Chiropractors are primarily concerned with locating and removing vertebral subluxations. These subluxations cause an interference in the natural ability to adapt to stress, traumas and toxins. Subluxation over a prolonged period of time will cause dis-ease!
A vertebral subluxation is a complex of functional and or structural and or pathological articular (joint) changes that compromise neural integrity and may influence organ system function and general health.
Your chiropractor, using their highly refined skills, will check the patients spine for any misalignments, fixations or other abnormalities(vertebral subluxations). If the subluxation or other abnormalities are detected, the chiropractor will generally apply a gentle force in a corrective manner to the affected spinal area.
Chiropractors use many specialized techniques to identify and treat these spinal abnormalities and optimize overall health. In addition to spinal adjusting, soft tissue techniques such as Graston, dietary and nutritional counseling, stretching and lifestyle modification programs are commonly implemented
