What’s the difference between a Manipulation and an Adjustment?
Are all adjustments the same?
Is there a difference between spinal manipulation and structural/postural improvement?
Mobilizing the joints of the spine is a practice most chiropractors, some physical therapists and a few osteopaths use to alleviate patients’ pain and enhance their range of motion. This care can be effective for short-term pain relief.
Research has proven that the source of a person’s pain can often be traced back to poor spinal position/structure. Although spinal manipulation may provide temporary relief, it is not a long-term or lasting solution to the existing health problem.
Therefore, in addition to mobilizing, we work to biomechanically and permanently improve posture/spinal structure if it deviates significantly from the norm, creating long-term pain relief and long-term enhancement of overall body functioning.
The impact of spinal structural improvement is far-reaching:
- Halting/slowing spinal degeneration/arthritis
- Less mechanical stress on internal organs
- Better range of motion
- Increased energy and overall health
- Ability to do things again that you thought were lost forever!
