The chiropractic adjustment, or manipulation, is a procedure where the chiropractor uses their hands or an instrument to restore proper alignment and movement to the spine or extremity joints. The chiropractic adjustment improves the range of motion and nervous function, that has been decreased by spinal misalignment (subluxation).
Some of the main goals of this procedure are:
- Reduction of pain
- Increased mobility
- Decreased muscle spasm and trigger points (painful muscle knots)
- Improved nervous system function
There are numerous chiropractic techniques. Some patients enjoy the immediate feeling of relief offered by the “cracking” or “popping” type of spinal manipulation, while others will cringe at the thought and prefer a low-force and gentle technique. Our doctors are trained and skilled in many different techniques. We can utilize the technique(s) or instrument best suited for the patient’s preference and condition.
Our doctors and professionals take the time to explain all procedures. We also educate our patients on how they can improve their own health, outside of our office. Posture, ergonomics, exercise, nutrition and diet all play a role in overall health. We are here to guide you through healthy decisions and lifestyle choices.
Your treatments may include therapeutic modalities like electric stim, ultrasound, massage therapy, dry needling and intersegmental traction. Functional movements and exercises may also be prescribed ad performed in conjunction with your treatment.
