Are All Patients Adjusted the Same Way?
The doctor evaluates each patient’s unique spinal problem and develops an individual course of care. The resulting recommendations are
based upon years of training and experience.
Some patients who complain of headaches, may actually have a lower back problem that is causing a compensation reaction at the base of
the skull. Other patients may be experiencing numbness and tingling in their fingers, when the actual problem is in the neck. Every patient presents a uniquely different spinal pattern.
Patients notice that their chiropractic care is delivered with confidence and precision. Each visit builds on the one before. While
visits may seem similar, each patient’s care is uniquely different from every other patient.
Can I Adjust Myself?
Since chiropractic adjustment is a specific force, applied in a specific direction, to a specific spinal joint, it is virtually
impossible to adjust oneself.
It is possible to turn, bend, or twist in certain ways to create a “popping” sound, like the sound that sometimes accompanies a
chiropractic adjustment. Unfortunately, this type of joint manipulation is usually counterproductive, often making an already unstable area of the spine even more unsteady. Adjusting the spine is not for amateurs!
The best way to enjoy the healthful benefits of chiropractic is to receive adjustments from a chiropractic doctor. Even your doctor must seek out the services of another colleague to help restore and maintain proper spinal function.
