Our Chiropractic Techniques

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our judgment and years of experience. We treat auto and work injuries, sports and extremity injuries, children, pregnancy care, and geriatrics.  On site services include massage therapy, rehab, personal training, physical therapy exercises, nutrition, and weight management.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Chiropractic adjusting image

Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.


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

Neuromechanical Impulse

This handheld instrument delivers a carefully measured and directed thrust that is many times faster than is possible by hand, so less force needed. read more»

Therapeutic Massage

You will find that massage, alone or with chiropractic care, can help you feel better. read more»

Dr. Manibog also uses a Leander Motion Adjusting table, which utilizes lowforce drop techniques. Corrective relief and rehabilitation with a focus on Wellness care.

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let Dr. Maria E. Manibog know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
