Dr. Lori's Approach
Chiropractic keeps your body in balance and aligned. Adjustments relieves pressure from the nerves and restores movement in the joints.The adjustment corrects the alignment, so the nerves can transmit messages freely to the nerves and organs.
To correct misalignments (subluxations), Dr. Lori utilizes the Diversified, Thompson, Gonstead, SOT techniques in her clinic, as well as gentle adjustments with the activator. She helps headaches, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, worker injuries, auto accident and personal injuries, ATV injuries, snowmobile injuries, musculoskeletal sprain/strains, sciatica, arm pain, leg pain, low back pain and other conditions. She is also certified in physiotherapies, and utilizes ultrasound, laser and electrical muscle stimulation, as well as rehabilitative exercises, sports specific training and wellness training. She is a former national level bodybuilding competitor and earned her ISSA personal training certification in 2008.
