Chiropractic Adjustments for Pain Relief

chiropractic adjustmentsStress placed on the body can upset the spinal cord and disrupt the signals between the brain and body. This disruption can lead to the manifestation of disease and painful conditions all over the body. At Health Star Clinic, we specialize in providing chiropractic adjustments to help reduce painful conditions that can occur in the back, neck, shoulders and legs.

These adjustments are used to re-align and position the spine by using a quick gentle push on the targeted spinal joint. This is often performed using the chiropractor’s hands or a small chiropractic instrument. This movement places the spinal column back into proper alignment which allows the body to naturally heal itself.

Types of Adjustments offered by Health Star Clinic

  • Full Spine – Corrects misalignments / subluxations along the spine by repositioning points of interference. Relieves pain and pressure from surrounding nerves in the back.
  • Extremity manipulation – Works to increase the range of motion and functionality of joints in the hands, arms, legs and hips. Manipulation is effective in treating symptoms of bursitis, carpal tunnel, arthritis, and tendonitis.
  • Active release – Active Release Technique Muscular (ART) is a hands-on approach to evaluate mobility and tightness of soft tissue. The treatment breaks up adhesions with stretches and directs lymphatic flow to increase muscle range and mobility.
  • Sacro-occipital (SOT) – Way of identifying nervous system imbalances in the spine with focused pressure at the base of the skull. The response from the nervous system from this technique shows the source of the pain and imbalances along the spine.

  • Thompson (Drop) – Enhance the motion to the area being adjusted by using a segmental table. That table segment is then dropped utilizing the body’s natural movement to correct spinal imbalance.
  • Upper cervical – Adjustments around the neck. Adjustments address the subluxation (pinched nerve) in the upper cervical area.
  • Flexion/Distraction – Slow, gentle, pulls are used to release pressure on the spine and allow the discs to re-shape. This allows pressure relief on strained nerves and eliminates pain symptoms.
  • Activator – A small chiropractic device that delivers a spring loaded measured impulse to the spine. The Activator technique can be used for patients of all ages, but is especially helpful for restless children. Patients of older age with weaker bone conditions find this gentle technique very effective as well.
