Chiropractic Adjustments Are Essential
Our world-renowned Research Institute conducts on-going heart / cardiovascular clinical trials and research studies including leading edge clinical trials in heart transplantation.
Spinal joints that aren’t moving right can choke or irritate nearby nerves. Chiropractic adjustments add motion to these stuck joints, reducing nervous system disruption. Then, health has the best opportunity to return.
Sometimes a specific, highly-accurate thrust is used. Or an instrument delivers carefully directed energy. Or a slow, constant pressure is used. Several areas may be adjusted, or just one. Sometimes a popping sound is heard.
Because we rely on adjustments to help your body “right itself”, we’re highly proficient.
Most practice members report a sense of well-being and ease. After all, if adjustments weren’t pleasant, our practice members wouldn’t return for the multiple visits needed to retrain their spine!
Newborns, infants, children, seniors and even back surgery practice members can get adjusted. Naturally, adjustments are tailored to your size, age and particular health issue.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. A New Zealand government study found that adjustments are “remarkably safe.” Chiropractic care enjoys an excellent track record. A thorough exam can identify the rare person for whom chiropractic care might be unsuited.
No. Only the spinal joints that are “locked up” receive adjustments. The occasional spinal joints that move too much, are passed over so weakened muscles and ligaments can stabilize and heal.
The number of adjustments varies with each practice member and their individual health goals. Many practice members sense some progress within a week or two of frequent visits. Visits are less often as your spine stabilizes. In difficult cases, complete healing can take months or even years.
Even today’s “natural” childbirth methods can affect an infant’s spine. Colic, unusual crying, poor appetite or erratic sleeping habits can be signs of spinal distress. Adjustments are gentle. Knowing exactly where to adjust, no more pressure than you’d use to test the ripeness of a tomato is involved.
