What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is a purposeful manipulation of a joint that corrects movement restrictions. This restores the proper range of motion, allows for the joint and its surrounding tissue to function at its full capacity without interference to the nervous system.
Why is Chiropractic Care and the Spine Important?
As we all know, our skeletons are what give our bodies their structures and the ability to stand up against gravity. The spine is right at the center of it all. It connects the head, arms, and legs to the torso. It does that while also protecting our delicate and always changing nervous system.
The spinal cord that passes through the spine, connects the brain with every cell in the body. As the spinal cord descends, a pair of spinal nerves exit the spine between two vertebrae at each level. These nerves connect to all tissue and relay information between the brain and the body, like pain, temperature, body position, and much more. When movement restrictions are present in the spine, imbalances between the different tissue can occur. The proper signal is not transmitted through the nerves and a state of dis-ease begins to exist.
How Does The Chiropractic Adjustment Work?
When a restriction is present in a joint, especially the spine, the signal between the brain and body are compromised. Our bodies though, find a way to compensate for these restrictions. This compensation comes with the cost of another restriction and the cycle carries on.
At PEAKiropractic, we can identify these restrictions and correct them with the use of chiropractic adjustments. This helps remove the restrictions and restore the appropriate range of motion in the joint, whilst removing the interference within the body and allowing the proper function to continue.
Are Chiropractic Adjustments Safe?
When performed by a licensed chiropractor after the appropriate workup, the chiropractic adjustment is safe. This is why at PEAKiropractic we take time to listen to our patients, have a good understanding of what is causing their symptoms, and then perform a thorough physical, orthopedic and neurological examination in order to rule out other things that may or may not have been noticed by the patient.
It is recommended that everyone is under regular chiropractic care to function at their PEAK!

What is Soft Tissue?
Soft tissue connects or supports other tissue in the body. The most popular are muscles, ligaments, and fascia. These power our everyday movements and it’s important for them to work as a system. When this doesn’t happen, muscles get strained, ligaments and tendons get inflamed and fascia tightens up in an attempt to compensate for the imbalance in the system. All these, result in poor quality movement, additional stress to the system, and more compensations. Imbalances in soft tissue can be a result of restrictions in a joint, incorrect movement patterns, and incorrect loading of the body.
How is Soft Tissue Work Performed?
Depending on the cause of the imbalance in the system and the compensation that is presented, soft tissue therapy can help relieve pain, improve quality of movement, and restore balance to the system. The way this is done depends on the tissue involved. Some of the techniques we use are instrument assisted and some are performed manually.
Does Everyone Need Soft Tissue Therapy?
No! Each person has a different body with different stressors and so different compensation. The same imbalance may cause different compensations in a different person. It is important to have a thorough evaluation of your case to identify what is necessary for you.
