The Chiropractic Adjustment

As defined by the World Chiropractic Alliance

The goal of the chiropractic adjustment is to correct spinal subluxations (misplacement of spinal vertebrae) by applying pressure to the bone to “unlock” it from its improper position.

Tailored Techniques & Therapies

Our doctors are skilled and experienced in offering a variety of chiropractic services designed to help each person reach his or her full potential. We utilize a variety of adjustment techniques chosen to match each individual. We also incorporate core stabilization therapy, therapeutic exercises, neuromuscular re-education, cervical traction, and decompression as necessary to help each Practice Member obtain optimal results from his or her care.

Cervical Traction

Cervical traction can relieve muscle spasms by lengthening soft tissues and increasing the space between cervical vertebrae. Depending on the care received from the chiropractor, there are a variety of manual and mechanical traction techniques we utilize to restore the natural cervical curve back into the spine.

Neuromuscular Reeducation (NMR)

Among many things, Neuromuscular Reeducation techniques are used to improve posture, coordination, and balance when done consecutively and repeatedly. These therapies can also help with upper and lower thoracic functions.

Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic techniques are designed to improve and restore musculoskeletal and neurologic function. These exercises will help strengthen and stabilize the spine. This helps you maintain your adjustments, thereby moving you to lifestyle care more quickly.

 Spinal Decompression

Offered in the Carmel, Indiana location, spinal decompression can be achieved non-surgically and is used to help conditions that result in chronic back pain, such as disc bulges, disc herniation, sciatica, spinal stenosis, and isthmic and degenerative spondylolisthesis. We find spinal decompression to be the most successful when part of a comprehensive care plan.
