I use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach I use is based on my judgment and years of experience.
After identifying which spinal bones have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is administered to free up “stuck” joints. At Chiropractic Naturally we use an adjusting style commonly referred to as “Diversified.”
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 Dr. Swanson 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.
With the malposition of one or more spinal bones 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. This sound may be interesting, but is not a guide as to the value or effectiveness of the adjustment.
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.
The sooner you take action, the sooner I may be able to help you. Arrange a private consultation. Use this time to describe your health issue and share your goals. This is often helpful in determining if you’re likely to be a good candidate for chiropractic care.
This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust. We use one of the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world.
First the Evaluation
We begin by analyzing how well your spine moves. We test how well you turn and bend. While you’re lying face down, we’ll evaluate the length of your legs. This simple procedure can reveal significant differences in leg lengths.This time-tested protocol tells us if vertebral subluxations exist and their location. It also helps us know when to adjust and when not to adjust.
The Adjusting Instrument
The Activator is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust. Because it’s many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand, the body rarely tightens to resist, making adjustments comfortable and effective. It’s also helpful for adjusting elbows, wrists, knees and other joints of the body.
The Follow Up
After your adjustment, we retest to make sure changes have been produced. Testing afterwards helps us deliver high-quality care and high levels of patient satisfaction. If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let me know. I want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
Our goal is to eliminate all apprehension and make you feel at home. One of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance.
