What Makes Us Different
Various adjustive techniques
One size does not fit all. Everybody is different and require different adjusting techniques. Dr. Gurney uses
the following adjusting techniques based on individual need:
Thompson (drop table)
Sacral Occipital Technique
Upper Cervical (NUCCA)
Here at Aspen Chiropractic Clinic, we treat the whole body not just the spine. Dr. Gurney has
received advanced training in extremities and is a Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner. That means, if you
have shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle or foot pain, we can probably help.
The bones of the skull move as we breath. Improper movement can lead to headaches and seizures. We
use gentle pressure to restore the proper movement of the skull.
Soft Tissue Therapy
We use the following soft tissue techniques to help the muscles, ligaments, and fascia heal.
These techniques work faster and are more effective than ordinary massage.
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation
Whiplash injuries can cause long-term pain. Dr. Gurney is a Whiplash and Brain Injury Traumatology Graduate. This course, taught by the Spine Research Institute of San Diego, focused on identifying the injuries caused by a car crash and evidence-based treatments. We want you to have the best outcome and get the proper insurance settlement if needed.
Athletes need the fastest recovery possible to get back in the game. Your active lifestyle demands
the same results. As a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician®, Dr. Gurney’s advanced training in sports injuries and
rehabilitation will get you back in action.
In addition to adjusting the arches of the foot, sometimes it is necessary to support your feet with
custom-made orthotics. We make these in our office to insure they properly fit your feet. This conservative approach
helps a lot of conditions like plantar fasciitis, bunions, hammer toes, neuromas, etc.
Dr. Gurney uses special hypo-allergenic and water-proof tape to help support weak ligaments and joints.
You can usually leave it on for a week.
We offer a complete line of therapies that help support the adjustment and accelerate your healing.
Our office has certified and highly skilled massage therapists available to help relax tight muscles, improve
circulation, and improve lymphatic flow. We offer the following types of massage
Computer, job, sleeping, and household activities can cause or aggravate many conditions. We will help you
identify and remove these harmful activities.
There are many natural herbs and supplements that will help things like inflammation, pain, muscle spasms,
and tissue repair. We will gladly make recommendations as needed.
Dr. Gurney uses your muscle strength to help identify the location of the problem and the direction to
adjust it. This way only the areas that need it get adjusted and other areas are not aggravated with unnecessary
adjustments. Specific spinal and extremity adjustments insures that your treatment is specific to your condition. You
won’t feel like you are on an assembly line here!
