Chiropractic is a hands-on approach to healthcare that focuses on diagnosing and treating the cause of pain and dysfunction. Chiropractors focus on the nerves, muscles, and joints of your body. They help ensure all components are working together properly to keep you moving. When your nervous system becomes compromised, pain and other symptoms can appear, and chiropractic works to restore and maintain the nervous system in its optimal state.
At Harmony Chiropractic, patients have an active role in their care from the start of their very first visit. And by combining in-office treatment with at-home exercises and lifestyle advice, we will work together as a team to help get you on the way to living your best life.
The most common and “typical” technique used in chiropractic practice. Chiropractors use their hands to contact a restricted or misaligned joint, then apply a high velocity, low amplitude (HVLA) thrust to the joint. This restores motion to the joint, therefore improving its function. These are the adjustments which commonly result in a cavitation or “pop” of the joint being manipulated.
A more gentle approach to care. This technique uses a small handheld tool to apply a small vibratory thrust to a specific joint. It achieves the same results as a manual diversified adjustment, but with significantly less force. This technique is often used on infant and elderly patients, but is also used on patients of all ages. If you’re nervous about hearing those “popping” noises, this technique is for you!
