Manual adjusting is a type of treatment that involves mobilising the joints using gentle specific movements. This is done in order to restore biomechanical function and help the joints move more freely.
No, manual adjusting is not painful. In fact, many patients find it to be quite relaxing.
Some patients may hear a small popping sound when their joints are being adjusted. This is perfectly normal and is nothing to be concerned about.
This varies from patient to patient depending on their individual case needs. Our chiropractors will develop a treatment plan that is specifically tailored to your condition
In most cases, manual adjusting is covered by insurance. However, we recommend that you check with your specific insurance provider to be sure.
There are many benefits to getting manual adjustments, including improved joint function, reduced pain, and increased range of motion.
Manual adjusting is generally safe and effective. However, as with any type of medical treatment, there are always some risks involved. These risks will be discussed with you prior to starting treatment.
The best way to determine if manual adjusting is right for you is to schedule a consultation with one of our chiropractors. During your consultation, we will discuss your specific needs and health goals. We will also perform a physical examination and full medical history to ensure that manual adjusting is safe and appropriate for you.
During your first manual adjusting session, our chiropractor will take a detailed medical history and ask about your symptoms and health goals. A physical examination will also be performed. Once it has been determined that manual adjusting is right for you, the actual treatment will begin.
A typical manual adjusting session takes about15- 30 minutes. However, the length of your session will depend on your individual needs.
There is no special preparation required for manual adjusting. However, we recommend that you wear loose, comfortable clothing so that our chiropractor can easily access the areas that need to be treated. If you are coming from work or don’t have appropriate clothing we have patient gowns that are available to use.
This will be determined on individual patient basis. In some cases, follow-up appointments may be necessary in order to assess your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment.
This also varies from patient to patient and will be determined on an individual basis. In most cases, manual adjusting is a short-term treatment option. However, some patients may require ongoing treatment.
In some cases, other treatments such as massage therapy or physiotherapy may be recommended in addition to manual adjusting. This will be determined on an individual basis. Our clinicians may also do trigger point therapy, dry needling, soft tissue release in conjunction with manual therapy.
