What we do.
We start with a comprehensive spinal examination, which includes a complete health history, heat sensing instrumentation, spinal biomechanical analysis, x-ray impression of the spine before you are treated. It is very important to know each patient's specific condtion and relate their body age and size into account before treatmemt begins. After the testing is completed the doctor will show you the report of findings, explain the problem, detail the way it can be treated, and answer any questions/concerns you may have about your treatment.
The procedure that is used to correct the misaligned bones is to gently push the vertebra in a specific direction into its correct position. There are many different adjusting techniques. We use several of the main techniques. Our specialty is known as the Gonstead technique. This adjustment is very specific to the patient's bone structure. Many patients state that after the adjustment it feels like pressure has been relieved or they feel stress has been released. We perform the adjustment with our hands in very precise movements that correct the misalignment.
The term is used to describe the malfunction of the vertebra. Subluxation has four distinct problems associated within the spinal column: bone misalignment, nuerological pressure, muscle tension, and edema. Another way to explain a subluxation is the misalignment of vertebra, causing muscle spasms, swelling of the surrounding tissues, and nerve compression. Subluxations are corrected by a chiropractic adjustment through aligning the vertebra, which causes normal spinal motion to return, swelling to decrease, and reduced muscle spasms.
