At Roybal Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Spokane office.
Chiropractic Care : We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Mario Roybal has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
During your first visit, the doctor will ask you if you have ever been under chiropractic care before and if you have any preferences in the type of adjustment you receive. We offer everything from the lowest force adjustment such as The Activator to the higher force adjustments like Gonstead and Diversified.
The Activator: This is a small hand held instrument that acts like a small mallet. The activator delivers a very specific tap to the area needing an adjustment. This technique is ideal for patients who do not like the twisting, turning and "cracking" associated with other techniques. Activator is also ideal for small children and the elderly as it is a very low force, gentle technique.
Thompson Drop: This technique again allows for a patient to lie face down on a chiropractic table. As the doctor pushes on an area of the body needing to be adjusted, part of the table supporting that part of the body will drop about ½ inch. Many patients like this technique because there is not any twisting or turning involved.
Gonstead and Diversified: These are the standard techniques that most chiropractors use. Some Doctors use much more force and twist than others. These techniques can still be performed very gently and usually are still very painless. However, these techniques do require moving the patient into different positions and may require twisting or turning.
Flexion-Distraction: This technique is designed for people with low back injuries. It is exactly as its name says a flexion and traction technique. With this technique, the Doctor can help the body nourish (maintain) and heal (to a certain extent) it's own discs. This technique has been known to save many chiropractic patients from surgery.
