At Total Chiropractic Health Center, one of the many adjustment styles we use is referred to as Diversified. Among the most popular chiropractic techniques, this hands-on approach allows us to manually adjust your spinal bones into proper position.
Diversified can be successful in helping patients of all ages and stages get back to living the life they love, naturally.
First, an analysis of your spine is performed. This can initially involve a case history and X-ray pictures of your spine.
Subsequent visits may include motion palpation, with the chiropractor feeling the spinal joints move as you turn and bend. Or, a leg check may be performed, to uncover an imbalance in the neck or lower spine.
When misaligned spinal bones are identified, a specific manual thrust is administered. The direction, speed, depth and angle that are used is the result of years of experience, practice and a thorough understanding of spinal mechanics.
The energy delivered during the thrust may produce a slight “popping” sound from the shifting of gas and fluids in the joint. There’s no need to worry or be frightened about this–in fact, most patients find adjustments relaxing and relieving!
While improving spinal biomechanics can reduce nervous system interferences, virtually all joints of the body can be adjusted to help restore proper range of motion. Simply put, many patients find that it’s easier to carry out tasks in their daily life without noticing pain, aches or other problems.
