What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is a purposeful manipulation of a joint that corrects movement restrictions. Because it restores the proper range of motion, it allows for the joint and its surrounding tissue to function at its full capacity without interference.
Why Are 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 this 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 in the spine, and the signal between the brain and body are compromised, our bodies find a way to compensate. This compensation comes with the cost of another system 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!
Let us, The Mobile Chiropractor of DFW do the traveling for you, while you do life.
What is Soft Tissue?
Soft tissue connects or supports other tissue in the body with the biggest components being 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.
As chiropractors we believe in the bodies innate ability to heal itself from the inside. As humans, not only do we experience the world through our senses, but also our diet. When we eat, food is broken down into different building blocks for our innate intelligence to use as it sees appropriate. These building blocks are used to create new or replace old/damaged tissue. Through our diet, the body also gets a sense of the environment we live in. The interaction between the digested and undigested food, the gut, the immune system and the rest of the body is a very intricate network.
A thorough evaluation of the diet can identify what is causing imbalances in these networks and possibly be causing your symptoms. This may be the root cause of why your health is not where you want it to be. At times, supplementation can be recommended to nudge the body in certain directions depending on how fast and effective you want to reach your goals.
Massage therapy is an integral part of a wellness plan. Making sure that all musculature and fascia are able to work as they should is important for the body to function at 100%. When a massage is performed by licensed massage therapy, the outcomes are a lot more than just relaxation. A licensed massage therapist can break up those knots that are holding you back, improve lymphatic drainage, and much more. It is important for your chiropractor and massage therapist to have open communication so you receive a synergistic effect from both treatments. A massage therapy session with our Licensed Massage Therapist is always targeted with your goals in mind.
During the Initial Visit, we conduct a thorough history of your complaint, to have a better understanding of what is holding you back. Then, with your symptoms in mind, we will perform a comprehensive exam to identify the root cause of your symptoms. Once this is complete, we can determine the treatment that is appropriate for you, explain how we can help and the first treatment will follow. ~45 min
Follow Up Visit
During a follow-up visit, we always ask for feedback from our patients about the previous treatment, any changes in their symptoms/condition so that we can adjust the treatment appropriately. The treatment consists of the chiropractic adjustment, soft tissue therapy and/or therapeutic exercises. Our goal is always to provide you with the most precise and effective treatment. ~15 min
Our Licensed Massage Therapist will perform a 1 hour massage session that targets your complaints. This provides relaxation, lymphatic drainage, and could be a great compliment to your chiropractic care. As always, this takes place at a location and time that fits your schedule
As THE Mobile Chiropractor of DFW, we come to you. All visits take place at a location of your choosing. If the location is other than your home address, please specify when booking.
