Services & Techniques

At Renquist Chiropractic and Acupuncture, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Salem office.

Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Renquist has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.



This instrument capitalizes upon the natural feedback cycle which your nervous system uses to organize itself. It delivers a rapid series of recoiling thrusts to target tissues. This produces movement which in turn, creates a barrage of different impulses - information which your nervous system can use to modify dysfuntional patterns.

By utilizing the same mechanisms that your nervous system naturally uses to control biomechanics, corrections can be achieved using reduced forces.


This is a new approach to treat your muscle and ligament problems and other related myofascial conditions. The instrument delivers waves of precussive impulses deep into the tissues of your body. It is an effective way to release tension in your muscles. The compression waves promote an increase of cirulation and lymphatic flow which decreases spasm in your muscle.

Corrective Exercises and Rehabilitation

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.

Lifestyle Advice

We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.

Nutritional Counseling

We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Renquist can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.

Myofascial Release 

Myofascial release therapy releases tension from the fibrous bands of connecting tissue (fascia). Myofascial release therapy aims to free constrictions or blockages in the fascia, thereby alleviating problems with connective tissue scarring or injury. Myofascial release therapy utilizes the hands to perform gentle, kneading manipulation that softly stretches, softens, lengthens and realigns fascia.

Spinal & Postural Screenings

Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
