Adjustments & Manipulation

Adjustment_2.jpg Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.

When these vertebrae are out of place, it can have an overall systemic effect altering normal muscular and  central nervous system function. Without proper alignment and normal nerve transmission it becomes impossible for our bodies to function at our peak.

An adjustment to the spine or extremety ie. (hand wrist elbow knee ankle foot) is accomplished in our office by the use of an "activator" adjusting instrument. This instrument produces a very low force or impulse which realigns the the "subluxated" or out of position vertebrae thus restoring normal joint function.  This is accomplished with very little to no discomfort. 

Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is in alignment, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to.
