Chiropractic Adjustments and Functional Treatments in Gretna, NE

What is Chiropractic Care?

When someone thinks of a Chiropractor, typically the first thing that comes to mind is the adjustment. At Spine & Muscle Therapy of Gretna we use adjustments (manipulation) in conjunction with many other functional treatments. Most patients are not aware of the logistics involved in determining when and where to adjust; all they know is that they often feel better afterwards. So how do chiropractors know when and where to adjust?

Chiropractors are musculoskeletal experts trained in finding and correcting joint, muscle, and other movement-related dysfunctions. Before adjusting, a Chiropractor must first determine if a joint is not moving properly (restricted) or moving too much (unstable). If we find that a joint is biomechanically “stuck” in its functional range of motion, we manipulate (or adjust) it accordingly. If the joints we are assessing are unstable, we then focus on strengthening the area with stabilization exercises.
