Our Chiropractic Techniques

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

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

Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust. read more»


After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints. read more»


Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine. read more»


Our computerized instrument will analyze and adjust your spine, tapping on each vertebra, “listening” as each one assumes a healthier disposition. read more»

As a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic I was trained in Palmer Upper Cervical Specific, Thompson, Gonstead, and Diversified Techniques. I took additional courses of study in Activator, Logan Basic, Sacro Occipital Technique, Cox Flexion Distraction and outside of school I have studied NetworkSpinal, Contact Reflex Analysis as well as soft tissue techniques based on Rolfing and Osteopathic Techniques (Craniosacral and Positional Release Technique). I blend all of the above through the use of the Arthrostim/Vibracussor instruments that give me a unique 3-D impression of structural integrity and fixations. The above techniques give me a wide range of tools that allow me to work on just about anybody, at any age, with almost any spinal condition.

Dr. Richard French know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
