What does a Chiropractic session involve at Align Chiropractic, Norwich?
We use a variety of methods depending on the individuals unique requirements. These may include manual therapy such as Chiropractic adjustments (Joint manipulation), which may be light or more forceful, non "clicky" or "clicky", depending on the desired effect. The Chiropractor may also use soft tissue techniques, massage machines as well as medical acupuncture (or dry needling). They often will provide exercises and/or general nutrional and lifestyle advice or suggestions on how to manage yourself or your complaint, if applicable, outside of our office.
Chiropractic adjustments are gentle, but specific movement of a joint which are made by hand. The technique used depends on what is appropriate for the individual; it can vary from a quick controlled movement to a sustained light pressure. A 'click' or 'pop' sound can sometimes be heard, this is the fluid in the joint releasing pressure into the joint space. This releasing of the joint is painless in most cases, please watch the video below for more information.
Soft tissue techniques:
This includes various massage techniques including trigger point therapy and muscle relaxation and stretching techniques such as post isometric relaxation techniques (PIR).
Dry needling / medical acupuncture:
At Align Chiropractic we use this specifically for helping ease neuro-musculo-skeletal problems (we do NOT help people stop smoking or achieve weight loss and other non musculo-skeletal goals).
