The Amazing Chiropractic Adjustment

The centerpiece of your chiropractic care is the amazing chiropractic adjustment. At first glance, adjustments appear quite similar visit to visit. But there’s more to this routine procedure than meets the eye. There’s a lot going on as we track the many subtle changes your body is making.

Here are some of the nuances associated with your chiropractic adjustments.

Intention

Intention makes chiropractic adjustments different from general spinal manipulations. Our intent is not to treat your pain. That’s the practice of medicine. Instead, chiropractic adjustments help restore joint function and reduce nervous system interference. As function improves, your body has no need to express symptoms.

Technique

We choose from a variety of adjusting techniques to optimize clinical results and patient comfort. Your adjustments are unlike those received by others in our practice. We tailor your care to your size, age, unique spinal pattern and the progress we detect on each visit.

Precision

Before each thrust, tap or touch to your spine, we form a mental picture of your particular spinal issue. We compare that with our understanding of the optimal spinal structure and function. This gives us the data we need to determine how much energy to use. Plus, the exact direction in which it should be applied. This combination of art and science makes every adjustment just a little different.

Specificity

Sometimes the primary subluxation is in the upper spine, but your symptom is showing up in the lower spine. This secondary subluxation is merely a compensation reaction. The low back pain is simply a symptom of a symptom. Our experience with countless patients makes sure your adjustments produce the greatest benefit.

Timing

The timing of your adjustments is not left to chance. Each of us has countless patterns that control our sleep, hunger and the release of hormones and neuropeptides. We consciously time your adjustments based on your respiration cycle and muscle tone.

Frequency

Your care plan is designed to produce the best results in the shortest amount of time. Visits that are too far apart often fail to produce the momentum necessary for healing. When visits are too close together we may find that your body is still processing the previous adjustment. Our goal is to discover the sweet spot based on the feedback from your body.

Outcome

The all-natural result for which chiropractic is famous doesn’t follow a straight line. During the first week or two of care there are three possible outcomes. Some show relatively quick improvement. Those who have suffered recent trauma may find a temporary worsening before improving. Others report steady improvement as each visit builds on the ones before. Everyone responds differently.

We chiropractors think the adjustment is pretty special. Besides sharing the principles of chiropractic, the adjustment is the most important thing we do.

  • I have been suffering with neck and back pain and lack of mobility since my early teens and I am now 27, but I have progressively had a harder time coping with it since I started working in Healthcare in 2019. It had gotten to the point where all I could think about was finding a different job throughout my shift because I wasn't sure how much longer I could handle it. I decided to give Chiropractic Medicine a try and I am so thankful I did! I have been going to Ancaster Family Chiropractic since July 2021 and I have experienced a significant improvement with reduced severity and frequency of pain, better range of motion in my neck and back, and I rarely have to take OTC pain medication which is something I was relying on daily beforehand. I am not even halfway through my treatment plan and I can't wait to continue experiencing improvement in my quality of life. Thank you, Dr. Neil, Sue and Deb!

  • Dr. Neil and the staff Deb and Sue were very helpful with dealing with my issues. I went in with a lower back pain and has been healing pretty well. I have noticed the adjustments and home exercise not only helped with the pain but also helped with my digestion issues such as bloating. They were very accommodating whenever I needed a change in visits.Overall a great place to get yourself healed.

  • Their philosophy of health and well being is encouraging, optimistic and realistic. I appreciate the idea of leading a healthy lifestyle and preventing illness rather than simply treating the symptoms of ailments. Also, there are times unexpected benefits to chiropractic care. I wholeheartedly recommend Ancaster Family Chiropractic.
