Active Release Techniques

A soft tissue treatment protocol using separate training outside of chiropractic school that compliments chiropractic care.

FAKTR-PM stands for “Functional And Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation, Provocation and Motion.” It was developed to help speed recovery from chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes and has also been shown to work extremely well to treat acute musculoskeletal/fascial conditions.

FAKTR-PM involves the combination of several different forms of therapy. Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) is used to locate and remove myofascial adhesions or restrictions. This is combined with rehabilitation exercises to strengthen the tissues while restrictions are being removed. FAKTR-PM also allows the patient to be treated in a position of provocation. This means that the patient is treated in a position that causes symptoms like pain, tightness, or stiffness. By treating patients in a position of provocation, the provider is able to locate and treat the problem that is causing the symptoms.


One-To-Zero (OTZ) Health Education Systems trains licensed chiropractors in the OTZ Method’s “top-down analysis” which involves specific correction of the occipital-atlanto subluxation and then moves down sequentially through the spine. Emphasis is also placed on anterior cervical adjusting and also the difficult cervicothorasic junction (C7-T4). In OTZ land we call the cervicothorasic area “the vault” because it can be difficult to adjust. The occipital-atlanto subluxation pattern, known as the Hatcher-Murphy Subluxation, is explored in great detail. Resolution of this subluxation can have profound effects on brainstem nuclei, especially cranial nerve 11 which is involved in Frozen Shoulder Syndrome and cranial nerve 10 which, through the poly vagal response, can have profound effects on children with developmental delays. Chiropractic functional neurology is discussed during the seminars to explain how this method of analysis and treatment can affect conditions such as Frozen Shoulder Syndrome, Migraine Headache, Vertigo, Insomnia, Bell’s palsy, Autism, ADHD, posture, as well as others.


Effectively Treating Acute and Chronic Injuries

Graston Technique® is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

Sports Injury Treatment

Using the combination of chiropractic and ART© allows us to analyze bio-mechanically what is "causing" the injury, which helps us provide precise treatment to help the athlete heal.

Sports Enhancement

Using extensive background in body bio-mechanics allows us to keep the athletes body functioning at an optimum level, adding special exercises and stretches to complement.
