Our chiropractor Dr. Melo uses extremely light force adjustments with no cracking or popping of the spine. By directing a light force down a specific angle (or vector), a mechanical advantage is gained by using the weight of the head to provide leverage. It works in the same way that allows you to carry hundreds of pounds in a wheelbarrow with little effort.

The variable frequency instrument adjuster is connected to a sophisticated computer program. This allows the chiropractor to set the frequency and force needed to re-align and correct your spine with a hand-held instrument.
Scientists have tested and reported the optimum forces and frequency combinations to help each vertebrae in your spine. It’s just like a specific key working for a specific lock. The use of these combinations will give you fine-tuned correction of NeuroStructural Shifts.

Studies have shown that palpating or simply “feeling” the spine is neither accurate nor valid when it comes to spinal motion.
Often, lower areas of the spine will become “locked” in a certain position. By using specific video X-ray analysis, your chiropractor can pinpoint the exact location of these locks and apply the proper adjustment to correct them. This technology takes the guesswork out of evaluating the spinal motion. In addition, we utilize specific X-ray filters and techniques to decrease radiation exposure levels over 80% compared to traditional X-ray.
The best part is the patient can very clearly see when the spinal motion returns to normal.

A thermal scan is a non-invasive tool used by your chiropractor that supplies a wealth of information about how you are healing.

Thermography is a tool used to record heat patterns that radiate from your body. Research has shown that abnormally functioning human cells give off a different heat reading than healthy cells. Thermal scans on each visit help identify areas of your body that are not healing properly and measure your progress. This allows the doctor to customize your care during each visit to maximize your results.

Low level laser therapy is a painless, sterile, non-invasive, drug-free treatment that is used by a chiropractor to help reduce pain and inflammation. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and provides patients with an alternative to drugs and surgery.
Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You may feel soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.

Normally functioning muscle and tissue are not only arranged in a very organized and parallel manner, but if you were to look at them on edge, they are flat and smooth, like a piece of paper. Once muscle or tissue is injured (stretched, pulled, torn, etc.), the microscopic fibers become disrupted and disorganized. Instead of fibers running parallel to each other in an organized fashion with their normal degree of elasticity/flexibility, the fibers now run every possible direction and have an extremely diminished amount of organization and elasticity. When this occurs, you will begin to experience a reduction of joint motion, which is then followed by a symptom with which many are familiar – pain. Without treatment from a chiropractor, this pain is followed by joint degeneration.

Results Chiropractic utilizes a number of different techniques to break apart the disorganized tissue in order to allow it to heal in an organized pattern.

Massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of normalizing those tissues and consists of manual techniques, which include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding and/or causing movement of or to the body. In addition to seeing a chiropractor, massage therapy boosts your body’s ability to recover and heal from damage or injury. Massage is also known to positively affect the circulation and flow of blood, reduce muscular tension, and enhance tissue healing.
