At Tussing Chiropractic Clinic
There is a wide variation of chiropractic treatment techniques used. The focus is on your body dysfunctions that can result from irregularities of your spinal structure and its movement or lack of. These irregularities are called subluxations. You will have pain at the start, but the pain sometimes goes way, but not it's cause.
We rely on our hands-on procedures, orthopedic tests, and spinal imaging (X-ray, Cat scans, or MRIs) to determine structural and functional problems. We use manipulation to promote normal bodily function by correcting or decreasing structural deviations. The principal procedure used by many chiropractors is a form of manipulation known as an adjustment which refers to a variety of manual mechanical interventions.
Mobilization is movements administered by the clinician within physiologic joint space in order to increase overall range of motion. Most subluxated joints are fixed or have very little range of motion.
There are hundreds of ways or techniques to adjust the spine. Each chiropractor becomes highly skilled in a variety of adjustment procedures that are most suitable for your age, body type and condition.
