Chiropractic services

Dr. Evan and Dr. Bobbie Frisk are both excellent chiropractors that use a gentle hands on approach.  They are proficient in many different adjustment techniques enabling them to best meet your specific needs.They  treat a variety of misalignment's and injuries for pain and discomfort. 

By assessing your individual circumstances our chiropractors use their expertise and clinical experience to help determine a range of approaches most suitable to your condition and body-type.

Our chiropractors will discuss treatment options with you before care commences, to ensure that you are comfortable with the technique approach recommended for you. We understand you may have individual preferences and will try to accommodate your requests.

Regardless of which technique approach is agreed upon, you can rest assured that chiropractic treatment has an excellent safety record when applied gently and carefully by skilled practitioners.

You will find that Peninsula Health Center makes every attempt to stay current with the latest technological advances with chiropractic treatment. Current adjusting techniques are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before.

Below is a brief description of the primary adjustment techniques we use.

Each method of treatment has its advantages and your chiropractor will work with you to determine if one or a combination of several methods are right for you.
Manual Manipulation/Adjustments
This technique is the most commonly used of all chiropractic techniques and is the one probably most familiar to patients.

It involves a quick, yet gentle, pressure to the joint using the chiropractor’s hands. It often results in an audible ‘pop’ – this sound is created by the change of pressure within the joint that results in gas bubbles being released.
Instrument Adjustments (Activator/Impulse)
Often the gentlest methods of adjusting the spine. These are techniques that include the use of instruments to deliver an adjustment to the patient. Instead of the manipulating/adjusting forces being delivered by hand, force is generated with the small hand held instrument that delivers a lighter, but quicker, pressure.

Instrument adjusting can be used as a primary treatment method for patients or a selective method for patients who may not desire manual manipulation/adjustment or where manual manipulation/adjustment may be contraindicated.

This low-force chiropractic technique is so gentle it ensures a safe and comfortable experience for all ages, as well as patients with osteoporosis or arthritis.
ACTIVATOR® ADJUSTING INSTRUMENT:
The ACTIVATOR® adjusting instrument provides a gentle low-force approach to chiropractic care. The technique has been used safely on patients of all ages since the late 1960's, bringing relief to people with a variety of health concerns.

Because of its effectiveness and gentle nature, the Activator Instrument has grown to become the world’s most widely-used instrument chiropractic technique.
IMPULSE ADJUSTING INSTRUMENT®:
The IMPULSE ADJUSTING INSTRUMENT® is the most technically advanced chiropractic adjusting instrument in the profession today.

The Impulse Adjusting Instrument is specifically tuned to the natural frequency of the body allowing the creation of more bone movement with less force and simultaneously stimulates greater populations of nerve receptors for more effective adjustments and better results.
Flexion Distraction Therapy
A gentle, non-force adjusting procedure utilizing a specialized table that provides flexion and traction to specific areas of the spine to aid in the re-creation of lost movement, the decompression and realignment of the spine.

This technique is primarily utilized to manage disc injuries, scoliosis, osteoarthritis and to increase mobility of spinal joints. This approach has been shown to be a very effective technique in relieving spinal and leg pain.
Drop Table Adjustments
This specialized chiropractic technique uses a special table with sections that move up and down under your body to gently unlock specific segments of your spine.

Drop table adjusting allows chiropractors to minimize the force used for the adjustment and avoids the twisting positions that can accompany other techniques.

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, our chiropractors may use a variety of adjunctive techniques including muscle stretching procedures, soft tissue therapy, exercise recommendations and as well as advice about posture and lifestyle.
Low Level Laser Therapy
The newest technology helping patients feel better, faster…
Peninsula Health Center has been offering laser therapy for the past 6 years, as the perfect compliment to chiropractic care. It has been shown to be an extremely useful addition and great supplement to chiropractic treatment.
What is Low Level Laser Therapy?
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) also called “cold laser” is the application of red and near infrared light over injuries to improve soft tissue healing, reduce inflammation and relieve pain.

It is a highly effective treatment for acute soft tissue injuries, chronic pain syndromes and has shown to be particularly helpful in stubborn, persistent, and “difficult-to-treat” conditions.

LLLT has been used for many years on sports injuries, arthritic joints, neuropathic pain syndromes, back and neck pain.
What conditions may benefit from Low Level Laser Therapy?
LLLT has been successfully used to manage many conditions such as:

  • Soft tissue injuries e.g. sprains/strains
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic pain syndromes e.g. RSI, frozen shoulder, chronic neck and low back pain
  • Nerve pain (Neuropathic pain) e.g. from disc injuries
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Tennis elbow/Golfer’s elbow
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Sports injuries
  • Ankle sprains
  • Knee joint injuries e.g – ligament sprains
How does cold laser therapy work?
In a nutshell, Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) causes tissues to heal faster.

Specifically, LLLT works at the cellular level. Human cells produce a natural chemical known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is used to run the body and heal tissue. All of our body’s activities result from the use of ATP, it’s like fuel to a car.

LLLT stimulates a micro-structure within the cells called the mitochondria to produce tremendously higher amounts of ATP (fuel for our cells). Thus with more ATP at the cellular level, tissues heal faster, and therefore relief comes quicker.

Is low level laser therapy safe?

LLLT therapy is not harmful. Low level lasers operate at very low levels of power and unlike high-power lasers have insufficient strength to heat or damage human tissue. It is also completely safe for people of all ages.

How many treatments will I need?

Research studies suggest the benefits of LLLT are accumulative – it may take several treatments for the results to become evident. Total number of treatments needed depends upon the condition being treated, the severity of the condition, and each patient’s individual response.

How does laser light differ from “natural” light?

‘Natural’ light (including sunlight, common light bulbs, LEDs) emits incoherent light, in almost all directions, over a wide spectrum of wavelengths.

Laser light is coherent (high and low points of waves are lined up). The light waves from a laser are parallel (travel in the almost the same direction) to produce a small, concentrated beam of light. Laser light is monochromatic, meaning a laser emits light at one or more specific wavelengths rather than a wide range of wavelengths.

Different wavelengths of light have different biological effects. Low-level lasers emit wavelengths of light in the visible red to near-infrared range which penetrate deep into the tissues.
