Comprehensive Full Spine Care
Dr. Sheffield provides comprehensive full spine care using a blend of what she believes are the most effective techniques she’s found in the chiropractic world. (This is different than atlas or C1 work.)
Her focus is utilizing precise, low force, specific spinal adjustments and avoiding all rotational, or “old school” techniques that can stress the body unnecessarily.
The following full spine (C2 to sacrum) techniques and adjusting devices are utilized based on each patient:
Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT)
Active Release Technique (ART)
Chiropractic Bio Physics (CBP)
Flexion Distraction Table for lumbar discs
The full spine techniques used for each patient, vary based on their age, spinal state, spinal curves, and other findings from the comprehensive spinal exam and imaging ordered. All patients are evaluated before being adjusted.
Atlas (C1) adjustments use different techniques than those stated above for full spine. For more information please see this info: Upper Cervical Adjustments
