Chiropractic Care at Ribley Chiropractic
Chiropractic care has a long and distinguished track of record of success in helping people of all ages enjoy better health and a higher quality of life. But if you've never experienced chiropractic adjustment yourself, the whole process might seem a bit mysterious or even intimidating to you -- but don't let that keep you from enjoying its many benefits. Let's take a look at chiropractic care and how our practitioners put it to good use here at Ribley Chiropractic.
How Chiropractic Adjustment Helps the Body
Chiropractic care is one of the many healing modalities based on the skilled use of physical manipulation -- in fact, the very word comes from the Latin phrase "done by hand." Today we have access to a variety of sophisticated instrument-based chiropractic techniques, but the basic manual method (known as Diversified Technique) is still both highly popular and highly effective.
Chiropractic adjustments involve the application of high-velocity, low-amplitude force to a finely-targeted area of the musculoskeletal system that suffers from subluxation. Subluxation is a state of slight (but significant) dislocation within a joint. When joint components aren't quite in line, the overall alignment of body can suffer. This in turn can cause a cascade of problems, from muscle pain to loss of mobility. Nerve function can also be impaired -- an especially serious issue that can potentially affect every system in the body. Chiropractic adjustments relieve these unnatural pressures on muscles, joints and nerves, relieving discomfort and allowing your body to operate as it should. Chiropractic care can address such diverse conditions as:
- Back and neck pain
- Chronic musculoskeletal strain
- Headaches and migraines
- Shoulder problems
- Acute injuries
- Systemic issues ranging from hypertension to insomnia
Experiencing Chiropractic Care
We provide a range of chiropractic treatment options here at Ribley Chiropractic. In addition to spinal adjustments that correct longstanding alignment problems or acute injuries, we can provide specialized services such as pediatric chiropractic care (a safe, drug-free way to help children achieve optimal growth and development), prenatal chiropractic care to help lessen the discomfort or pregnancy, and extremity chiropractic care that focus on joints of the arms, legs, hands and feet.
We will perform a detailed evaluation of your musculoskeletal alignment, symptoms, medical history, and other critical factors before your first adjustment. Don't be alarmed if you hear a "pop" at some point; this is only gas escaping from the corrected joint (a harmless phenomenon called cavitation).
