Chiropractic F.A.Q.

Hands-On - Traditional Manual Adjustments


A healthy, well functioning spine can benefit your entire body! Spinal manipulation or adjusting the spine, is a time proven approach to healing back pain, neck pain and other painful conditions throughout the body. Adjustments gently restore normal motion to what feel like “stuck” joints. Freeing those joints reduces strain on the muscles that are trying to move them. Also, since the spine is so close to your spinal nerves, adjustments stimulate the nervous system and offer a reduction in pain.




Hands-On - Soft Tissue Therapies


The spine does not exist on its own! Without muscles, we would not be able to move or even stand up. Chiropractic treatment of muscles is crucial to recovering from many strains and injuries. Techniques such as pressure point therapy, myofascial release and stretching may be used to treat you. Each person and condition is unique, so your treatment will depend on your personal health needs.




Home Care - Rehabilitative Exercises


Rehabilitative exercises done at home support your in-clinic care. Rehabilitative exercises assist your recovery process after an injury or repetitive strain. Simple exercises targeted to help improve your condition will be prescribed. Targeted exercises support the specific weaknesses causing your pain. Once you are on the road to recovery, regular general exercise will help you maintain good health.




Technology Treatment - Impulse IQ Adjusting


Comfortable, computerized, and safe adjusting. Just as lasers have replaced scalpels in some surgeries, advanced technology has become available to Chiropractors to assist in delivering Chiropractic adjustments. The Impulse IQ adjusting instrument is controlled by a micro-computer housed within the device. This produces a controlled force that Chiropractors can use to treat different parts of the body. The computer-assist inside the Impulse IQ gives the Chiropractor feedback about how the problem area is responding in real-time, for a custom tailored treatment. As the adjustment is delivered by the Impulse instrument, the precise amount of spinal motion and its speed are determined by the micro-computer in the device. As the spine rebounds from each thrust, information is fed into the computer. The technology in the device then sets the speed of further thrusts to match how your spine is moving. When the adjustment is accomplished, the machine shuts off. Chiropractic adjustments with the Impulse adjusting instrument feel like a light tapping sensation on the area that is being treated. In most cases the treatment is painless and after the adjustment many patients feel improved mobility and relief from pain.

Technology Treatment - Custom Orthotics


Your feet are your foundation. Computerized Gait Scan Analysis is a computerized system for analyzing pressure patterns and weight distribution of the feet. This is an accurate and less subjective system which, when combined with in depth testing of the feet and ankles, pinpoints which patients would benefit from custom orthotics. Read in-depth details on our Orthotic page.
