At Crow Wing Chiropractic, we pride ourselves on being able to treat individuals with a a wide variety of conditions. This means implementing various tools and methods to do so effectively. We cater to our patients when it comes to adjusting style. Dr. Moore excels in several methods in order to suit your needs best. Through many years of training and experience, Dr. Moore has hand picked the methods of adjusting he feels are the most beneficial to you.
This is the most common type of adjustment given, where Dr. Moore adjusts the patient using his hands, contacting very specific points with just the right amount of force to deliver a comfortable, effective adjustment.
Drop Piece Adjustments:
Using our state-of-the-art Ergostyle adjusting tables , Dr. Moore sets the intensity of the adjustment to a suitable level. This method uses speed to our advantage to deliver an adjustment.
This method is specifically for those with low back disc problems. This is accomplished by performing decompression of the lumbar spine which reduces pressure on the spinal nerves (alleviating pain) and restoring motion to those spinal segments in need of correction. Unlike the drop piece adjustment, this method involves smooth, gradual movement of the lumbar spine for those with very acute, intense symptoms.
Instrument Assisted Adjustments:
Using an Activator to adjust, Dr. Moore is able to cater to those who prefer to not be adjusted with a traditional "hands on" adjustment. This is the fastest method we have available, as the adjustment is delivered in 3-5 milliseconds. The thrust delivered by this instrument is so quick that it accelerates ahead of the body's tendency to tighten up and resist the thrust of an adjustment. Because of the precision and light force of this adjustment, it is suitable for anyone from newborns to seniors.
