Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic adjustment by Dr. ThackerDid you know that, by correcting a subluxation, the nervous system can function at its optimum and the body can heal itself? “As chiropractors, we not only look at the spine, but we take a holistic approach by looking at your whole body,” says Dr. Thacker.

Locating the Source of the Problem

We look to find subluxations (a bone that’s not moving the way it’s supposed to) that are potentially creating a problem. If you’re expressing a symptom, then we look to find what is the subluxation that could be creating those symptoms. We also see if there are any other subluxations in your spine, and we correct those through hands-on adjustments of your spine.

Some Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Often we have patients who report relief of other issues, maybe seasonal allergies or some complaint that they didn’t come in for. Chiropractic also can boost the immune system, enhance sleep, improve posture, and of course, relieve pain.

Our Techniques

Here are the primary techniques that Dr. Thacker uses at Whole Life Chiropractic:

  • Diversified : This technique uses a specific manual thrust to free up “stuck” spinal joints.
  • Drop Table : This unique technique uses an adjusting table that features segmented drops that lower different parts of a patient’s spine quickly. The advantage of the quick drops is that Dr. Thacker can use minimal force while thrusting on your spine at a powerful speed.
  • Gonstead : With this specific full-spine approach to adjusting, X-rays are taken, and we use a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results.
  • Webster : The Webster Technique is designed to set the woman’s body up to be optimal, so the baby has the ideal environment to grow and thrive and develop its nervous system.

Helping Patients Feel Comfortable

Caring and compassionate, Dr. Thacker quickly gains the trust of his patients. He will communicate to them that he always will start out using a gentle approach. “When we have to start to get things moving, I will be upfront and honest with them, letting them know they likely are going to get a little sore.” He equates it to soreness that you may feel after a new workout—it’s never extreme pain.
