Technique and Protocol

Our clinic offers both types of adjusting techniques within the chiropractic profession, manual adjusting and instrument assisted adjusting, to ensure your treatment expectations are fully satisfied.

Regarding instrument assisted adjusting, Dr. Detzler uses the Integrator instrument and Torque Release Technique (TRT) to detect and correct primary dysfunctions of the spine and nervous system. His preference for the Integrator instrument and TRT technique is that it is the only chiropractic approach developed out of a blind research study providing a precise, gentle release in spinal tension.

Using the Evidence-Based Chiropractic and Lifestyle Protocols™, we are committed to performing the most comprehensive spinal health assessment in order to provide the most effective, and most cost-effective, spinal health care possible.

A comprehensive Chiropractic spinal health examination is performed to determind your current state of spinal health and functional ability. This provides the basis of your best plan of care moving you as quickly as possible from recovery care to maintenance care. Then at your own choosing, you can elect moving onward to an individualized wellness and prevention care schedule.

Our shared goal at Detzler Chiropactic is singular - to provide the highest possible level of clinical excellence in order to help you achieve the best possible health outcomes - overall health and quality of life.
