Our Chiropractic Techniques

Woman getting adjustmentPrimary Adjusting Approaches

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach Ploucha Chiropractic Center uses is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust.


Clinical Biomechanics of Posture® is focused on producing improved posture, balance, spinal alignment and restoration of essential spinal curves.


After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints.


This full spine approach relies on X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results.


Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine.
