The Doctors practice multiple techniques. They are customized for each individual, treating patients of ALL ages, infants to seniors. The term “adjustment” refers to the specific manipulation applied to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally.
It reduces the subluxation, which results in an increased range of motion, reduced nerve irritability and improved function. The adjustment consists of a high velocity, short lever arm thrust applied to a vertebra, which is often accompanied by an audible release of gas. The sound is caused by the release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, which releases joint pressure. The sensation is usually relieving, though minor discomfort has been reported (that usually lasts for only a short time duration) if the surrounding muscles are in spasm or the patient tenses up during the chiropractic procedure.
