Our Chiropractic Techniques

Spine modelAt Hoffart Chiropractic, we use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:


This full spine approach relies on X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results.

Atlas Orthogonal

After studying the relationship between your skull and spine, our instrument uses a gentle percussive force to move the uppermost bone of your spine.

Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust.


After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints.


Sacro Occipital Technique helps normalize the relationship between the pelvis and the head, using gravity to make the necessary correction.

AK Applied Kinesiology

Testing the strength of specific muscles of your body helps us find structural, chemical and mental problems and monitor your results.

Active Release®

Athletic injuries and many muscle-related conditions respond quickly and permanently with this state-of-the-art soft tissue technique.
