I have been in practice for over 30 years and I have been performing chiropractic adjustments on thousands of patients. This takes time and experience and my skill at providing this care in my opinion is excellent. I am gentle yet specific and theraputic in what I do for you. I adjust not only the neck and back but also extremity problems that require this approach. For patients that require extra special care and gentle procedures, I have mechanized tools that can be used to relieve the pressure on your spine and erxremities as well.
I think that the paragraghs below summarize well, my treatment approach for you.
Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.
An adjustment is often a pressure from myself utilizing my hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like you're cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.
Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is in alignment, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to do.
