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 clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

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»

Cold Laser Therapy

Dr. Foster uses Cold Laser Therapy treatments to accelerate pain relief and healing. Laser therapy uses various wavelengths of light to stimulate the tissues on the surface as well as the deeper tissues. It is natural, painless, safe, and side-effect free. It controls inflammation and increases joint movement. It is useful in treating upwards of 300 conditions. Laser treatment sessions vary from 6-10 minutes in duration.
