What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is the movement of joints that are misaligned or subluxated, performed by a Chiropractor. This movement is called an adjustment. While the focus can usually be the spine, most joints in the body can be adjusted (see the extensive list at the bottom of the page).

Adjustments not only help the joints move better, but they take tension off the surrounding muscles, decrease local inflammation, and can calm the nervous system. This is where pain-based care turns into wellness care.

Fun fact: there are over 200 adjusting techniques used world wide. Dr. Ellis uses Diversified (her hands), Thompson technique (table drop), and Activator (hand held instrument) depending on the patient and area to be treated.

Treatments and treatment plans vary by patient and are based on what stage of what spinal misalignment you are in.

Common Conditions We See and Treat Daily

Chiropractic care encompasses a regular treatment plan ​of adjustments aimed initially at helping to relieve pain and discomfort, then to help prevent future problems.

Chiropractic care can treat many musculoskeletal conditions including (but not limited to):

  • Neck Pain

  • Cervical radiculopathy (radiating pain, numbness and/or tingling from ​neck into shoulders, arms, and sometimes even into hands and fingers)

  • Upper back pain

  • Lower back pain

  • Sciatica (radiating pain, numbness and/or tingling from ​low back into hips, legs, and sometimes even into feet and toes)

  • Disc bulges and herniations (these can be reduced or eliminated with adjustments or decompression)

  • Pain during pregnancy (including back, hips, and abdominal pain (round ligament).

  • Extraspinal joint pain (shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, hips, knees, ankles, toes and TMJ (jaw) and ribs, both where they attach in the back to the spine or where they attach in the front to the sternum, clavicles, even ears!)

  • Whiplash from any accident, especially car accidents

  • Arthritis in most joints (we love MLS laser therapy for this as well!)

  • Headaches/Migraines (most of these start at the neck!)

  • Sprains/Strains of any joint

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • and so many more!

Chiropractic Techniques Used In Our Office


This is the original adjusting technique, created in 1895 in Davenport, Iowa. This technique involves using hands to thrust over a restricted joints to restore normal motion in the joint. The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners reports that, although the typical chiropractor uses as many as five or six different adjusting techniques in their practice, 96% say that the Diversified technique is one of them.


This technique produces precise adjustments and high levels of patient comfort. The Thompson Technique is a unique approach patented by Dr. Thompson in 1955. Individual cushions or “drop pieces” located along the table surface support each area of your spine until the chiropractic adjustment is delivered. Then, each drop piece gently gives way, reducing the amount of energy needed to move a specific spinal segment.



This technique is a chiropractic treatment using a device as an alternative to manual manipulation of the spine or extremity joints. The Activator is a small handheld, spring-loaded instrument which delivers a controlled and reproducible impulse to the spine. There is no "popping" or "clicking" of joints during this adjustment; therefore, it is considered very gentle.
