Chiropractic Adjustments

Risks A trained and licensed Chiropractor can perform these adjustments. But some people can experience side effects for a few days like: Headache Fatigue Continuing pain from an injury treated in the past Possible complications in chiropractic adjustments include: A herniated disk Compression of nerves in the lower spinal column, a condition known as cauda equina syndrome, leading to pain, weakness, loss of feeling in your legs, and loss of bowel or bladder control A certain type of stroke (vertebral artery dissection) after neck (cervical) manipulation

Adjustments Techniques A chiropractor has a range of techniques to choose from. A doctor can make some of his patient to sit for some adjustment, to lie down to some or can use specially designed tables with moveable head or foot rests for other patients, depending on the chiropractic problem. Diversified technique - Full-spine manipulation to restore proper movement and alignment of spine and joint dysfunction. It’s a high velocity low amplitude thrust technique. Activator technique – It uses a spring loaded tool created by Arlan Fuhr, to deliver precise adjustments to the spine. It is a softer chiropractic treatment technique, in which the device is characterized as MFMA instrument. MFMA stands for a Mechanical Force Manual Assisted. Thompson technique – It relies on a drop table and detailed procedural protocols. Gonstead - It emphasizes on evaluating the spine along with specific adjustment that avoids rotational vectors. Cox/flexion-distraction – It is a gentle, low-force adjusting procedure which mixes chiropractic with osteopathic principles and utilizes specialized adjusting tables with movable parts Sacro-Occipital Technique – It models the spine as a torsion bar. Nimmo Receptor-Tonus Technique – It is also known as neuromuscular therapy (NMT). It is a form of massage. Pressure is applied to the skin in the quasi-static form, which stimulates specific areas of skeletal muscle. Applied Kinesiology – This technique provides the functional status of the body. It is an alternative medicine method used for diagnosis and purpose of therapy. Chiropractors select the techniques which will most effectively correct dislocation with a minimum of force. The “talent” of adjusting requires skill and training rather than brute strength. Few patients can feel any discomfort during the adjustment and some can experience audible sounds which are just tiny pockets of gas releasing with a pop, which is completely normal.
