Diversified chiropractic manipulation is only one of many techniques our chiropractor uses for treating the underlying causes of pain and dysfunction. In diversified chiropractic manipulation, your chiropractor places hands over a stiff or painful joint to deliver quick, gentle pressure. It is one of the methods of treatment our doctors use at Westmoreland Chiropractic in Greensburg and Export, PA.
A More In-Depth Description of Diversified Chiropractic Manipulation
Every chiropractor learns diversified chiropractic manipulation during professional chiropractic education. It's one of the five or six techniques chiropractors use most often to treat the root causes of back pain, neck pain, and whiplash.
In diversified chiropractic manipulation, your chiropractor makes a low-amplitude thrust. That means that the pressure your chiropractor places over joint is intended for that joint and that joint only. Diversified chiropractic manipulation treats one joint at a time.
Diversified chiropractic manipulation is a high-velocity technique. Your chiropractor uses very quick movements, so don’t be alarmed. The goal of diversified chiropractic manipulation is to restore motion to a rigid joint. Restoration of motion to a stiff joint is often associated with a popping sound.
The Diversified Technique Is Safe
Chiropractors study affected joint by taking x-rays, observing how you and how you move, and go through your complete medical history. Chiropractors have years of experience dealing with joint problems, consult with other doctors as necessary, and carefully consider any treatment before they offer it. Those are the reasons you can be confident there won't be any untoward side effects.
What Can Chiropractors Achieve with Diversified Chiropractic Technique?
It's often said that chiropractors put joints back in place, but that isn't really what chiropractors do. Chiropractors restore flexibility to joints in the spine and in other locations in the body, to relieve neck pain back pain, arm and leg pain, and headaches, and to support recovery even from some metabolic diseases.
