Chiropractic Care

Doctor adjusting manThe world of physical healthcare is expansive, and the options of how to address the health and wellness of you and your family can be overwhelming and fraught with misinformation. Generally, caring for the physical body can include orthopedics, physical therapy, and chiropractic care.

Here at Ideal Health Centers, we believe that our method of chiropractic is actually the best combination of all three. Orthopedists focus on surgery and joint replacement, physical therapists focus on exercise and rehabilitation, and chiropractors focus on the spine, the entire nervous system, and how all of the working parts relate to each other through movement and healing. Dr. Carter’s practice is simply focused on supporting the body through healing and all of our techniques cater to that goal.

Conditions Treated and Techniques Used


Our techniques have been known to aid in recovery from conditions such as:

  • Sciatica
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Neck pain

  • Low back pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Shoulder, knee
    and joint pain

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Carpal tunnel
  • And more!

Some of the techniques we employ include:

Diversified – The Diversified technique is a manual adjustment technique that involves the application of high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust. The Diversified technique is the most commonly used spinal manipulation chiropractic technique, and is utilized specifically to realign the spine, restore and improve mobility, and aid in joint dysfunction.

Applied Kinesiology – Applied Kinesiology is a technique used to determine the underlying sources of your pain, discomfort, and dysfunctions. This process involves applying muscle strength testing in order to determine diagnoses and ideal adjustment methods. Applied Kinesiology is more of a diagnostic technique than an actual adjustment technique, and is generally used by Dr. Carter to ensure that your care plan is best suited to your specific needs.

Nutrition Response Testing – Nutrition Response Testing is another diagnostic technique utilized by Dr. Carter. This technique is a simple system of whole-body non-invasive analysis that helps to determine the root causes of your symptoms. The ultimate goal with Nutrition Response Testing is to address those root causes by allowing the body to heal itself, with natural, healthy, and safe means.

Activator Technique – The Activator technique is a gentler, lower force adjustment technique that relies on the aid of a hand-held instrument. This technique is ideal for young patients.

Spinal Decompression – Spinal decompression is a chiropractic technique designed to remove subluxations from the spine by removing pressure from the spine structure. This process involves carefully stretching the spine in order to release pressure from pinched nerves or herniated discs.

Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) – CBP is a postural correction technique designed to rehabilitate the spine, minimize pain, disease, and organ dysfunction, and improve posture.

Active Relief Technique – Active Relief Technique is a manual manipulation technique that aids in the healing of soft tissue through manual movement. The process of ART involves determining and targeting specific areas of scar tissue in order to promote blood flow and faster healing. This technique is ideal for treating issues with muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves.
