Chiropractic is the science that is concerned with the relationship between structure, primarily the spine, and function, primarily the nervous system, of the human body. The relationship between the two may affect the restoration and preservation of health.
Chiropractors use spinal manipulation (adjustments) to treat patients. Spinal manipulation is thousands of years old but has been refined to an art by the chiropractic profession.
What is an adjustment?
Chiropractic care is known (but not exclusively) for its use of the adjustment, sometimes called manipulation. An adjustment is a precise procedure in which the trained Doctor of Chiropractic exerts specific corrective pressure at specific places on your spine or other joints. When a thorough examination reveals joints that are not in proper function, adjustments are applied to correct joint alignment/mobility, relieve associated muscle and nerve tension, improve balance and assist healing. The patient’s tolerance and condition determine the type of adjustment, either gentle or more pressure.
conditions commonly treated by chiropractic
- Headaches (including migraines and tension headaches)
- "Pinched Nerves"
- Pain and stiffness in neck, shoulder, and arms
- Painful joints
- Sports or work related injuries
Diversified technique is the High Velocity/Low Amplitude (HVLA) adjustment that is most commonly used throughout the field of chiropractic. As the name implies, the Diversified Technique can be used to treat many of the joints in the body and is the primary technique used by the doctors in our office.
This low-force technique utilizes a specialized table that is designed to induce flexion in the spine. The technique, originally developed by Dr. James M. Cox, is based on the application of small, precise amounts of flexion distraction to the part of the spine experiencing disc compression or herniation. As the vertebrae in question are gently pulled away from each other, negative pressure draws the herniated or bulging disc back into position, relieving nerve pressure and pain and moving much-needed fluids back into the disc.
The Thompson Technique, or "Drop Table Technique" utilizes a specific function of the adjusting table in which a thrust is applied to a specific area of the spine. The Thompson technique derives its name from the founder, Dr. Clay Thompson, who fully patented this method in 1957. The main areas that are treated are the pelvic, dorsal and lumbar regions. This method has grown to be loved because it is not painful and uses the least force, because the thrust brings about movement whereas the fast drop will help the joint go through the rest of the required motion.
