About Spinal Care Techniques

Spinal Care Techniques

What are spinal care techniques? Your body requires clear communication with the brain, free from any interference. This communication happens through your body’s nerve system, making it in charge of every other operation in the body. That’s all that spinal care is about. It helps to connect the brain with your body, so you can live your life on an optimal level.

What can spinal care treat?

  • Ankle sprain, Cramps, Muscles spasms
  • Elbow pain, Tennis elbow as effect of other spine conditions
  • Cervicogenic headaches, Migraines and it’s prevention
  • Minor sport injuries
  • Joint pains, Joint pains including hip and knee pain from osteoarthritis
  • General, acute and chronic back pain
  • Generalised aches and pains
  • Sciatica
  • Lumbago
  • Mechanical neck pain
  • Shoulder complaints, Soft tissues shoulder disorders, Rotator cuff injuries
  • Tension and inability to relax
  • Postural imbalance and retain correct poor posture

Promoting Brain-body Communication

As a spinal health specialist, (Spine Health Specialist in Derby our focus is in restoring brain and body levels of communication so your body can function at its optimum. The benefits of spinal care that you’ll experience are practically endless! Our clinic’s members tell us that they wake up after sleeping better feeling more energetic, are happier, and more productive. Increased immunity is another common benefit, and when you do get sick, you’ll be able to recover more quickly.

Getting Better and Staying Well

There are 3 phases of care at Chiro Family Practice (Spine specialist in Derby).

  • Restoration Phase – The focus is on restoring balance to the spine and body in order to start reducing restrcitions and eventually pain levels while improving mobility
  • Rehab Phase – The focus is to challnege mobility either through specific eercises or other forms of testing
  • Wellness Phase – The focus is to maintain your spine and body wfuncitoning at their optimum based on your lifestyle (why woudl you not want somethign in your life that makes you feel good and funciton better? Why wait for pain adn restrctions?)

It’s similar to if you wanted to lose weight, you’d work out often and with high intensity at the beginning. Once you reach your goal weight, you’ll maintain your progress instead of stopping workouts and gaining back the weight. You’ll continue on that healthy path, sustaining your results or even continuing to improve.



Our Spinal Care Techniques

Integrator (Precise instrument adjusting)

The Integrator has true force adjustment as well as a choice of three tip sizes, shapes, and density characteristics to allow our spinal specialists the greatest outcome in correcting almost any miss alignment safely that can present itself.

Key advantages of using the Integrator:

. PRECISE: When using an Integrator the specialist can pinpoint the exact point on the spine that requires adjusting. Traditional Manual adjusting in some cases lacks this degree of accuracy.

. SPECIFIC: The force, frequency of energy, torque, speed, and thrust provided by the Integrator have all been tailor-made to deliver the perfect amount of energy required for your joints.

. GENTLE: An Integrator adjustment can be delivered with the spine in a perfectly relaxed neutral position with the perfect amount of force: Whereas a traditional adjustment requires the spine to be stretched to a position of tension followed by the manual thrust by hand to sufficiently open the spinal joints to activate a cavitation response.

Other Spinal and Body manipulation techniques

This particular set of spinal adjusting techniques seems to be key to the success of the adjustments, however, is the speed with which they are delivered. The specialism is a type of swift thrust known as the “toggle torque recoil” technique. To perform the toggle torque recoil, the practitioner uses one hand as a “hammer” and the other as a “nail”. In effect, the hammer pushes and torques the nail in the desired direction with one extremely swift, painless movement, with almost instantaneous recoil. This effectively frees the joint and eases the tension in the surrounding muscles.

Regular Visits – Your Care Plan

After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length. In a word: no.

With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up your spine and nervous system, adjust you and get you on your way. Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and we can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes. We recognise your time is valuable. We do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.


FAQ Spinal Care

During my experience of work as a Spine Health Specialist, I’ve heard our customers asking many similar questions… Here I’ve compiled a top 10 list of the most frequently asked ones!

What are the side effects?

There are very few risks or side effects associated with spinal care. In fact, most people feel some immediate improvement after their first treatment. If your specialist foresees any potential for an adverse reaction, then the treatment will be modified. Alternatively, you will be considered inappropriate for this particular type of care and referred to as either your GP or a relevant specialist.

Occasionally some people experience a little soreness after their initial treatment, some temporary light-headedness can occur and rarely a headache can be evoked. All of these symptoms generally pass very quickly.

Will the treatment hurt?

In the main no! Occasionally with very acute presentations, the process can cause some mild discomfort momentarily.

By the way, if this approach makes as much sense to you as it does to us, we’d like an opportunity to meet you and discuss your options in person.

Can We Help You?

Please spend time reviewing our videos testimonials and reviews to make sure this is the right clinic for you. Our focus is on precise, pain-free, and SAFE instrument adjusting! Why is this important? Because traditional tests (except for X-rays and MRIs) cannot detect the condition of your spine and joints!

Is it safe to be adjusted while pregnant?

Absolutely! In fact, our instrument-focused sinal care is very beneficial during pregnancy. Not only does it allow for the mother to feel her best throughout the entire process by balancing the nervous system, relieving stress, improving pelvic alignment, and decreasing any tightness in the pelvic muscles/ligaments it can prepare a mother for her best labor yet!
