Choosing the right equipment for your practice can often be complicated. What features do I need? Which tables will fit my budget? Does elevation make sense? The list can seem endless.

Our ErgoStyle Story began in 2009 when PHS Chiropractic purchased The Ergostyle Adjusting Table line from the Chattanooga Group, Inc., who engineered a revolutionary line of chiropractic tables. The result took chiropractic adjustment one step further by featuring our patented ErgoStyle drop. Our revolutionary drops elevate across the entire cushion, rather than just a single pin providing improved accuracy and a smoother adjustment with less force resulting in both patient and doctor satisfaction.

Approximately 25–60% of patients who experience low-back pain (LBP) will report recurrence of pain, many within as little as one year.¹ LBP is the most common cause of work disability in the US.² Many patients on disability for in excess of six months will not return to work, and that number decreases to near zero after two years.³ LBP is also the most expensive reason for work disability in the US.² It has been estimated that 2% of the work force in the US will be compensated for back injuries yearly.³
First impressions matter. Clients pay attention to details, and upon first glance they will notice if your upholstery looks clean and well cared for, or if it appears tattered, stained or in disrepair.
