In many regards, a chiropractic examination is very similar to standard examination procedures administered by all health care providers. With that said, how chiropractors examine the structure and function of the spine and then determine specific chiropractic treatments separates chiropractic care from other disciplines.
DIVERSIFIED SPINAL AND EXTREMITY ADJUSTMENTS
Diversified spinal and extremity adjustments is one of the most widely used forms of adjustment in chiropractic care. This hands-on technique helps create motion in spinal joints with the goal of restoring structure and function. Extremity adjustments are adjustments to joints that are not contained in the spine. These would include jaw, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, finger, hip, knee, ankle and foot. Like the spine, these extremities develop joint dysfunction which describes a joint that has reduced motion, abnormal muscle tone, inflammation, scar tissue or arthritic changes. Once restoration of motion has been returned to the extremity, there is often reduced pain, improved motion, relaxed muscles, reduced nerve interference and promotion of healing.
