Improving Your Health To A New Level!
In efforts to significantly improve spinal care and provide greater accuracy, effectiveness and comfort….physicians and engineers collaborated to develop the Pro-Adjuster/Ultralign Spinal Care Technology. Advances in the ability to digitally assess patterns and degrees of movement were originally developed by NASA and used in the aerospace industry to monitor the movement of ceramic heat shields on space shuttles as well as the integrity of the hulls of airplanes. Using sophisticated and highly accurate sensors that register types and amounts of movement, a small pressure could be applied that would then indicate the nature and amount of movement present. This fundamental concept was then applied and enhanced to diagnose and treat human function! ThePro-Adjuster/Ultralign Spinal Care Technology incorporates this technology using computerized instrumentation that isolates normal versus abnormal movement in the spine. Doctors then use that information to determine where to treat and, using the same instrumentation, very gently and accurately correct the function and integrity of spinal movement…..all in a thoroughly comfortable seated position!
Our Chiropractic office has built it’s sterling reputation by delivering “results” that make a difference. We return people to a healthier lifestyle, free from the stress of persistent problem conditions that people do not have to “just live with.”
With the help of modern technology, the job of getting you better just got easier. What if we told you there was a way to get healthy that was painless, yet precise..faster, yet safer? Would you be interested? Sure you would! Welcome to the world of the Pro-Adjuster/Ultralign.
Why is the Pro-Adjuster/Ultralign so special?
It uses space age technology to determine if each segment/spinal vertebrae is in proper alignment, so the nervous system is free to effectively transport nerve impulses throughout your body. The Pro-Adjuster/Ultralign uses the same type of technology that allows engineers to determine and handle weakness and stress on spacecraft.
The Pro-Adjuster/Ultralign is the most advanced piece of Chiropractic evaluation and treatment equipment in existence today. It is a marvel of technology and allows our office to achieve amazing results for patients.
Chronic pain is one of the most prevalent, debilitating conditions in the world, affecting 100 million adults in the US, according to the Institute of Medicine, costing the nation up to $635 billion each year in medical treatment and lost productivity. Unfortunately, the primary treatment options for chronic pain are surgery or heavy (and addictive) medications.
Fortunately, there is now another option—natural pain relief that also promotes healing. What is this miracle treatment? It’s K-Laser, Class IV laser therapy that uses red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect at a cellular level.
• Increased circulation
• Decreased swelling and inflammation
• Reduced pain
• Enhanced tissue repair
In 1916, Einstein suggested that lasers could provide benefits to the human body. He was right. In 1967, lasers were first used in medicine, with good success. Laser treatment was approved in Europe in the 1970s and in the US in 2002.
Now, K-Laser is the preferred choice for thousands of practitioners worldwide. High power laser therapy can stimulate all cell types including muscle, ligament, cartilage, nerves, etc., so a number of conditions can be treated by high power laser therapy.
Some of conditions that may typically be treated by high power laser therapy include:
• Peripheral Neuropathy, Fibromyalgia
• Back and Neck Pain
• Sciatic Pain
• Arthritis pain, Degenerative Discs/Joints
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
• Knee Problems
• Tendinitis, Trigger Fingers
• Bunion Pains, Plantar Fasciitis
• Sprains and/or Strains
• Athletic Injuries
• Bruises, Contusions
• Headaches, TMJ, Sinus Trouble
Could it be right for you? Call today for a free consultation to see if it is right for you!
We truly believe K-Laser can make a difference. Our hope is that everyone who needs it will at least give it a try. If that’s you, I encourage you to call us today to schedule your visit.

At Carrollton Family Chiropractic we also provide spinal decompression. In our office we utilize the Dynatron DX2 Spinal Decompression System. This newer system is user friendly for the patient and the doctor. With the ability of the decompression table to lower, elevate, move side to side, and its ability to be positioned to provide maximum patient comfort and effectiveness. The DX2 computer programming offers extensive treatment parameters. It monitors not only the decompression forces administered but also the precise angles of the forces.
Mechanical Decompression is a physical modality that has been used to treat various spinal dysfunctions. There is no question that decompression has been hailed in terms of its potential clinical effectiveness. Proper equipment and techniques are critical factors to the effective use of mechanical decompression. First, the device used for decompression must provide the doctor with precise control over forces applied. Second, the angle of application of distractive forces, timing, and patient position must be specific for the patient’s condition. Lastly, the use of supportive treatment modalities, such as K-Laser and/or cold laser light and interferential current therapies, is an important factor in the success of the treatment.
Mechanical Effects of Spinal Decompression
It is certainly true that not every patient with back problems is a candidate for decompression therapy. First, a comprehensive examination and spinal evaluation of the patient is completed. It is important that the doctor fully understands the patient’s condition and spinal dysfunction. Secondly, the patient’s spinal dysfunction must be one that would be helped by decompression therapy. Indications for the use of spinal decompression are:
- To achieve vertebral separation which can decrease disc pressure and reduce disc bulging, and may enhance disc fluid flow.
- The separation and gliding of the facet joints for improved alignment, articulation, and joint mobility.
- Tensing of the spinal ligaments.
- Widening of vertebral openings for the exiting of spinal nerves.
- Stretching of the spinal musculature thereby decreasing muscle spasming and improving blood flow to the spinal tissues.
When one of more of these effects has the potential to help the patient, decompression therapy might be your best treatment choice.

