Chiropractic Treatment Approaches

Spinal mobilization and spinal manipulation are two of the most commonly used chiropractic treatment techniques.

Spinal mobilizations is used to gently release pressure in joints and bring back proper joint function, simple stretches and a variety of tools are used. This treatment approach is best suited to patients that require a gentle touch.

In spinal manipulation, the chiropractor conducts manually manipulates the affected joint while placing you in different positions. This helps relieve pressure, and pain if any, as the muscles and joint are aligned to bring back proper joint function. As the doctor performs these impulses, air is released from the joints as they open up and proper motion is restored, resulting in the production of audible cracking sounds.

In addition to the above treatment approaches, your chiropractor may also incorporate other methods, such as electric stimulation, heat or ice, into your overall treatment plan.

If you find that you are experiencing swelling accompanied by numbness or severe pain, and cannot put weight on the affected joint you might be suffering from a sport related injury. It is important that you avoid the urge to bear with the pain, as the injury is likely to get worse with continued activity in the absence of proper, and immediate, medical attention.
