Adjustments are the specific minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this adjustment is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from the stresses of normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.
When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can't function at our peak.
At Dunn Chiropractic we specialize in using the Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique and Dr. Dunn holds an Advanced Proficiency Rating from Activator Methods. The Activator Methods uses a highly researched system of analysis that helps us determine exactly how to adjust, where to adjust, when to adjust and perhaps most importantly, when not to adjust.
An adjustment with the Activator instrument uses a very quick, precise and measured force to retore proper movement to the vertebrae and move them back into place. This speed and precision allows the adjustment to be usually done without discomfort. There is no twisting, cracking or popping!!
Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is in alignment, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to.
