Chiropractic Techniques & Therapies We Use

Austin chiropractor Dr. McHone has extensive training and experience in each of the following chiropractic techniques. After carefully evaluating the needs of each patient, whether a person needs relief from back pain, sciatica, a migraine headache, or any other painful condition, he employs the technique best suited to the situation.

Rehabilitation and Strengthening

Dr. McHone incorporates rehabilitation and strengthening into every treatment plan. Every rehabilitation plan designed by Dr. McHone is customized to the needs and goals of each patient. The plans almost always include low-tech rehabilitative exercises using kettle bells, foam rollers, stretching bands, and other standard gym equipment to enable patients to perform their exercises at home or their own gym.

Activator Method

An Activator is a small, spring-loaded chiropractic device that Dr. McHone uses to deliver a targeted, gentle thrust to correct spinal misalignments. As this method utilizes a small hand tool, the adjustments are gentle and also free of the "cracking noise" heard during traditional adjustments.

McKenzie Exercises

Developed by New Zealand doctor, Robin McKenzie, this is a total system of evaluating, treating, and preventing pain that uses an array of gentle exercises. This form of treatment relies heavily on the patient's participation in these exercises for healing and strengthening.
