Manual Extremity Adjustment: a Powerful Technique of Chiropractic

By Rhen Sambal Subscribe to RSS | December 19th 2011 | Views:

Manual extremity adjustment is one of the sophisticated techniques that belong to chiropractic. Spinal manipulation is commonly associated with chiropractic but there are other techniques, which are worth knowing. Chiropractic is concern with disorders of the nervous and musculoskeletal system. It is 100% natural approach and abstain from using any medication or surgery in addressing different health problems. Chiropractic believes that the body has the capability of self-healing and restoring body function.

It is worth noting that diseases or disorders have their own manifestations depending on what was affected. But all these, in one way or another, have relationship with the nervous system. Scientifically speaking, the nervous system controls all the physiologic functions of the body. It regulates and sends signals to every process that occurs every moment of our existence. Bearing this in mind, the spine has been the primary focus of chiropractic. Along with other techniques, spinal manipulation accomplishes fast recovery for many clients.

In case that a client complaint concerns any of the extremities, manual extremity adjustment is also performed. This may vary depending on the extent of injury. The first step that a chiropractor will do is to conduct physical assessment and take the history of present illness. From there, management and treatment plan is usually suggested to the client before implementation. Once a diagnosis has been established, the chiropractor can now start sessions. The extremities are indirectly attached to the spine. Having been said this; spinal manipulation is done to get to the root cause of the injury. This may also involve massage and long strokes along the spine. Manual extremity adjustment is carried out in conjunction to spinal manipulation. Exercise of the involved extremity through active and passive motion is implemented.

The extremities might be at some point begun to tense and contract. Due to constant pressure and use of a certain extremity, it gets injured and could not function at the optimum level. Thankfully, a chiropractor is well trained and knowledgeable to apply healing methods to relax the muscles and bring comfort for the client.

If you are suffering from any pain or discomfort of the extremities, this might be caused by spinal misalignment or subluxation. You might have spent enough time wondering what went wrong with your body. This is a perfect time for you to visit a chiropractor and experience spinal manipulation or manual extremity adjustment. Then you will see how wonderful chiropractic could be.
