Our Chiropractic Techniques

Our chiropractic techniques help patients find or rediscover a sense of balance, health, and wellness in their life. We personally tailor a chiropractic and wellness program specifically targeted at your needs, using the least invasive yet highly-effective techniques and services.

Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction and adjustments utilizing state-of-the-art chiropractic techniques, which are safer, more comfortable, and more effective than ever.

Dr. Chris Harlan has years of training, expertise, and experience helping patients treat pain and get relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions that originate from the spine. He’s also helped patients use chiropractic care to prevent injuries, as well as achieve better overall health and wellness.

Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients how to perform special “blueprint” exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body, which may be causing pain. May of these corrective exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan.

In the case of pain caused by muscles and tissues being used improperly, and causing injuries over time, we provide corrective exercises and stretches to help you feel better and achieve balance and health.

Needle and Electrical Acupuncture

Dr. Harlan uses acupuncture as a safe, gentle, and quick method to treat a variety of ailments related to a blockage of your body’s energy, or “Qi,” and promote healing speed. We stimulate traditional Chinese acupuncture points by using either microcurrent electricity or traditional needs.

Coordinated with chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture can help a variety of ailments including digestive, emotional, eye, ear, nose and throat, gynecological, musculoskeletal, neurological, and respiratory disorders.

Spinal and Postural Screenings

There’s a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure — and your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings performed by a trained and experienced chiropractor can help reveal important information about your health and unlock the door to improved well-being.

As part of our community outreach in Overland Park, KS and the Kansas City area, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs, and workplaces.
