After going over the results of your tests from the initial examination, we will begin care, which includes chiropractic adjustments. The goal of the chiropractic adjustment is to correct the spinal subluxations detected during the examination. To do that, the doctor applies pressure to the bone and “unlocks” it from its improper position. The bone will then be free to align itself correctly.
Unfortunately, the muscles connected to subluxated vertebrae get used to their positions and have a tendency to pull the bone back out of place. It may take several sessions before the chiropractic adjustment “holds,” and the bone settles into its proper alignment.
We use many chiropractic adjustment techniques in the office, which allows us to provide many options for our patients. Primarily, we use the Gonstead, Thompson, Diversified and Activator techniques.
