Foot Levelers Custom Orthotics
At Riverview Chiropractic, we will perform a digital foot scan on your second visit. This is to ensure that any complaints, spinal or otherwise, are not simply due to problems with your feet. Foot posture creates dynamic forces throughout our bodies and can create compensations through our posture which may be the cause for your visit to us. This quick and easy scan of you feet allows us to eliminate foot problems as a potential cause of symptoms, or to give us acurate measurements of your feet for a prescription for custom made, full length orthotics. Under some circumstances, orthotics may be covered partially by your private health insurance. Please speak to our staff for more information.

Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique
Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique (AMCT), is a system of analysis and correction for spinal and musculoskeletal problems. This technique (and other manual techniques) is practiced by both of our Chiropractors at Riverview Chiropractic. It is a gentle, instrument based system for adjusting the spine and treating muscle tightness. If you do not like the feeling of being adjusted manually (by hand), this technique may suit you very well. AMCT has a long history of research and development of the adjusting tool, The Activator. To read more about AMCT and to see the research papers, please follow the link below.

Denneroll Spinal Orthotics
At Riverview Chiropractic we will perform a posture analysis as part of your initial examination. During this exam we may discover that you may benefit from the use of a Denneroll Spinal Orthotic. These orthotics are placed under your back or neck while you lay down on your back. Your own body weight applies the pressure required to assist in stretching and reshaping the curves in your spine toward a more healthy posture. This in turn reduces postural stress and strain on your body. For more information, please see the link below.
Posture screen is a simple and powerful tool that we use to analyse your posture. We take two photos of you, one facing forward and one from the side. From this we can determine a lot about how your body functions as a whole. Over time we may repeat this analysis to compare your posture over time. This is particularly useful if utilising a Denneroll Spinal Orthotic, so that we may track your progress. For more information, please see the link below.
