Dr. Beth Cooper and her staff use several techniques to area patients suffering from many types of maladies, some of which are:

  • Full Spine/Hands On Adjusting - a non-specific adjustment of the entire spine
  • Webster Technique - a specific adjusting and spinal analysis that balances a woman's sacrum/pelvis to ensure an easier pregnancy, childbirth/labor experience
  • Activator Methods - a low force adjusting tool that specifically corrects nerve interference in the spine and extremities
  • Cold Laser - a treatment that uses precise wavelengths of light to communicate with tissue and is believed to help accelerate the healing process
  • Hydro-bed Therapy - a massage bed that uses pressurized warm water to increase circulation
  • Kinesiotaping - a specific rehabilitative taping technique that is intended to aid the body’s natural healing process while supporting and stabilizing muscles and joints without limiting the body’s range of motion, as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to extend the benefits of manual therapy given within the clinical setting

A specific form of spinal adjustment used by Dr. Beth is subluxation.  The term "subluxation" is used by doctors of chiropractic to depict the altered position of the vertebra and subsequent functional loss, which determines the location for the spinal manipulation. "Subluxation" has been defined medically as "...a partial abnormal separation of the articular surfaces of a joint." 

When a subluxation occurs it causes nerve interference in some portion of the body affected by those nerves. The subluxation causes changes to the structure as well as the nerves. These changes get progressively worse as time is allowed to work on the subluxated area of the spine. These changes take the form of ongoing degeneration known as "subluxation degeneration".   For this reason early care is vital in stopping and preventing the advancement of subluxation degeneration.
