Directional Non-Force Techninque®

Directional Non-Force Techninque® (DNFT®) is the original low force method of chiropractic.  It has been developed and taught for over 70 years. This unique specific method provides gentle, effective, and long-lasting relief in a minimal number of visits. Due to the safety and precise analysis of DNFT, Dr. Matthew Longwill is able to treat patients of all ages. To date his youngest patient was 3 weeks old with the oldest being 94!

X-rays and MRI are not necessary for analysis and are rarely required except to rule out pathology or complicating factors. Dr. Matthew Longwill is trained to know when a referral for a radiological exam would be beneficial.

DNFT® improves health and relieves pain by structurally aligning the bones to remove nerve interference or compression of nerve fibers. Increased nerve function allows the body's inborn life force to express itself.

DNFT® adjustments improve structural function and help restore the body's self-healing capacity. When the nervous system is free from distress of structural insults it can orchestrate the natural healing potential of the body.
