Micro Alignment Therapy is a whole-body chiropractic adjustment technique that can be used on the spine, peripheral joints (such as knees, elbows, ankles, jaw, etc.) and the cranium. Dr. Barbara James has practiced this chiropractic technique exclusively for the past 30 years, having learned it firsthand from Dr. Robert Young, the renowned Canadian chiropractor who pioneered the technique more than 40 years ago.

Micro Alignment Therapy involves a hands-on analysis of the patient’s joint play and symmetry, and uses small and precise manual adjustments to help correct the body’s alignment. Micro Alignment therapy is suitable for all types of patients, including children and the elderly. It can be used as part of a treatment program for many conditions, including:

  • Postural stress (this includes neck, shoulder and arm tension, and pain and numbness due to sitting for prolonged periods)
  • Headaches
  • Back pain
  • Joint pain (knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, TMJ)
  • Athletic injuries

This breakthrough chiropractic technique uses a lever motion to precisely move joints.

Why learn this technique?

The only reason for doctors to learn new techniques is to help more patients with different problems, especially if they are resistant to traditional adjusting methods and are looking for treatment that works for them.  When only 10% -20% of our health-conscious population receives traditional chiropractic treatment, why would you limit your practice like that? Our aging population is plagued with chronic inflammation resulting in osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and many other lifestyle diseases.  Many discerning patients prefer hands on analysis and chiropractic care.  Micro Alignment Analysis and Therapy sets you apart from other doctors and creates extraordinary new outcomes for your patients.

Why isn’t this taught in chiropractic colleges?

This is not your “typical impulse adjusting technique”. It defies the traditional impulse adjusting paradigm and is not taught in any chiropractic colleges (and may not be in my lifetime). In fact most doctors are genuinely surprised that joints can be moved with such gentleness. Although academic researchers would like you to believe they enhance the acceptance and validity of the profession, they are NOT the source of innovation that can position us as health care leaders.  Innovation comes from those practitioners who respond to the NEED for greater acceptance from our patient population.  I believe a paradigm shift that includes lever adjusting will bring more people under chiropractic care, which is why I want to share this wonderful technique I learned over 25 years ago.

When will you be ready?

Learn how easy it is to adjust all spinal and peripheral joints with a simple pisiform lever motion. I guarantee that patients will appreciate your gentle, unique approach. They are often surprised at their improved alignment and lasting results and are eager to share their experiences and recommend more people for your care. Expand the types of patients and conditions you can treat with Micro Alignment Therapy.
