Sherwood Chiropractor

Chiropractic is a safe holistic alternative method of health care that focuses on the spine and all the other major joints in the body.

Chiropractic techniques are performed by the doctor using his hands to deliver a high velocity (high speed) low amplitude (low force/depth) thrust to the restricted misaligned joints in order to improve normal range of motion, improve neurophysiological function and to decrease pain.

If a patient is fearful of the popping noises (cavitations) or just nervous about manual adjusting, the arthrostim is great non-forceful alternative to adjusting and another instrument used to deliver the same therapeutic result as a manual chiropractic adjustment.

What is a Subluxation / Joint Restriction?

A Subluxation or joint restriction is defined as: An abnormal relationship between two adjacent articular structures (joints) that may have functional or pathologic sequelae, causing a change in the biomechanical and/or neurophysiological relationship between these articular structures.

This condition can become a major issue if not addressed early on. It may cause abnormal wearing of the joint surfaces which can cause pain, pre-mature degeneration of the spine or other joint surfaces, as well different inflammatory processes.

I am SO thankful for the services that Elite Spine and Sports provide! The chiropractors are very knowledgeable about body mechanics and injuries.

At Elite Spine and Sports, we believe that the injured tight and tender muscles must be treated first in order to reduce the friction, strain and tension these muscles have on the joints. That is why Active Release Techniques (ART) and/or Graston Technique are used in most chiropractic treatments.
