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:

Chiropractic adjusting

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»

Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust. read more»


Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine. read more»

Pro Adjuster

The Pro-Adjuster is an instrument that utilizes the latest computer technology to evaluate very small motion abnormalities of the bones of the spine and, under the control of the doctor, specifically treats the involved segments. After the analysis and during the treatment the Pro-Adjuster tests the spine to determine when each spinal segment has reached the optimum state of motion and then is used to retest the area. By continuous analysis the computer monitor displays a graph showing the changes occurring.

The instrument becomes an extension of the Dr. Parent’s hand and provides data that insures certainty and confidence regarding your care.

This method of care enables us to provide results that are consistent, measurable, and extremely gentle.

The Pro-Adjuster uses the same type of technology that allows engineers to determine and handle weakness and stress on spacecraft.

SEMG Nervous System Scan

We use technology to measure the condition of your nervous system. It’s a noninvasive procedure called surface EMG.  read more»

Custom Made Foot Orthotics

At Parent Chiropractic Center, we offer custom-made orthotics from Foot Levelers. These orthotics are individualized to stabilize your spine and pelvis by correcting imbalances in your feet— the foundation of your skeletal system. These imbalances may occur even if you’re not experiencing foot pain. Though they may go unnoticed, these imbalances contribute to postural misalignments, pain in areas throughout your body and fatigue.

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