A chiropractic adjustment is the art of using a specific force in a direction, applied to a joint that is subluxated, "locked up", or not moving properly. This adds motion to the joint, helping the bones gradually return to a more normal position and motion. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is improved spinal function, improved nervous system function and improved health.
There are many different ways to adjust the spine. The doctor uses his hands or a specially designed instrument to apply a gentle force to a specific area of the spine.
After years of training and clinical experience your chiropractic doctor becomes highly skilled in the delivery of a variety of adjusting approaches. Regardless of the technique used, each chiropractic adjustment is tailored to suit the patient's age, size, and unique spinal problem.
Since a chiropractic adjustment is a specific force, applied in a specific direction, to a specific spinal joint, it is virtually impossible to adjust oneself.
It is possible to turn or bend or twist certain ways to create a "popping" sound, similar to the sound that sometimes accompanies a Chiropractic adjustment. Unfortunately, this type of joint movement is usually counterproductive, often making an already unstable area of the spine even more unstable. Adjusting the spine is not for amateurs.
The best way to enjoy the helpful benefits of Chiropractic is to receive an adjustment from your qualified Doctor of Chiropractic.
The loss of normal motion or position of the bones of the spine is known as a vertebral subluxation. Once abnormal motion occurs it sets off a chain reaction which affects movement, nerves, muscles, soft tissues and finally the bones of the spine. Doctors of chiropractic refer to this as the Vertebral Subluxation Complex.
Instead of treating your symptoms your Doctor of Chiropractic is primarily interested in detecting, reducing, and preventing the Vertebral Subluxation Complex. So how do you become subluxated? This happens when spinal bones loose their normal position and motion from Physical, Emotional or Chemical imbalances such as:
Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked for the Vertebral Subluxation Complex.
Later, learning to walk, ride a bicycle and other childhood activities can cause the spinal problems. While a bandage and some comforting words can help a skinned knee, the unseen damage to the child's spine and subluxation is the unique domain of the doctor of chiropractic.
Many childhood health complaints that are brushed off as "growing pains" can often be traced to the spine. Regular Chiropractic adjustments can identify these subluxations and help avoid many of the health complaints seen later in adults.
Naturally, chiropractic adjusting procedures are modified to a childs spine. Most parents report that their children enjoy their Chiropractic adjustments and seem healthier than other children.
Remember... Early detection is the key to prevention.
