Our Chiropractic Techniques
Integrator (Precise instrument adjusting)
The Integrator (see Figure 1) has true force adjustment as well as choice of three tip sizes, shapes and density characteristics to allow for the chiropractor the greatest outcome in correcting almost any subluxation that can present itself. The Integrator™ is a legally marketed medical device for the adjustment of the Vertebral Subluxation; only available to licensed doctors of Chiropractic. Key advantages of using the Integrator:
- PRECISE: When using an Integrator you can pinpoint the exact point on the spine that requires adjustment. Manual adjusting in some cases lacks this degree of accuracy.
- SPECIFIC: The force, frequency of energy, torque, speed and thrust provided by the Integrator have all been tailor-made to deliver the perfect amount of energy required by the joint.
- GENTLE: An Integrator adjustment can be delivered with the spine in a perfectly relaxed neutral position with the perfect amount of force: Whereas a traditional adjustment requires the spine to be stretched to a position of tension followed by the manual thrust by hand to sufficiently open the spinal joints to activate a cavitation response.
This particular set of chiropractic techniques seems to the observer (and usually receiver) to be extremely light and almost incapable of producing any effect whatsoever. The key to the success of the adjustments, however, is the speed with which they are delivered. The McTimoney chiropractor’s specialism is a type of swift thrust known as the “toggle torque recoil” technique (see Figure 2). To perform the toggle torque recoil, the practitioner uses one hand as a “hammer” and the other as a “nail”. In effect, the hammer pushes and torques the nail in the desired direction with one extremely swift, painless movement, with almost instantaneous recoil. This effectively frees the joint and eases the tension in the surrounding muscles.
There is nothing inside of you that wants you to function at anything less than the greatest levels that you’re capable of having. The only catch is that your body requires clear communication with the brain, free from any interference. This communication happens through your body’s nerve system, making it in charge of every other operation in the body.
Promoting Brain-body Communication
As chiropractor, Dr Eva Lobato is communication expert. Like any relationship in life, your brain and body need a high level of communication to stay well. The benefits of chiropractic care that you’ll experience are practically endless! Our practice members tell us that they wake up after sleeping better feeling more energetic, are happier and more productive. Increased immunity is another common benefit, and when you do get sick, you’ll be able to recover more quickly.
Getting Better and Staying Well
There are two phases of care at Chiro Family Practice. If we evaluate you and decide that we can help, we’ll have a plan of how many visits you’ll need to resolve your issues. At this point, you’ll be in restoration care. Then, you’ll transition into wellness care.
It’s similar to if you wanted to lose weight, you’d work out often and with a high intensity at the beginning. Once you reach your goal weight, you’ll maintain your progress instead of stopping workouts and gaining back the weight. You’ll continue on that healthy path, sustaining your results or even continuing to improve.
