Chiropractic Treatment

Eastpointe Health & Fitness is a leading provider of chiropractic treatment in Rumson, Atlantic Highlands, Highlands, and the nearby areas. If you are experiencing back pain, neck pain, leg pain, or discomfort in other areas of the body, a visit to the chiropractor can help. Many people think that chiropractic care is just for back pain. However, it can also treat a variety of different health concerns including depression, memory loss, fatigue and more.

Diversified Technique

The most common technique used by chiropractors in this country. The doctor uses the position of the patient's body and a gentle thrust to adjust the vertebrae. "Clicking and popping" sensations are sometimes felt. This is known as an "audible."

Instrument Adjustments

One of the gentlest methods of adjusting the spine, the patient lies face down on the table, and a spring-loaded activator is used to almost "vibrate" the vertebrae into position. This technique is a favorite for those a bit apprehensive about manual adjusting. "I just don't like the noise!"

Toggle Drop

The chiropractor, with crossed hands, presses down firmly on a specific area of the spine. With a quick, precise thrust the doctor adjusts your spine to improve its mobility.

Drop Piece table adjustment

The patient lies on a table with a "drop piece" which falls from under them when the brief thrust is applied. It allows for a more gentle adjustment without the twisting positions that may accompany manual adjustments.

Motion Palpitation

A hands-on procedure to check if your vertebrae are moving freely.
