Trailhead Chiropratic

Our Approach

We are a modern chiropractic clinic with a rehab and fitness training focus. Dr. Spangler uses chiropractic adjustments only if other less aggressive therapies fail to restore appropriate movement and provide pain relief. This approach assures the appropriate tissues causing the pain and dysfunction are addressed and the patient’s needs are always put first. We emphasize increasing fitness as a rehabilitation and preventive tool.

We do movement assessments aimed at creating a baseline for isolated areas of dysfunctional range of motion. This assessment is performed before and after therapy to assure the therapy is, in fact, restoring normal range of motion. We offer kinesiology taping procedures used to enhance awareness to an area and create drainage to reduce swelling. We use instrument assisted soft tissue therapy and pin & stretch procedures designed to reduce myofascial adhesions that restrict range of motion and cause pain.

We also use a therapeutic laser that stimulates the injury or problem area to heal faster. By replacing the use of other modalities such as: ultrasound and electric stimulation with the laser, we can decrease the treatment time from 15-20 minutes to 1-2 minutes. This allows us to do more work utilizing, soft tissue therapy, stretching and rehab exercises.
