Services & Techniques

Traditional Chiropractic Care - Gentle realignment of vertebrae to relieve "pinched nerves" or other types of nerve irritation and interference. We use specific Diversified, Gonstead, Sacro Occipital Technique (S.O.T.) and Thompson techniques. Dr. Anthony is an award winning master chiropractor who is very gifted with his hands. This means his patients get very comfortable adjustment treatments!

Palmer Method
- The original chiropractic treatment philosophy and techniques developed by the originator of chiropractic, D.D. Palmer. This type of chiropractic care is very specific. It works on individual segments taking a marksman's approach. With the Palmer method you would get a chiropractic adjustment of Atlas or the C-1 vertebra if you had a headache or dizziness, not just a neck adjustment or we would work on T-6 for stomach problems not just the back. By being more specific you get better and longer lasting results. From Toggle recoil to Meric recoil to Specific Segmental Diversified, you will find it here if you need it.

Non-Force and Low -Force Techniques- For patients who want to avoid "noises" with their adjustments and want the gentlest treatments available. Most seniors, babies, children and patients who have had spinal surgery will be treated this way and still get great results!

Release and Reconnect Therapy (R.R.T.)- RRT is a powerful combination of healing modalities that help release tension, stress and pain. When an individual experiences acute stress in their everyday life or is suffering from illness or injury, the body becomes stuck in an extended sympathetic stress response and is unable to balance itself, heal or return to health. RRT allows the body to drop into a deep state parasympathetic relaxation where the body, once again, can begin to heal itself. It is a highly pleasurable, non-intrusive method of healing with no risk of aggravating any preexisting physical injuries. It is not massage therapy. RRT is a combination of Reiki, hands on cranial stimulation and tension release body work throughout the head, neck, shoulders and entire body. This popular therapy is performed exclusively by Jo, the therapy's originator.

Apo E gene testing, diet and exercise plan - Did you know your body provides warning signals before chronic disease, like Alzheimer's Disease, develops? Subtle changes in the body such as obesity, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure can lead to serious chronic illnesses including heart disease and Alzheimer's disease. A recent Alzheimer's abstract from the Alzheimer's Association confirmed that, in just 6 years, Alzheimer's disease has increased by an alarming 47%. In addition, many experts believe a serious dementia trend is emerging from our current obesity and diabetes epidemic. What if you could stop Alzheimer's, heart disease, and other chronic illnesses? Your body's own DNA is a predictor of many chronic disease risk factors. We have incorporated cutting-edge research using in office genetic testing. Dr. Anthony and other integrative medicine practitioners have learned your body's own genes are the best predictor of chronic disease coupled with diet and exercise. The Perfect Gene Diet is his approach; an innovative health and lifestyle program developed by Pamela McDonald, a board certified integrated medicine nurse practitioner from Northern California with clinical research and medical science supporting the plan. Dr. Anthony has been personally trained by Pamella McDonald, N.P. and is the only Perfect Gene Diet provider in Southern California! Genetic testing uses simple blood tests, or cheek swab, to test for a person's specific type of APO E gene and advanced cholesterol levels (We test for 13 types of cholesterol not just the 3 that most doctors test.). Each type of APO E gene requires a particular balance of carbohydrate, fat, and protein for optimal health. McDonald's research demonstrates that matching these findings with a personalized lifestyle plan minimizes the patient's risk of chronic disease, including Alzheimer's Disease. Dr. Andrew Weil and Dr. Wayne Dyer are just two well known personalities who use it and recommend it.

Bio-Energetic-Synchronization - Technique (B.E.S.T.)
- Here at Anthony Chiropractic, we recognize that it is just as important to adjust the mind as it is to adjust the spine. Our approach to mental adjustment is the Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique, or B.E.S.T. B.E.S.T. is a fast, effective quantum healing technique that removes emotional triggers from the subconscious mind. B.E.S.T. is an important part of our holistic approach to healing because these subconscious emotional triggers are what cause mental, emotional, and physical stress, and set off pain syndromes. Much like deleting adware or viruses from your computer hard drive will restore your computer's performance, removing interference from your sub-conscious "hard drive" will allow your body to return to its original genetic programming for health and happiness. B.E.S.T. is especially good for anxiety, depression, stress reduction, insomnia, and allergy elimination. Dr. Anthony is an Elite Master Practitioner of B.E.S.T. and has been personally trained by the founder of B.E.S.T., Dr. M.T.Morter and his daughter, Dr. Sue Morter.
