A chiropractic adjustment is the art of using a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is fixated, “locked up,” or not moving properly. This adds motion to the joint, helping the bones gradually return to a more normal position and motion. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is improved function, improved nervous system function, and improved health.

There are many ways to adjust the spine. Usually the doctor’s hands or a specially designed instrument delivers a brief and highly-accurate thrust. Some adjusting methods are quick, whereas others require a slow and constant pressure.
 

After years of training and clinical experience, each chiropractic doctor becomes highly skilled in the delivery of a variety of adjusting approaches.
 

Treatment Methods
 

Spinal Manipulation or Adjustment
Precise impulses in specific direction are used to restore normal motion and position of individual vertebrae. This is the primary method of treatment administered to help relieve pain and maintain a healthy balance between the spine and nervous system.
 

Activator
This is a low pressure adjusting technique using a small, specially-designed instrument to restore spinal health and flexibility.
 

Cox Flextion-Distraction Technique
This is a popular chiropractic technique which uses a gentle, non-force stretching movement to aid in relieving nerve pressure in the lower and middle back and neck. 
 

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.
