Amino Neuro Frequency Therapy (ANF) is a revolutionary holistic approach to pain, inflammation and dis-ease in the body following nerve paths and systems to find the root cause of a problem and activate the body’s defense system to help with healing.
How does Amino Neuro Frequency Therapy work?
It uses a combination of frequency emitting wearable devices, called ANF Discs. Each disc is applied directly on the skin and activated by your own body heat. Each disc transmits a unique range of frequencies which connect with the neurons in your body. Your nervous system understands each frequency and applies them to the appropriate neurons. This begins a self-healing and self-regulating process. By improving nervous system signaling directly at a cellular level, the effect of the treatment is much faster and has remarkable durable results. The ANF Therapy does not require the use of any drugs or chemicals and has no side effects.
Discs can be used for all systems of the body and are great for relief of pain and inflammation. Inflammation can be dormant in your body for ten years before signs of pain or discomfort. Disfunction and imbalance in one area of the body can affect other systems as well. These discs can be used anywhere on the body to promote health and healing.
In addition to any orthopedic, muscle testing and full body analysis we may perform at our office, we also utilize the most innovative and scientific technology to track your care and progress. Our Insight Millennium analyzes:
1. How your body handles stress
2. Muscle health, balance and symmetry
3. Heart rate variability
4. Skin temperature
5. Stress adaptability and regulation
6. Organ and System analysis
This gives us a picture of your full health status. Where are you right now? How are you progressing in care? All of this can be measured by this machinery.
This is a full body analysis finds out how your health is now and tracks your progress during your care to see if your goals are being achieved. If anything else comes up that needs to be addressed, we can find it early and tackle it together before it becomes a problem. This machine is used by Cardiologists, professional athletes and personal trainers. It combines accuracy, validity and reliability the nerves, brain and spinal connection which communicates to all other systems and glands in your body. It is completely painless, non-invasive, safe and has no side effects.
Full body assessments help reveal important physical information that may not be apparent as a symptom yet but may be looming and waiting to surface. As you know, sometimes we don’t know we have a problem until it causes us pain or discomfort. This scan shows how your body is reacting to stress and functioning by analyzing your heart rate, skin temperature, muscle balance and strength as well as spinal health. It also analyzes your Autonomic Nervous System which determines the balance between your sympathetic and parasympathetic activity in the body.

Getting into a car accident can be very serious, even if the impact was not at a high speed. Getting care quickly is best to avoid long term problems that can occur if left untreated.
So does chiropractic help after a car accident?
Yes, there are many benefits to getting chiropractic care after a car accident.
* Reduce Pain
* Restore range of motion
* Reduce Scar Tissue
* Quicker Healing
We help with common and uncommon problems that may occur after a car accident can be greatly reduced after visiting our office: Here are just a few symptoms we help with rehabilitation and recovery:
3. Low back pain
4. Shoulder pain
5. Neck pain
8. Arm pain
9. Weakness in gripping
13. Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ)
When it comes to injuries after a car accident, time is of the essence. Permanent damage can occur and scar tissue can develop very quickly without proper treatment in as little as 48 hours. Sometimes you may not feel the symptoms right away because of the shock of the accident but when they come, they are often severely painful.
How long do you need to see a chiropractor after a car accident?
Well, that depends on the severity of the accident, how healthy you are in general, age and progress. Soft tissue injuries normally take 6-8 weeks just to stabilize and get pain free. After the initial pain goes away, rehabilitation is required to make sure the pain stays away and inflammation is no longer happening.

Dr. Gregory is a Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner. After graduating from chiropractic school, she continued her education and has completed additional corrective care training set by the Council on Extremity Adjusting. The focus of extremity adjusting and analysis is to make sure the whole body is addressed. The nervous system is not only addressed in the spine but we track the branches that lead to the extremities. We want to make sure all areas are functioning throughout and if there is a problem outside of the spine, it can be addressed.
Many people have headaches, shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, ankle and foot pain that can not always be cured with a spinal adjustment and may need additional work. We want to make sure your whole body is balanced and working together harmoniously as a unit. This will enable you to achieve total wellness and prevent problems in the future.

This technique uses specially designed instruments to separate and break down scar tissue that has accumulated in muscles, ligaments and tendons after an injury, even a minor one. Injuries cause acute or chronic pain, inflammation and decreased movement.
After using this treatment several improvements occur:
1. Increased mobility
2. Better cellular activity
3. Increased fibroblastic activity (tissue that plays a critical role in wound healing)
4. More blood flow to and from the area.
This promotes the healing process and allows the tissues to realign in the appropriate manner without knots or adhesions leading to decreased movement and elevating the risk of another injury.
This is works great for athletes, repetitive stress injuries and even people with desk jobs who sit for long hours at a time. SASTM is a Graston technique that is accurate at finding problems areas and working out these areas so your body can move the way it should without restriction.
Dr. Larry Webster, Founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association discovered this technique as a safe means to restore proper pelvic balance and function for pregnant mothers. In expectant mothers who have pelvic or low back pain or have been told their baby is breech, this technique is performed with amazing results. According to the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (2002), an 82% success rate is seen by Webster Technique Certified Chiropractors who work with mothers with babies presenting breech or transverse. I have personally treated a mother to be that was 40 weeks pregnant with success. It has also successfully used with twins.
This technique is fast, gentle and effective. We use this technique not only to help the pelvis loosen up by affecting the round ligament which hold the uterus in position, but to keep the mother and baby relaxed throughout pregnancy. For more information please click here: Webster Technique.
When should you do Webster Technique?
This technique is great during all terms of pregnancy but it is very common to have expectant mothers call for an appointment around week 35 to 37, if your baby is still in breech position. If your baby has not turned at 37 weeks, your doctor will probably suggest attempting external cephalic version. This is when your doctor attempts to turn your baby while still in the uterus by pushing on the baby with his or her hands through your abdomen. This procedure can bring about complications including vaginal bleeding, premature rupture of membranes, fetal distress and premature labor. If there are no complications but your baby is still breech after this procedure, then a schedule C-Section is scheduled. The Webster technique is safer, less invasive and it also prepares your pelvis for birth making it easier for you and your baby and avoiding C-section.
The Zone Technique addresses disturbances in the body that are within one or more zones and systems in the body. Your brain sends signals to the spinal cord and out to various systems in the body.

This balances out your systems and helps your body heal quickly and efficiently. The systems are:

Studies have shown that using cold laser can significantly accelerate and enhance your body’s natural defense, decrease inflammation and increase rehabilitation and tissue repair after an injury allowing you to heal quicker.
Laser therapy stimulates your body’s natural healing power at a cellular level. The Cold Laser uses what is called “Photon energy” which is basically the energy produced by light, to stimulate the activity of your cell and its components. This therapy is effective, painless and best of all you don’t have to take a drug to feel the effects.
