What Are Some Chiropractic Mobilization Techniques?

Chiropractic mobilization techniques involve gentle movements and adjustments aimed at improving joint function, reducing stiffness, and enhancing overall mobility. Chiropractors use a variety of methods tailored to the patient's specific needs and conditions. Here are some common chiropractic mobilization techniques:

  1. Spinal Adjustments: Chiropractors use their hands to apply controlled force to a specific joint in the spine. This helps realign the vertebrae, alleviate pressure on nerves, and improve overall spinal function.
  2. Joint Mobilization: This involves gently moving a joint through its natural range of motion. Chiropractors use slow and controlled movements to increase flexibility, reduce stiffness, and enhance joint function.
  3. Therapeutic Exercises: We may prescribe corrective exercises to be done after each session. These exercises are designed to help strengthen and stretch your joints so that they can heal faster and are less likely to be injured again in the future. We may also provide you with lifestyle advice to help maintain your progress and remove impediments to healing.
  4. SoftWave TRT: High-frequency sound waves are used to stimulate healing and reduce inflammation in the affected joint and surrounding tissues.
  5. Instrument-Assisted Adjustments: Chiropractors may use handheld instruments to deliver precise and controlled force to specific joints, providing a gentle alternative to manual adjustments.
