Chiropractic Treatments

A Chiropractic Adjustment is a manipulation of any of the 206 bones in your body and associated joint. These joints can have a limited range of motion due to capsular fixations or tight muscles. Both of which can cause tissue inflammation, nerve irritation and in many cases, pain. Manual manipulation along with myofascial release is implemented to treat your joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.

What do adjustments actually do?

  • Increase joint motion as well as the quality of its movement
  • Decrease tissue irritation and inflammation
  • Reflexively relax muscles around the joint
  • Stretch shortened tissues such as joint capsules and release joint adhesions
  • Relieve nerve compression and irritation
  • Reduce pain
  • Stimulate the autonomic nervous system, which regulates organ function
