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 more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Duggan has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.

Applied Kinesiology

Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing combined with other standard methods of diagnosis. The triad of health lists the three basic causes of health problems. They are structural, chemical, and mental, with structure as the base of the triad. Literally, all health problems, whether functional or pathological, are involved with one part or all parts of the triad. The physician who is aware of the triad of health, and evaluates every patient for all three sides, increases his ability to find the basic underlying cause of a patients health problem. AK skills are developed and approved by the International College of Applied Kinesiology Board of Standards. These skills are refined from many disciplines including Chiropractic, Osteopathy, Medicine, Dentistry, Acupuncture, Biochemistry, Psychology, Homeopathy, and Naturopathy etc. Members of these professions share knowledge through the publications and conferences of the ">International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK).

Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed for them 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 by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be imbalanced or strained by trauma, improper alignment and over or under development. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and improve 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 of our patients is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness in a collaborative effort.

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? Dr.Duggan can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.

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 for school physicals, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace. Remember, FORM = FUNCTION

Disc Rehydration System





The Pneu-Vibe is an intermittent traction table with a built in vibrational platform. The vibration produces muscle relaxation which prevents splinting and guarding of the affected area. This allows for increased effectiveness of the traction, without increased force of traction. The traction creates a negative pressure, attracting water back into the disc. The combined effects of the Pneu-Vibe, our nutrition and laser protocols, and therapeutic exercises create a unique combination of care to speed up healing and increase strength and flexibility.

**We are 1 of only 2 clinics in Colorado that offer this system.**

The studies done by Pneumex have so far been overwhelmingly positive. The table therapy has been shown to increase:

  •    Bone Density
  •    Disc Space & Hydration
  •    BMR
  •    Leg Extension & Biceps Curl Strength

To decrease:

  •    Body Fat
  •    Blood Pressure (Systolic & Diastolic)
  •    Cortisol
  •    Cellulite


In addition to these benefits, the MRIs of 7 of 8 patients in a 30 visit pilot study showed an average increase of 18%- 38% in hydration levels of the affected intervertebral disc(s). All 8 patients reported they were PAIN FREE at the end of the study. (All had  long term chronic conditions.)  All three of the patients who volunteered for the post MRI showed a 100% reduction in disc bulge and a significant increase in dehydration.

                BEFORE                            AFTER


Note: (Before) The dark colored L5-S1 Disc indicates that it is dehydrated. It should be more white like the one above it. Also note the bulge sticking out into the white space that is the spinal cord. This pressure on the spinal cord can create radiation of pain and symptoms in the lower extremities, as well as possible weakness in the musculature from blocked nerve pathways.

Note: (After) Notice that the disc color is lighter, indicating rehydration of the disc. The bulge has also receded, relieving the pressure on the spinal cord, relieving pain and restoring function to the areas supplied by the nerves involved.
