Our Services & 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:

Chiropractic adjusting image

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

Diversified

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»

Gonstead

This full spine approach relies on X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results. read more»

Active Release®

The Active Release® Technique (ART) has become one of them most sought after soft-tissue treatments in the world today. ART is often your best bet in revolving a chronic soft tissue injury. read more»

Functional Rehabilitation

Functional Rehabilitation incorporates clinical lifestyle recommendations, manual treatments and functional exercise regimes to help patients regain normal function of their spine and limbs, allowing patients to return to their regular lifestyles.

The patient is empowered to achieve faster results and quicker recovery time

Dr. Silbert has trained extensively in functional rehabilitation. He has successfully completed a three year post doctorate education in rehabilitation. He is currently pursuing his rehab Diplomate. Over the past two years he has had additional training with Eastern Europe’s top leaders in the medical profession in manual medicine and functional rehabilitation.

Pilates

Pilates is an amazing tool for correct postural awareness. Contrology is defined as the science and art of coordinated body-mind-spirit development through natural movements under strict control of the will. As Joe Pilates maintained, Contrology develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit. Pilates requires an individual to be responsible for their whole body through movement.

Activator Methods®

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

SOT

Sacro Occipital Technique helps normalize the relationship between the pelvis and the head, using gravity to make the necessary correction. read more»

Dynamic Neural Stabilization

Dynamic Neural Stabilization is a method created and performed in Eastern Europe by Czech neurologist J. Vojta and further developed by Dr. Pavel Kolar, Director of the Rehabilitation Department at the hospital Motol in Prague. The technique is used on patients with a wide variety of problems in the locomotor system, ranging from chronic low back pain to stroke patients.

Dynamic Neural Stabilization promotes reflex activities of the abdominal wall, deep back extensors, diaphragm and pelvic floor. All of which is important for the chronic pain patient, athlete or repetitive type work.

Biomechanics

Clinical biomechanics of posture can be best characterized as full spine and pelvic corrective/rehabilitative procedure which foundation is in the sciences of biomechanics and physics.

Cox Flexion-Distraction

We use a special table so we can traction your spine, opening up the spacing between spinal vertebrae and relieving pressure to spinal. read more»

AK Applied Kinesiology

Testing the strength of specific muscles of your body helps us find structural, chemical and mental problems and monitor your results. read more»

SFMS

Selective Functional Movement Screen is an effective technique in sports medicine.

Trigger Point

By applying direct pressure or stretching of the affected muscle, we can reduce muscle spasms and flush out pooled blood and accumulated toxins. read more»

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a soft tissue system/movement based on massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder pain, sciatica, tennis elbow and shin splints are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved. These conditions all have one important thing in common; they are often a result of overused muscles.

Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It is also used for Preventive Maintenance, Edema, and to treat pain.read more»

Kinesio Taping is a technique based on the body’s own natural healing process. This Kinesio Taping exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically stems from the science of Kinesiology, hence “Kinesio”. Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, ect. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms.

Consequently, so much attention was given to the importance of muscle function that the idea of treating the muscles in order to activate the body’s own healing process came about. Using an elastic tape, it was discovered that muscles and other tissues could be helped by outside assistance. Employment of Kinesio Taping creates a totally new approach to treating nerves, muscles, and organs. The first application of Kinesio Taping was for a patient with articular disorders.

For the first 10 years, orthopedists, chiropractors, acupuncturists and other medical practitioners were the main users of Kinesio Taping. Soon thereafter, Kinesio Taping was used by the Japanese Olympic volleyball players and word quickly spread to other athletes. Today, Kinesio Taping is used by medical practitioners and athletes around the world.

The Kinesio Taping Method is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused tired muscles, and to support muscles in movement on a 24hr/day basis. It is non-restrictive type of taping which allows for full range of motion.

In contrast, traditional sports’ taping is wrapped around the joint strictly for stabilization and support during a sporting event obstructing the flow of bodily fluids as an UNDESIRABLE side-effect.

Kinesio Tape is used for anything from headaches to foot problems and everything in between. Examples include: muscular facilitation or inhibition in pediatric patients, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain (subluxations, herniated disc), knee conditions, shoulder conditions, hamstring, groin injury, rotator cuff injury, whiplash, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, patella tracking, pre and post surgical edema, ankle sprains, athletic preventative injury method, and as a support method.

Yoga

Yoga is a neutral system of techniques utilizing the breath, mental focus and physical movements and postures to create an experience designed to increase awareness and remove restrictions or contractions in the fluidity of the nervous system.
