Beyond Massage: Chiropractic Adjustment

Beyond Massage: Chiropractic Adjustment

You may be aware of the numerous massage therapy services we provide at Therapeutic Kneads. However, if you are looking to try something new, we offer some alternatives to massage therapy as well. One of those alternatives is chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustment has many benefits for patients suffering with spinal pain or for anyone looking to restore motion to the spine. Dr. Mark Severance, of Therapeutic Kneads, specializes in a unique form of chiropractic adjustment that could be perfect for you.

When you think of a chiropractor you may immediately imagine someone manually shifting your body into positions in order to “crack” and “pop” your spinal joints. This can be intimidating. While many chiropractic specialists do practice the traditional, manual form of spinal manipulation, Dr. Severance utilizes a low force adjusting technique. He uses the Chiropractic Adjusting Tool (CAT), which is a small, hand-held instrument that delivers a gentle, percussive force to any joint in the body with the goal of restoring motion. It is an excellent alternative to the traditional spinal manipulation and is safe for all ages, from newborns to senior citizens.

Most chiropractic adjustments are made to the vertebra of the spine to not only restore motion, but to relieve pressure on the nerve roots. Your nervous system controls, coordinates, and regulates ALL functions of your body. Stress on the nerves can cause stress in your organs and stress in your organs can cause dysfunction. Dysfunction = disease. Diseases could very well be originating from stress in the nerves.
