On The Go Chiro provides advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing diversified chiropractic technique, drop table, and Impulse Adjusting Instrument®. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument® offers EXTREME SPEED that is twice as fast as other adjusting instruments and 100x faster than manual chiropractic adjustments. The gentle thrust is faster than the body’s tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment. It utilizes CONTROLLED FORCE which offers three different force settings for different parts of the body and to treat patients of all ages. The controlled low force thrust makes treatments comfortable. Lastly it offers a WAVE FORM specifically tuned to the natural frequency of the body that joints, muscles and nerves respond to, optimizing results for patients. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Tory has over 15 years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
PHYSICAL MEDICINE MODALITY
Fenzian is a non-invasive and painless system of treatment with a wide range of applications. A medically-qualified and trained Fenzian practitioner uses the handheld device on the skin of the patient in a variety of ways depending on the patient’s history and individual state at the time of treatment. Fenzian technology in the device forms part of a biofeedback link with the patient's normal physiological repair and maintenance processes to improve the patient’s state of health. It is possibly the most exciting pioneering technology within the rapidly emerging 'electroceutical' treatments.
Massage is no longer available only through luxury spas and upscale health clubs. Today, massage therapy is offered in businesses, clinics, hospitals and even airports. If you've never tried massage, learn about its possible health benefits and what to expect during a massage therapy session.
What is massage?
Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage may range from light stroking to deep pressure. There are many different types of massage, including these common types:
Swedish massage: This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.
Deep massage: This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.
Sports massage: This is similar to Swedish massage, but it's geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries.
Trigger point massage: This massage focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse.
Benefits of massage
Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It's increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.
Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for the following conditions:
- Reducing stress
- Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
- Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.
- Ease medication dependence.
- Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body's natural defense system.
- Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
- Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
- Improve the condition of the body's largest organ—the skin.
- Increase joint flexibility.
- Lessen depression and anxiety.
- Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
- Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
- Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling.
- Reduce spasms and cramping.
- Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
- Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.
- Relieve migraine pain.
While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:
- Digestive disorders
- Insomnia related to stress
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Soft tissue strains or injuries
- Sports injuries
- Temporomandibular joint pain
Risks of massage
Most people can benefit from massage. However, massage may not be appropriate if you have:
- Bleeding disorders or take blood-thinning medication
- Burns or healing wounds
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Severe osteoporosis
- Severe thrombocytopenia

The Erchonia Percussor has a patented galvanic motion and variable speed of 1 - 3600 Hz. The percussor will be used on soft tissue injuries that might involve damage to the muscles, ligaments, tendons or fascia/myofascia. With its 7 different adapter heads it will allow us to now break up myofascial adhesions and trigger points, bring blood flow to starving tissues, restore range of motion, reduce pain, improve lymphatic drainage, decrease inflammation, improve function, and reduce muscle spasms.
So basically, the percussor will help to relax your spine so your adjustments will be easier and hold longer, and non-invasive neurostimulation will have enhanced results while making you feel really good!
Intersegmental traction helps mobilize the spinal column while simultaneously and gently stretching ligaments and muscles. It also increases blood flow and oxygen to discs, ligaments, and muscles, thereby improving balance, strength and mobility. This results in easier adjustments as well as allowing the adjustments to last for longer periods of time.
At On The Go Chiro, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognise that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
