Did you know that there are many ways to adjust the spine? At Touch of Health we pride ourselves on offering multiple treatment approaches to suit every individual, because we truly believe that a cookie-cutter approach just doesn't work. We specialize in customizing a specific health plan targeted at your concerns, complaints, and goals, because we believe each patient is truly different in every way.
Whether it is related to age, injury, or preference, some patients may benefit more from gentle, instrument-assisted adjustments rather than the traditional hands-on approach. For these people, we utilize the Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique®. This technique is just as effective as other traditional adjusting methods, but allows us to treat a larger scope of patients.
Our office also comes equipped with a Flexion Distraction Table. This table allows us to offer another effective instrument-assisted technique specifically aimed at relieving sciatic-type complaints. It also helps manage a wide array of complications related to your lower back and lumbar discs.

Pediatric & Prenatal
We LOVE moms and babies at Touch of Health, and we specialize in helping them achieve optimum health and well-being. Dr. Katrina & Dr. Nick are members of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, Certified in Webster Technique and specialize in caring for infants, children, and women before, during, and after pregnancy.
CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR INFANTS
Chiropractic care is a great way to promote health and manage many ailments in infants and children. The birth process alone places a great deal of stress on an infant's nerves and joints. This can lead to symptoms of reflux, colic, and nursing struggles. A chiropractic evaluation and adjustment by a chiropractor who specializes in pediatric care can have a profound impact on the health and functioning of infants.
Chiropractic care for infants is drastically different than the approach used on adults. There is no bending, popping, or twisting involved, and the treatment more closely resembles massage or acupressure. Most babies sleep through their adjustment and their parents report improved mood, nursing patterns, and sleep afterwards.
CHIROPRACTIC FOR KIDS
When children are under regular chiropractic they can see many health benefits:
• Improved immune system function
• Reduced risk of ear infections
• Reduced symptoms of digestive disorders - colic, constipation, reflux
• Maintained overall wellness
• Faster recovery from sports injuries
• Better sleep, mood, and behavior
Chiropractic care for children often looks a bit different than adult care. We take a gentle, on-the-go approach for young ones. Sometimes that looks like doing their adjustment on the play mat, or laying with mom on the chiropractic table. We want kids to feel safe and secure, so we let them lead. Because they are younger and haven't been living with their spinal problems for years like most adults, they respond so much more quickly to care. We often see improvements with kids during their first few adjustments.
CHIROPRACTIC DURING PREGNANCY
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can offer many benefits to the mom-to-be. It has been shown to help:
• Maintain a healthier pregnancy
• Provide greater comfort throughout pregnancy
• Control symptoms of nausea
• Reduces the time of labor and delivery
• Relieves back, neck, or joint pain
• Encourages optimal fetal positioning through proper pelvic alignment
Dr. Katrina & Dr. Nick utilize Webster's Technique during pregnancy care, which can relieve ligament tension encouraging optimal position of the baby
