Chiropractic Adjustments and Techniques
Chiropractic adjustments involve gentle force to misaligned or otherwise dysfunctional spinal (and other) joints. The most common forms of dysfunction are restricted joint range of motion, abnormal posture and weight distribution, nerve root compression, scar tissue formation, and misaligned vertebrae. The goal of chiropractic is to remove these deficits in order to facilitate the natural healing process. This is comparable to the healing observed after a small cut. Picking or otherwise irritating the scab ultimately prolongs and attenuates the normal process. Left alone and uninhibited, this process occurs involuntarily and near flawlessly. The same is true for your internal structures. In this case the “scab” is untreated traumatic injury (new or old), chronic poor posture, repetitive wear and tear at work, bending and lifting, and so on. Since symptoms are always a product of dysfunction, reestablishment of normal function results in more efficient healing, thus subsequent amelioration of your symptoms.
Our techniques vary based on condition and individual. Dr. Schneider and Dr. Kalantarov are able to cater to a wide variety of different conditions, ages, body types and personal preferences. These techniques include Full spine, Diversified, Thompson, Gonstead, Cox, Toggle, Webster, SOT, and Activator techniques.
