Chiropractic adjustment is a procedure that helps correct imperfections in the spinal column. A chiropractor can manipulate the spine manually or by various other methods. The bones in the spine are gently put back into place. This helps relieve pressure that causes pain and other physical ailments. An unaligned spine can cause issues with every other part of your body, especially the back, legs, and neck. Our trained specialists can make these adjustments quickly and get you back to regular activity fast.
Chiropractic Adjustment Techniques
The techniques used for chiropractic adjustment vary. Choosing a method depends on several factors. These include what is wrong, the chiropractor’s training and the method you feel most comfortable undergoing. A thorough medical history will help your chiropractor decide which method is best.
This is the manipulation of the spine by using hands and special thrusting motions that reposition the bones.
Sacro Occipital Technique
With this technique, a chiropractor manipulates special areas of the head to produce the desired effect.
Cox Flexion Distraction
A specialized table with moving parts gently rocks you in a way that slowly realigns the bones.
This method involves gently stretching and relaxing the spine until the spinal bones fall into place.
Here your chiropractor straps you to a table that gently moves upside-down, at an angle to help the bones readjust by gravity.
Active Release Technique
This involves massaging the various problem areas until they are gently pushed into place.
This ancient practice involves placing specialized suction cups on the body to target problem areas.
Post-Surgical and Pre-Surgical Rehab
These help to reduce recovery problems and lessen the amount of time needed in recovery.
Deep Muscle Stimulator
The use of vibration to stimulate and relax the deep muscles.
