Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic treatment covers a wide variety of services to help patients who suffer from any form of pain or have been injured.

A common misconception about chiropractic care is that we primarily perform spinal adjustments. Chiropractic is a profession that focuses on the treatment and recovery of many musculoskeletal injuries.  

At E3 Chiropractic + Wellness we are trained in many different treatment techniques to address a wide variety of injuries. This includes chiropractic adjustment, soft tissue (muscle) work, and personalized physical rehabilitation plans. We are specialists in conservative management of all injuries. Our office provides a natural alternative to recovery that is centered around movement, exercise, and hands-on therapy instead of surgical interventions or medications.

 

The Chiropractic Adjustment or Manipulation
The chiropractic adjustment refers to a technique that is designed to put movement in a joint that is fixated. The doctor uses this to help restore normal function and motion in a joint.

Generally, this technique employs gentle pressure or a shallow thrust to restore optimal motion. An adjustment is sometimes accompanied by a popping noise, which is the result of a bubble forming within the fluid of the joint. 

How does a chiropractic adjustment help me?
The adjustment is by far the most synonymous treatment with chiropractic. We are often asked how it is used, how it helps patients with pain, and if it is right for everyone.

The adjustment is a very powerful tool that we use on the majority of our patients. The goal of the adjustment is simple; to restore proper motion to an area that is not moving properly. When you are being evaluated for an adjustment, the Chiropractor will palpate (push) your spine and feel for any joint dysfunction. Joint dysfunction can occur from an injury, muscular imbalances, sitting with poor posture, or many other causes.

When there is joint dysfunction in the spine, it means that the joint does not move the way it was designed to. You can picture it as being restricted or stuck. When we perform an adjustment or manipulation to the areas with aberrant motion, we are reintroducing the proper joint motion and mechanics. This allows the body to have proper biomechanics and will enable you to move better.
