Doctors of chiropractic spend years learning to examine the spine and understand the complex motions of the vertebrae. Additionally, they learn to administer a specific spinal adjustment. Considerable skill and dexterity are required to become proficient in the art of chiropractic adjusting.
The primary treatment by your doctor will be specific vertebral adjustments. Once spinal areas have been adjusted to restore normal movement, your spinal joints, muscles or nerves will begin to adapt once again to their normal position and function.
Treatment consists of placing the patient on a custom designed table, chair or other equipment and then applying pressure, using specialized chiropractic techniques to the areas of the spine or extremities that are out of proper alignment. The goal is to restore these areas to their normal range of motion.
