There are many different types of chiropractic adjustments. Here are just a few that we offer. Each patient’s treatment is 100% individualized so these different methods may or may not pertain to your needs.
A cranial adjustment is performed when headache or migraine symptoms persist and are not responding to traditional treatment to the cervical spine. It also is performed on a child who has had a concussion and their reading ability has been affected or a child who’s speech is not on par with their peers
A cranial procedure consists of testing for any displacement of the several cranial plates in your skull that can become locked up with another plate resulting in increased pressure of cerebral spinal fluid. The cranial plates can become displaced due to several things such as a hit to the head, concussion, viral infection or illness.
Treatment consists of a very gentle adjustment to the displaced cranial plate. Test and re-test assures that the proper alignment has been made. Results can be amazingly fast and profound.
Extremity adjustments are done for the shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, hips, knees, ankles and toes to help with a myriad of complaints such as carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, sprained and painful joints.
Immune System Adjustments
Your body’s own natural defenses are the best for healing itself, but sometimes it needs a boost. That is where an immune system adjustment comes in. By stimulating certain meridian points in the body, we can help people boost their immune system and naturally fight off the symptoms of a cold or the flu. In addition, we can help those patients who are immune suppressed stay healthy and avoid getting sick in the first place.
Pediatric adjustments are adjustments specifically designed for children. Different techniques are employed to account for their developing spines. We commonly see children suffering with colic, chronic ear infections, scoliosis, headaches, sports injuries and post-concussion.