“My first experience with acupuncture years ago, after falling off a horse, was eye-opening. I could hardly lift my arm for 2 weeks. My mother suggested acupuncture. Three or four treatments later, my shoulder was completely healed. My mother and uncle both had knee problems, and acupuncture had helped them tremendously, as well. So I always knew that acupuncture worked for pain. What I didn’t know then is that TCM is a complete system of medicine, able to heal just about any ailment.”

At Carrollton Family Chiropractic we offer only Whole Food Supplements by Standard Process and the 21-Day Purification Program through Standard Process.
Why Whole Food Supplements? As a nation, we eat poor-quality foods that have been stripped of nutrients. We do not consume enough fresh fruits and vegetables. Many of us get our whole grains from instant rice, refined wheat breads, pastas, and cereal. We eat a tremendous amount of prepackaged, pre-made meals. One-quarter of Americans eat at fast food restaurants each day. As a result of our diets, Americans are overfed and undernourished. Selecting a Quality Supplement There are many different kinds of supplements on the market, and it can be very confusing to determine the true value of a supplement.
Is Your Daily Supplement This Complete? Many Americans believe in the value of taking a multivitamin. However, many do not take the right type of multivitamin to complete the nutritional gap within their diets.
Key Questions About Purification
Purification is merely the internal cleansing and detoxification of your body. Think of it as “spring cleaning” for your insides.
Why do I need purification?
Purification, also known as detoxification, can help you remove natural toxins from your body and help maintain a healthy weight. We are exposed to external toxins everyday, including pollutants, pesticides, and chemicals. Internally our bodies produce waste byproducts as a result of normal metabolic function. Although your body is designed to rid itself of these toxins naturally, it can become overburdened. Purification offers your body additional support to expel natural toxins and minimize your weight, which is important to maintaining your health and vitality.
Toxins can contribute to a wide range of conditions:
- Stuffy head
- Fatigue or difficulty sleeping
- Digestion and other gastrointestinal problems
- Food cravings and weight gain
- Reduced mental clarity
- Low libido
How do I determine my toxic load?
Your toxic load is the amount of toxins that your body needs to process. By answering the following questions, you may gain some insight as to your current toxic load.
Do you or have you eaten processed foods?
Do you eat non-organic fruits and vegetables?
Do you eat meat and poultry that are not free range?
Do you consume genetically altered food?
Do you or have you ever used artificial sweeteners?
Do you drink soda?
Do the foods you eat have preservatives, additives, dyes, or sweeteners added?
Do you eat fast foods and/or eat out regularly?
Do you charbroil or grill foods?
Do you drink coffee regularly?
Do you drink alcohol?
Do you drink tap water?
If the majority of your answers are “yes”, then it is likely that your diet contributes significantly to your toxic load. Beyond diet, many external toxins, such as perfumes, cleaners, and pollution, add to your load. Your health care professional can help you assess your toxic load.
What are the benefits of purification?
A purification program can have a significant, positive effect on the biochemistry of the body while allowing natural toxins and byproducts of daily metabolism to be eliminated. By participating in a purification program, you may notice the following:
- Improved weight management results
- Increased energy
- Better digestion
- Less bloating
- Clearer skin
- Shinier hair
- Disappearance or lessening of past conditions†
How is purification different than any other diet?
The Standard Process Purification Program is not a diet. It is a program that helps you live a healthier life by purifying, nourishing, and maintaining a healthy body and weight.
Our purification program emphasizes supplements and whole foods, particularly fruits and vegetables, while limiting high-calorie, refined foods and saturated fats. Nourishing yourself with nutrient-rich foods will provide the complex combination of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are needed to protect the body and promote optimal health.†
