CHIROPRACTIC TECHNIQUES

 Drs. Ryan and Annie Brennan are dedicated to providing the highest quality chiropractic care for all of their patients. Their techniques offer the most complete and effective care for enhanced nerve system function. Drs. Ryan and Annie Brennan are constantly attending continuing education seminars in order to serve their practice members more efficiently and to hone their technique skills. Brennan Family Chiropractic offers chiropractic techniques such as Diversified, Thompson, Webster Technique, cranial work, instrument assisted techniques, and myofascial techniques.

Diversified and Thompson Techniques
These techniques are a specific way to assess and correct subluxations (regions with limited motion) in your spine. They are taught at chiropractic colleges throughout the United States and are completely hands-on.

Instrument Assisted Techniques
Similar to manual chiropractic adjustments to the spine and other joints, the instrument assisted adjustments work to reduce inflammation and irritation. There are several types of instruments available and each one has a unique delivery.

FAKTR- Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab
The FAKTR concept was developed by Dr. Thomas Hyde and Dr. Greg Doerr. Dr. Ryan has personally trained with Dr. Greg Doerr to further develop his ability to treat sprains and strains, connective tissue injuries, post-surgical scars, edema and bruising. Our purpose is to get our patients feeling and moving better as fast as possible. For more information, visit the FAKTR website.

Myofascial Techniques
The term myofascial refers to the muscles and the surrounding connective tissue called fascia. These techniques are hands-on and may utilize several different levels of pressure. Everyone has a different tolerance as to what is comfortable, just like when you receive a massage. Applying pressure with and without motion provides the body with neurological feedback to stimulate healing.

Webster Technique
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment for pregnant women. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated.
