Adjustments & Manipulation

Adjustment_2.jpg Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.

When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can't function at our peak.

An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing his hands to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. You may hear a click that sounds  a bit like cracking knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of tension at the joint surface. 

Dr. Isacson's goal is to alleviate the majority of pain within the first two to three weeks with a series of visits. The first three to four visits achieve a thorough correction, while the next three to four visits work to stabilize the injured joint. Patients respond at different rates of recovery due to the duration of their complaint, age and the severity of the injury.

Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is in alignment, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to.
