Services & Techniques
Our bodies are made to be well, not sick. We need to take the stress off the body and nervous system by realigning the spine, make up for past nutritional deficiencies and if possible, alter life style. Then, and only then, will we achieve true health potential. My mission is to see that this happens to you. At Leucadia 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 Encinitas office.
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.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just 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%. We also have an exercise/therapy area in our back room set up for teaching patients exercises specific to their condition and have extremely professional and knowledgable personal trainers in the area to whom we confidently refer our patients.
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 provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients' return to optimal health.

What is acupuncture?
Over 12 million people in the United States use acupuncture as a way to relieve pain and address illness rather than mask symptoms with drugs. It is completely natural, and it has been practiced for 5,000 years! It treats virtually every condition known, without drugs or surgery. It is 100% painless.
Is acupuncture safe?
Acupuncture is a safe procedure with no side effects. There is only you getting healthier and pain free.
What should I expect during a treatment?
First, an acupuncture consultation is performed to determine the best way to treat your condition. Then, in a very relaxed environment, pre-sterilized tiny needles are inserted at special points corresponding to your symptoms. Relaxation, serenity, and a sense of warmth accompany the procedure. It is not unusual for the patient to experience a calmness that they have never felt before! Your Acupuncturist, Corrine Roby, has been practicing in the Encinitas area for the last 15 years. Her expertise is well known in Encinitas Acupuncture circles. In a typical week, she will treat low back pain and spasm, a woman with fertility issues, a sprained ankle and multiple migraine headache issues.
How does it work?
Acupuncture balances the body, stimulating processes that need support, and calms other functions that are over worked. Hormones, muscles, and the nervous system will find a universal harmony that are optimal for your body. Our acupuncturist works with the 5 element technique as well as balancing your meridians. Moxabustion, cupping, herb therapy, hot packs and massage are also used when needed.

Applied Kinesiology (A.K.) is a system using muscle testing as a functional neurological evaluation. The methodology is concerned primarily with neuromuscular function as it relates to the structural, chemical and mental physiologic regulatory mechanisms. A.K., which originated within the chiropractic profession, is an approach to clinical practice, with multidisciplinary applications.
Applied Kinesiology IS
A diagnostic system using muscle testing to augment normal examination procedures.
It was founded and developed by Dr. George Goodheart, Jr., a chiropractor. Further advances have been made by other researchers from various disciplines.
A diagnostic tool that uses the neuromuscular system and other measurable parameters to aid in evaluating what is wrong and what to do for a patient.
An applied kinesiology examination depends upon knowledge of functional neurology, anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and biochemistry
and is combined with standard physical examination procedures, laboratory findings, x-rays and history taking.
An expanding body of knowledge that covers in depth the structural and chemical imbalances that are at the base of most patient's problems.
Is based on chiropractic principles and requires manual manipulation of the spine, extremities and cranial bones as the structural basis of its procedures.
