This combination provides a powerful strategy to alleviate unwanted health conditions, which may not have resolved using a singular approach.
Dr. Zygelman has studied many chiropractic techniques and nutritional approaches. Rather than using any one technique, he has drawn on what he feels is the best information from the various sources.

Although the Doctor’s initial training was in traditional chiropractic manipulation, he mostly utilizes the Activator Method Technique. This technique is very light force using a hand held thrusting instrument delivering a gentle force, which is suitable for the very young, seniors and very fragile. The gentle nature allows the Doctor to do manipulations early on with acute conditions. It is especially appealing to people who are reluctant to have more forceful joint manipulative treatments. People are often surprised at how well it works given the gentleness of treatment. Some people prefer the more traditional approach and that too is available.
We also employ Applied Kinesiology Analysis to determine when, where, how and sometimes as important, to know when not to treat certain areas.
