Why You Should Go to a Chiropractor
Part of the chiropractic approach involves determining whether the body’s natural structure has caused problems with the functions in other areas of your body because of reactions in the nervous system. Structural changes can affect the nerves and the spinal cord by affecting the normal communication of information from the brain to the rest of the body.
The Importance of Spinal & Posture Screening
Back pain, neck pain and various other physical ailments often originate in the spine but in order to provide a comprehensive treatment plan to alleviate the symptoms, an exact cause must be determined. A spinal and posture screening serves as the initial step to formulating a specific solution to the health problem. It can reveal important information regarding a person’s overall health and provide a base for an effective course of action.
Extremity Adjusting in Murray, Utah: Extremity adjusting refers to when chiropractors adjust the joints of the body that are outside of the spinal joints. These joints include the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles and the feet. Similar to subluxations of the spine, extremities can also suffer from misalignment. These misalignments can cause pain and limit the range of motion.

Chiropractic Techniques at Hill Chiropractic
This is the most commonly used type of therapy and it involves a high velocity, low-amplitude thrust delivered by hand and possibly with assistance from a table or block. This usually results in a cavitation of a joint (quick, shallow thrusts that cause the popping noise often associated with a chiropractic manipulation/adjustment).
This type of adjustment technique utilizes a special table with a weighting mechanism that gives way shortly after the thrusting adjustment is rendered and provides for a gentler manipulation of the spine.
The activator method uses a small instrument to deliver a gentle impulse to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted vertebra or joint. This method is gentler than the manual adjusting technique and is an alternative technique for patients who are seeking less impact on their muscles when being adjusted.
The focus of the Gonstead adjustment is to provide precise and accurate adjustments to specific problem areas. Bio-mechanically correct position and a precise adjustment is emphasized to provide the most painless adjustment possible.
