When you are a patient in our office, your comfort level is of utmost importance. Adjustments are more effective if you understand how they work and have a good expectation of what will happen. There are many different types of adjustments, ranging from a hand held instrument that gently taps your joints to the traditional being put into a certain position, feeling a gentle release and hearing a "cracking" sound. Before we do any sort of adjustment or treatment, we will perform a thorough exam to diagnose your condition. This exam will include questions about your past medical history and checking your range of motion, posture, alignment and muscle tension.
Carter Chiropractic and Wellness regularly works with seasonal patients. We are happy to continue the excellent care your home state chiropractor has provided you. The types of adjusting techniques used in our office are Activator, Diversified, Flexion Distraction and Thompson Techniques. Additionally, we use therapies such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation and intersegmental traction.
