Chiropractic Care

Experience a natural approach to health care with chiropractic. Dr. Pepping focuses on allowing your body to communicate and heal by removing subluxations or interference within your nervous system.

To determine the health of your spine Dr. Pepping will perform an exam which includes palpating your spine. She will feel where the areas are moving and the areas that are not moving. “We want your spine to be able to move as it should,” she said.

Keeping Your Central Nervous System Static-Free

Dr. Pepping explains that when any part of your spine gets stuck and stops moving normally, that’s what we refer to as a subluxation. Subluxations are dangerous and need to be corrected to allow your nervous system to function and heal. Dr. Pepping has a special talent in explaining complicated subjects in a way that any patient can understand. It is important to her that her patients are able to take an active role in learning what is going on inside of their bodies.

She often refers to a chart in her room that shows the roadmap of our nervous system and how it sends messages from our brain down the spinal cord and eventually to every muscle, cell, organ and tissue in our bodies. This roadmap is similar to our highways with exits and off ramps to take you to different destinations. If there is something blocking that exit, then you will either never make it to the destination, or it may take you a longer time to get there.

Once Dr. Pepping is able to help you clear up your subluxations and open up the exits and off ramps, your journey to better health will be smooth sailing all the way!

Dr. Pepping adjusting man

While using this hands-on technique, Dr. Pepping ensures her adjustments are extremely gentle. As someone who has neck and shoulder issues, she recognizes that many patients appreciate a light touch when getting adjusted. “I know I’m going to adjust somebody exactly the way I would like to be adjusted,” she said. “However, I am always open to adjust in ways that patients may have been adjusted and responded to in the past.
Activator Methods®

As an instrument-assisted technique, Activator is ideal for those who don’t want their neck adjusted manually or for patients who don’t like hearing the sound of a hands-on adjustment. If you’ve had surgery or fusions in the neck area, this method is ideal.
Applied Kinesiology

Dr. Pepping sometimes uses this system that assesses the structural, chemical and mental facets of health employing manual muscle testing combined with other standard diagnostic approaches.
Take an Active Therapy Approach

One of the changes we’ve made over the years is going from offering passive therapies to more active therapies so patients are taking more of a role in their treatment. Active therapies also will help to fix the cause versus just addressing the pain-a bandage type solution.

When patients come in now, we have them go through a circuit, which includes the following modalities:

Neck traction

Whether you have only a lower back problem or both neck and lower back, our necks are one of the most important areas of our spine. Regardless of the lack of pain, if Dr. Pepping finds that the curvature of your neck is not where it should be, you will be prescribed neck traction. Unfortunately, the use of electronics and computers are to blame for a new syndrome called “Forward Head Syndrome.” Neck traction is going to help get the ligaments and tendons in the back of your neck stretched out. Another benefit of neck traction is it helps to get hydration into those discs that are dry and aging because they’re not moving.

Wobble cushion

We will teach you how to do therapy using the wobble cushion, which is the single most effective way to get movement in the full spine. The wobble cushion, which helps to warm up the spine, is Dr. Pepping’s favorite therapy. It’s good for the very young as well as older patients. It’s also a great therapy for hyperactive kids!

Vibration therapy

Unlike the vibration you may see at the health club, our vibration plates are set at a specific frequency similar to that of our nervous system. Our patients go through different phases of care. When you get to your second phase, we introduce vibration therapy, which helps to strengthen certain muscles in your body to start holding them in their proper positioning.

Home care kit

We also will provide you with a home care kit that’s part of your treatment protocol. We will equip you with the tools to do some of those things you need to do at home.

While chiropractic doesn’t cure anything it can effectively address an array of conditions that include the following:

  • Gut issues
  • Headaches
  • Injuries from auto accidents
  • Joint pain
  • Knee pain
  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
