Our Chiropractic Techniques

Sydney Chiropractor Dr. David Dunn

Safe, effective health care that’s tailored to your needs.

Our techniques include chiropractic adjusting techniques that are both done by hand and by a gentle instrument. We also utilize other technology to identify and correct your areas of problem. Below is information on all methods available at our office to improve your health.


This hand-held instrument applies a series of highly controlled “taps” to misaligned vertebral segments. read more»

Therapeutic Laser

We use Theralase laser technology in conjunction with your chiropractic adjustments to get you even better results, or as a stand alone treatment. It works very well on problems such as heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, knee and hip arthritis, hip bursitis, carpal tunnel, TMJ and rotator cuff problems. Theralase lasers are the most technologically advanced therapeutic lasers approved by the FDA, capable of delivering 100 times more healing energy than the most powerful devices of the previous generation. More power means less treatment time, less therapy needed and better pain relief. read more»

Foot Levelers

Issues with your feet can create compensatory problems in back and neck. Custom orthotics can make a dramatic difference. read more»


After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints. This initially involves a case history, along with a thorough examination. read more»

Leander Flexion-Distraction Tables

We use Leander Flexion-Distraction tables so we can traction your spine, opening up the spacing between spinal vertebrae and relieving pressure to the spine.  This technique gives us the ability to place spinal joints in a more normal motion and position without pain or aggravating your condition. By lying on the table, neutralizing the effects of gravity, we’re able to gently separate spinal joints and move them through a more normal range of motion. Patients find this surprisingly pleasant. We find it powerfully effective.

Subluxation Station

This technology helps us assess your nervous system by measuring tiny amounts of heat and electrical differences along your spine. read more»

Neuromechanical Adjusting Technology

Instead of the traditional thrust by hand, a handheld instrument is used that introduces the precise energy needed for optimum correction. This gives our patients another treatment option other than manual therapy if they prefer. read more»

What does an adjustment feel like?

We’ve treated babies just weeks old (including Dr. David’s own two children) to patients in their late 90s, so we can provide appropriate care to any age and type of condition. Our adjustments are very safe and comfortable.
