Chiropractic adjustment works by realigning the spine through gentile manipulation. Once the spine is realigned, the surrounding structures in the back or neck can relax. Joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and cartilage can then heal on their own.
Our Chiropractic Adjustment Uses Special Tools
Chiropractic adjustment brings the musculoskeletal system into alignment by realigning the spine and extremities. This improves the functioning of the spine and nervous system. It also helps with reducing, or even relieving pain. But how? Not necessarily with the loud cracking that you may think of when you consider a chiropractor. Instead, our chiropractic care center uses special tools, like an activator and an AnthroStim.
The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique uses a spring-loaded, hand-held mechanical instrument called an activator. It uses low-force for realigning the spine and extremities. The activator is so quick that the body isn’t likely to tense up in response, which can make it more effective. It is also gentle enough that it does not add any additional bending movements to joints that are already in pain. That’s one of the reasons the activator is very popular with our younger patients, as well as those who are elderly or have acute pain.
The AnthroStim is like a next-generation activator. It delivers a series of small, rapid thrusts each second. These thrusts work together with the natural feedback system of the central nervous system. There’s no popping or cracking at all. That’s why it’s a comfortable procedure for patients—especially children, the elderly and people with very serious back injuries.
How We Use Chiropractic Adjustment to Help Our Patients
Proactive Chiropractic and Rehab Center uses chiropractic adjustment to alleviate and prevent different types of pain. Rather than just masking pain with medication, Dr. Khlebopros realigns the spine and fixes the cause of the problem. He has a solid record of successfully treating pain so that you can experience long-term improvement.
You may feel relief on your very first visit. But sometimes it may take a few visits to achieve optimum relief. Patients also visit our chiropractic care clinic regularly to prevent future pain by making sure that their bodies stay aligned.
