The techniques Dr. Serpentelli uses to treat you include hands-on and low-force instrument adjusting. He utilizes the Palmer Package and Thompson Drop Technique. We can treat anyone, from the elderly who need a gentle approach to athletes looking for a manual adjustment.
Percussor Therapeutic Device
The Erchonia Percussor device is a hand-held mechanical adjustment device with a unique “Galvanic Wave” action head that provides comfort to the patient receiving percussion.
Functional and Kinetic Training with Rehabilitation, also known as FAKTR, uses instruments and weights to break up adhesions. Resistance and functional movements help to restore your normal joint function.
Targeted Enzyme Therapy
Loomis Enzymes® target your body’s improper diet, digestion, absorption, transport and removal of waste products in your system. These problems are usually due to an enzymatic process that is lacking in the body. With targeted enzyme therapy, we can pinpoint the problem and correct it with supplements and dietary changes.
While Dr. Serpentelli is very well trained and proficient in the Palmer package of manual chiropractic adjustment techniques, there are certain situations where some patients may find manual adjustment uncomfortable. In this case, Dr. Serpentelli utilizes a handheld mechanical device called The Adjustor™.
The Adjustor™ is a machine that aids the chiropractor in performing adjustments. It is a powerful tool that delivers 12-14 incremental thrusts per second. This makes it stronger and faster than a typical single manual adjustment thrust by a chiropractor. By dividing the energy of a single thrust into rapid success of inputs, the instrument is able to modulate the force the chiropractor utilizes in the treatment making it more comfortable for patients who do not tolerate manual manipulation.
This allows Dr. Serpentelli to maintain the effectiveness of your treatment while greatly reducing the amount of force that is applied, which makes it easier to use on a wide variety of conditions and ailments including:
- Infants and young children
- Individuals with acute or extreme pain
- Particularly sensitive patients
- Individuals who dislike being "cracked"
- Individuals who require adjustments to the extremities; shoulder, wrist, elbow, knee, ankle, etc
- Elderly patients
