An adjustment is the specific application of force to facilitate the body's correction of nerve interference. Safe, effective and gentle chiropractic adjustments are provided using a variety of techniques. Our doctors choose from manual spinal adjustments, Activator, Arthrostim or soft tissue techniques, depending on individual patient needs.
Chiropractic care is designed to eliminate vertebral subluxation or nerve interference. Subluxation is a misalignment of vertebra creating alteration of nerve function. Subluxations interfere with the transmission of messages from the brain and nervous system to the muscles, tissues, organs and glands. Subluxations reduce the body's innate ability to express its maximum health potential.
While the majority of adjustments are to the spine, it is occasionally necessary to adjust extremities as well. Like spinal adjustments, extremity adjustments can be done manually or with the use of an instrument.
