, and Pneumatic Traction.
  • Low-Tech Rehab (PT-Balls, Theraband Resistance Bands, Medicine-Balls,
  • Trampoline/Rebounder, Plyometrics, BodyBladeTM , Free Weights)
  • Graston Myofascial Release Technique
  • Rapid Release Technique
  • Kinesiotaping
  • Cold Laser
