Chiropractors perform specific adjustments, such as spinal manipulation, in an effort to relieve pain and improve joint function. But have you ever wondered exactly what your chiropractor is doing during a treatment session?
Here our Stoke on Trent chiropractor sheds light on two common chiropractic techniques that can help to get your spine back in working order…
1: Gonstead technique
This technique typically involves adjusting the low back or pelvis as you lie on your side. Your chiropractor may use this in an effort to realign your joints, reduce stiffness and pain and help mobility.
2: Activator technique
Your chiropractor will usually perform this technique using a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers small impulses to your spine. This widely used technique is considered effective for many conditions, including low back pain and migraines.
