Our Techniques for Cedar Park and NW Austin

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:


After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints. read more about Diversified»


Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine. read more about Thompson»


Your biggest enemy is gravity. We’ll evaluate how your spine has adapted and take pictures throughout your care to document your progress. read more about Petttibon»

Cox Flexion-Distraction

We use a special table so we can traction your spine, opening up the spacing between spinal vertebrae and relieving pressure to spinal. read more about Cox Flexion-Distraction»


This hand-held instrument applies a series of highly controlled “taps” to misaligned vertebral segments, avoiding the twisting, turning or “cracking” of spinal joints. read more about ArthroStim»

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let Dr. Hilliard know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.

Spinal Decompression

We rely on our back to carry out everyday activities; it is the work horse for us to keep us going. Many of us will experience neck or back pain in our lifetime.

Trauma or repetitive stress puts pressure on the spine and can create a bulging or herniated disc. This can lead to muscle spasms, neck or back pain, radiating pain or numbness in our extremities, or worse loss of muscle control. If you’re considering Surgery STOP!!!!

There now is a non-surgical approach for herniated or bulging disc, facet syndrome, and degenerative disc disease. It is called Spinal Decompression Therapy.

Why Spinal Decompression so effective…

Spinal Disc Decompression is an FDA approved technology that relieves pain by enlarging the space between spinal discs. Spinal Disc Decompression is the reduction of pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through the unloading created by distraction and positioning.

The negative pressure of decompression releases pressure that builds up on spinal discs and nerves, allowing oxygen, nutrients and other healing properties into the herniated and bulging discs and surrounding tissue. Decompression is the only treatment that is truly most effective for severe cases of herniation, degeneration, arthritis, stenosis and pressure on the nerve root.

According to a clinical study performed by the Orthopedic Technological Review in 2004, 86% of cases experienced pain relief with disc decompression. Many patients with lower back syndromes may experience pain relief as early as the third treatment session.

Comparison of pre-treatment MRIs with post-treatment MRIs has shown a 50% reduction in the size and extent of herniation. In clinical studies, 86% of patients reported relief of back pain with our system.

Within the past five years, some private practice clinicians have reported success rates up to 90%. Research has demonstrated that a protocol of 20 sessions over a 6-8 week period is required for optimal healing.

Each treatment session averages 25 to 30 minutes in duration (research has established that optimum results are achieved with sessions that incorporate 10 to 15 decompression/relaxation cycles).

Our Decompress ion units are comfortable and use a combination of restraints, angle position and equipment engineering to isolate the appropriate disc and pressure to create an environment essential for repair. The computer monitors and regulates the rate of pull and the amount of tension that is applied to each individual patient allowing the healing affects to take place. Don’t Risk Surgery!!!!!

Spinal decompression has saved many people from surgery. If you are suffering from a degenerated or herniated disc, don’t risk surgery until you have explored safe and effective spinal decompression.
