Chiropractic theory states that proper alignment of the musculoskeletal system allows the nervous system to function properly, leading to optimum health. No matter the age of the patient, Chiropractic adjustments are used specifically for each person both to address symptoms and for preventive care.
Spinal subluxations (misalignments) and other misalignments of the bony structure are gently and skillfully adjusted, by the use of the hands or instruments, to encourage them to once again seek their own place in the body and restore function.
Chiropractic sees the body as a whole and trusts the body’s own innate intelligence to take these gentle hints from a highly trained physician and to heal itself. After an adjustment, the patient generally feels more relaxed and aligned. Often patients will express that they feel lighter, taller & like they see more clearly after gentle and specific manipulations of their body.
At Be Optimal, we use many gentle adjusting techniques such as: Activator, SOT and the use of SOT blocks as well as soft tissue work like Neuro-Muscular Therapy.
Neuro-Muscular Therapy is soft-tissue manipulation that balances the body’s central nervous system with the musculoskeletal system. This therapy is used to locate and release spasms and hyper-contractions in the tissue, eliminate trigger points that cause referred pain, rebuild the strength of injured tissues, assist venous and lymphatic flow, and restore postural alignment, proper biomechanics, and flexibility to the tissues.
