Why You Should Go to a Chiropractor
Every part of your body relies on the effectiveness and efficiency of your nervous system and its ability to properly transmit nerve impulses. Clear pathways void of any interference in this communication are vital to your health and well-being. Spinal misalignments (“subluxations”) can block these transmissions, causing health issues and the inability to heal. These issues can be far-reaching, affecting all areas of the body. Chiropractic adjustments clear the pathways, removing any interference, allowing for the body to respond properly and efficiently. There are many forms of chiropractic adjustment, and varying degrees of manipulation. At InSight Health & Wellness, Dr. Dunlap will determine the most effective and efficient form of treatment, and our patient educator will make sure you have a clear understanding of the program, and you are comfortable with the process.
Spinal and Postural Screenings
Spinal and postural screenings from our expert doctors can reveal crucial health information to improve health and well-being. Dr. Rick Dunlap will perform a comprehensive exam and X-rays (if needed) to determine if you have any underlying issues that can affect your long term health and well-being.

Most Popular Chiropractic Techniques Used at InSight Health & Wellness
This type of adjustment technique utilizes a special table with a weighting mechanism that gives way shortly after the thrusting adjustment is rendered and provides for a gentler manipulation of the spine.
Manual therapies are physical treatments provided to our patients which include kneading and manipulation of muscles, joints, and joint mobilization to decrease pain and healing time.
The activator method uses a small instrument to deliver a gentle impulse to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted vertebra or joint. This method is gentler than the manual adjusting technique and is an alternative technique for patients who are seeking less impact on their muscles when being adjusted.
The focus of the Gonstead adjustment is to provide precise and accurate adjustments to specific problem areas. Bio-mechanically correct position and a precise adjustment is emphasized to provide the most painless adjustment possible.
