As a Sports Chiropractic Physician - our goal is to find out why you would need to be adjusted. Most Chiropractors look for subluxations and how the nervous system is adversely affected due to interference to the nerve affecting the system. At ActiveSpine, we figure out why the subluxation is present and attack this dysfunction vs the adjust the spine and hopefully will resolve the imbalances present that are not allowing for normal biomechanics to occur. Once that is established and addressed, at least at that point there would be a reasonable chance that an adjustment will actually hold. This is where patients fall into the trap of numerous adjustments provided by their Chiropractor per week. The proper environment is not present to provide a reasonable chance to succeed.
We regularly tell people that if you have muscular imbalances from right to left, front to back, lateral or medial, due to the muscles attachments, this will directly or indirectly affect how the joint moves. If we just adjust the joint, the muscles will typically pull the joint back out of place again by the time they reach their car in the parking lot.
We want to create an environment that if adjustment is necessary, the joint can live in a habitat that would allow it to succeed.
