ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based myofascial technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. ART is the premiere soft tissue technique for the IronMan events and the technique of choice for several professional sports teams.

These tables release in a way that allows them to flex at the waist or to extend horizontally for spinal traction, or both flexion and distraction. Spinal traction mobilizes the lumbar spine, targeting disc disorders and degenerative changes that may be compressing the nerve, causing numbness or tingling in the extremities.
Dr. Raeburn’s extensive background and education in the management of sports injuries carries over into everyday practice. Here at Overlook Chiropractic we believe that the proper use of exercise and stretching is a vital part of any musculoskeletal treatment plan.Therapeutic exercise can be performed with foam rolls, Swiss balls, Therabands or often nothing else besides good old gravity.
This low-force approach is an alternative to the diversified adjustment and is preferred for several acute conditions and severe osteoporosis.
Drop piece tables use the momentum of a cock-up piece and allows for the patient’s own momentum to mobilize the joint and deliver the adjustment. This is a great middle of the road technique with regards to force and is great for patients who have difficult areas to adjust.
Electrical stimulation and ultrasound can be combined to allow for the dual benefit of softening a structure while stimulating it simultaneously. Combo therapy is highly effective in treating old scar tissue and restoring range of motion.
Dr. Raeburn is a proficient manual adjuster using what is known as a Diversified technique. This is the classic chiropractic adjustment where the doctor uses his hands to apply a specific force to a joint either in the spine or in the extremities in order to mobilize and stimulate the joint complex.
Here at the clinic we are equipped with an inversion table (shown) and a separate cervical traction unit. Traction involves applying a force, usually gravity, in order to stretch soft tissues and decompress the cervical and lumbar spine. By increasing the IVF (intravertebral foramen) or spaces between vertebra, the pressure on the nerve is relieved.
