Chiropractic is a science and art that corrects various aches and pains resulting from one or more misaligned vertebrae or other joints. These misalignments are corrected manually by hand or instrument. When these misalignments involve nerve interference, we call them subluxations.
Different approaches or techniques can be used to get the desired results. The technique and chiropractic treatments implemented will depend on the patient, the type of misalignment, the area being adjusted and the chiropractor’s training.
Many Chiropractors will extend their studies beyond graduation to specialize in other chiropractic techniques to broaden their field of knowledge and expertise.
Depending on the patient and the afflicted area, a very specific, controlled thrust using the hands may be used to achieve the movement required while at other times, a constant pressure applied correctly may move the joint.
Adjusting instruments in chiropractic alignment are also becoming more popular as they are designed to deliver a very precise and effective adjustment which does not require the popping sound often associated with the chiropractic correction.
The Feeling Of Release
Most patients report a sense of well-being and release after a back adjustment.
Like taking a weight off your shoulders, our patients often report experiencing a sense of relief after adjustments.
Adjustment tools are often utilised too.
Subluxations may result in pinching of the nerves as they pass between the vertebrae which then results in aches and pains - even numbness.
Chiropractic Techniques with a gentle hands-on approach
Chiropractors correct subluxations with gentle adjustments which involve realigning the vertebrae and restoring movement to the joint involved. The adjustment is usually done by applying a very fast, very shallow precise thrust to restore its position and mobility. This correction can also be accomplished by light constant pressure or even using an instrument that is specifically engineered to move the bone as effectively and as gently as possible.
By restoring the position and movement of the joint, chiropractic care targets the actual cause of the pain. When normal movement is restored, it becomes a very successful way to eliminate back pain for thousands of people every year in the UK.
If you are suffering from back pain you are not alone.
Government studies show that low back pain alone affects 80% of the population at least once in their lifetime.
