Chiropractic care is often the foundation of our treatment programs. It involves using manual and instrument adjustments to aid in the proper alignment of the joints and to improve overall health while heating personal and sports injuries.
Manual Chiropractic Adjustments
Manual chiropractic adjustments can be used to correct misalignments in the vertebrae as well as in the extremity joints. The most common type of manual chiropractic adjustment is the Diversified Technique, which is an HVLA (High-Velocity Low-Amplitude) Adjustment. This technique involves applying a firm, swift thrust to the injured joint in order to push it back into its proper position and maximize its range of motion.
Instrument adjustments are a low-force type of adjustment that utilizes a special hand-help adjustment device. Once the injured or misaligned joint has been located, the instrument adjusting device is placed against the joint and activated. A rubber-tipped arm them delivers a pulsing adjustment. Many individuals find this technique to be more comfortable since it doesn’t involve any twisting and no popping of the joints is heard.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care has many benefits when utilized regularly. One of the biggest benefits is the fact that the treatments are non-invasive and drug-free. Chiropractic care also helps improve the function of the central nervous system, which can help with cold and flu prevention, allergies and even sleep issues. Chiropractic care is even beneficial for children with bad backs due to carrying heavy book bags and older adults who wish to prevent accidental falls.
