The word "chiropractic" comes from the Greek words cheir (hand) and praxis (action) and literally means "done by hand." Instead of prescribing drugs or performing surgeries, chiropractors use manual treatments of the spine and joints, along with therapies and lifestyle changes to allow the body's natural state of health to fully express itself. Here are some of the manipulation techniques you may come across at a chiropractic office. 

  • Myofascial Release

    Not all pain is caused by obvious injuries like broken bones or cuts. Some pain may stem from the myofascial tissues. These tough membranes are wrapped around your muscles to provide support and connect them to other parts of the body. When myofascial tissue becomes stiff, it may restrict movement in

  • Drop-Table Technique

    Forceful spinal manipulation is not always necessary to treat conditions of the lower back, mid-back and neck. Gentle chiropractic treatment, such as drop table techniques, involves less powerful spinal maneuvering and slower, low-velocity movements that allow the affected joint to stay within its passive

  • Active Release Techniques

  • "From Dr. Hudak right throughout the entire staff…The Best !!!"

  • "I went to chiropractic care because I was in terrible pain in my lower back. I was having this issue for about three months, then I saw an orthopedic doctor but was not a surgery candidate. I then had some physical therapy but unfortunately it did not help and I was told to change my line of work. I had to change from full time to modified duty at work because my job is very physical. All I was able to do was lay in bed if I was not at work most of the day, I had pain walking and pain sitting. I started chiropractic care and I had relief within the first week (2-3 visits). I've never seen a chiropractor before so I didn't know what to expect, but now I am back to work with no limitations. My advice to you would be that it works on so many conditions and Dr. Hudak is fantastic!! You would be in great hands because his staff is terrific, warm and inviting. I look forward to all of my appointments now."

  • "I came into Shoreline Chiropractic with extreme back pain. Since I started to go to Dr. John Hudak, my pain has almost completely gone away. My advice that I would give to people who are new to chiropractic care is that it really works and also to stick with the treatment."
