Supporting Health & Wellness
We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing “state of the art” chiropractic techniques. The Active Family doctors have years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients find relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health and wellness.
Spinal Decompression is the evolution of traction therapy. If it is appropriate for your course of care, spinal decompression may be recommended to help nourish the intervertebral discs, decrease radiating symptoms (such as sciatica), and assist in the speed of recovery while undergoing structural care. Dr. Tyler will be able to customize any decompression therapy to meet your specific needs, helping in acute and chronic problems and adapting the machine to work with neck or lower back.
If decompression is included in your care plan, you may anticipate spending an additional 15-30 minutes in the office once a week.
In a recent study of 219 patients with herniated discs and degenerative disc disease, 86 percent who completed the therapy showed immediate improvement and resolution of their symptoms; 92 percent improved overall; five patients (2 percent) relapsed within 90 days of initial treatment.(Glonis T, Groteke E. Spinal Decompression. Orth Tech Review 5(6):36-39; Nov-Dec 2003.)
If you have suffered from any of these issues and not seen an improvement in other offices, this may be a great option for you.

Insight Subluxation Station
We utilize a state-of-the-art system in our office that allows us to measure and record how well a body is functioning, and how it is responding to care. This scan is preformed during the initial examination and may be repeated as you progress through care, allowing you and the doctor to compare pre and post results. It’s one thing to feel better while under care, and we want you to feel better, but it is our aim to work with your body and allow it to function at a higher level.
Over time, daily stress can change a person’s health. Muscles along the spine can shorten, spinal joints can begin to lock while postures twist and shift. Most importantly, the nerves inside the spine that connect the brain to the body start to be affected. The spinal nerve tension begins to change the core of your body.
The chiropractic “COREscore” is a powerful and simple way to measure and report the tension in your spinal nerves. Using three important measurements we are able to assess the stress present in your body (conscious or not). Heart rate variability determines your overall ability to adapt to the daily stress you encounter. Muscle tone and balance evaluates the control of the muscles that support and move your spine. Organ and gland control assesses the part of your nervous system that helps control your organs, glands, and blood vessels, and can be measured through the paraspinal temperature. These three scans are quick, easy, and non-invasive, allowing Dr. Tyler to accurately measure and assess your health as you continue to reach and exceed your health goals.
This technology is certified by the Space Foundation and is used on Super Bowl champions, Olympic Gold medalists and star athletes around the world. Dr. Tyler is excited to bring this technology to Longmont and offer it to families interested in improving their overall wellness as well as to athletes who are looking to improve their health in a measurable and predictable manner.

At Active Family Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special “blueprint” exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan.
In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.

Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient’s specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to “coach” our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges.
The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
