Cox Flexion: This gentle yet effective technique reduces nerve pressure and alleviates pain associated with bulging discs by gently pulling the affected vertebrae away from each other, allowing the herniated or compressed disc to be drawn back into position. read more»

Activator: The activator device delivers a fast, low-force thrust that is much faster than adjustments by hand and is particularly useful in treating children. read more»

Drop Table: This technique uses a table that gently “drops” below the area being treated to deliver lighter thrusts directly to the affected joints. This technique is particularly useful for treating pelvic, dorsal and lumbar regions. read more»

Essential Oils

Dr. VonBergen has over twenty years experience working with essential oils and looks forward to expanding our patient education services in the coming year by providing workshops on using essential oils to enhance natural wellness.

Essential Oils are used in three ways:

  • aromatically inhaled – aromatically from the bottle or diffuser
  • topically – apply directly to the skin, often with a carrier oil such as vegetable or olive oil
  • dietary- swallow 1 – 2 drops; mix with liquids such as water, juice or plant-based milk; or place in a capsule and take internally.

Dr. VonBergen encourages interested people to learn from her 20 years of essential oil experiences.
