At Langedyk Chiropractic, we offer the following adjustment techniques:
For this adjustment, the focus is on the spine. It is one of the most well-known chiropractic adjustments that use a swift, short movement to specific vertebral alignment to address any misaligned spinal components that are restricting your movement and causing pain. This adjustment produces an audible cracking sound which is the sound of trapped gas being released from between joints. These chiropractic adjustments at our clinic are unique to each patient because our chiropractor works with you to find the right amount of pressure for optimal benefit.
Not every patient can benefit from the direct thrust technique. For individuals with osteoporosis or other conditions that require a gentler approach, Langedyk Chiropractic uses spinal mobilization. This chiropractic adjustment’s goal is still the same as the more traditional thrust method, essentially creating proper spinal alignment and optimal join function. The difference is in that it uses slow movements like stretches or simple firm pressure on a particular area to encourage the spinal components to move into their rightful places.
Myofascial tissues make up a layer of membrane that covers the muscles of your body, supporting and connecting them. Myofascial release targets these tissues in therapy, often in the form of a massage. The technique helps loosen up stiff areas, freeing up movement and reducing pain, by manipulating specific trigger points on the body. Myofascial release is a great technique for those who have to deal with a lot of stress that causes muscle tension and stiffness.
Many people experience pain around their neck, upper back, or shoulders. Often this pain can lead to headaches or diminish the range of motion. Cervical spine manipulation is a chiropractic adjustment that focuses on the cervical spine area using the same techniques as the traditional direct thrust or the gentler spinal mobilization. This treatment can reduce pain, improve motion, and restore function to your neck and head region.
