The term “adjustment” refers to the specific manipulation chiropractors apply to vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. The objective of the chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation, which results in an increased range of motion, reduced nerve irritability and improved function.
Dr. Amy is trained in a variety of techniques ranging from manual adjusting to low force activator adjusting. The technique used is based on what each individual patient needs. If you prefer a certain technique, please let Dr. Amy know and we will accommodate you!
Chiropractic Adjustments for Children
Chiropractic care is safe and effective for all ages, from conception through delivery, and from newborn on. Adjusting style is modified based on the age of the patient. The force needed to adjust an infant is no more than what is used to test the ripeness of a tomato! We encourage parents to have their newborns checked for subluxation soon after birth, as subluxation can be caused by malposition in-utero or any difficulties during birth. Many times, subluxation in children is asymptomatic, but can manifest as problems later on in life. Symptoms of subluxations in infants can include feeding difficulties, excessive spitting up, excessive crying or fussiness, reflux, colic, and ear infections. Chiropractic care is a great place to start, as it is the least invasive and often the most effective solution to these problems! Ask us if chiropractic care may be able to help your infant or child!
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle technique like light massage or trigger point therapy. The bones of the cranium articulate as sutures and retain small amounts of movement throughout life. If a cranial suture gets jammed, it can impede cerebrospinal fluid flow, hormone production and release, or put pressure on the cranial nerves that exit from holes between the cranial bones. Cranial dysfunction can result in a myriad of symptoms including migraines, stomach/digestive problems, infertility, miscarriage, extreme morning sickness in pregnancy, facial asymmetry, and eye muscle problems.
Every patient will receive stretches and/or exercises to do at home to support their chiropractic care, alleviate pain and discomfort more quickly and effectively, and prevent reinjury. Stretches and exercises are tailored to each patient’s individual needs.
Kinesio tape was invented by a Japanese chiropractor to help support and strengthen the body’s natural healing properties. It is not medicated or magnetic but works based on its design and the way the fibers in the tape run. It is used by Olympic and professional athletes around the world. It has many benefits including:
-Reducing pain by causing the body to release endorphins and enkephalins (the body’s natural pain relievers)
-Helping to hold the adjustment by gently supporting the area
-Reducing swelling by improving lymphatic flow
-Reducing muscle spasm by reducing muscle fatigue and over contraction
