Much of the work of a chiropractor is based on making adjustments to the body of a patient. In many cases these adjustments can be performed by hand, or by helping the patient into different positions. However, the use of instrument adjusting Baton Rouge patients find to be effective is also an important part of the services Sonnier Chiropractic provide.
We’re happy to discuss your needs to find out if instrument adjusting is the right choice for you.
What is Instrument Adjusting Baton Rouge?
Technically, instrument adjusting is any adjustment made to a patient’s body with the use of a piece of equipment or instrument.
Chiropractic instruments vary in size and shape depending on what area of the body is to be treated – for example, a back adjustment instrument may be entirely different to a foot adjusting instrument, and rightly so. The biomechanics of the body vary from location to location, so what might work in one area will not work in another.
Some instruments aid in making large motions and adjustments, while others are designed to make multiple small and slow adjustments. The net result is the same, with the choice being made based on the individual requirements of the patient and the type of treatment needed.
What can Instrument Adjusting Baton Rouge do?
Any adjustments made by a chiropractor are deliberately planned to treat the condition the patient is suffering from. This can be back pain, headaches, neck pain, sciatica, arthritis, sports or motor vehicle accidents, and so on.
The adjustment is designed to relive pain and restore the normal function of the body, which may include spinal realignment, joint manipulation, relaxation of muscles, etc.
When the component parts of the body are in their optimal positions, pain is naturally minimized and strength, flexibility, mobility, and confidence return.
Is Instrument Adjusting for Everyone?
Not every patient will require adjustments, and therefore instrument adjusting is not always required. Even if adjustments are needed, they may be applied manually.
Other treatments including diathermy and ultrasound therapy may be more appropriate. Our team are happy to discuss your needs and find out what the best treatment will be for your individual situation.
