Chiropractic Care

Based on years of experience and excellent clinical judgment, Dr. Christel can provide the chiropractic care that you need to reach your health goals. He is skilled in using several modalities that help you heal the problems your body has been accumulating as you move back toward healthy habits.

While there are exceptions related to injuries or traumatic events like car accidents, most misalignments or subluxations appear after a long period of unhealthy living. Our goal is to help you reverse the negative effects with each visit and set you on a better path.

Our Techniques

Dr. Christel can use a number of highly effective adjusting approaches to fix subluxations, improve spinal biomechanics, and reduce nervous system interference.

These are the primary adjusting techniques used:

  • Diversified: After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints.
  • Activator Methods®: This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust.
  • SOT: Sacro Occipital Technique helps normalize the relationship between the pelvis and the head, using gravity to make the correction.
  • Impulse: We use a small handheld adjusting instrument called the Impulse. This instrument is gentle, effective, and popular with many of our patients.
If you have visited a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, just let Dr. Christel know. He wants you to be comfortable and fully enjoy the process and benefits of your chiropractic care.
