Chiropractic is a science dedicated to and based on the human body, particularly the relationship between skeletal, muscular and the nervous system. When balanced, these vital systems interact to preserve and restore your health. Chiropractic is a hands-on approach to health and wellness, relying on the body to heal itself and correcting any mis-alignments that may prevent healing from occurring.
Chiropractic adjustments are designed to:
- Treat mechanical restrictions (dysfunctional joints)
- Increase your range of motion
- Eliminate excessive strain on your muscles
- Block pain impulses and increase your comfort level
Adjustments are the central part of chiropractic treatment. The chiropractic adjustment is a therapeutic manipulation that uses controlled force, leverage, direction, amplitude, and velocity directed at specific joints. In other words, an adjustment involves a lot more than simply opening up a joint.
Functional Rehabilitation is a program involving evaluation and performance of rehabilitation exercises that mimic real life. With this type of program, a patient will be able to return to work, daily activities, and competition sooner and with better mechanics to improve performance and prevent future recurrences of injury and pain. To maintain the accomplishments achieved in the chiropractic office, exercise and in turn strength are necessary components. Strength not only trains the proper muscles on how and when to work, but it also results in a longer maintenance of the chiropractic adjustment. Below are a list of functional rehabilitation programs that are commonly used.
Spinal stabilization reduces the strain placed on the spinal joints through effective bracing and muscular support (core strength). This allows for improved athletic performance through effective power transfer and a decrease in wasted movements.
Training proper movement patterns
Properly training movement patterns decreases the strain placed on joints and connective tissues including the inter-vertebral disc. This reduces the risk of future aggravations and allows you to get back to work and play faster.
