Chiropractic services aren’t just for people with general back pain. Those with headaches and migraines, scoliosis, sciatica, personal injuries or ones due to a sports or an auto-accident, pregnancy pain, or even those with sinusitis, allergies, and ear infections can benefit from a visit to their Springfield chiropractor, Dr. Timothy Wenneborg. A chiropractic examination is very similar to standard examination procedures administered by all health care providers, and a diversified spinal and extremity adjustments is one of the most widely used forms of adjustment in chiropractic care.
At Springfield Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Wenneborg will examine the structure and function of the spine and determine specific chiropractic treatments. If a diversified spinal and extremity adjustment is recommended, your Springfield chiropractor will make a manual adjustment to correct misaligned or subluxated spinal segments of the neck or back. No instruments are needed in the adjusting procedure. This hands-on technique helps create motion in spinal joints with the goal of restoring structure and function. Adjustments will also be made to the joints not contained in the spine, such as the jaw, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, finger, hip, knee, ankle, and foot. These are referred to as extremity adjustments. Like the spine, these extremities develop joint dysfunction that can result in reduced motion, abnormal muscle tone, inflammation, scar tissue, and/or arthritic changes. Following a diversified spin and extremity adjustment, once motion has been restored to the joints, there is often reduced pain, relaxed muscles, reduced nerve interference, and a promotion of healing.
The treatment generally results in the popping sound as the chiropractor makes a manual adjustment to correct misaligned or subluxated spinal segments of the neck or back. This is most likely what you think of when you imagine a visit to your Springfield chiropractor.
