Dr. Perron is not your average chiropractor and this is in no small part due to the technique he has trained for over 20 years to be a master of, Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique ("Activator"). It has been referred to as the "Activator Advantage." Dr. Perron was trained in the more common techniques used that involve palpating and twisting and popping in an effort to align the spine and although that can be effective in many situations he has found it to be much more limiting in how much benefit you, the patient, may be able achieve.
Activator has been developed and advanced for over 50 years and is proven to be greatly effective. It combines the most advanced and precise analysis, to find the cause of your health problems, with the safest and most gentle approach to resolve your problems.
It means that the chances of finding and addressing the actual cause of your problem are excellent. It also means that on the rare occasion Dr. Perron may refer you to another healthcare professional if he determines that your problem is not chiropractic related. Treatment is "all about the cause", as Dr. Perron has stated countless times. Symptoms have to be created they are not the problem itself. So fix the cause and the symptoms take care of themselves. The reason most approaches to musculoskeletal pain don't work or don't last is that they target the pain instead of the cause.
Our services are centered around the cause and that is the alignment of your skeleton.
Step 1: Align your skeletal structure, this is accomplished through Activator. This aspect of the treatment is performed in our state of the art office.
Step 2: Retrain your muscles to support and reinforce your skeleton now that it is aligned correctly. In most cases the original misalignment took place years ago and it may have just taken until now for your muscles to complain about this extra burden by sending a signal of pain to your brain. Therefore your muscles have likely been trained over a period of time to support your bones in the wrong place because they had no option. Muscles have a learning curve and with the assistance of the most advanced technology in muscle function, we are able to prescribe a very personalized, targeted exercise program to get your muscles back in the habit of supporting your bones in their correct position. This is the key to resolution versus temporary relief. You will be taught the proper way to perform all prescribed exercises but you can perform this aspect of your care at home on your own schedule.
Our office is designed to provide the services you need in a way that can accommodate your busy schedule. The effectiveness of the treatment should be expected the efficiency of your office visits is what stands out the most to our patients and they appreciate just as much as their great results.
