How is Network Care different from traditional chiropractic methods?

Network Spinal (NS) evolved from Network Chiropractic, a method developed in the mid-1980s by Dr. Donald Epstein to help patients resolve tension patterns that occur when the spinal cord is over-stretched during physical injury or when the body is under mental or emotional stress.

Instead of adjusting or aligning your spine through forceful manipulation, Dr. Luke Schmelzle typically uses very light pressure on specific parts of your spine (your neck and sacrum in most cases). The pressure causes a wave-like movement and breathing pattern to occur along your spine, releasing tension and helping your body to unwind. No twisting, popping, or cracking is necessary.
