Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic Adjustments

One of the primary spinal rehabilitative therapy techniques used by CORE Health Centers of Beaumont KY is spinal adjustment, also known as a chiropractic adjustment. After going over the results of your tests from the initial examination, CORE Health Centers of Beaumont KY will begin you chiropractic care, which includes chiropractic adjustments. A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is a common therapeutic treatment for back pain, lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and hip pain. The goal of such chiropractic adjustment is to reduce vertebral subluxation and return the spine to a more natural state of health. CORE Health Centers of Beaumont KY use many chiropractic adjustment techniques in our office, which allows us to provide many options for our patients.

A chiropractic adjustment refers to a chiropractor applying manipulation to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. Chiropractic adjustment is a highly refined skill acquired during years of intensive training. To do that, CORE Health Centers’ chiropractor will apply pressure to the bone and unlock, or free, them from their improper position. The bone will then be free to align itself correctly. When a patient has a subluxation, chiropractic adjustment can be used to correct the misalignment, which in turn helps enhance joint mobility, reduce pain, reduce muscle spasm, and reduce nerve irritation or impingement. During chiropractic adjustment treatments, a relieving sensation is felt most of the time, although minor discomfort has been reported if the surrounding muscles are in spasm or the patient tenses up during this chiropractic care.

What is an Adjustment?

The chiropractic adjustment is a therapeutic manipulation that uses controlled force, leverage, direction, amplitude, and velocity directed at specific joints. In other words, an adjustment involves a lot more than simply opening up a joint. Chiropractic adjustment is a highly refined skill acquired during years of intensive training.

Activator (Low Force) Method

At CORE Health Centers, we utilize different techniques and methods for performing chiropractic adjustments. One of those techniques is the Activator Method Chiropractic Technique, which is a diagnostic and treatment system that allows our chiropractors to diagnose and treat many types of back pain, neck pain, and headaches, both chronic headaches and migraines. The Activator Method uses a small, hand-held instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to delivers a gentle impulse force to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted spinal vertebra or joint.

ArthroStim

At CORE Health Centers, we utilize different techniques and methods for performing chiropractic adjustments. One of those techniques is the ArthroStim Method, which uses modern technology to gently but efficiently adjust the vertebrae in your spine, as well as other joints in your body. During a manual adjustment, a chiropractic uses their sense of touch to detect and correct subluxations. The ProAdjuster method uses advanced technology to do the same things, providing a gentle approach that is appropriate for everyone from infants to seniors.

Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP)

Better postural alignment has been a sought-after goal in the treatment of human ailments for years. Only recently, however, has there been a non-invasive technique that can correct spine and postural alignment, correcting faulty alignments, and reversing problems previously thought to a normal state. At CORE Health Centers, we utilize different techniques and methods for performing chiropractic adjustments. One of those techniques is the Chiropractic BioPhysics Technique, an extremely progressive, scientific, and established chiropractic care technique that corrects and restores your spine back to the proper alignment resulting in better posture alignment and health.

Manual Adjustments

At CORE Health Centers, we utilize different techniques and methods for performing chiropractic adjustments. One of those techniques is the Manual Adjustment Chiropractic Technique, which is a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust, which is a swift, short movement to encourage proper vertebral alignment. The Manual Adjustment involves using the hands to flex, mobilize, and/or adjust a spinal joint in order to correct any abnormalities in the joint and relieve pain, stiffness, swelling, or other symptoms. The reason CORE Health Centers’ chiropractors will use manual adjustment, is to attempt to correct the function, motion, or alignment of one or more of your vertebrae. The misalignment in the joints of your spine is called subluxation. When your vertebrae becomes misaligned, exert pressure is then being pushed on the surrounding nerves. This can result in tingling, stiffness, weakness, and pain throughout the back, shoulders, neck, arms, legs, and anywhere else on the body. By using manual adjustments, CORE Health Centers’ chiropractors can realigning the problematic vertebrae and help to put these symptoms to rest.

Logan Basic Technique

At CORE Health Centers, we utilize different techniques and methods for performing chiropractic adjustments. One of those techniques is the Logan Basic Technique, which uses the muscular structure which surrounds the sacrum as a lever to balance the complete spinal structure. The Logan Basic technique is a very low force chiropractic adjustment treatment involves the muscular structure that surrounds the sacrum and is used as a lever system. The Logan Basic Chiropractic Technique treats the muscles that control spinal balance in order to release this tension. Logan basic technique is based on the theory that soft-tissue therapies, when applied with extremely light pressure, are more helpful in relaxing the tissues when compared to deeper pressures commonly used in other soft tissue therapies such as massage.

Adjustments for Kids

A child encounters many physical stresses during their growing years. The resulting problems in children’s spines can occur at almost any point in their development and growth. CORE Health Centers of Beaumont KY not only provides adults chiropractic adjustments, but kids as well. The chiropractic adjustment for kids is a therapeutic manipulation that uses controlled force, leverage, direction, amplitude, and velocity directed at specific joints. The cause of many newborn health complaints such as colic, reflux, breastfeeding difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions, and chronic infections can often be traced to nervous system irritation caused by spinal and cranial misalignments.

Adjustments for Seniors

As our bodies age, it becomes more and more important to stay healthy and active. While bones and muscles may weaken, it is still possible to be out and about and doing the things we love. Many senior citizens face chronic pain or other issues related to the body deteriorating over time.
