Spinal joints that are not functioning correctly can compress or irritate adjacent nerves. Chiropractic adjustments add motion to these fixed joints, reducing nerve irritation and improving flow.
Sometimes a specific highly accurate thrust is applied, an instrument may be used to deliver carefully directed energy or a slow constant pressure is used. Some techniques can produce an audible “pop”.
Because we rely on adjustments to help your body “right itself”, we're highly efficient.
Most patients report a sense of well being and ease. After all, if adjustments weren't pleasant our patients wouldn't return for the the treatments needed to retrain their spine!
Newborns, infants, children, seniors and even back surgery patients can get adjusted. Naturally, adjustments are tailored to your size, age and particular health issue.
Find out for yourself by scheduling a no-obligation consultation to discuss your problem.
We use a number of highly effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.
The primary adjusting techniques we use include:
After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up fixated spinal joints.
This full spine approach relies on X- rays and and in some cases, a thermal sensing instrument is used for a more thorough evaluation and documented results.
Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine.
This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent low force thrust.
We're experts on the above adjusting techniques taught at the Palmer College of Chiropractic, birthplace of chiropractic.
Joints in your body other that the spine can get fixed or misaligned. Affected joints include TMJ, wrists, hands, collar bone, shoulder, ribs, hip, knee, ankle and foot.
If you've been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let us know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
