Our Techniques

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:

Charette Extremities Protocol

Dr. Mark Charette has spent years developing and teaching an effective procedure that addresses common misalignments of the feet, knees, hips, wrists, elbows, shoulders, ribs, and TMJ.

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let Dr. Robert Lavoie know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
