About Chiropractic Care

 

When the musculoskeletal system is in balance, joints have good mobility and alignment, which helps prevent pain. However injuries, repetitive activities, and sustained poor posture can lead to imbalances in the musculoskeletal system. Physical symptoms in the body such as joint and muscle aches, pain, numbness or tingling often involve abnormal joint motion and structural misalignment that is addressed through chiropractic care.

She was selected by Dr. David Maxwell to take over his practice of 36 years given their similarity in practice style and a common goal of helping patients naturally eliminate pain and improve health.

Dr. Aklinski offers gentle manual and low-force chiropractic techniques while using similar methods as Dr. Maxwell, who had provided outstanding chiropractic care to patients for over 36 years.

Specific styles of chiropractic that Dr. Aklinski offers include Diversified (manual) adjusting, Drop Table technique, Instrument-assisted low-force technique, and SOT (pelvic blocking).
