Services & Techniques

Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, Dr. Molly, Dr. Nancy, and the Back to Health Family Chiropractic staff emphasize improving your overall health and wellness by reducing the likelihood of pain and illness in the first place - before illness, disease, or pain becomes an issue. Any poll will tell you that an overwhelming majority of people, be they chiropractic patients now or formerly, nutrition response patients, or Standard Process whole food supplement users would rather be healthy and avoid illness if they could than the alternative.

This is the reason for both the sudden surge in popularity among chiropractic medicine, overall health and wellness clinics, and holistic natural medicine in general.

As many of our current and former patients will tell you, the chiropractic professionals at Dr. Molly's Back to Health wellness clinic have time and time again taken patients from a low quality of life, riddled with pain and discomfort, and offered a total rediscovery of life that was previously thought long lost. For others, they come in feeling good and leave surprised they never realized how out of alignment they were!

All that said, a frequently asked question we hear is: "what is chiropractic care about? What 'technology' could there be? Isn't it just hands-on and cracking noises!" This misconception runs far and wide and against the grain of our mission to truly make everyone feel their optimal health and best self. So let's take a look at what you've missed in the world of chiropractic medicine - and feel free to click through to learn more about each topic below.

An Activator chiropractic tool (4th generation)
The Activator Tool

The Activator tool or Activator method of chiropractic medicine is, in short, what sets doctors like Dr. Molly and Dr. Nancy apart from other chiropractors in the Burlington, VT area. We aren't saying manual manipulation (the alternative method; e.g. the "cracking," hands-on method) doesn't have merit, nor do we imply that some chiropractic doctors in Vermont are very talented thusly, but our personal belief is that the Activator works better, safer, gentler, and it's what we use on ourselves and our children.

Where hands-on, manual manipulation uses force and general areas (the size of one's hand, for example) and requires a lot of snapping and popping sounds, the Activator Method uses speed rather than force, and utilizes precision instead of generality.

Corrective exercises
Corrective Exercises

At Back to Health, Dr. Molly and Dr. Nancy not only adjust spines, we also teach our patients how to maintain the work they've put in with us. We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problems while in the comfort of their home, office, or anywhere with a few minutes and a little free space. These customized exercise recommendations can help improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction; in addition to skeletal misalignment and spinal sublaxation, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use, and the Doctor-recommended exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.

Lifestyle Advice

Through their combined six decades of chiropractic practice in VT and New York, our doctors often find its helpful to coach our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health and wellness challenges. At Back to Health our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most, be it fishing, hunting, hiking, yoga, sports, or whatever else you enjoy. Unlike many medical personalities, the Back to Health staff treats each patient as a unique person, not just a client ID. Part of our promise is to help each patient reach their optimal, true health and wellness goals, and part of that is a collaborative effort between our doctors, patient advocates, and our patients.

Standard Process whole food supplements are only sold through medical professionals
Standard Process & Nutrition Response Testing

One of the biggest boons to the lives of both the Back to Health staff and the patients who take part in our our nutrition program is the use of Standard Process whole food supplements and nutrition response testing, one of the best ways to take your health and wellness to a whole new level of optimal.
