There are many chiropractic treatment techniques used by chiropractic physicians. While the chiropractic profession is primarily the spinal adjustment, there are many other techniques exist for treating the spine, as well as other joints and tissues.

Here at Gatza Chiropractic we specialize in the following treatments:

  • Joint Manipulation (aka “the adjustment”), a treatment used to restore and improve spinal function and mechanics based on joint assessment and patient necessity.

  • Flexion-Distraction Technique, another form of joint manipulation and spinal decompression therapy that utilizes a special table to gently stretch the spine to take pressure of the joints and intervertebral discs. 

  • Active Release Technique® (ART), a movement-based, myofascial release therapy involving stretching and tractioning of the affected tissue for treating conditions involving muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves.
