Also known as a chiropractic adjustment, it serves to promote proper joint function and movement. This is done by manually applying a controlled force to specific joints, most commonly of the spine, that are hypomobile, or not moving properly. Mobility is restored, consequently relieving pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal. There are many different adjusting techniques used by chiropractors, and it is our responsibility as your doctor to identify what might work best for you. And if we feel that another office might have a better technique or service for you, we will refer you there. The techniques utilized at Be Well include Diversified, Activator, Thompson Drop, Webster, and Flexion/Distraction.

Chiropractic for Runners/Athletes
Chiropractic care can be used to address common athletic injuries as well as help in keeping athletes at the top of their performance. Often in different sports such as soccer, golf, tennis, among others, we use our bodies in an asymmetric way. Over time improper biomechanics may lead to restricted joints or overuse which can lead to injury. At Be Well Chiropractic + Health, various adjusting techniques, physiotherapy, and muscle re-education are used to improve joint mobility, increase range of motion, and improve biomechanics.
