Dr. Garner’s Chiropractic technique of choice is referred to as Diversified. This technique is the traditional “hands-on” form of treatment that involves adjusting the joints of the spine and extremities. If you prefer not to be adjusted, or Dr. Garner determines that adjustments are not recommended for you, you may receive soft tissue therapy (a form of massage) or mobilizations. Mobilizations are gentle movements similar to an adjustment, but with less force and depth. The motion is repeated several times in a rhythmic pattern to produce an effect equal to that of an adjustment.
Many people believe that once Chiropractic care is started, it must be continued for life. This is the oldest and most untrue myth about Chiropractic. If your Chiropractor suggests an extended course of frequent visits with no valid reason, you may wish to seek a second opinion.
