Functional Medicine Explained

Chiropractic Realignment and Adjustments El Paso, TX.

Share

Chiropractic believes that optimal health comes from having a healthy nervous system, particularly a healthy spinal column.

Time, work, school, and everyday living means movement. And like anything that moves over and over again, at some point it’s going to get stuck or slip out of place. When the spine’s vertebrae become misaligned, pressure begins to press on the nerves that come out of the spinal cord. This is called a chiropractic subluxation and requires chiropractic realignment.

 

 

Chiropractors use a variety of techniques to mobilize the spinal discs so they can move freely along with returning them back into place and in their proper positions.

These techniques are called spinal manipulations/adjustments.

During an adjustment, the vertebra is released or set free from the misaligned position and put back into the proper position in the spine’s column.

Adjustments allow the body to heal and maintain homeostasis.

Chiropractors are trained in a variety of adjustment techniques

  • Some are done by hand
  • Some use of specialized instruments

 

Ultrasound in physical therapy, treatment of shoulder muscles

 

Every patient is different, therefore a chiropractor will go through various treatment options with the patient, to choose the best technique and treatment plan for the patient’s condition.  Ask the chiropractor which technique they will be doing and how it works.

Adjustment Techniques

Chiropractors use the following:

Toggle Drop

Using crossed hands a chiropractor presses down firmly on the areas that need adjusting and realignment. With a precise and quick thrust, the chiropractor adjusts the spine. This improves mobility in the vertebral joints.

 

 

Motion Palpation

This technique determines if the vertebrae are freely moving and with normal motion.

Lumbar Roll

The patient is on their side when the chiropractor performs a quick and precise thrust to the misaligned vertebra, that returns them to their proper position.

 

Treating Female Patient’s Spine

 

Release Work

Gentle pressure is applied with the fingertips which separate the vertebrae and opens them up.

 

Physiotherapist during an Achilles tendon treatment but the same technique applies to the spine

Table adjustment

Here a specialized table is used that drops incrementally with the adjustment. The chiropractor applies a quick thrust at the same time the table drops. This allows for lighter adjustments without twisting and turning that go with manual adjustments.

 

 

Instrument adjustments

This is considered the gentlest method of spinal adjustment.

The patient lies on the table and the chiropractor uses an activator instrument to perform the adjustment/realignment/s.

 

TENS, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation in Physical Therapy. Therapist Positioning Electrodes onto Patient’s Lower Back

The nervous system, which consists of the (spine/nerves/brain) is the central headquarters of the body. Subluxation removal helps the body function at its optimum level. Chiropractic adjustments reduce pressure on the nerves and ease the flow of communication and signals going back and forth.
