Dr Mashner utilizes an assortment of chiropractic techniques in providing chiropractic adjustments to his patients. He selects from traditional techniques such as manual and drop table adjustments or from the latest low‑force, high velocity instrument assisted adjusting techniques such as Torque Release, Impulse and Activator Methods.
“Each patient has a different need and may respond differently to an adjustment approach. While all chiropractic techniques work, I do not feel it is fair to ask all my patients to fit a particular treatment method or technique. Accordingly, for each patient I select the method of treatment from the ‘tools in my toolbox’ which I believe will provide the most effective result and positive outcome from my care.”

Therapy and Rehabilitative Services
Research has shown that the patients who receive the maximum benefit and longest lasting results from chiropractic care are those who participate in an active Spinal Rehabilitation program. In addition to the Chiropractic Adjustment which helps to restore joint function and reduce nerve irritation, and therapies to help reduce initial muscle spasm and swelling, we offer specific rehabilitation routines and exercise instruction.
When repeated over time, these patient exercises will help strengthen the core spinal muscles so that they can help to hold and maintain the correction provided by the adjustment.
Nutritional Assessments and Counseling
In today’s fast food environment, proper nutrition is one of the key elements to help you achieve the health and vitality of a body in balance. Like a computer, “garbage in means garbage out”. Even with the best in chiropractic adjustments, if a body lacks the proper raw materials to rebuild itself, the ability to help your body back to a healthy balance may be limited.
Our Weight Loss and Nutritional Counseling Services may include a review of dietary and eating habits, measurement of Body Mass Index (which reflects the relationship of height and weight to percent body fat), a Symptom Survey Analysis, Saliva Testing, and/or a Meridian Stress Assessment. Our Meridian Stress Assessment System (MSAS) is state of the art and a completely non‑invasive method of gaining valuable information about the body’s vital functions.
According to European medical research, acupuncture points are related to the body’s organ systems, and are connected through channels or meridians. As a patient moves toward or away from health, stress associated with the corresponding organ or organ system can be sensed and surveyed at representative points on the hands and feet. While not used to provide a medical diagnosis, the Meridian Stress Assessment System can be used to identify stress values that are above and below equilibrium (out of balance), and provide valuable information to assist Dr. Mashner in making appropriate nutritional or herbal recommendations that may further help restore your body to balance.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has identified and utilized major groups of points on the body which are connected through channels or meridians. Stimulation of these points by the insertion of fine needles can be used to help restore systems to balance. Acupuncture may be used to help “calm” irritated nerves, such as the increased nerve sensitivity which may accompany a spinal misalignment or a sprain/strain injury and may be causing pain, burning, or tingling sensations.
