A chiropractic adjustment is the primary chiropractic treatment method for back pain.
Spinal manipulation relieves pressure on joints, reduces inflammation, and improves nerve function. It has been a trusted form of treatment since the ancient Greek Hippocrates documented manipulative techniques in his writings back in 1500 B.C. Today, spinal manipulation is used to treat a variety of different conditions such as back pain, menstrual cramps and headaches.
How Do Spinal Adjustments Help?
There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Some practitioners may use more manual techniques, while other techniques are more gentle. Dr. King prefers to use a combination of different methods that work best for your condition. Regardless of how they are performed, these techniques are intended to restore or enhance joint function with the objectives of reducing pain and resolving joint inflammation.
When vertebrae shift out of place, there is an overall systemic response from the muscular system to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow, our nerves, our immune system, and our minds cannot function at their highest peak.
Overall, spinal adjustments and manipulations are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level without any discomfort. There are many different ways that chiropractic adjustments can benefit you. Dr. King will always discuss with you which method may be best for resolving your issue the quickest. When the body is adequately aligned, it becomes able to respond and perform as it was built to do.
When chiropractic care is used in conjunction with massage therapy, both treatments work together to create a harmonious effect, resulting in a much faster recovery time for the patient. When the body becomes more relaxed through massage, it allows the doctor of chiropractic to smoothly realign various parts of it.
Chiropractic massage has been proven to assist in mending of a large number of conditions including:
Chiropractic care is an excellent method for improving overall health and musculoskeletal efficiency, while massage has a number of beneficial effects on the body and the mind. Chiropractic massage additionally benefits patients with muscle spasms, as well as soft tissue injuries.
We currently have the following types of massage therapy:
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing method that uses needles or other forms of stimulation to access certain points along invisible “highways” or meridians that run along and through the body. These meridians carry your life-force or Chi to various organs and tissues. Stimulating these points can help your body release “stagnations” or remove interference and support your natural healing process.
Medical Acupuncture is a practice of using proven points and protocols along certain meridians to resolve or improve a variety of conditions such as headaches, migraines, neck pain, frozen shoulder, arm pains, general spasms, stiffness, low back pain, digestive issues, low energy and general wellness maintenance. We have also applied Korean hand therapy/acupuncture for enhanced healing effects.
As a Chinese-American, Dr. King grew up with Acupuncture, Chinese herbs and a “treat the health imbalance not just the symptom” philosophy from his parents.
Acupuncture doesn't have to hurt! There are a variety of methods for stimulating and utilizing appropriate acupuncture points to achieve amazing healing effects.
Dr. King will always address and discuss your concerns as well as other treatment options should Acupuncture not resolve your issues.

Low-energy lasers have been promoted as an effective way to produce pain relief.
