Chiropractors are renowned as clinicians who are skilled in performing spinal adjustments. The term "adjustment" refers to the physical adjustment of the spinal vertebrae. The goal of such spinal adjustment is to reduce vertebral subluxation and return the spine to a more natural state of health. The word subluxation is derived from the Latin terms Sub ("less than" or "slight") and Luxate ("to dislocate" or "be misaligned"). Accordingly, vertebral subluxation means the slight dislocation or misalignment of the spinal vertebrae.

Chiropractic Adjustments

When a patient has a subluxation, chiropractic adjustment can be used to correct the misalignment, which in turn helps enhance joint mobility, reduce pain, reduce muscle spasm, and reduce nerve irritation or impingement. Chiropractic adjustment is a highly refined skill acquired during years of intensive training. The technique involves the manual application of a controlled force into the spinal vertebrae which have become misaligned and hypo mobile (limited in their range of motion). This procedure corrects vertebral alignment and is often accompanied by a clicking sound. While this sound might surprise first time chiropractic patients, it is merely the audible release of gas from within the spinal joints.

Atlas Chiropractic provides corrective chiropractic and accute trauma rehabilitation. We pride ourselves in being able to provide to our patients the opportunity to experience health and wellness absent of prescriptions and surgeries.

Furthermore, the procedure rarely causes discomfort or pain. In fact, many patients report a sense of immediate relief associated with the chiropractic adjustment and often note positive changes in their symptoms shortly after receiving care. If discomfort is experienced it is typically minor and resolves within a matter of days. To achieve optimal results patients may receive several adjustments over multiple chiropractic visits. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, the care plan may also include massage and functional restoration exercises.

Depending on your condition and/or ailments, our office will be able to provide you a custom care program that will allow you to obtain your health goals. We look forward to being your partners in your health!

Your body may hold stress patterns that carry tension. Tension builds to pain. This pain complex may be caused by auto accidents (major trauma) all along the pain causation spectrum to repetitive (minor) trauma, caused by computer work.
