Chiropractic care is based on the belief that your body has a natural ability to heal itself and that given the proper ‘push’, your nerves, bones, joints and muscles can balance your body’s structure and function. The aim is to restore or enhance joint function, resolve joint inflammation and reduce pain.
Chiropractic care has been used to successfully treat various health problems that originate from spinal joint and nervous system. Injuries, wear and tear in muscles and bones due to stress and continuous strain can cause temporary dislocation or improper functioning of your vertebrae. This may lead to strain on the connecting nervous system causing pain throughout your body. Our expert chiropractic care helps to rectify the spinal joint dysfunction, aiding your body to heal itself.
The Activator Technique is a gentle, low-force type of chiropractic care used in diagnosis and treatment of back pain, neck pain, and headaches. It is a safe and proven non surgical method of relieving pain by delivering a gentle impulse force to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted spinal vertebra or joint.
The technique involves use of a hand-held device called an Activator that locates and treats spinal joint dysfunction by delivering a controlled, low-force, light and quick thrust to vertebrae without causing the patient any excessive strain. The instrument is designed to create a quick localized thrust so that the body’s muscles are less likely to tense in response and resist the treatment.
We use specialized procedures like leg length inequality analysis and neurological reflex testing to detect spinal joint dysfunction and other related problems. These help us in identifying the exact origin and cause of problem and restoring your spinal balance by countering the problem accordingly.
