If you have never looked into the world of chiropractic spinal manipulation, you could be missing out on an important modality for helping you enjoy optimal health, wellness, comfort, and injury recovery. Chiropractic adjustments to the spinal column can ease pain, enhance joint motion, improve your posture, and help your nervous system function normally. That's why we're happy to offer this non-surgical healing modality at our chiropractic clinic.
The Purpose of Chiropractic Spinal Adjustment
The human spine consists of a complex arrangement of vertebrae, discs, joints, and the muscle groups that allow the spine to twist, turn, and bend. It also hosts the spinal cord, with major nerves running through the vertebral spaces to serve the rest of the body.
Unfortunately, many problems can afflict this delicate combination of moving and non-moving parts. Even the smallest subluxation, or joint imbalance, can limit joint motion, causing neck or back pain. Dislodged or herniated discs can press against nerve roots, producing neurological discomfort or weakness in the extremities while also affecting your systemic health. An unbalanced spine may throw the rest of your body out of balance, leaving you with chronic aches and pains.
Chiropractic spinal adjustment can relieve these problems. Dr. David Picarello uses manual or instrument-assisted techniques that deliver small but focused force to spinal components, shifting them back into position. By normalizing your spinal alignment, we can ease neurological symptoms, reduce muscular strain, and help your neck and back move more freely.
What to Expect From Your Adjustment Session
Chiropractic spinal manipulation can be performed safely on most individuals of all ages, including newborns. An initial evaluation analyzes your spinal alignment, checking for any imbalances that may be producing your health challenges. Mountain Park Chiropractic will ensure that you are a good candidate for chiropractic adjustment before proceeding. Repeated chiropractic adjustments help the body accept the changes in joint position, although you may feel substantial relief almost immediately.
Don't be alarmed if you hear a popping or cracking sound during your spinal adjustment. This harmless phenomenon occurs when trapped gases escape from within the joints.
If you're ready to boost your health, flexibility, balance, and everyday comfort, our chiropractic team is ready to help you achieve those goals. Contact our clinic at (480) 706-0056 to discuss the details of chiropractic spinal manipulation and schedule an initial appointment.
How Can Chiropractic Help me?
Our diversified chiropractic techniques address the biomechanical failures in each section of the spine. Techniques involve low force adjustments to the spinal column to increase mobility and decrease pain. These treatment methods are beneficial for individuals suffering from headaches, neck or back pain, car accident injuries, whiplash trauma, and work or sports injuries.
Additional chiropractic techniques include cox flexion-distraction to treat disc injuries causing back and leg pain, activator treatment and Thompson Drop adjustments.
This technique treats disc injuries involving back and leg pain. A specialized table is used to gently stretch the spine to promote traction and alleviate disc pressure.
The Activator treatment method utilizes a small handheld instrument with a soft rubber tip to deliver a light force adjustment to the spinal segment in need of treatment.
Thompson Drop Table
The Thompson Drop Table Technique analyzes leg length to make determinations as to which joints are effected and need to be adjusted. The adjustive procedure involves the elevation of a cushioned segment of the table that is under the joint to be adjusted. The elevated segment is tension controlled so the appropriate force can be applied through the joint as the table drops with the pressure. This helps facilitate the proper motion and physiological function of the joint while decreasing pain and inflammation, and promoting proper nerve function.
