Chiropractic Wellness

Cornerstone Chiropractic applies the basic principles of chiropractic to provide our practice members with services to allow them to reach and maintain a life of optimal health. We focus on the patient as a whole.

The main focus is the nervous system because of its intimate relationship on perceiving, coordinating and adapting to the world around it. When there is an interference to the nervous system or the expression of the nervous system, the patient cannot perceive, coordinate or adapt at their best. Thus, resulting in dis-ease and increasing the likelihood of health issues down the road. Through specific chiropractic adjustments, nerve impulses being sent to and from the brain via the brainstem and spinal cord, can flow uninterrupted. This allows the human body to heal and function at its best.

Your body is designed to heal. Your nervous system (aka The Master Control System) controls every function of the body, either directly or indirectly. When you give your body what it needs, and minimize what it doesn’t, you are giving yourself the best opportunity to a healthy and happy life.

Well Adjusted


1. TRT (Torque Release Technique)
2. Diversified
3. Thompson Drop Technique
4. Upper and Lower Extremity 
All of our techniques aim to remove as much neurological and musculoskeletal as possible so your body can heal and function at its best. You will be able to remain relaxed through the entire adjustment. 

We use state of the art chiropractic neurological assessment technology to effectively assess each patient. Dr. James Jernigan is Certified, Advanced-Proficient, in Torque Release Technique (TRT). TRT is the only chiropractic technique that utilizes an FDA approved adjusting instrument for the correction of the vertebral subluxation complex. TRT was born out of research and is becoming extremely popular in the newer generation of chiropractors because of the rapid neurological results and how the patient's can remain relaxed throughout the visit. This technique is a great alternative for patients that are uncomfortable or scared to get their neck adjusted because it utilizes a hand-held instrument called the Integrator. The Integrator is the only instrument that is FDA approved to correct the Vertebral Subluxation Complex.

Dr James is also Certified in Upper and Lower Extremities.
