Chiropractic Care

Spine modelSafe, natural and effective, chiropractic care helps to return the body to its highest and best state without the risk associated with many medications. “My goal is to help whatever’s in the way get out of the way so the body can heal itself,” says Dr. Abernathy, who is a self-described finesse adjuster, not a power adjuster.

Patients likely come in, not because they see a problem, but because they feel the pain. First, we tackle the pain, and then we concentrate on the underlying cause of the pain. Lastly, we will teach exercises that can be done at home to stabilize the area.

Our Techniques

A highly clinical and competent adjuster, Dr. Abernathy is skilled in an array of chiropractic techniques. He will use whatever method that you respond to.

  • Activator Methods® : Dr. Abernathy is certified in this technique that uses an instrument to deliver a consistent, low-force thrust.
  • Diversified : This technique uses a manual thrust to free up stuck spinal joints.
  • Extremities :With this type of adjusting, wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees and other joints of the body can be addressed.
  • Gonstead : This full spine approach uses X-rays for a thorough evaluation and documented results.
  • Thompson : A special table is used in this technique to reduce the amount of energy needed to adjust the spine.
  • Decompression : A specially-equipped table will ever-so-slowly stretch your spine. And then relax it. Stretch. And relax. Excellent for disc cases.
