Dr. Graves uses multiple chiropractic techniques for spinal adjustments and manipulation to help normalize the nervous system and structural integrity of your spinal alignment. He also specializes in extremity work to include the TMJ (temporomandibular joint). Using techniques to relax the muscles, he adjusts the joints and releases trigger points and muscle tension to accurately reposition the joints.
Soft Tissue Work
Many injuries result in severe tightness or adhesions in the muscle from either not using your muscles or over compensating on the opposite side of your body because of an injury. Dr. Graves' office uses myofascial release and trigger point work to help release the muscle's tightness and help break down any scar tissue that may have been created during the injury.
Nasal Specific Technique
Dr. Graves is one of the few Chiropractors in Colorado who performs the nasal specific technique. If you have allergies, chronic sinus problems such as sinusitis, issues breathing through your nose, snore, or have had a
trauma to the head, you may benefit from this special nasal technique. This technique is a manipulation of the nose that helps open your sinus passages allowing you to breathe more freely. Click Here For More Information

If you complain about knee, back or foot pain, you may need something as simple as an orthotic. Dr. Graves will help choose a full custom orthotic (Sole Supportsorthotics) that takes about two weeks or a modifiable ALINE "off the shelf" orthotic that you can leave the office with the same day of your visit . The orthotics are custom cast by Dr. Graves and will fit into your every day shoes. Orthotics often help heal issues such as knee or foot pain, misalignment of the back or plantar fasciitis by addressing the mechanical structure of your posture, and easing those pain spots throughout your body allowing you to move all day long.
Health & Nutrition Counseling
Each person has their own specific nutritional needs. As part of his holistic approach to treating patients, Dr. Graves will asses your health and lifestyle and help you find what your body needs to perform at its best. Dr. Graves carries Nutri-West, Xymogen, Orthomolecular Biotics and Metagenics supplements, which improve your body's response to your lifestyle. We also test saliva for hormone levels to ensure progesterone, estrogen, DHEA and Cortisol levels are balanced. If necessary, Dr. Graves will give you supplements to balance your hormones.
We are living in a toxic world. We take for granted the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breath comes from a pure source. Every day we are exposed to toxins and metals that over time build up in our body which can overload the systems our body uses to produce energy and detoxify creating an environment for diseases, allergies or immune system breakdown. With the body working at a suboptimal level potential problems include: allergies, arthritis, immune deficiencies, migraines, fatigue, decreased muscle function, loss of flexibility, cancer, heart disease, circulatory problems and memory impairment. The EB-Pro Ion therapy system will begin the process of enabling the body to restore its natural state of balance and health.
