Our Techniques

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting  approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our judgment and years of experience.

Drop Table

What makes the drop table so special? Its mechanism is based on the First Law of Motion by Newton that states “A body is in equilibrium if no force is acting upon it. If it is at rest, it remains so; if in motion, it persists in motion, unless an opposing force is met.” This law was the catalyst for a safer, low-force, high-velocity adjustment

The "Segmental Drop System" takes advantage of the spine's inherent design of the joints in order to move the spinal segment in the direction that will improve the motion of the segment with the one above and below. It just makes good sense. The majority of the spinal adjusting utilizing the Thompson Technique has the patient lying prone (face down).


There is usually no "popping or cracking" with a Thompson Drop Table Adjustment.


Sports Injury Rehabilitation

Dr. Catherine Le utilizes physiotherapy (Electric Muscle Stimulation, Ultrasound Therapy, Traction) to help aid the healing process. With her background in massage therapy and knowledge of functional taping, she approaches the injury by addressing both the skeletal structures and the muscular components involved. The overall goal is to reduce pain while improving function.

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let Dr. Le know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
