Our Chiropractors correct subluxations with spinal adjustments. Spinal adjustments are gentle procedures used to realign the bones in your back and free your body from nerve interference. At Erin Mills Optimum Health our Chiropractors utilize a variety of techniques. Along with the traditional hands-on Technique we also offer the Activator Method Technique.
Manual Adjustments in Mississauga
A traditional hands-on Chiropractic Technique which utilizes a Chiropractor’s hands and body to adjust your back, spine, and nerve system. Our Chiropractors in Mississauga are highly trained at manual adjustments. These manual adjustments can be made at different segments of the spine to specifically adjust the back bones that are involved. The side posture position is regularly used to adjust the low back, pelvis, and sacroiliac joints. The thoracic spine is regularly adjusted while lying both back down and back up depending on the clinical presentation and vertebral subluxation. The neck can also be manually adjusted in a face down and/or a face up position. The amount of force required to adjust the spine is actually quite minimal, as what is required is proper positioning of the spinal vertebrae by the chiropractor. Because of this, this method of adjusting the spine can be done on people of all ages and sizes.
Activator Methods Technique in Mississauga
Most new patients to our Chiropractic clinic assume that all adjusting, or Chiropractic maneuvers, are done with the hands and requires a lot of strength – this is not so. Continuously developed from the 1960’s, Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique utilizes a handheld instrument designed to have extremely-low-force and extremely-high-velocity in order to specifically adjust the back, spine, and nerve system. This means that it can be very gentle while still being effective! This is a highly researched and utilized chiropractic technique. “Activator,” as it is frequently called, combines a leg length analysis with specific adjusting using the activator instrument, which adds to the clinical evaluation and adjustment of the patients’ spine, biomechanics, and neurology. This testing is done when you are lying prone (back facing upwards). The Activator technique is designed to be used for people of all different ages and sizes – from newborns and the elderly to football players.
Natural Health and Chiropractic
For your body to work at its fullest, bring in your spine for a Chiropractic spinal check up. It’s a great thing for everyone to do – young and old.
“The beauty about Chiropractic is the fact that it works with natural means. It puts nothing new into the body, nor does it take away any natural gland or organ. Chiropractic simply releases life forces within the body, sets free rivulets of energy over nerves, and lets nature do her work in a normal matter.” B.J. Palmer – Developer of Chiropractic
