There are more than 200 joints in your body! A joint is where two bones come together for the purpose of allowing movement. Stress on these joints can cause a loss of normal movement which impairs the function of these joints. When there is a loss of function, problems can start to arise. Chiropractors are trained to locate and correct these regions of fixation.A chiropractic adjustment is the use of controlled force in a precise direction applied to a joint which is not moving properly or “locked up” with the goal of restoring range of motion. For the patient, this means improved function, a return of muscles to normal tone, a reduction in nerve irritation and a reduction in pain.There are many different techniques used in chiropractic. At Peak Performance Chiropractic we aim to be as gentle as possible and tailor the adjustments to the patient.
