We utilize several types of chiropractic manipulation; all are designed to restore function to a joint that is not moving properly or to reduce tension in a muscular support structure.
The action of the technique may be quick shallow thrust or slowly applying pressure to the required area. These techniques are typically done by hand and are often used in conjunction with other treatment modalities. The technique chosen for the patient depends on the specific diagnosis and your chiropractic needs.
Benefits of an manipulation include relief from chronic pain, muscle tension and stress. Chiropractic manipulation may also slow or stop spinal degeneration and increase your flexibility thus easing movement.
Research continues to support the effectiveness of chiropractic manipulation for the treatment of; acute and chronic pain of the spine and extremities, muscle tension, headaches, carpel tunnel syndrome, disc problems, and other common musculoskeletal issues.
