Our Chiropractic Techniques

Chiropractors use a variety of chiropractic techniques, physical medicine, and rehabilitation therapies in addition to nutritional advice to care for the whole person.

The primary goal is to enhance and improve a patient’s overall health and wellness without using drugs or surgery.

The techniques we use in your care at Langlitz Chiropractic & Massage will be designed to fit your body’s specific needs. Our doctors will always discuss your care and the process with you at every visit before starting.

Here are some of the most common techniques we use:

Nutritional Counseling

Nutrition is an important part of staying healthy. We will discuss the basics of proper nutrition and counsel you on how you can achieve total health and wellness by including a healthy diet to your daily lifestyle. We’re also able to refer you to a naturopath or dietitian if you need more specialized guidance.


Without some form of rehab, recovery from an injury or long-term spinal problem can take longer to achieve. The combined effectiveness of chiropractic, physical therapy and exercise rehabilitation can help improve motion, increase muscle strength, enhance coordination and balance and prevent your original health problem from returning again and again. read more..
