The most common treatment used by chiropractors is called a spinal manipulation or a chiropractic adjustment. This is what some refer to as “having their back cracked” or “getting their neck popped”. In reality, a spinal manipulation uses a controlled force to a joint to restore joint mobility. Joints can become “stuck” or have reduced mobility for a number of reasons, and a chiropractic adjustment is a drug-free way to help improve joint function and allow the surrounding tissues to heal.
Dr. Rob uses a combination of hands-on adjusting techniques as well as special instruments and tables to treat each patient depending on their individual condition or injury. In addition to spinal manipulations, there are therapies that can help with pain relief and speed the healing of soft tissue injuries. In our office, Dr. Rob uses electrical muscle stimulation, heat and ice therapy, cervical and lumbar traction, and trigger point therapy to aid in the recovery process.
