Activator Methods

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust.


Sacro Occipital Techniques helps normalize the relationship between the pelvis and the head using gravity to make the necessary correction.

If you have been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted a certain way, please let us know.  Our goal is to have you relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care. 

Please contact our Vermillion office at 605-624-8822 to schedule your appointment.

Atlas Orthogonal

After studying the relationship between your skull and spine, our instrument uses a gentle percussive force to move the uppermost bone of your spine


After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up "stuck" spiral joints.


Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine.

Applied Kinesiology

Testing the strength of specific muscles of your body helps us find structural, chemical and mental problems and monitor your results.


This full spine approach relies on X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results.

Disc Decompression

Our specifically-equipped table will ever so slowly stretch your spine.  Then relax it. Then stretch and relax it again.  Excellent for disc cases.
