Chiropractic Adjustment, or Spinal Manipulation is the process of restoring normal motion to a joint. Often when an injury occurs, certain joints in the spine, pelvis, or extremities may become restricted and no longer follow their normal movements. These manipulations can be applied to the restricted or injured areas in order to restore proper motion, resulting in decreased pain, greater range of motion, and increased healing. There are multiple ways that a chiropractor can adjust different the different joints throughout the body. Our trained Doctors of Chiropractic will determine what is the best way to mobilize a particular joint depending on the diagnosed condition and the patient being treated. Manipulation of the neck, low back, and extremities is a safe procedure with the end goal of increasing pain free range of motion.
If you have any questions on the process of Chiropractic Manipulation and how it may be able to help you, please feel free to give us a call or ask one of the doctors during your assessment.
Chiropractors take a natural and preventative approach to all musculoskeletal conditions. They pay particular attention to the spine, extremities and muscles. They perform a detailed history, physical exam, neurological exam and treatment plan to resolve condition diagnosed. If diagnosis is something we can not treat we will refer you to the proper physician who can help you with condition. Chiropractors purpose is to decrease pain, increase mobility, and restore function by performing specific spinal or extremity joint manipulation, also known as an adjustment.
