At Precision Care Chiropractic, we provide personal, safe and effective chiropractic care for patients of all ages; children, adults and the elderly. Dr. Bampoe is trained to effectively treat you with manipulative techniques ranging from manual adjustment (by hand) to instrument adjusting instrument (activator) depending on the need of the patient.
Adjustment or Manipulation: Is a minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident. When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can't function at our peak. An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like you're cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.
Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is in alignment, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to.
In addition to the adjustment, Dr. Bampoe may recommend one of the following to speed up the healing process:
Physiotherapy Modalities: Electrical Muscle stimulation, Ultrasound and Intersegmental traction are commonly used to help those experiencing back, neck, arthritis and other musculoskeletal problems.
