Knowing Where To Adjust
Have you ever noticed that your particular spinal complaint is in one area of your spine, but I adjust a different part of your spine? How come?
We see the spine as an integrated whole.
Since your spine is designed to help you deal with gravity, a problem in one area is often offset by a problem in another. We call these compensation reactions.
For example, someone complaining of low back pain can often have an even more profound problem in their upper neck. But it hasn’t produced symptoms. Yet.
Their head misalignment is producing the problem in their lower spine. As we adjust their neck (where there are no symptoms) it can better support the weight of the body and the low back pain resolves!
So, while chiropractic adjustments are specific and targeted, our focus is on the integrity of your entire spine, not just the area exhibiting symptoms.
