Our Technique in Andover

Advanced Muscle Palpation

The most common compliment we receive on our chiropractic adjusting technique in Andover is how gentle it is. The secret is in the analysis. At Essentials of Life Chiropractic we use a very unique style of spinal analysis called Advanced Muscle Palpation (AMP).

The theory behind AMP is simple and based on sound chiropractic principles. The body is amazingly intelligent. It absolutely knows where each spinal misalignment (subluxation) is at all times. The body will attempt to use its own machinery, i.e. the tiny paraspinal muscles, to correct the subluxations. Sometimes it can. Sometimes it cannot…and the subluxation remains. Chiropractors trained in AMP can recognize patterns in those paraspinal muscles, and thus adjust the body specifically where it needs to be adjusted.

The reason our adjustments are so gentle and smooth is because they work with the body rather than trying to overpower it.

Extremity Adjusting in Andover

The purpose of chiropractic care is the detection and correction of subluxation for the optimization of the nervous system. The vast majority of the time this occurs at the level of the spine. However, this does occasionally occur in extremity joints such as the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot.

Webster Technique

Helping women have a wonderful pregnancy and delivery is one of our greatest joys at Essentials of Life Chiropractic. While pregnancy is an amazing journey, it often adds extra stess to the spine and pelvis. This can lead to uterine tension, which can cause restrictions in baby's position, movement, and development.

The Webster technique is a chiropractic method of evaluating the alignment and mobility of mom's pelvis. Gentle chiropractic adjustments can used to correct the misalignments and facilitate normal function for both mom and baby. This technique has helped so many women achieve a healthy pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
