Treatment with a chiropractor involves spinal manipulation in an attempt to restore normal movement to the area. The goal of chiropractic treatment is to provide proper alignment to the spine and the musculoskeletal system, which will promote healing throughout the whole body.
Chiropractors conduct procedures using spinal manipulation and other diversified treatments. Attaining a proper alignment of the body's musculoskeletal structure including the spine will promote healing without either medication or surgery. The goal is to restore normal movement.
As the most accepted spinal manipulation technique used by chiropractors, diversified technique uses precise movements that are high-velocity and low-amplitude to manipulate spinal vertebrae back into alignment. The technique reduces dysfunction in the area by restoring the spinal column into proper alignment. Most chiropractic colleges provide instruction on the diversified technique, including New York Chiropractic College and Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College.
When your normal biomechanical function is restored using the diversified technique, your body will begin to heal. When you have vertebrae that are subluxated, this means that the vertebrae has moved out of its natural position. This creates pressure on the spine and irritates spinal nerves. Subluxation causes interference with the signals that spinal nerves transmit, and restoring function allows the nerves to function normally.
The diversified technique can also be used to provide adjustments to joints in the extremities in both the upper and lower limbs. Whether a knee, ankle, wrist or elbow is out of alignment, a chiropractor can help restore the function of your joint.
Nerve pressure is reduced when a subluxation is treated using speed and line of drive techniques. Dr. Collins may use hand held devices to ensure a precise thrust to an area, to control the force and speed of the adjustment with the utmost precision.
