Chiropractic adjustments to your spine reduce pain and muscle spasm 1-4. With this use of CBP, Spriggs Chiropractic utilises both diversified spinal adjustments and Mirror Image® adjustments, which are used for reducing pain, reducing muscle spasm and improving your posture.
When your care commences, the first stage of the plan will involve chiropractic adjustments to your spine to help increase the movement of the joint and reduce any muscle spasm. This starts your healing process off in the right direction by restoring your pain free movement and giving you your life back. Once your body is ready and your symptoms have subsided, then we start your body’s rehabilitation. Within the clinic at Spriggs Chiropractic, we are capable of providing functional and structural rehabilitation to your spine and nervous system with a range of different facilities.
Chiropractic adjustments have also been found to increase stimulation to the central nervous system, joint position sense, reduce the risk of falls in the elderly, increase lower limb muscle strength and increase reflex excitability 5-12. All of which are crucial for athletes and sport men and women to perform at their absolute best.
In some situations, Chiropractic adjustments can be performed using instruments such as an activator or an Arthrostim™. These instruments are used to help mobilise the spine and the small joints of the body. These tools are also utilised at times when other adjustment techniques are not appropriate, for example when adjusting children, the elderly or when spinal manipulative therapy is contra-indicated. Your safety and health are our top priorities; therefore any decisions on the treatment types recommended will be discussed with you prior to any procedures being performed. The most appropriate treatment techniques for you and your needs are made based upon your examination and x-ray findings as well as your own health goals.
