Adjustments represent a very minor movement of the skeletal structure of the body, most often a vertebra in the spine. Adjustments are intended to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons. When a vertebra is out of alignment, it is called a subluxation. Subluxations can be caused by physical trauma, stress and even the various chemicals we ingest or are around on a daily basis.
When vertebrae are out of place, muscular functions and the central nervous system's ability to effectively communicate with all of the nerves in your body are disrupted. Without proper alignment, messages aren't sent and this can result in anything from pain to disease. Adjustments and manipulations ensure proper communication is taking place, and therefore the body's ability to heal is engaged.
A chiropractor achieves a chiropractic adjustment by applying precise, quick and painless pressure over a vertebra utilizing his/her hands or an instrument. When the adjustment happens, it may be accompanied by a noise that sounds like you are popping your knuckles. This noise is referred to "joint cavitation" and is caused by the release of gases, such as oxygen and nitrogen, from the joint space.
Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is in alignment, it is able to communicate with its internal systems more effectively and the result is a happier, healthier, pain-free you!
Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment which reduces nerve system stress, and improves pelvic biomechanical function. Its purpose is to detect and correct Sacral Subluxation and S/I joint dysfunction.
Ultrasound is a therapy that is utilized to handle injuries related to joints and most soft tissues, as well as muscle spasms. While it shares the same name, this ultrasound is not the type of ultrasound utilized diagnostically to screen internally in the body. This ultrasound creates small sound wave that in effect, vibrate and massage soft tissues and muscle. These sound waves are used to facilitate the body's healing process at the most basic cellular level, thus speeding up your road to recovery.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (E-Stim)
An exceptional way to help the body in the healing process is electrical muscle stimulation. This procedure works by sending a very small electrical current into the affected soft tissue injury or muscle spasm. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy utilizes this electrical current to assist the body in reducing swelling and in releasing trigger points that may have the muscle locked up. It does this by helping the body release natural relievers of pain often referred to as endorphins.
Cryotherapy is well known to help numb painful areas as well as provide cooling releif to affected soft tissues. It is also an excellent way to help with muscle spasms in the body. This therapy consists of applying cold compresses to the skin surrounding the effected area to reduce the temperature of the skin thereby constricting the blood vessels in the area.
If there has been a recent soft tissue injury or muscle spasms, cryotherapy is an excellent way to help reduce inflammation and the risk of further injury in the early stages of your healing process.
Another very effective therapy for helping the body deal with spasms, sprains and other issues related to soft tissue areas is interferential electro-therapy. This therapy utilizes a very low simulated frequency, which is focused on the soft tissue. The sensation felt through this therapy is very light and most patients feel quiet comfortable during the treatment.
In addition to this therapy stimulation the body's natural healing method by helping it to produce natural pain killing endorphins, it also helps with the release of these strains, spasms and soft tissue injuries.
Professional sports figures are consistently reaching new heights in their professional careers. With each passing year, new records are shattered and the human body is pushed to limits. Everyday athletes follow suit by pushing themselves harder, choosing rigorous training patterns, and taking their diets to a new level. Despite the meticulous care and training that athletes take, they experience musculoskeletal injuries.
Chiropractors are to athletes, just as Cardiologists are to those who suffer with cardiovascular disease. Chiropractors have specific training in evaluating and treating the injuries and ailments of athletes. Chiropractors can treat an injured athlete more effectively with physical therapies and manipulation than a medical doctor. In addition to treating athletic injuries, the chiropractor is skilled in aiding the athlete in injury prevention.
If you are an athlete or weekend warrior, chiropractic care will enable you to reach peak performance, without breaking yourself.
