Chiropractic Adjustments

We provide many different types of adjustments, depending on what you need. We keep on top of the latest evidence based research and tailor your care to fit your needs. Some of the approaches we use include:

Manual

This technique is delivered by hand. A thorough examination reveals the malposition of one or more spinal bones. Then, a specific manual thrust is administered.

The direction, speed, depth and angle that we use is the result of experience, practice and a thorough understanding of spinal mechanics. Sometimes, the energy delivered during the thrust produces a slight “popping” sound from shifting gas and fluids in the joint. This sound is not an indicator of the value and effectiveness of the adjustment.

Instrument Assisted

Sometimes we use a small, hand-held instrument. While you’re lying face down, we’ll evaluate the length of your legs. This, and other simple tests help us determine exactly where to adjust your spine.

The adjusting instrument we use is a spring-loaded device that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust. Because it’s many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand, the body rarely tightens to resist, making adjustments comfortable. No wonder it’s one of the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world.

Drop-Table

This technique utilizes specialized drop-piece mechanisms in the table to assist the adjustment. What patients often notice first is our segmental “drop” table.

Individual cushions or “drop pieces” located along the table support each area of the spine until the thrust is given. Then, each drop-piece gently gives way, reducing the pressure needed to move a specific spinal segment. There is usually no “pop” experienced with this technique. Because of its precision and patient satisfaction, this approach to spinal adjustments is used around the world.

Spinal problems rarely get better on their own. Call our Amarillo chiropractic office today to get started with chiropractic care!
