What Is It?
Chiropractic treatment encompasses a broad range of services aimed at helping patients experiencing pain or injuries. There is a common misconception that chiropractic care solely involves spinal adjustments, but in reality, it is a profession focused on treating and facilitating recovery from various musculoskeletal injuries.
At Elite Sports Medicine, our team of chiropractors is well-versed in diverse treatment techniques to address a wide array of injuries. These techniques include chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue work targeting muscles, and personalized rehabilitation plans. We specialize in conservative management of injuries, offering a natural alternative to recovery that emphasizes movement, exercise, and hands-on therapy instead of resorting to surgical interventions or medications.
How Does It Work?
The chiropractic adjustment is a technique specifically aimed at mobilizing a joint that is restricted in its movement. This technique is employed by chiropractors to aid in the restoration of normal function and motion in the joint.
Typically, the chiropractic adjustment involves applying gentle pressure or a controlled thrust to facilitate optimal joint motion. During the adjustment, you may hear a popping noise, which occurs when nitrogen gas is released from the joint.
How Can It Help Me?
The adjustment is a highly effective technique that we commonly use to benefit the majority of our patients. Its primary objective is simple: to restore optimal motion to a compromised area. During the evaluation for an adjustment, our doctors will palpate (apply pressure) to your spine and assess for any signs of joint dysfunction. This dysfunction can arise from various factors such as injuries, muscular imbalances, or poor posture.
When there is joint dysfunction in the spine, it means that the joint is not moving as it should. Visualize it as being restricted or “stuck.” Through the process of performing an adjustment or manipulation to the affected areas, we reintroduce the correct joint motion and mechanics. This reestablishes proper biomechanics within the body, allowing for improved movement capability.
