What is an adjustment?
A Chiropractic adjustment is the use of a specific force in a precise direction that helps normalize spinal function. The adjustment is applied to a joint that is fixated, "locked up", or not moving properly. Adjustments help return the bones to a more normal position or motion, restoring body's natural healing.
What does it do?
Adjustments help normalize spinal function and avoid bone and soft tissue degeneration. When nervous system function improves in this way, the body can begin the natural healing process.
At our office we use a variety of techniques. We use the conventional care which involves a push and a popping sound which is actually the air in the joints moving around on some of our patients. We also use a technique called activator methods which uses a gentle tool to tap the bone in place and an instrument called impulse which also moves the bone in a more gentle manner. We can find a technique that works best for you and your family!
In our office we adjust both the spine and other bones of the body ( hands, feet, legs and arms ).
