One of the primary techniques I use is “spinal adjustment,” also known as a “chiropractic adjustment.” In fact, chiropractors are renowned as experts who specialise in performing spinal adjustments. The term “adjustment” refers to the physical adjustment of the spinal vertebrae. The goal of such spinal adjustment is to reduce vertebral subluxation and return the spine to a more natural state of health. The word subluxation is derived from the Latin terms Sub (“less than” or “slight”) and Luxate (“to dislocate” or “be misaligned”). Accordingly, vertebral subluxation means the slight dislocation or misalignment of the spinal vertebrae.
I’ll also be incorporating one or more other techniques and modalities to make you feel better, including laser therapy, interferential therapy, electronic and soft tissue massage, manual chiropractic adjustments such as Gonstead technique, diversified technique, instrument adjusting from the activator to Impulse Adjusting Instrument, Drop Piece, Cox Flexion Distraction and supportive taping.
When the need arises, I will also give you the support and direction to manage or improve your condition yourself through biomechanical correction devices, exercise, stretches, diet or other lifestyle adjustments.
Physical therapies are used to aid in the recover and healing of soft tissue injury and damage and to complement the chiropractic adjusting:
