Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health?
Your chiropractor is specially trained to examine you for the presence of spinal misalignments, called "vertebral subluxations". If detected your chiropractor will use safe and effective chiropractic adjustments to restore proper spinal movement, correct your subluxations and remove nervous system interference.
A chiropractic adjustment typically involves a high velocity, low amplitude thrust applied to a vertebra, with the goal of restoring proper motion and relieving pressure on the nervous system. there are different adjustment techniques used by chiropractors; your chiropractor will determine what techniques are appropriate for you.
Besides manual adjustments, the doctors use a variety of different techniques including Drop Table, Activator, Impulse IQ, Percussor, Cold Laser, Traction Table, etc. The doctors will tailor your treatment plan using a combination of different techniques.
