Dr. MacKenzie utilizes a variety of modalities and treatments to help her patients feel better, move more easily and help them function at their best.

Some of the Chiropractic techniques Dr. MacKenzie utilizes are:

Diversified: This is the classic chiropractic technique, developed by D.D. Palmer, DC. and taught in all chiropractic colleges. Diversified Technique was refined and developed by the late Otto Reinert, DC, to address biomechanical failure in each section of the spine, as it relates to specific subluxation. The focus is on restoration to normal biomechanical function, and correction of subluxation. In addition, Diversified methods have been developed to adjust extremity joints, allowing for beneficial applications in treating sports injuries and other injuries. Diversified adjusting of the spine uses specific lines of drives for all manual thrusts, allowing for specificity in correcting mechanical distortions of the spine. 

Drop Table: Basically here is how it works. The table has different sections that get raised up about 1 or 2 inches in relation to the rest of the body. The part of the drop table that gets used will usually correspond to the area of the spine that need to be adjusted (although this is not always the case). After a section of the table is raised slightly it is locked in place and the tension of the table is adjusted based on the patients body weight. When extra pressure is applied to the table (or body part on the table), the table will release thus dropping down, making that part of the body fall as well. When the drop table section stops the momentum of the body will continue on a little bit. it is this momentum of the body that is actually used to perform the drop table adjustment.

Flexion-Distraction: This technique has become the most widely used approach to treating symptomatic disc injuries involving back pain and the often-accompanying leg pain. Flexion-distraction involves the use of a specialized table that gently distracts or stretches the spine and which allows the chiropractor to isolate the area of disc involvement while slightly flexing the spine in a pumping rhythm. There is no pain involved in the treatment.

Activator Method: The activator adjusting instrument is the tool doctors choose to deliver low-force chiropractic adjustments.  This unique hand-held instrument has been studied extensively with results published in hundreds of peer-reviewed research papers and was designed to give patients a specific and gentle adjustment.  The Activator provides a controlled, fast thrust that is comfortable for the patient.  In fact, adjustments with the activator, are so quick and measured, the body's muscles are less likely to resist, allowing for a more precise and accurate adjustment.

Other Services:

  • Cold Laser Therapy offers a non-intrusive option to acupuncture and surgery.  It also provides a non-addicting treatment that eliminates the complications of long-term drug treatment programs.  Cold laser therapy is widely used fot treatment of many conditions including sprains, strains, carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, back pain, and arthritis just to name a few
