What is Chiropractic Care?
The practice of chiropractic addresses the alignment of your spinal vertebra and other joints. When you have bones that do not align in your spine or other joints, these can put pressure on the surrounding nerves and muscles, causing pain, stiffness or numbness and tingling. Chiropractic adjustments help to remove this pressure and therefore alleviate the pain and nerve irritation, too. There are many ways to assess and correct the spine and our practice offers several of them to complement your nutritional program in restoring your body to full health and function.
Diversified Technique is a type of chiropractic adjustment where the practitioner uses their hands to re-align a joint that has become subluxated (misaligned). It is sometimes called a Manual Adjustment. This is usually accompanied by a noise like a ‘pop’, similar to when you crack your knuckles. The adjustment is done in a face down or face up position and is usually painless. A Nutrition Response trained Chiropractor will determine if an adjustment is needed by muscle testing or by testing your range of motion with particular joints, your neck or spine.
