Healing Techniques

Tapper Chiropractic Clinic practices a variety of chiropractic and other safe, noninvasive, and effective techniques designed to tap into your body’s natural healing abilities. Feel free to read more about Chiropractic Care and read our Frequently Asked Questions.

Diversified Technique

The most common and familiar of chiropractic techniques, diversified manipulation, begins with a thorough assessment of the spine to identify areas of malposition. Once diagnosed, the patient is treated with a series of gentle thrusts by hand to adjust their spinal and musculoskeletal systems. While improving the spinal system can reduce nervous system interference, virtually all joints of the body can be adjusted to restore proper range of motion. Although joints may produce a slight “popping” sound during the process, they do not indicate the treatment’s effectiveness.

Activator Method

This handheld instrument delivers adjustments with consistent, precise, low-force thrusts. The body rarely tightens to resist the activator, making adjustments comfortable and more effective. The Activator Method is of good use in adjusting elbows, wrists, knees and other joints of the body.

Upper Cervical Technique

The upper cervical technique corrects head and neck misalignment to restore body balance and reactivate brain communication to areas affected by misalignment. The correction relaxes muscles, improves circulation and strengthens the immune system. Regular upper cervical technique therapy bolsters the body’s natural self-healing process.

Orthotics

Your feet are a part of an interconnected system of specialized bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Even if your feet don’t hurt, their contribution to your posture may affect other areas of your body. Ask us how custom-made orthotics may bring you long-term relief if you are experiencing pain or discomfort.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy is a thermal treatment that relieves some types of acute and chronic pain. Sound waves cause muscle tissues to vibrate, heating and moving surrounding structures. These thermal effects break down scar tissue and stretch tendons and can treat many other conditions, including arthritis. Ultrasound therapy may be accompanied by electrical stimulation of the muscle.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical muscle stimulation, or EMS, prevents and reduces muscle atrophy. EMS also mitigates muscle pain and improves circulation, increasing strength, endurance and range of motion. It is performed by sending light electrical current through self-adhesive electrodes placed over the muscle.

Detox

We absorb a variety of toxins from the air we breathe, food we eat and water we drink. No matter how healthy our lifestyle, it is very difficult to avoid environmental pollutants. Because feet have more pores than anywhere else in your body, Tapper Chiropractic Clinic offers relaxing ionic detoxifying foot baths that remove unhealthy toxins and other impurities from your system.

Tapper Chiropractic Clinic offers care for patients during all stages of their recovery.

The corrective care phase focuses on restoring, healing and preventing symptoms from returning. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, you may be given certain exercises to perform at the clinic or at home to accelerate your healing process.

The relief care phase addresses any pain you may be experiencing and any concerns you may have. You may need to visit the office two or three times per week during this initial phase for concentrated treatments to reduce or eliminate your symptoms.

The wellness care phase entails routine maintenance visits or check-ups. Routine chiropractic checkups are a good way to help with spinal alignment and ensure health. The wellness care phase keeps you healthier and feeling better.

At Tapper Chiropractic Clinic, our philosophy is simple: health is your most valuable possession. Contact our office today to discover your healthiest self.

I had abdominal surgery about a year ago and after my surgery, my lower back began bothering me. My lower back pain progressively got worse to the point that I couldn’t sleep at night. I can hardly believe how much better I feel since receiving chiropractic care in Dr. Tapper’s office. —LM

I have smoked two packs of cigarettes a day for 30 years. I came to Dr. Tapper for hypnosis to see if he could help me quit smoking. I walked out of his office and I have not had a cigarette since that day. It has been 20 years now since he hypnotized me to stop smoking. I have referred several of my friends and family members to Dr. Tapper to quit smoking and every one of them quit after seeing Dr. Tapper. Thanks…you saved my life and thousands of dollars. —WS

I had a lung removed two years ago and since this operation I have been suffering with constant pain in my chest and right rib cage. I have had CT scans, MRI scans, x-rays, injections, pain pills, evaluated and treated by numerous physicians with no relief. I was referred to Dr. Tapper by a friend. After the first treatment, I have finally gotten relief. I am amazed—to say the least. I drive at least 2 hours one way to see Dr. Tapper, but it is well worth the drive. Dr. Tapper found out exactly what was causing my chest and rib pain and he was able to fix it. —BT

My 3 year old son has had recurrent ear infections and hearing loss since he was a one year old. My mother told me to let Dr. Tapper check my son and see what he could do. After a short time, my son’s recurrent ear infections stopped. His hearing improved and after 6 months now, his speech has improved. Since he has had a hearing loss for the past 2 years, his speech has been impaired. Thanks to Dr. Tapper, my son in normal now. I never realized chiropractic is for kids, too! —ST

I have suffered with rheumatoid arthritis and chronic fatigue for years. My hands and the joints in my body become so stiff and painful that I can barely move or pick up a cup of coffee or open a jar. I have no energy to do my daily activities. I am so tired that I have to go to bed at 7:30 at night. Dr. Tapper suggested that I try an ionic foot bath detox for my condition. I feel better than I have felt in the last ten years. My hands and all of my joints feel so much better. Swelling in my hands went away and I can grasp items better with no pain. I can't believe the energy that I have! My friends and family are amazed. I plan on getting a detox on a regular basis. It is truly a miracle. —GL

I have gone to chiropractors for years and years. My grandmother told me about Dr. Tapper. After Dr. Tapper’s treatment, I immediately felt a warm sensation down both arms. I have never felt anything like this in all the years I have gone to other chiropractors. My headaches went away and my arms and hands felt so good. I have a right wrist that I broke about 5 years ago and I have to wear a brace all the time. I can’t bend my wrist very much and it is very painful. Dr. Tapper checked my wrist and he treated it with an instrument and I couldn’t believe the difference he made. I don’t need the brace and I could even do a push-up with no wrist pain! I am recommending Dr. Tapper to all of my friends! —SG
