Activator Method® Chiropractic Technique is one of best low force chiropractic techniques in the world. Very few chiropractors have received the Advanced Proficiency Rating in this technique. Dr. Fife has been Advanced Proficiency Rated for 16 years and has helped thousands of patients.
Active Myofascial Release
Our Active Myofascial Release Therapy has been utilized by athletes, workers and others for years. Each treatment includes a chiropractic assessment of your area of complaint, followed by chiropractic manipulation and a series of maneuvers and pressure on the effected areas.
At Advanced Chiropractic Specialists we use our hands to evaluate (feel) the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and bones.
Suffering from back pain, neck pain, spinal problems or other joint problems, Advanced Chiropractic Specialists may use the diversified technique as part of your treatment.
The diversified technique is the most commonly used chiropractic treatment; it involves the manipulation and adjustment of the spinal column and/or arms/legs. It is called the Diversified Technique because it is a combination of the best techniques from other methods of manipulation. It involves the use of a low amplitude thrust to adjust the spine and correct any joint dysfunction, and it continues to be one of the most effective treatments for patients of all ages and health histories.
Early chiropractors noticed that subluxations would produce the appearance of a short, or contracted leg. Using a protocol of comparing leg lengths while the patient turned their head and moved their limbs, helped determine whether the subluxation was in the upper, middle or lower back.
Drop Table (Thompson Technique) What patients often notice first is our segmental “drop” table. Individual cushions or “drop pieces” located along our table surface, support each area of your spine until the thrust is delivered. Then, each drop-piece gently gives way, reducing the amount of energy needed to move a specific spinal segment. This allows the doctor to manipulate the spine with no twisting. Rarely will you hear an audible “popping” noise. This technique is especially good when you are experiencing pain that is not allowing you to roll over or twist.
At Advanced Chiropractic Specialists Dr. Brian Fife frequently uses the drop table throughout the day for excellent chiropractic care in Las Vegas.
What Advanced Chiropractic Specialists patients say about their chiropractic care, our experienced staff and professional office.
“I’m definitely a believer! My back is 100% better than the day I walked into your office. Thank you so very much!”
“Advanced Chiropractic Specialists had me back on my bicycle and racing pain free again. I had tried everything and nothing helped by back and leg pain. Dr. Fife not only stopped my back and leg pain, he had me bring my bike into his office and he took time evaluate my positioning on the bike. He made some changes to how I ride my bike and now after 2 years of not being able to ride or race bikes, I am back on the bike and posting my fastest times ever! The whole experience was great.”
