Northwest Indiana Chiropractors

There are alternatives to help control your joint pain without taking medication or having surgery. Have you thought about Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy? Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy is what chiropractors refer to as an “adjustment.” Your chiropractor will use a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust with a gentle but firm movement to restore function and motion in an inflamed and painful joint. The adjustment stimulates the nervous system to help reduce pain and relax local musculature. Some patients will hear a popping noise during an adjustment, the same sound you hear if you crack your knuckles. The popping sound is the release of nitrogen gas from a joint capsule.

Does Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy Really Work?

Yes, it does! Many reputable studies have proven that motion is restored to a restricted joint following Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy. Rest assured that no bones are moved for this to happen. Other scientific studies have proven a chiropractic adjustment is safe and effective. Most patients who receive chiropractic adjustments report extreme satisfaction with the outcome as well.  As a result of these findings, Chiropractic adjustments have been considered one of the gold-standard techniques for the treatment of low back pain since the mid-1990s. More and more research continues to be performed on the effectiveness of Chiropractic adjustments for many conditions, such as joint pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, IBS, and fibromyalgia. At Motus Integrative Health, many patients with various ailments, such as carpal tunnel and migraines, have greatly benefited from Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy.

What is Motion Palpation?

How do chiropractors determine what techniques to use to treat a patient? First, chiropractors use motion palpation as a diagnostic technique to locate joint dysfunction within the spinal column and extremities. Your chiropractor will manually test the different motions of a joint to determine if there are restrictions in any of the ranges of motion. It is true that pain is typically caused by either too much or too little movement in any range of motion within a joint.  By manually assessing various joint ranges of motion, the staff at Motus Integrative Health can get a precise idea of how your body is moving and where it might need to move better. If it is determined that a joint is not moving correctly using motion palpation, we may perform any number of procedures, including an adjustment or mobilization, or both.
