Our office has a positive and upbeat ambience. The open environment is conducive to learning, healing support, and prompt service. We believe we are set apart from the medical model and most of our chiropractic colleagues for the five following reasons:
We align with the most current scientific understanding (see our philosophy on the About Us page for more details).
Our primary concern is releasing your pain and enhancing your quality of life, through the freeing of stress-induced blockages of energy and information. We discover and correct the underlying nervous system disturbance, which sets the stage for pain, illness, and sub optimal performance. This intent helps us to provide a true solution versus a symptom mask, often sparing your body possible drug side effects.
We utilize state-of-the-art computer diagnostic assessments to verify the presence of nervous system interference and to guide us in the corrective process. This has truly been the missing link. This involves both SEMG (Surface Electromyography) and Thermography. They are powerful clinical tools, which have more commonly been used for academic research purposes.
In fact, SEMG originated with NASA as a means of gauging astronaut responses to stressful environmental demands. This is invaluable information for all people, especially those with pain and illness, to measure the extent of injury and stress interference with nervous system function.
This technology is very accurate, scientifically sound, safe, and remarkably affordable. We combine this with precise biomechanical x-rays specific enough to clarify the spinal source of your problem. In this way we marry the evaluation of structural and functional health, which is extremely rare in chiropractic and all of health care.
These scientific evaluations finally answer the questions and concern about the extent of patient problem, level of improvement as care proceeds, appropriate frequency of adjustments and how long an individual can benefit from further care. All recommendations and determinations of progress are based upon objective measures, rather than feelings that can be very misleading, just like with dental cavities, heart disease and cancer.
We provide a true 21st century approach to spinal adjusting which is a hybrid blend of Torque Release Technique (TRT) involving the unique Integrator instrument and Activator Methods. Rather than forcing the spine, the focus is upon resetting the disrupted nervous system. Unlike other methods, TRT and the Integrator were developed directly from scientific research.
The study related TRT chiropractic care with enhanced state of well-being. It was conducted in a large in-patient addiction hospital in Florida and demonstrated powerful reductions in anxiety and depression believed to be due to enhanced neurochemistry secondary to spinal correction. The results were so impressive the study was published in two prestigious science journals, Nature, as well as the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs.
This method is gentle, very precise, and corrects imbalances from head to toe. We are extremely rare in all of Central California in providing this powerful, quality of life enhancing service. This system of analysis is unique in providing changing adjustments specific for each day so that your progress doesn’t plateau. We provide correction rather than a band-aid and we prove it.
We have developed a staff and office environment that is open, caring and friendly. We are dedicated to imparting knowledge that empowers you and invites your participation in your healing process. Drs. Norton and Glennon together have over 30 years of experience in providing the highest quality patient care based upon cutting edge research. It is their passionate pursuit to help as many people as possible to fully express their body, mind, and spirit potential.
