Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands on health care discipline that focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system. Chiropractors are primary contact healthcare professionals trained to assess, diagnose and treat neuromusculoskeletal conditions.
Our Chiropractic Doctors have a holistic approach to wellness, meaning they not only look for the underlying cause of your symptoms, but also locate any disruptions or disturbances in the body that interfere with the nervous system and restrict normal function. Chiropractic interventions are then applied to help optimize conditions for normal function to be restored. These interventions include, but are not limited to, chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, soft tissue therapy and lifestyle modifications.
What is a chiropractic adjustment?
It is a procedure used to apply a controlled but quick (high velocity, low amplitude) thrust to a joint. The goal of the adjustment is to correct the alignment, create movement, and improve the body’s function by optimizing joint health, vessel and nerve function, and communication with the brain. A “popping” noise, known as a “cavitation”, may or may not accompany the adjustment and is not an indication of a successful adjustment, rather it is a possible benign side effect of the technique. Although the sound may be loud and scary to hear it is simply the release of gaseous elements from a tight fluid filled joint and is not harmful in any way.
