Chiropractic Adjustments

Joints in the spine that are not moving properly can irritate or choke surrounding nerves. This is exactly why chiropractic adjustments are needed – to help those stuck joints move properly once again. Dedicated to providing you the highest quality of hands-on care, along with superior diagnostic solutions, our team of professionals are dedicated to helping you function at the highest level of wellness.

What are spinal adjustments?

Spinal manipulation or spinal adjustments involves chiropractors pressing on the spine in a certain motion by making use of their two bare hands, or sometimes using medical devices. Enhancing the body’s physical function by correcting structural positioning is the ultimate objective of spinal adjustment.

A misaligned spine can lead to a number of problems, like pinched nerves and disturbance of the transmission of messages between the nerves and the brain. Some of the typical signs and symptoms are numbness, tingling and even pain. This just shows that spinal adjustments should be used so that nervous and immune systems are not jeopardized.

Get maximum pain relief with the aid of the different physiotherapy techniques at our office, such as:

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

This approach uses electric impulses to generate the contraction of muscles. Electric pulses, which are often used for sports training, do imitate through the central nervous system and its normal activity.

Ice/Heat Therapy

One of the most ancient methods of therapy is ice/heat therapy. Proven to be effective, this therapy is perfect for muscle relaxation, increased blood supply and pain relief.

Cold Laser 

This technique supplies energy to the patient’s body by means of light photons. The cells and tissues absorb the energy, which speeds up the activity of tissue recovery. Cold laser is an extremely efficient therapy that enables quick recovery for damaged tissues. Among the possible things that this technique is effective for are the following:

• It can lessen muscle inflammation which is efficient in enhancing joint and muscle function.
• It makes the collagen synthesis to function faster which makes tissue restoration quicker.
• Both the tissue reproduction and development of cells are increased.
• Lessen scar tissue development, resulting in more complete recovery and less likelihood of re-injury and weakness.
• This method can boost the blood circulation to the impacted area(s).
• The process can successfully hasten the nerve cell process, which can reduce the pain and numbness felt because of nerve complications.
