How Your Body Gets Damaged

There are big and small traumas you may encounter in life. These include car accidents, sports injuries, walking in the wrong shoes or slouching at your desk. To relieve the effects of this damage, a chiropractor uses a precise adjustment.

The techniques used for adjustments include the following:

  • Diversified. By combining the best of the best, this hands-on method applies what works best for you. A high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust is used.
  • Activator®. A tool is used to manipulate any joint of the body, from head to toe.
  • Gonstead. This style of treatment addresses the joints of the body and is appropriate in particular cases.
  • Stretching. If you are in an acute stage, a gentle form of motion can be applied to get the joint to go back into place.
  • Acupuncture. The joints and muscles around the joint are relaxed to help everything stay in the proper alignment.
  • Osteopathic manipulation. The opposite of chiropractic, osteopathy uses low velocity and a high amplitude, applying a gentle pull.
