This technique is a specific analysis and diversified adjustment to the sacrum of a pregnant woman to allow the nerves that control the uterus to communicate freely as well as releasing restrictions in the pelvis allowing for more comfort and movement to both the mom and the unborn baby.

Sometimes a patient responds better to different styles of adjusting. When this happens, Dr. Shaw can reach into his toolbox of training he has received and adjust using a different techniques as needed to help the patient continue to improve.
Thompson Technique "To truly believe, we must first understand"
Thompson- Thompson Technique uses special tables with drop pieces that uses gravity to assist in the adjustment. Another favorite for those nervous about being adjusted manually.To learn more about the Power of the Adjustment where the practical neurology behind the VSC and how it relates to a patient's global health and well being is explained, please go to www.minardieducation.com
Diversified-This is the most common technique that most chiropractic physicians use to manually move the misalignments (subluxations) using only the hands.
B.E.S.T.- The Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique is an energy based technique that balances the body's energy and emotions to help the body to be more in balance.
By softly putting the spinal column in motion while simultaneously stretching the other components that affect the spine’s health, namely the muscles and ligaments, the intersegmental traction table completes multiple different tasks all at once. The alterior muscles help the spine in terms of forming posture and proper alignment, and in working to improve the structure of the spine and the muscular complexion at the same time, chiropractors can get a lot done in one session.
We also offer active exercises to help our patients recover faster and to compliment the adjustment. Active Therapy often includes the use of bands, therapy balls, stretches, core strengthening exercises, and balance/coordination activities.
You have seen it on athletes at the Olympics and at other competitions. Kinesiotape is a special tape that does not restrict the motion of the athlete wearing it. It is a tape that “reminds” the joint and muscles how they are supposed to behave. After trying many of the different types of tape out there we have found ROCKTAPE to be the best out there. By applying the tape to specific areas of the body, your body will function better, endure longer, and recover quicker. We can tape you up in the office or we can train you and sell you this awesome tape to be able to take care of yourself.

Dr Shaw has seen the laser help many individuals with acute and chronic pain. Also helpful treating: fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, scars, edema, burns and much more.
