What Your Chiropractor Can Do for You

If you have never visited a chiropractic clinic before, you may be wondering just how a chiropractor can help you. The main aim of all chiropractic treatment options is to realign the spine, in order to stop your musculoskeletal system from interfering with your nervous system. When your spine is out of alignment, certain nerves can be compressed or impacted in other ways that cause referred pain in various different parts of your body. Your chiropractor in Thornhill may use one of the techniques described below, a combination of two or more, or an entirely different set of techniques, to correct any alignment issues that are identified during your initial assessment.

  • Activator Technique – A gentle impulse is delivered to part of your spine by an instrument known as an activator. The force of the impulse is strong enough to move the vertebrae but not so strong that it will cause any further damage to the area in question.
  • Decompression Manipulation – This is a popular technique for dealing with disc herniations, scoliosis, and various other conditions. It is performed on a specially-designed table, which allows the chiropractor to manipulate your spine in such a way as to reduce intradiscal pressure.
  • Thompson Technique – The use of a segmental drop table enables your chiropractor in Thornhill to apply adjustive force to segments of your spine in a more effective manner. The different segments of the table are designed to drop a fraction of an inch as force is applied, thereby helping areas of the spine to realign.
