Chiropractic adjustments are also known as spinal manipulation, joint manipulation, manual manipulation, chiropractic manipulation, spinal mobilization, and joint mobilization. Regardless of the term used the outcomes are the same. The treatment ultimately decreases pain, improves function and reduces inflammation.
Restore Chiropractic implements several types of adjustments in order to best serve the individual patient. We implement adjustments ranging from high velocity low amplitude (HVLA) mobilizations resulting in joint cavitation (popping) to instrument assisted adjusting for patients who require or prefer a gentler approach that does not illicit a “pop” or “crunch.”
Chiropractic care is often used in the treatment of low back and neck pain, but it can do much more. Chiropractors are obviously well versed in treating pain relating to the spine, but the benefits of chiropractic are multifactorial. Our goal at Restore Chiropractic is ultimately to improve function. Chiropractic care has been shown to increase the joints mobility, range of motion, and health, which not only can resolve pain and dysfunction but can also prevent the development or worsening of your condition in the future. Chiropractic adjustments are performed to restore motion to hypomobile joints and in return decrease pain, prevent future injury, improve gait, improve posture, decrease inflammation, and more.
