Chiropractic manipulation (adjustments), which
are high-velocity, low-force techniques, are used by chiropractors to
restore motion to the joints in the spine and extremities. Back pain can
be caused by trauma and postural overstrain. This can cause entrapment
of the synovial folds in the facet joints of the spine, which can lead
to pain, spasm, and swelling. Adjustments can free up the synovial
folds, providing pain relief.
Adjustments, active/myofascial release, and therapeutic modalities are common techniques that we utilize
within our practice, all of which aim to improve
functionality, increase range of motion and/ or relieve pain, depending
on the individual and his or her needs.
