Chiropractic Vacaville CA Chiropractic Subluxations And Adjustments

Chiropractors believe that you can acquire good health by maintaining a healthy nervous system, particularly having a healthy spinal column. There are instances where the vertebrae become misaligned and put pressure on the nerves surrounding the spinal cord. This misalignment is known as chiropractic subluxation.

When there is a subluxation in Vacaville, chiropractors use a technique that will help return the proper alignment of the vertebrae or sometimes mobilize them to allow better movement. These techniques are known as spinal adjustments or manipulations. During an adjustment, the vertebrae is rid of its misaligned position and is returned to its proper alignment in the spinal column. Once done, it allows the body to properly heal and maintain homeostasis.

Chiropractors have to undergo several training sessions just to master these adjustment techniques. These adjustments are mostly done by hand while there are also that uses specialized instruments. Each patient has different kinds of needs, which is why chiropractors will always recommend the best technique suited for your condition. As a patient, you can always ask your chiropractor about the technique that they will be using and how it is going to be done. Through this, you will have a peace of mind on what you're about to go through.

adjustment techniques in Vacaville

These are some of the common adjustment techniques that chiropractors normally use:

  • Release work - The chiropractor will apply a gentle pressure using their fingertips in separating the vertebrae.
  • Lumbar roll - The chiropractor will position the patient on their side, then they will use a quick and precise thrust to the misaligned vertebrae. After this, it will be returned to its proper position.
  • Toggle drop - The chiropractor will use crossed hands and will press it down firmly on a particular area of the spine. By using a quick and precise thrust, the spine will be adjusted. This technique helps in improving mobility in the vertebral joints.
  • Motion palpation - This is a hand-on procedure that helps determine if your vertebrae are moving freely in their normal planes of motion.
  • Table adjustments - A patient will lie down on a table that's installed with a "drop piece". A quick thrust will be applied by the chiropractor while also dropping the table at the same time. This table drop mechanism allows for a lighter adjustment without the use of twisting positions that can accompany the manual adjustment.
  • Instrument adjustments - This is often used as a gentle method of adjusting the spine. The patient will first lie on the table face down and the chiropractor will start using a spring-loaded activator instrument that does the adjusting. This is a technique that is also used on animals when they require some adjustments.
  • Manipulation is done under anesthesia - A chiropractor must be certified to use this technique in a hospital outpatient setting especially when the patient is not responding well to traditional adjustments.

Keep in mind that you won't be completely relieved of your symptoms if you only undergo a single session. You need to have multiple adjustments before you can experience the results.
