Chiropractic Adjustment

The goal of chiropractic adjustment is to correct the spinal subluxations detected during the examination. In order to achieve this, the chiropractor applies pressure to the joint and unlocks it from improper position. The adjacent bones will then be free to align themselves correctly. 

Many people think that the chiropractor forces a vertebra back into its proper place; but only the individual's body intelligence knows that is the proper place for each bone. The role of the chiropractor is to free up the vertebrae or joints so the body can then do its job to put them back into the correct position.

Often the muscles innervated by the nerve originating from subluxated vertebrae become used to their positions and have a tendency to pull the bones back out of place. It may take several treatments before the adjustments hold and bones settle into proper alignment.


Active Therapeutic Movements 2 (ATM®2)



ATM® is a machine assisted therapy. Bending, leaning or twisting of your neck or back that causes pain is called a motion disorder. Most of us have motion disorders on different parts of our body. We offer a therapy that can help reduce or eliminate painful movements even on the first visit. ATM®s aim to immediately alter symptoms by affecting the Central Nervous System control. The ATM®2 Machine is incredibly effective in relieving back and neck pain in a few simple and painless treatments under the supervision of Dr. Yajima. Ask Dr. Yajima for more information about ATM®2.









Cold Laser Therapy (Low Level Laser)

Low Level Laser Therapy has shown the potential to repair damaged tissue and organs. It refers to the modality of applying a "low" energy or "low level" laser to tissue that stimulates cellular processes and boosts the body’s ability to repair itself. Cold lasers are less than 1% as powerful as hot lasers so results are painless and produce little if any sensation. The laser emits light at the same speed as the cells in the body. It acts as a reset mechanism for the neurophysiology and energy meridians of the body. Since more energy is now available, the cell may utilize this fuel to function more efficiently.


Graston Technique®


Graston Technique® is a stainless steel instrument-assisted soft tissue release technique which allows clinicians to detect and break down scar tissue that limits range of motion and often causes pain.  






Kinesio Taping®


Kinesio Taping® gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It is also used for preventive maintenance, edema, and to treat pain.

Kinesio Taping® is a technique based on the body's own natural healing process and exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically stems from the science of Kinesiology, hence the name "Kinesio". Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body but also control the venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly include various types of symptoms.
