At Market Place Chiropractic Wellness Center we offer a variety of therapeutic techniques for chiropractic, massage and wellness care.Adjustments are geared toward reducing postural distortions and restoring normal function. Having over 20 years of clinical experience, Dr. Clark has studied and developed numerous chiropractic techniques. These include the more traditional hands-on manual adjusting techniques as well as light force instrument adjusting. We use drop table adjusting throughout the spine but most commonly in the pelvis. We also perform specific adjustments on the cranial bones of the skull. Occasionally the bones of the arms, elbows, hands, legs, knees and feet (apendicular skeleton) may also require an adjustment, but our focus is always the spine (axial skeleton).

Dr. Clark does not practice a singular named technique in which all patients must fit into a certain mold. Instead, he has morphed numerous techniques into what is best for each individual practice member. On any given visit, he may utilize a combination of manual, instrument and drop table adjusting, or may just use a singular type of adjustment. While he generally performs adjustments on all spinal regions, it is not uncommon for him to only adjust a single region or even a single vertebral level. There is never a cookie cutter approach, and the needs, desires, safety and comfort of each individual patient are paramount in the approach to care that is delivered.

Applied Kinesiology

Applied Kinesiology muscle testing or muscle response testing: In general, the applied kinesiologist finds a muscle that tests weak and then attempts to determine why that muscle is not functioning properly. The practitioner will then evaluate and apply the therapy that will best eliminate the muscle weakness and help the patient. Therapies utilized can include specific joint manipulation or mobilization, various myofascial therapies, cranial techniques, meridian therapy, clinical nutrition, dietary management and various reflex procedures.

ArthroStim

This handheld device delivers precise low force adjustments with a frequency of 12-14 light taps per second. This frequency is also known as the Schumann resonance. The Schumann resonance is often referred to as the earth’s background base frequency, or “heartbeat.” To optimize healing within your body, a harmonization and rhythm must be established. It has been found that the Schumann resonance is just such a healing frequency. All this must sound a bit complicated, but the main thing to remember is that chiropractors have been getting fantastic results working with patients with all types of different conditions using a very light, very safe, and most importantly, very effective technique.

Chiropractic Biophysics

Chiropractic BioPhysics®, orCBP®, is, in short, a higher level of chiropractic. It is a more knowledgeable, comprehensive, systematic, scientific approach to chiropractic that provides predictable results for patients. CBP® combines standard chiropractic joint adjustments with mirror image® (opposite position) postural adjustments, mirror image® spinal/postural exercise, and mirror-image® traction to provide more permanent relief and improved health for patients through spine and postural correction.

Diversified

One of the techniques that we use at our practice is the most commonly used adjustment technique by chiropractors, as it is characterized by a high velocity – low amplitude thrust. Diversified is considered the most generic chiropractic manipulative technique and is differentiated from other techniques in that its objective is to restore proper movement and alignment of spine and joint dysfunction. This form of spinal manipulation consists of a short, fast force applied to the specific joints to instill motion, stretch surrounding muscles, and stimulate the nervous system. Diversified adjustments use a specific line of manual thrust that goes deep into the joint. This corrects mechanical distortions of the spine or joint within the joint cavity and also stretches the soft tissue, which may have formed around the misaligned joint. By adjusting the spine or joint, and thrusting it into its proper position, the fluids and tissue move more freely and are distributed properly within the joint, which can ease pain and discomfort. There are extensive research studies that prove the efficacy and safety of the chiropractic adjustment.

MC2

MC2 is an analysis system that identifies critical points along the spine that are disturbing the function of your nervous system and causing your health problems. This analysis is gentle, safe, specific and very effective. We have had tremendous success in resolving difficult cases.

Toggle Recoil

While you are in a totally relaxed state, usually lying on your side, a high-speed, low-force thrust is delivered to the upper bones of your spine and the hands are quickly withdrawn. This allows the body to use the energy as it sees fit to “reset” the spinal joints.
