Spinal adjustments are the essence of Chiropractic care.
A “drop piece” adjustment
An adjustment is the art of delivering a very specific force, in a precise direction to a fixated or “locked up” joint. In turn, this helps to restore movement, resulting in improvement of spinal and nervous system function. There are many ways to adjust the spine. In our clinic we employ a range of manual and low force techniques that are tailored to the unique needs of each patient.
Manual techniques involve the skillful delivery of a short thrust at the area of the fixated joint. Other techniques, such as Drop Piece, make use of features on the table to deliver controlled adjustments. The Activator is a handheld instrument that is used to deliver very gentle and specific impulses.
Chiropractors receive extensive training in a complete range of adjusting techniques and are one of a handful of highly skilled professionals licensed to perform this type of therapy.
