Chiropractic care is about more than relieving pain — it is about restoring your health and improving function in every part of your body. More than 99% of the nerves passing through your spine have nothing to do with pain sensation. Instead, they transmit messages between your brain and organs, glands, and muscles so they can function properly. When one of your vertebrae is out of alignment, it can cause interference to your nerves, which reduces function.
Chiropractic adjustments return the vertebrae to their proper alignment, thus reducing nerve pressure and allows the body to heal — and return to a normal state of health. In addition to a healthy diet and exercise, regular chiropractic visits can help you lead a healthier life.

Thompson Drop Table
The Thompson Drop Table is our main treatment method. This type of method utilizes a drop table with several segments, call drop pieces. During treatment, Dr. Burgess will apply a gentle thrust to the joints, which targets a specific tissue or joint and sets a drop piece in motion. These drop pieces help minimize the force used for manipulations and adjustments, which assists the thrust. Compared to a manual adjustment, this is a lighter approach and typically does not elicit any noise
Activator Methods® Technique
Dr. Burgess has completed courses to properly administer this treatment modality. It uses a handheld instrument called the Activator to provide low-force, gentle chiropractic adjustments. By using the Activator Method, we are able to administer more precise adjustments, and address spinal joint dysfunctions. It allows Dr. Burgess to effectively zero in on the area of the body causing your problems and then work to remedy the situation.
Diversified Technique Adjustments
This type of chiropractic adjustment is probably the most familiar to patients — it is the most commonly used chiropractic technique. It involves a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust delivered by hand. This usually results in a popping noise as the joint is cavitated or put back into place. The Diversified Technique can be used to treat many of the joints in the body and helps to restore normal joint and neurological function.
