About Chiropractic Adjustments

A chiropractor provides non-invasive treatments with the benefits of spinal adjustments and realigning the joints to improve the system and function throughout the body.

In general, chiropractors believe in the ability of the body to self-heal through Chiropractic adjustment with the help of modalities such as the Flexion distraction table, E-stim, Denneroll, and functional exercises. They also utilize various other treatment modalities such as ultrasound, bodywork, etc. to get patients back to health. 

A Healing Hands chiropractor will adjust the joints using a high velocity and low amplitude force to restore any dysfunction (pain) and/ or restrictions that exist in joints of the spine and skeletal system. Although a Healing Hands chiropractor’s main focus is the spine, as it protects the central nervous system, Healing Hands also exercises a very strong background in nutritional assessment, ergonomics, exercise physiology and preventative care.

It is a very safe & accurate thermographic scanner that scans the full spine or segmental parts of the spine in approximately 15 seconds. The Tytron detects areas of asymmetry as well as indicate areas with greater temperature due to acute soft tissue damage.

The Tytron scanner uses precision sensors, speciality lenses and a unique focusing system to give the chiropractor the most accurate and repeatable information available. You will be given a print out of your result on the first visit.

A thorough examination of your complaints and conditions can alleviate any concerns that you may have.

Yes, neck adjustment is a very safe treatment. Chiropractors are trained in the correct techniques to manipulate the joints safely. Chiropractors also ensure that it is clinically safe enough for adjustment before they perform it. This is why an X-ray is required before more treatment can be done to ensure that your body is able to receive it.

Just like going to the gym once or eating healthy for 1 meal will not give you the body you desire, chiropractic will take some time & commitment to see results. You should set a goal in mind of what you want to achieve, be it pain relief, performance enhancement or postural correction. Communicate clearly with your chiropractor your goals and work with him or her to achieve them. A good chiropractor will spend time with you to customise a treatment plan and be ready to make changes when the need arises.



The frequency of your treatment depends on the severity of your condition(s).
Typically, our patient may come twice a week in the beginning and taper down to once a week and eventually once every 2 weeks.

X-rays

X-rays are recommended if you want to take care of your condition holistically and to get to the root of the issues. It is also for the patients safety and for us to rule out any possible underlying conditions that cannot be treated by Chiropractic adjustment. Just like your regular health check-up, X-rays serve to give you and the chiropractor an insight into your spinal health as our naked eyes can only tell a rough story.

X-rays are a naturally occurring form of electromagnetic radiation, they are produced when charged particles of sufficient energy hit a material. Unlike CT scans, the radiation emitted from X-rays is very low. The benefits of these tests far outweigh the minimal risks involved. Typically the amount of radiation emitted from cervical spine x-rays is about 0.2msv which is equivalent to taking a few flights a year.

We usually recommend patients take subsequent X-rays at least 3-6 months apart. Do inform your chiropractor if you had taken X-rays before and the last date of the most recent X-rays during your first visit. You are also advised to bring along those images for your chiropractor to assess if new ones are needed.

Conditions that Chiropractic can treat

There are two main techniques that Chiropractors use to treat herniated discs. The first one namely the Flexion-distraction technique. It typically involves the use of a specialized table which provides the patient with a gentle pumping action to decompress the spine. The effect created allows for the disc to be directed away from the nerve thus providing relief. 

The second technique is the pelvic blocking technique whereby cushioned wedges are used to place on the pelvic to draw discs away from the nerves. 

There is a strong correlation between the spine and the immunity level of a person. The nervous system is connected to the whole body by the spine. Any compression of the nerve pathways could interfere with the communication path and thus weakening the body’s self-defense mechanism against illness. Frequent Chiropractic adjustments help to optimize the spinal health leading to a boosted immunity. 

Chiropractors will be able to apply pressure and adjust specific areas of the body. These adjustments are intended to improve the impacted areas that are causing the bad posture. On top of adjusting, Chiropractors can also work on bones and attached muscles to correct imbalances that have been acquired over time. 

With both muscle releases and strengthening exercises prescribed along with the patient’s commitment to doing it at home, Chiropractors and patients will be able to achieve better results and habits. 

Although chiropractors do not necessarily aim to ‘straighten’ the abnormal curve of a scoliosis condition, they can still help in managing it so that it does not become an unnecessary burden in your life or manage it from getting worse. The goal is to allow you to live a life without restrictions and for you to live it to the fullest regardless if you have scoliosis. 

Chiropractic treatment is designed to help restore the alignment and functional movements of the spinal joints which can reduce the strain on both the spine and the rest of the body through better movement and function. Additionally,  it can help your body and spine to stabilize the progression of scoliosis so that it does not prematurely deteriorate, weaken and lead to more severe symptoms or other associated problems.

The body naturally goes into fight or flight mode when stress arises. As such, the muscles will tense up as a response to it. With Chiropractor, they are able to help you to loosen the muscles providing relief and allowing the body to be restored to its natural balance during day-to-day activities like walking or running. 

Spinal Adjustments by a chiropractor will restore the bodily functions of the spine. As the brain is connected to the rest of the body through the spine, Chiropractors are able to provide the body with natural healing by facilitating the optimal neurological communication between the brain and the key functions like breathing and swallowing allowing for more oxygen to the brain thus reducing the stress levels. 

A mother’s body often goes through drastic physical and biomechanical changes over the nine months of pregnancy. In addition, the labor and delivery (whether vaginally or via C-section) can cause changes in the mother’s pelvic alignment as well as that of the lower and mid-back region. Such misalignment in those structures can bring pain, aches and discomfort during various everyday activities such as walking, nursing, sleeping, and etc; both during and after pregnancy. Chiropractic care can help to restore these misalignments through specific and precise manual therapy, stretches, and specific exercises.

Chiropractic care during pregnancy is a safe and effective evidence-based alternative medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of common neuromusculoskeletal conditions that can greatly assist you throughout your pregnancy and labor.

A common reason for seeking chiropractic treatment during pregnancy is to correct the spinal alignment and pelvic balance to enable the body to function properly. In order to meet with the physical and mental demands of pregnancy, various physiological changes occur to a woman’s body in order to create a suitable environment for the baby to grow and develop. Chiropractors assist in these demands by helping the body to improve circulation through improving mobility, balanced and relaxed supporting muscles.

Chiropractic treatment for TMJD can help to bring relief from the pain by restoring the motion back to the TMJ and bring balance back to the muscles that are compensating around the joint. Chiropractic treatment will also restore motion back to the surrounding structures that may be contributing to the TMJD like the neck or cervical spine. Chiropractic can alleviate the joint dysfunction leading to pain and imbalance by bringing back the normal mechanics of the TMJ to allow for proper healing to start naturally.
