Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred to, are 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.
When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can't function at our pe ak.
Although the Doctor’s initial training was in traditional chiropractic manipulation, he mostly utilizes the Activator Method Technique . This technique is very light force using a hand held thrusting instrument delivering a gentle force, which is suitable for the very young, seniors and very fragile. The gentle nature allows the Doctor to do manipulations early on with acute conditions. It is especially appealing to people who are reluctant to have more forceful joint manipulative treatments. People are often surprised at how well it works given the gentleness of treatment. Some people prefer the more traditional approach and that too is available.
We also employ Applied Kinesiology Analysis to determine when, where, how and sometimes as important, to know when not to treat certain areas.
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.
