Manual Spinal Adjustment

Chiropractic is a branch of the HEALING ARTS that utilizes the body's own powers of natural healing energy. Chiropractic focuses on disorders of the spine, musculoskeletal, nervous system and the effects of these disorders on general health.

CHIROPRACTIC comes from the Greek word CHIROPRAKTIKOS, meaning "Effective Treatment by Hand". Using the correction and adjustment of the spinal bones (vertebra) the Chiropractor is able to release the pressure on the pinched nerves. Releasing of this nerve pressure lets the normal nerve energy travel from the brain down the spinal cord and exit the spine through the spinal nerves, causing the brain to be able to communicate with the muscle tissues, organs and all other body parts for a healthy, well functioning body without pain.

Arthro-stim Spinal Adjustment

This device is more user specific as it can be adjusted to deliver from a few ounces up to 40 pounds of force. The force is adjusted depending on the initial pressure placed upon the patient's body by the Chiropractor.

Arthro-Stim is an FDA approved instrument. It has been continuously refined and perfected over its 22-year history. The Arthro-Stim gives patients a specific spinal vertebral adjustment, meaning that only the segment that is out of position is adjusted. There is no twisting, turning or "cracking" of joints. This technique permits adjusting in different postures.

Most patients report a feeling of ease, relaxation and well-being as their structural nerve stress (subluxations) releases/diminishes.

Electro Therapeutic Point Stimulation (ETPS)

ETPS is a powerful healing technique that eliminates pain very fast. It is not painful and causes increased blood supply, muscle relaxation, nerve stimulation to treated areas. And it is known to create an endorphin effect. It works very well with Chiropractic adjustments to give you a pain-free healthy body.

The theoretical underpinnings of ETPS therapy are based on sound medicine, firmly grounded in the concept of acupuncture, modern neurology, microcurrent stimulation and myofascial release (muscular relaxation) techniques. ETPS is a unique and very powerful HEALING instrument.
Contribution to pain relief comes from the synthesis of these different approaches. Combining the therapeutic techniques of these different therapies leads to a more HARMONIOUS body and mind.

By following the recommended protocols, Chiropractors are able to identify anatomical areas (vertical subluxation) most responsible for contributing to patients' painful conditions.

Using this approach, ETPS can produce superior results over traditional pain therapy techniques in a fraction of the time. All without drugs, side effects, pads or gels.

One morning I woke up with a horrible neck pain. I couldn't turn my head to the left nor to the right. Every time I tried to turn my head, I'd experienced a shooting pain throughout my neck. The First day I did everything I was told to do by my relatives and friends, hoping the pain would be gone by the next morning. But when I woke the next day, the pain was even worse than the day before. I knew I had to seek professional treatment. My wife gave me Dr. Kanan's card that her girlfriend have her after hearing about my problem and oh boy… am l THANKFUL to this woman.

Dr. Mel was able to see me that same day. The pain was reduced after the first treatment. Dr. Mel plainly explained to me the root cause of the problem, and gave me a treatment plan. By the end of the third treatment, the pain was completely gone. I'm a firm believer in CURING pain at the root of the problem and not conceal it with painkillers.

I will always RECOMMEND Dr. Kanan to everyone.

Thank you, Dr. Melvin (Mel) Kanan!
