Spinal manipulation, is the most common treatment used in chiropractic care. Chiropractors perform over 90% of all manipulative treatments. Spinal manipulation is a maneuver where the hands are used to manipulate, massage, mobilize, adjust, stimulate, apply traction to, or otherwise influence the spine and related tissues. Many procedures are used by chiropractors for treating the spine, other joints and tissues, and general health issues.

When you see Doctor Buchanan for the first time, you will be asked for a general medical history, and you will be asked to complete a questionnaire about the type of back pain that you are having. Typically, a hands-on examination will be performed, that involves moving your neck and limbs around to determine your limitations. Sometimes Doctor Buchanan will take x-rays of your back to determine which vertebrae are misaligned. The final treatment phase of a visit is based on manipulation of the spine in an attempt to correct spinal misalignments.

Doctor Buchanan also uses the microprocessor-controlled Sonicator Plus 994 which is a four channel combination unit. It combines 1 and 3 MHz ultrasound with six treatment waveforms: Interferential, Premodulated, Medium Frequency, Biphasic, High Volt and Microcurrent. A dual frequency 5 cm2 applicator comes standard with the unit. Up to five different treatment protocols may be set-up simultaneously using different timers.

The Stability Ball has become a very popular tool within the clinical rehab setting. Their versatility allows their use with any population. Recently, Stability Balls have become popular outside the rehab settings. Their effectiveness in developing balance and core strength has earned them a spot in the world of athletic and functional conditioning. Various strength and conditioning experts have designed a multitude of exercises covering the entire body.
