What to Expect
You're first day includes a brief but thorough exam of your main complaint followed by a full spine adjustment (What is an adjustment?)
The exam starts with a history of your main complaint: how long it's been going on, what was the cause, any past surgeries or accidents, etc. It continues with muscle tests, posture tests, range-of-motion testing, ending with a spinal screening checking for subluxations (What is a subluxation?).
What is an Adjustment
An adjustment is a fast and gentle push against your vertebrae that is subluxated allowing your spine to be in it's correct posture since it has been out of alignment for decades. Areas that are adjusted are: neck, mid back, low back, pelvis, hips, and extremities.
This results in the gradual correction of your body's posture, relaxation of your body's muscles, and relief in your body's stress and tension.
What is a Subluxation?
A Chiropractor's Bread and Butter
A subluxation is a minor misalignment of a joint in your body particularly the spine and pelvis that limits nerve functioning to your organs (imagine a pinched garden hose that can't allow you to water your plants).
Many other joints have subluxations that can be corrected with an adjustment such as shoulders, knees, elbows, ankles, etc.
Subluxations are with you you're entire life. The best part is your body does a good job adapting to them, until there comes a time when you start to develop aches and pains particularly in your low back and neck. This is where we say "must be old age" when in reality people in their teens and twenties feel it too. It all depends on the things you do day-to-day that determine how fast or slow the aches and pains develop.
Some Causes of Subluxations:
-Sleeping on your stomach
-Falls as a kid and as an adult
-Poor posture (sitting in front of a computer for many hours at a time)
-Looking down on your phone (yes it feels awkward to hold it up to eye level but it helps!)
