Pargeter Chiropractic draws its name from licensed chiropractor Dr. Jason Pargeter, who harnesses low-pain healing techniques to alleviate pressure on vertebrae. During the initial consultation and exam, the doctor scans the body for imbalances, and a set of x-rays checks the structural integrity of internal Jenga towers. The doctor uses the information amassed in the report of findings to inform the therapeutic treatments over the course of three subsequent visits, each of which includes an acupuncture treatment, intersegmental traction therapy, and an adjustment.
During the acupuncture session, which can be performed with or without needles, skilled hands gently trigger strategic sites that decompress nerve trunks, promote energy flow, and redirect the course of any trapped pinballs. Both the intersegmental-traction-therapy and chiropractic-adjustment sessions aim to reverse subluxations—spinal-nerve stress—by applying targeted pressure to restore deviated vertebrae. Pargeter’s compendium of frequently asked questions lists which conditions might find relief through chiropractics and details when the practice of chiropractics began.
Doctor of Chiropractic Jason Pargeter, a graduate of Cleveland Chiropractic College, relies on gentle adjustment techniques to realign misplaced vertebrae. One such technique, the prone specific technique, does so without twisting the patient's torso or back. These patient-minded movements pair with x-rays and therapeutic services such as needle or needleless acupuncture to foster overall wellness.
