Dr. Anderson is a chiropractor, so he has been trained on the techniques and benefits of manual adjusting. In school he was trained to detect subluxations (misalignments in the spine) and adjust (“crack”) the spine.
Dr. Anderson has training in Diversified, Gonstead, Thompson, Motion Palpation, S.O.T. (sacro-occipital technique), Applied Kinesiology and Activator techniques, he has additionally taken many other post-graduate seminars. Whenever treating a spinal subluxation or misalignment he first asks if it is a symptom or a root cause of the disorder. By utilizing his additional training he focuses on getting to the root of what caused the subluxation and fixes that. For most cases, this may mean a chiropractic adjustment is not indicated, although at times it is necessary.
To help you, Dr. Anderson looks at your medical history, lab tests, physical exam findings, neurological exam findings, and other criteria. He uses specific neurological muscle tests to help him understand what is going on with you, and how to treat the problem most effectively. Muscle testing, when used appropriately and by a qualified, skilled physician, is a powerful tool that aids in individualized, specific treatment.
