Chiropractic treatment identifies misalignments (subluxations) in your neuromusculoskeletal system, and works to correct them through the manipulation of your joints. At Beyond Chiropractic, we offer chiropractic adjustments in addition to the other modalities & health services to provide our patients with the best possible care. We are strong believers in preventative care and utilize chiropractic treatment to maintain healthy lifestyles. Our philosophy of individualized care is important to us and we pride ourselves in developing specific treatment plans for each patient.

How do we treat our patients? We use a variety of techniques but Dr. Lash’s preferred system is “The Palmer Package” which is taught by the Palmer College of Chiropractic. It includes a variety of techniques such as: Diversified, Thomson and Gonstead. Diversified consists of spinal analysis to identify improper positions of one or more vertebrae and the administration of a manual thrust to restore proper position. With this technique you may hear an audible noise called a cavitation which is air being released from the joint to allow for better motion in the joint. Thomson is a light force technique which uses a special table with drop-away

sections to minimize the amount of energy needed to adjust the spine. Gonstead technique is a full spine approach that involves the patient sitting or laying in a variety of postures so the doctor can provide adjustments to relieve misalignments & pain/tension. Dr. Lash also utilizes the Activator Protocol and Flexion-Distraction technique. The Activator is a small tool which delivers a quick low force into the joint to help restore proper motion. This technique may be used in patients who prefer lower force over manual adjustments or have contra-indications such as severe osteoporosis or spinal fusion. Flexion-Distraction is a non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands-on technique that uses decompression to treat disc injuries involving back and leg pain. With this technique, a specialized table is used to gently stretch the spine and relieve pressure from the nerves. It is effective in treating disc herniations, slipped discs, ruptured discs, facet syndrome, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, post-surgical back pain, pregnancy related back pain and much more! Flexion-Distraction is a well-researched and documented therapy that helps to relieve spinal pain & allows patients to return to their desired quality of life by … 

  • dropping intradiscal pressure to as low as -192mm Hg
  • widening the spinal canal foraminal area by 28%
  • reducing pressure on the spinal nerves
  • returning motion to the spinal joints

The ultimate goal of Flexion-Distraction is to help the spinal pain patient go from pain” to “no pain” as quickly as possible.


No Pain

Soft Tissue Modalities 

At our practice, we believe treating the spine is only one aspect of care. Soft tissues (including muscles, tendons and ligaments) connect to bones which help us to move our joints. Therefore, addressing the soft tissues of the body is an important process to promote healing, relieve tension/tightness and improve joint health. At Beyond 

Chiropractic we use a variety of techniques and modalities for soft tissue care which include but are not limited to:

Gua Sha 

A ‘muscle scraping’ technique that uses a jade stone to break up adhesions found in chronic injury sites. This technique has also been beneficial for athletes & active individuals to help prevent injuries when a competition or tournament is approaching and to treat injuries like tennis elbow or low back pain. 

Trigger Point Therapy 

A technique used to identify a small area of muscle in constant spasm. Trigger points can cause constant unrelenting dull achy pain and even referral into surrounding areas when not identified and treated. This therapy consists of the doctor applying a constant pressure for several seconds to this “knot” with the goal of reducing the spasm. 

Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Tape (or RockTape) is a type of elastic tape that is designed for pain relief and soft tissue support. It functions to provide additional support to an injured tendon or ligaments, increase your body’s awareness in space (postural taping) and gently lift layers of the skin to promote increased blood flow and healing. 

Do I need to be in pain to schedule an appointment?

This is a question we get asked frequently in practice and the answer is… NO! You do not have to be in pain to schedule an appointment. In fact, since we believe in preventative care we encourage patients to schedule in before they reach the point of pain. We like to educate patients that pain is often the last symptom to come on and the first symptom to leave. Spinal misalignments, muscle tension/tightness, muscle weakness and postural distortions can be present without pain. At Beyond Chiropractic, we complete a comprehensive history and exam on each patient to assess the spine, extremities and soft tissues with or without associated pain.

Additionally there are several benefits of chiropractic care beyond decreasing pain which include but are not limited to: 

  • Reduces Stress
  • Promotes Relaxation
  • Improves Sleep
  • Enhances Athletic Performance
  • Improves Immune & Nervous System Function
