The chiropractic adjustment works by finding the joint that’s not working as it should, applying a high velocity, low amplitude force to the specific area to increase the joint space. Thus, forcing the joint to relax, improving mobility in the area, and stimulating blood flow to the affected area to promote healing.
There are many things that Chiropractors do. Chiropractic covers a broad spectrum of healthcare treatments and services, which means Chiropractors treat the whole person rather than just specific symptoms. 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. Chiropractic treatment can be helpful for other medical problems as well, such as asthma, vertigo, vestigial conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, and fibromyalgia. A chiropractor focuses on joint pain or muscle pain and may perform adjustments or spinal manipulations in order to provide relief and get you back to your regular activities. A chiropractor can help patients manage their pain with little-to-no medication.
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.
A chiropractor is a health care professional who diagnoses and treats disorders of the neuromuscular system. Chiropractic services focus on the musculoskeletal system: back pain, neck pain, joint pain in your arms or legs, and headaches. Using spinal manipulation as their primary choice of treatment, chiropractors treat patients with manual adjustments and manipulations to joints and muscles.
You should consider seeing a chiropractor if you notice that your joints are not moving well, locking up, or feeling ‘out of place.’ If you are experiencing these pains in your knee, foot, ankle, wrist, back, neck, jaw, or shoulder, you should seek a chiro for treatment.
Yes, chiropractors can help reduce and even eliminate neck pain! Neck pain is often caused by misalignment of the spine, which puts pressure on the nerves in your neck. A chiropractor can adjust subluxations (misaligned vertebra) which are believed to cause nerve interference. This adjustment takes the pressure off the nerves, allowing for better blood flow promoting healing within the body.
Chiropractic adjustments and manipulations are completely safe and highly effective for anyone experiencing pain or joint restrictions and mobility issues. Chiropractic adjustments help increase space in the joint, which may also cause an increase in blood flow to the affected area to promote healing. Chiropractic care is meant to improve your health, not cause problems. Chiropractors use specific techniques and methods to help you achieve the best possible results without hurting you in any way. Chiropractic adjustive services can be used on anyone, from infants and toddlers to adults of any age, including senior citizens.
