Services & Techniques

At Roybal Chiropractic, 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 Spokane 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. Mario Roybal has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.

During your first visit, the doctor will ask you if you have ever been under chiropractic care before and if you have any preferences in the type of adjustment you receive. We offer everything from the lowest force adjustment such as The Activator to the higher force adjustments like Gonstead and Diversified.

The Activator: This is a small hand held instrument that acts like a small mallet. The activator delivers a very specific tap to the area needing an adjustment. This technique is ideal for patients who do not like the twisting, turning and "cracking" associated with other techniques. Activator is also ideal for small children and the elderly as it is a very low force, gentle technique.

Thompson Drop: This technique again allows for a patient to lie face down on a chiropractic table. As the doctor pushes on an area of the body needing to be adjusted, part of the table supporting that part of the body will drop about ½ inch. Many patients like this technique because there is not any twisting or turning involved.

Gonstead and Diversified: These are the standard techniques that most chiropractors use. Some Doctors use much more force and twist than others. These techniques can still be performed very gently and usually are still very painless. However, these techniques do require moving the patient into different positions and may require twisting or turning.

Flexion-Distraction: This technique is designed for people with low back injuries. It is exactly as its name says a flexion and traction technique. With this technique, the Doctor can help the body nourish (maintain) and heal (to a certain extent) it's own discs. This technique has been known to save many chiropractic patients from surgery.

Corrective Exercises

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.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.


Orthotics - Foot levelers

Custom-made Foot Levelers are individualized to stabilize your spine and pelvis by correcting imbalances in your feet- the foundation of your skeletal system. These imbalances may occur even if you're not experiencing foot pain. Though they may go unnoticed, these imbalances contribute to postural misalignments, pain in areas throughout your body and fatigue. The custom-made orthotics, Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers®, provides structural support, yet allows the foot to retain a full range of motion.

We custom fit your stabilizers through an imaging process during your visit in our office. First, you step into a digital foot scan which captures an exact impression of your feet while you are standing, with your full weight on your feet. The doctor then determines which style of orthodic is appropriate for you, and the scan is sent to a laboratory where the stabilizers are created to correct any imbalances found in the three arches of your feet. When your Foot Levelers arrive at the office, we will call to schedule an appointment with you and the doctor will show you how to wear and care for your orthodics.

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. Mario Roybal 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 at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
