Chiropractors

The chiropractic profession offers countless techniques, philosophies and patient care models.  Among all the variability, the one uniting element is the chiropractic adjustment, a specific force applied to a joint that is malpositioned or restricted (“stuck”) in order to restore proper positioning or movement.  

 

Misaligned or restricted joints are problematic because they do not allow full motion to take place.  Without full motion, correlating joints and soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, nerves) suffer by being under or overused.  This results in tissue breakdown, which leads to tendonitis, muscle strains and nerve entrapment.  

 

The body will attempt to stabilize the area of a misaligned or restricted joint by sending messages to the surrounding muscles to “lock down” or spasm.  Now two pain patterns are affecting the body; one from the misaligned joint and the other from the surrounding spasm.  Joints with a poor movement pattern place increased burden on surrounding joints by having them make up for the motions lost.  Such a reaction causes undue wear and tear on healthy neighboring joints and tissues, essentially expanding the area of dysfunction beyond the initial problem.    

 

Unlike most tissues of the body, joints do not have a direct blood supply.  Joints rely on motion to create an osmotic effect that helps to pull in nutrients from the surrounding tissue and to get rid of waste products that all cells produce.  Without full range of motion, a joint will build up waste products and will not receive adequate nutrients, all which lead to faster degeneration and arthritis.  

 

A chiropractic physician can determine which joints are misaligned and restricted by using their hands to feel and induce motion.  Then with a precise contact and direction of force, an adjustment is performed, restoring motion to the effected joint.
