Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.


Lightforce is a low force adjusting technique that uses specific contacts on the spine and extremities (arms, legs, knees, jaw etc.) to gently but effectively realign the spine without the twisting and popping associated with traditional chiropractic adjustments. Lightforce is great for everyone from a newborn with reflux to a 100 year old with a hangnail. The most powerful thing involved with the chiropractic adjustment is the body’s inborn innate potential to heal itself and bring itself back to homeostasis and ultimately health and wellbeing.
