Our Chiropractic Techniques

CMRT stands for Chiropractic Manipulative Reflex Technique. This technique recognizes that the spinal nerves exiting your spine not only innervate the surrounding muscle and tissue but also your visceral organs. For instance, CMRT associates the 4th thoracic nerve root with your gall bladder and recognizes that a subluxation with the 4th thoracic vertebra may affect the function of the gall bladder and vice verse, a gall bladder problem may affect the 4th thoracic vertebra. There is a spinal level associated with each visceral organ. T5 – Stomach, T6 – Pancreas and more.

CMRT has a reflex technique associated with each spinal level / organ relationship that helps stimulate function of that organ. It works with the spinal adjustment.
