A chiropractic adjustment is a very gentle and specific procedure to take pressure off of the nerve and associated tissues to allow the body to start healing itself. Dr. Tom’s philosophy on health is the human body is capable of healing itself of any injury or illness as long as it is given the things it needs to survive.
Why get adjusted? So you feel better to be able to run, jump, play with your children/grandchildren, or get back to enjoying everything else you used to and so much more!

Dr. Tom works hand in hand with other providers and physicians to ensure each patient receives the best possible care and treatments available.
Specific prone – This is a gentle hands-on technique that is pleasant and comfortable to the patient. There is no uncomfortable twisting. This approach moves only the vertabrae that need to be moved, not all the vertabrae in the spinal region. This revolutionary technique is the latest in the industry and is very popular among patients.
Gonstead – extremely specific manual technique that focuses on foundational unleveling, intervertebral misalignment, motion disturbances and nerve dysfunction. This approach moves only the vertabrae that need to be moved, not all the vertabrae in the spinal region.
Diversified – Most commonly used manual adjustment technique by chiropractors. Objective is to restore proper movement and alignment of spine and joint dysfunction.
Dr. Tom has been trained in many chiropractic techniques. The techniques that he has found to get the best results are Specific prone and Gonstead.
