Chiropractic Care

Our Approach

Care Starts Here

20240129_154205Every single aspect of the care we provide is focused on the nervous system, and promoting what’s called neuroplasticity. Now that’s a really big, nerdy word – but it simply means ensuring that the body’s most important system is able to rest, relax, heal, grow, and adapt.

Those five things are absolutely essential to everyone, from a tiny infant who’s supposed to be asleep more than awake, to kids and parents who need every bit of rest, recharging and resilience we can get in this crazy world.

As you’ll see with our unique 5 step clinical process, everything starts with our doctor taking the time to truly listen to your concerns, working together to set goals for your care, and diving deep with the most modern technology in the world that allows us to truly assess exactly where the nervous system is stressed, stuck (subluxated), exhausted, and not functioning properly.

If that sounds too simple and too good to be true – it’s because it is.

We take the time to explain and educate our patients each step of the way, and the path to healing, restoration, and full health and happiness for your family will be straightforward and never complicated!

Dr. Ashley is trained in multiple adjusting techniques, allowing for personalized care for each practice member. Our neurologically-focused approach to care addresses the fact that stress on the nerves can negatively impact not just joints and muscles within the body, but different organs and other major systems as well. Analyzing your body from this root-cause approach allows the adjustment to be incredibly effective and far-reaching! 

Subluxations, or areas of stress and tension within the nervous system, occur due to a variety of stressors that we encounter on a daily basis. These subluxations impact the function of our nervous system, and can ultimately build up, leading to symptoms. Our adjustments focus on finding and eliminating these areas of subluxation and stress, allowing your body to eliminate excess tension, decrease symptoms, and permit your nervous system to function properly without any interference.

Our Five Step Process

Consultation Scheduling

STEP ONE is scheduling a Consultation with our incredible Novo Doctor. Right away you’ll notice a big difference from traditional doctors, as your Novo Doc dives deep into your child’s case history unlike any other professional out there, really listening and taking the time to find the root causes of your child’s health challenges.

Many parents report that already after this first step in our clinical process they feel excited and confident about care, because it’s the first time they’ve actually felt heard and found answers as to why their child is struggling in the first place.

Insight Scans

STEP TWO is doing a deep dive into the function of your child’s central nervous system, using an incredible set of technology called the INSiGHT Scans. They consist of three (3) individual scans that will find, measure, and quantify how much stress and tension may be stuck in your child’s autonomic nervous system.

Three of the main things these scans are looking for are subluxation, dysautonomia, and vagus nerve dysfunction – which are all just terms that mean a stressed out, worn out, and dysfunctional nervous system.

Care Plan

STEP THREE is figuring out an exact, customized Care Plan that fits your child’s exact needs. This is one of the places that our Novo Clinical Care really is in a league of its own, utilizing a first-of-its-kind neurologically-based care planning system that is now taught and used by 1000+ Pediatric Chiropractors worldwide!

This Novo Care Planning System blends together your child’s unique case history findings (traumas, toxins, illnesses, etc.) along with our neurological exam and INSiGHT Scan findings, to then be able to tell us exactly what frequency of adjustments and duration of care your child needs. Everything is fully personalized and customized to that exact patient, no “one size fits all” or “cookie cutter” approach like is found in most of health care.

Report Of Findings

STEP FOUR is sitting down with your Novo Doc at what’s called the Report of Findings visit, and going over the INSiGHT Scan and exam findings, your child’s personalized care plan, and having every single one of your questions and concerns answered. This is such an exciting visit for families, as they finally have a clear action plan to get their child’s health + healing back on track!


STEP FIVE is getting started with your child’s Adjustments, which are safe, gentle, and get right to work on relieving tension and stress from your child’s nervous system! While many parents may initially get nervous about starting something new like chiropractic care for their kids and family, they are immediately put at ease when they see how gentle and easy-going things are with neurologically-focused, pediatric chiropractic care from the team of Pediatric Chiropractors at Novo Chiropractic! Get ready for lots of laughs, relaxation, better sleep, and some serious healing!

Our Techniques

Torque Release Technique/Tonal

Effective, low-force techniques that are often utilized in the office. These type of adjustments use the aid of a small handheld instrument and involve no twisting or popping. TRT/Tonal works to normalize the “tone” of the nervous system, helping your body to back out of it’s “fight or flight” stress mode.

Webster Technique

A specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that balances the pelvis and sacrum of an expecting mama; a necessity for optimal baby positioning. This technique requires advanced training and certification, and is backed by studies indicating that benefits can include a more natural, shorter and more comfortable labor + delivery. The Webster technique is safe, gentle, and effective, often allowing your baby to turn into an optimal position on their own following even a handful of adjustments.

In addition to Webster Technique certification, Dr. Ashley utilizes training from ‘Spinning Babies’ workshops in order to better serve her expecting patients. Spinning Babies is a combination of positions and exercises that are performed in the office and taught for use at-home, as to further aid in proper fetal positioning.


This hands-on technique is often what comes to mind when envisioning a “traditional chiropractic adjustment.” Dr. Ashley utilizes a variety of analysis techniques to determine exactly where the adjustment is needed, and will perform the adjustment using her hands, or an activator, a gentle hand-held tool, perfect for pediatric patients + other specific populations.

The technique that Dr. Ashley chooses for your care will be thoroughly discussed with you prior to adjustment, and will be chosen based on your specific history, preference, symptoms, and goals. All of our adjustments are provided on a case by case basis and are highly personalized to your unique body.
