Chiropractic Care

What Is it?

At Apponaug Chiropractic Center, chiropractic care focuses on the correction of spinal misalignment or subluxations, which can cause pinched irritation of the nerve. If these subluxations become longstanding, pain and dysfunction can result. Dr. Christopher Caliri and Dr. Robert Edwards help to correct those misalignments and subluxations to help with pain and get the body into proper alignment and better function.

Conditions That Chiropractic Can Help

It is remarkable that a natural form of health care such as chiropractic can help with a range of conditions and needs. These include

  • Back pain
  • Prenatal/Pregnancy Care
  • Earaches
  • Pediatric Care
  • Headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Athletic/Sports and Accident injuries
  • Family Wellness

How Often Does Dr. Christopher Caliri Need to See Me?

Care is highly individualized based on a patient’s particular needs and condition. Your chiropractor will explain what he has found and recommend the best course of treatment to resolve your issue. In general, patients will come in more frequently early on until their condition stabilizes or gets to a corrective point. The goal is then to ultimately get them on the path to wellness care.

Our Techniques

  • Thompson Drop Table: The Thompson Technique is a system of analysis and method of adjusting the full spine using a special table to assist. It produces precise, comfortable adjustments.
  • Diversified: Once misalignments of vertebrae have been identified, a manual thrust is administered at a precise direction, speed, depth and angle to correct the issue.
  • Gonstead: Gonstead is known as one of the safest systems of evaluating and caring for the spine. Using a small heat-sensing instrument is used to detect slight differences in temperature, revealing areas of misalignment. Then comfortable and precise adjustments can be made to the pelvis, lower, middle or upper back as needed.
  • Activator Methods®: The Activator Methods® uses a handheld spring-loaded instrument to delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust. It’s the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world.
  • Pettibon: The Pettibon analytical approach to chiropractic care can guide and then accurately evaluate how your body is adapting to adjustments.
  • Trigger Point Therapy: Trigger Point Therapy focuses on manipulation of trigger points to help reduce pain in hypersensitive muscle tissue, beginning with application of gentle pressure to the surface of the skin.
