Chiropractic is a profession, not a treatment. As a profession, chiropractors are qualified and equipped medical professionals with unique training to help treat many prevalent health conditions. Chiropractors use treatments, that include joint manipulation, physical therapy modalities, patient education, manual therapy, nutrition, and rehabilitation exercises, to approach each patient's individual circumstances.
As chronic pain proceeds to rise inside the US healthcare system, chiropractors employ proven methods to lessen pain and disability without the need for medications and surgery in most cases.
Pain is the alarm system of our body. We need to get to the root cause of it so that we can get free from it. Every patient has their own story and their own goals. When you're not moving properly, your body will start to feel pain. We make sure you are educated and treated with your goal in mind. We want you to be able to do the things you love. Maximize the function. The final stage of treatment involves making sure you stay healthy.
We want you to feel empowered to participate in your recovery. You'll learn the tools to self-treat.
You'll get a referral to a strength trainer and exercises you can do at home. Actively participate in your long term health for the rest of your life.
Generally, this technique employs gentle pressure or a shallow thrust to restore optimal motion. An adjustment is sometimes accompanied by a pop noise, which results from the joint’s release of nitrogen gas.
You want it to go away. You want it to go away fast. And you want it to go away without taking up too much of your time and money. We can do that. However, we have to do that without sacrificing thoroughness.
That is what a skilled Motion Palpation Doctor does when examining a patient. The Motion Palpation Institute, has a dynamic and gentle way for assessing the spine or other joints (ankle, foot, knee etc.). This often includes examining patients’ movements as they walk, squat, run or throw and then feeling the specific joint’s movement by hand.
Do you feel like you need gentle and light? We can do gentle and light. Need someone to "drop the hammer" and "get things to move"? Yes, we can do that too. Each person is different, therefore each approach is different to match.
