How is my spine corrected?
Doctors of Chiropractic focus on the nervous system and its association with the spine. They are trained to adjust the misaligned vertebrae to their proper position by restoring normal range of motion in the spinal column. They do this manually, utilising the chiropractic procedure known as “spinal adjustment.” In our office, we use a combination of our hands in applying corrective pressure to the spine in a specific direction and location, and also with a specific table. The adjustment is delivered manually with gentle force or with an instrument called the activator. These techniques and tools help to restore the alignment and mobility of the vertebrae, and as a result the functioning of the entire body.
Does the adjustment hurt?
Under normal circumstances, chiropractic adjustments are painless. In case of acute injuries focus will be to use gentle technique until the swelling comes down.
