The main form of treatment chiropractors use is called an adjustment. An adjustment is a non-invasive procedure consisting of a precise directed movement which restores a joints ability to move. Adjustments have been proven to help relieve pain and discomfort and restore range of motion. Most adjustments result in a popping or cracking sound which is the release of pressure within the joint capsule.
At CORE our Chiropractors take great pride in patient comfort and are capable of gentle, non noise making, joint mobilization that accomplishes the same effect, just may take a little longer. Chiropractors can adjust nearly any joint, and when combined with other muscle therapies it is an extremely effective form of treatment.
There are many different techniques of adjusting. Some of these include Gonstead, Diversified, and Thompson drop. The Doctors at CORE are trained and proficient in all of these disciplines.
