We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing “state of the art” chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists.
These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable, and more effective than ever before. Our doctors are trained and experienced in spinal adjusting.
Trigenics is a neuro-kinetic, sensorimotor assessment, treatment and training system which instantly relieves pain and increases strength and movement. The complex procedures used in Trigenics retrain the way the brain communicates its movement and/or pain signals with the muscles of the body.
This advanced technique was developed by Dr. Allan Oolo Austin in order to relieve upper and lower extremity joint/muscular pain, especially shoulder and knee pain/instability. Trigenics can also be used for neck and lower back pain as well. It is not uncommon to see drastic improvement within the first few treatments. If you are suffering from severe extremity pain, diminished range of motion, frozen shoulder, or knee instability ask one of the doctors about Trigenics today.
L.A.S.E.R. (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) is a name for a type of intense radiation of the light spectrum. A laser is a beam of light in which high energies can be concentrated.
Laser light has unique physical properties, which other types of light do not have. These are coherence and monochromaticity. These are what make laser light so effective compared to other kinds of light in the field of pain reduction and healing.
Health benefits include the following: accelerated cell reproduction and growth, faster wound healing, increased metabolic activity, reduction in fibrous tissue formation, anti-inflammatory action, as well as, increased vascular and nerve activity.
This modality is a form of electrotherapy used to strengthen and rehabilitate the peripheral nerves, decrease muscular pain, and increase nerve/muscular strength, joint stability and overall function.
When you first turn the Rebuilder on, it sets its output parameters for your physical mass by measuring the electrical analog and digital impedance of your body. It knows if it is treating a 125 lb. woman or a 350 lb. man. If you use the Rebuilder directly on your lower back, it knows that. You would obviously need a different amount of signal for variations like these. This is a unique safety feature of the Rebuilder. No other unit offers this level of safety.
The Rebuilder then sends out a “test” signal that represents the most common waveform for healthy peripheral nerves. This signal goes from one foot, up the leg to the nerve roots in your back, down the other leg, and to the other foot. If you are suffering from peripheral neuropathy (pain, weakness, and/or pins and needles in the extremities) ask about PNRT today.
Recently, a new therapy, known as Horizontal Therapy, was incorporated at Clark Chiropractic. This machine (ProElec DT 2000) has been a breakthrough in electromedicine, combining all known forms of electromedical therapy, in addition to this new revolutionary therapy. It is the most sophisticated form of electrotherapy available.
A German company, Hako-Med, engineered and manufactured this advanced unit to create a unique electrotherapy treatment concept called Horizontal Therapy. The field of electromedicine has evolved over the years and provided us with electrical muscle stimulation, TENS therapy, microcurrent, interfential therapy, and other forms. Each of these methods of electrotherapy has a particular role in treating a variety of conditions, but none of them approach the therapeutic effects which are combined in the PRO ElecDT 2000 with Horizontal Therapy.

Heat increases blood circulation and oxygen supply to damaged tissues. This speeding up of blood flow will bring specific cells to clean up damaged tissue. Infrared heat is the deepest form of heat penetration available and has an added benefit of decreasing pain, swelling, edema and muscle spasms, while increasing the ability of the tissues to heal dramatically. Using the infrared heat coupled with cold laser will enhance the benefits of the cold laser exponentially.
Non- surgical spinal decompression is used to rehabilitate disc herniation’s within the spine. When a disc herniates it will protrude backwards applying pressure to the delicate spinal cord and nerve roots. The decompression machine has a slow, intermittent, progressive pull with a vacuum effect causing a negative pressure allowing the disc to be returned to its disc space where it belongs.
The intermittent pulling gives the muscles a chance to relax allowing motion within the spine and ultimately more disc return. Compression of the spinal cord and nerve roots must be addressed or else healing will not occur. This device is most commonly used to treat the following: bulging/herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, and failed back surgeries.
This modality is also a form of electrotherapy; however, this is much more specific to an individual peripheral nerve. We can target a specific nerve and stimulate it to restore normal function. We can use this modality on cranial nerves as well to help restore brainstem function and help alleviate symptoms like headaches, dizziness, facial weakness (Bell’s palsy), facial numbness/tingling (trigeminal neuralgia), etc.
Our brains control every bodily function! By removing stress from the brain and returning it to optimal function, our body will operate at optimal function. A brain map allows a patient to know if they have a neurological dysfunction, how severe the dysfunction is, and if they would be a good candidate for our protocols to correct their brain dysfunction.
A brain map is a diagnostic procedure in which an EEG cap is placed on the patient’s head and it is connected to a computer. The EEG sensors inside the cap are able to measure and record brainwaves in five different areas of the brain. The recording are then sent off and compared to a normative database and report is created.
The report shows if there is a brainwave/neurological dysfunction, as well as, the degree of the dysfunction. If it is found that a patient has brainwaves that are not operating in the proper manner, we have a computerized, state-of-the-art training program which enables us to train the brain waves back to their optimal level. This training is called NeuroFeedback. This type of therapy is used for many different conditions/symptoms with the most common being anxiety, depression, insomnia, ADD/ADHD, memory loss, and autistic spectrum disorder.
On your initial visit a complete functional neurologic examination will be performed to assess general and specific neurologic function, symmetry and balance. If any neurologic deficits or imbalances are encountered, then specific brain based rehabilitation will be required to reverse and improve these areas to ensure speedy and long lasting results. Therapies may include the following: postural and range of motion exercises for improved spinal alignment and mobility, vibration plate and weighted vest for increased proprioceptive input, photic stimulation with colored glasses, caloric therapy for vestibular/balance problem, non-linear complex movements for cerebellar activation, Metronome sound therapy, etc.
Our Knee and Shoulder Recovery Program is designed to help those suffering with various causes of knee and shoulder pain, including adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder, post-surgical cases, ligamentous and muscular tears (rotator cuff, MCL, LCL, meniscus), etc. Our patients have experienced decreased pain, increased movement, and better quality of life with this program.
This program couples multiple modalities including Trigenics technique along with cold laser, infrared heat and possibly rebuilder electrotherapy to help rehabilitate these areas quickly. A complete examination must be performed first to determine the cause and cofactors of the knee and shoulder pain to ensure a favorable outcome.
We teach our patient’s special “blueprint” exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique health issue. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Our doctors have been extensively trained in functional blood analysis. This is done by taking a very thorough approach to interpreting your labs. The doctors will take a look at any existing labs you may have (within 6 months of collection) and determine if more testing is needed in order to provide you with a more in-depth look into why you still are experiencing symptoms even though your lab test appear normal.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients’ return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Our doctors provide a structured metabolic program based on your individual needs.
We often find it helpful to “coach” our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
Our goal is to provide information to those who are unaware of what can be done to regain their health with a drug-free, natural approach. There are so many that are suffering from chronic conditions and have tried many different approaches but are still suffering with the same symptoms. We offer complimentary educational seminars to explain our approach in supporting these types of conditions.
We hold monthly seminars in our office in an effort to give back to our community and help those who have lost hope of ever regaining their health. We have seminars available to businesses, churches, schools, and other various organizations focused on improving the health and well-being of employees/members. Call our office today to schedule your seminar.
