Chiropractic is a treatment of neuromuscular disorders especially for spinal adjustments
When you have a joint that hurts – whether it’s a rib out of place, a rolled ankle or chronic back pain – we know it affects more than just the injured joint. That’s because the soft tissue, muscles, bones and joints are all interconnected. What affects one usually affects all. For this reason, Dr. Brent Manley and personal trainer Mike Jensen work together at Eastside Chiropractic Services to give their patients a more complete treatment plan than either could do alone.
Dr. Manley uses several treatment techniques depending on a patient’s needs. The first is called Diversified and is the most common technique. This method is a combination of a number of techniques to achieve optimal results.

The second method, developed by Dr. Clarence Gonstead, a pioneer in the field of chiropractic, is called the Gonstead method. It is a full spine technique of adjusting that includes x-ray analysis. “Dr. Gonstead promoted scientific research through his clinic and was known to have patients come from around the globe for treatments,” Dr. Manley explains.
The third method is called Receptor-Tonus and is a treatment technique created by Dr. Nimmo. This method involves the soft tissue and muscles as well as joints. It locates the source of the pain and removes it through stretching and pressure. “It is based on the premise that injury to the body affects muscles which in turn affect joint movement and cause pain,” says Dr. Manley. “By improving muscle function through treatment, the joints function better and pain is reduced.
As the receptor-tonus method explains, there is often a direct correlation between muscles and joint pain. This is where Mike Jensen, an American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Certified Exercise Physiologist with a degree in exercise science, comes in. He offers customized personal training to clients as well as tailored stretching and strengthening exercises that address each patient’s unique needs. Having him at Eastside Chiropractic gives Dr. Manley the unique ability to send his clients directly to a personal trainer before or after their adjustment. This gives patients a better chance at reducing pain more quickly because they are addressing the problem in a more holistic way versus doing one or the other separately.
