Principles of Chiropractic Adjustment
The term "chiropractic" is suited for this technique, which still revolves around manual adjustments even as new, instrument-based techniques have come along. The pioneer in the field, D.D. Palmer, performed the very first chiropractic adjustment in 1895. It's worth noting that this first adjustment actually succeeded in resolving a hearing problem -- an early, potent demonstration of the wide-ranging benefits of chiropractic care.
Chiropractic adjustments are focused application for high-velocity, low-amplitude force aimed at correcting a state known as subluxation, the misalignment of vertebral or joint components. Subluxation can not only cause pain and loss of mobility in a particular joint; it can also throw off your balance, create musculoskeletal strain, and impair nerve function (which in turn can lead to a variety of systemic ailments). You can experience such a misalignment from birth, in an acute injury, or due to chronic degenerative problems. Our targeted adjustments can bring your body back into its proper alignment, relieving pain and improving all aspects of your health and wellness.
Complementary Treatment Techniques
Chiropractic adjustment makes a natural companion to other holistic, drug-free treatment techniques. For instance, we may combine adjustment with spinal decompression, a non-surgical method for relieving pinched nerves and treating herniated discs. At the same time, we may prescribe ultrasound and cold laser therapy to relieve soft tissue aches and inflammation related to misalignment or injury. Myofascial release can free tight, trapped tissues to help you get the most out of your adjustment sessions. We can combine these therapies to address your specific needs, symptoms, and state of health.
