The adjustment is the focus of a chiropractic treatment.
When you lie face down for the adjustment, the spine remains in a perfectly relaxed neutral position with the perfect amount of force being released by the Integrator instrument. The adjustment delivered through the Integrator is often described as a ‘tap’ or quick mechanical impulse into a muscle connected to the spine.
Patients at Momentum Chiropractic receive a specific adjustment without the twisting, cracking, and popping sound of traditional hand adjustments.
This technique does not manually stretch or realign your body. It is a technique that stimulates your nervous system in such a way that it will release and reduce tension, allowing your body to self-correct.
Some people have varied physiological responses with each adjustment. Some people feel something with each adjustment, while others do not feel much at all at the time of the adjustment. All responses are just perfect. What is consistent with people is that eventually, many begin to feel better.
TRT requires that your body responds in a fairly organized and coordinated way in order for the therapeutic response to be significant. Some will respond to these techniques straight away, while others will take a few lessons before the body catches on. For example, some infants begin walking at 9 months while others walk well after their first birthday. Neither is better than the other it’s just how it goes!
You may feel achy after a TRT adjustment because different muscles, nerves and other soft-tissue structures have been stimulated. Because they are newly stimulated, your body is adjusting to the improvements made. The soreness is much like going to the gym. Working new muscles can leave you a little sore the next day. The soreness can surprise people because the technique is gentle. Know that it is temporary.
