Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on the disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system and the effects on an individual’s wellness. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches. Chiropractors diagnose problems with mobility and offer treatment options like manual adjustments. Chiropractors also work to improve an individual’s overall health by teaching self-care techniques like proper posture and ergonomics.
Yes! Hip pain can be caused by misalignment of the spine, which puts pressure on the nerves around the pelvis. A chiropractor has many tools to address this type of pain using spinal adjustments that take pressure off the sources of chronic pain.
The crack or pop that you hear is the formation of gas within the joints. That crack is not indicative of a successful adjustment. The actual adjustment comes from putting the force through the joint, the high velocity, low amplitude, adjustment, or force to the joint space. One issue some chiropractors have is “chasing the pop,” where they seek out the sound instead of going based on their physiological assessment.
Yes, chiropractors are trained to analyze your posture and make corrections. A chiropractor would have to examine your posture to establish a baseline for your proper posture to develop an effective treatment plan. Chiropractic care can be used as part of an overall plan to improve your health through improved posture, strength, flexibility, and coordination. Posture refers to the way you hold your body while standing, sitting, or lying down. It is crucial to maintain good posture to keep your joints stacked vertically over one another.

Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are the number one cause of orofacial pain. Jaw pain, earaches, headaches, or neck pain are common symptoms of TMD. TMD is an umbrella term that describes a number of different conditions all with the same primary symptom: jaw pain.
Jaw problems are caused by overuse of jaw muscles, misalignment of teeth, teeth grinding or clenching, as well as poor posture, and stress. While grinding and clenching your teeth can be primary factors, there can also be many secondary factors related to jaw pain, including jaw malocclusion (when your upper and lower teeth don’t meet properly), poor dental hygiene, stressful lifestyle, poor posture, jaw injury or trauma, aging bones and muscles, and bruxism (grinding of the teeth). Jaw pain that lasts only momentarily after eating or opening the mouth wide for instance may indicate a temporary problem, such as TMD that has gone into spasm or locked jaw position termed “trismus”.
After an assessment, a chiropractor will find an area that’s locked up. Now, what most chiropractors do is adjust in extension and rotation. What Dr. Joshua Konu at Human Integrated Performance does is flexion and rotation to reduce any detrimental effects. Rotate the area that’s locked up and apply a high-velocity, low amplitude force to the area.
The primary cause of TMD is a muscle fault, so-called “trigger points”. The jaw cannot move without muscles. The jaw muscles have two origins and attach to the jawbone on each side, which moves the jaw front-back and sideways. There are many different things that can cause TMD, including teeth grinding, poor posture, stress, injury, infection, arthritis, or other conditions.
