Spinal Manipulation – A high-velocity thrust that stretches a joint beyond its passive range of movement in order to increase its mobility. Manipulation is usually accompanied by an audible pop or click, and often times an immediate release of joint pressure. It’s designed to relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. It’s often used to treat back, neck, shoulder, and headache pain.
Applied Kinesiology – also know as muscle strength testing, is a method of diagnosis and treatment based on the belief that various muscles are linked to particular organs and glands, and that specific muscle weakness can signal distant internal problems such as nerve damage, reduced blood supply, chemical imbalances or other organ or gland problems. Practitioners contend that by correcting this muscle weakness, you can help heal a problem in the associated internal organ.
Traction – Traction approaches will vary based on the individual needs of the patient, but may include the following:
- Mechanical traction – Motorized pulleys with adjustable tension settings stretch the patient.
- Manual traction – The chiropractor may use his or her bare hands, or may use a manual pulley system, to stretch the patient’s spine. Weights may or may not be attached to the manual traction pulley system.
- Anti-gravity traction – An inversion table is used so that the body weight of the patient exerts a downward stretch on the spine.
