Ada Family Chiropractic offers many different types of adjusting techniques, including traditional "hands on" manual adjustments, such as Diversified and Thompson, as well as "low force" techniques, including Activator and SOT. While our manual adjustments are delivered with specificty and relative gentleness, there are also a range of alternative techniques which allow for correction without the "clicking" or "popping" sounds. Treatment can therefore be catered to better accommodate each patient’s individual health needs. We adjust the spine, as well as the extremities, to restore proper function to all the joints of the body.
We utilize a variety of soft tissue techniques, including myofascial release and instrument-assisted soft tissue treatment, to further speed the healing process by promoting the removal of inflammation and breaking down scar tissue.
We offer a range of physiotherapy treatments to help speed the healing process. These include: ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, interferential therapy, ice, and heat.
The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions.
KinesioTape is used to:
Acupuncture is a system of medicine that dates back over 5000 years, and has been proven effective to treat over 2,000 conditions. There is abundant research supporting Acupuncture, and typically 8-9 out of 10 patients respond favorably to treatment. Dr. Bonnie utilizes both needle acupuncture, as well as electrical stimulation of acupuncture points… so needles are not required. For more information visit http://www.acupuncture.com/
Dr. Bonnie is trained in Webster Technique, which is specific for analyzing and adjusting pregnant women in order to restore proper joint movement and to balance the muscles and ligaments of the pelvis. This helps to reduce the causes of intrauterine constraint and allows the baby to be in the best possible position for birth.

"If a woman is pregnant her needs are increased, because the nervous system of a woman directs the creation of the fetus and the embryo to begin with. When a woman receives adjustments during her pregnancy, there is also better delivery, less back pain, healthier children, and less chance of a miscarriage" ~Sir Jay Holder, M.D., D.C., Ph.D., of Miami, Floida
Chiropractic care has a powerful impact on children and infants. Just like adults, children also experience many traumatic events and forces throughout their lives that can cause improper joint function. Some of these include: childbirth, falls, accidents, sports, heavy backpacks, etc. Children receiving regular chiropractic adjustments have strengthened immune systems, fewer behavioral problems, and sleep better, just to name a few of the "side effects". The adjustments allow the spine and nervous system to grow and develop optimally and reduce future health problems. But don't worry parents, we won't "pop" your little ones. Our pediatric adjustments are gentle and safe. To learn more please visit www.icpa4kids.org.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams – about the weight of a nickel – practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it's effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

Chronic inflammation is being increasingly recognized as the root cause of many “modern” diseases. Causing pain, fatigue, cognitive decline, and depression, chronic inflammation has reached epidemic proportions. Managing inflammation on a long-term basis promotes healing and natural pain management. We offer sound nutritional advice and quality nutritional supplements from Anabolic Laboratories, as well as Homeopathic Remedies from White Dove Healing Arts.
Anabolic Labs is a pharmaceutical company who also manufactures nutritional supplements that are subject to the same quality standards as their pharmaceuticals.

Lack of proper care, ill-fitting shoes and general foot neglect are responsible for the majority of foot problems. It's important to understand your feet have direct impact on the rest of your body and support you with each step. A small abnormality in foot function can have a large impact on joints higher up in the body, causing pain and discomfort.
Orthotics are inserts that comfortably fit into shoes; they are designed to support and improve the functioning of feet. Health care practitioners will prescribe orthotics to patients suffering from chronic foot or lower limb problems or to athletes to help maximize performance during sport.
