Chiropractic in 100 words or less: Aches and pains are signs that your body isn’t working right. Your brain, spinal cord and all your nerves control how your body works. Physical, chemical or emotional stresses produce a defensive posture. Muscles contract, locking spinal joints that pinch or irritate nearby nerves. Lack of nervous system integrity sets the stage for disease and ill health. A thorough examination helps chiropractors find these vertebral subluxations. Applying a precise force to stuck spinal joints helps the body right itself.
What are vertebral subluxations?
A vertebral subluxation is the result of spinal bones with improper motion or position affecting nerve communications between your brain and your body.
sub = less than | luxation = dislocation
A vertebral subluxation is a stress response. Muscles go into spasm. Spinal bones lock up. And adjacent nerves are choked or chafed. This interferes with the control and regulation of your body. This garbles communications between the brain and parts of your body.
Distorted nerve communications can be an underlying cause of many health problems beyond just headaches and back pain. For example. Interfere with nerve impulses going to or from your stomach: stomach problems.
Only a chiropractic examination can detect vertebral subluxations. And only chiropractic adjustments can reduce their effect to your nervous system, naturally.
Find out if you have vertebral subluxations before they become more serious and more difficult to correct.
We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our judgment and years of experience.
The primary adjusting techniques we use include:
After identifying which spinal bones have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is administered to free up “stuck” joints.
Named for its developer, we conduct a thorough evaluation using full spine X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for accurate adjustments.
Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine.
This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force
Sacro Occipital Technique helps normalize the relationship between the pelvis and the head, using gravity to make the necessary
Clinical Biomechanics of Posture® is effective in producing improved posture, spinal alignment and restoration of essential spinal curves.
While many health problems can be traced to the spine, wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees other joints of the body can be helped.
If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let Dr. Ranjit know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
