An adjustment is our main tool in caring for our patients. The Doctor of Chiropractic typically uses his hands or an adjusting instrument to manipulate the joints of the spine, in order to increase functional movement in the joint. This restoration of function movement in the joint removes nerve interference and helps with a host of symptoms.

 

The chiropractic adjustment is a specific motion applied to a joint to restore proper range of motion and posture to the body. Chiropractic adjustment is a therapy that can be applied by hand (manual adjustment), using an instrument most commonly called an activator, or with drops and triangular blocks.

Chiropractic manipulation is a controlled procedure adapted to meet the specific needs of each patient. Patients often have positive changes in their symptoms immediately following a chiropractic adjustment. Most conditions take more than one treatment.  This isn't always the case, but you can rest assured that we will do everything we can to get you feeling better in a timely manner.

 

The popping noise often heard when performing a manual chiropractic adjustment is called a cavitation.   This is simply the release of gas trapped in the joint space rushing out when the joint is moved.

I simply lucked out when I found Dr. Monroe The staff at Monroe Chiropractic Wellness Center are amazing and very well informed. I was in so much pain when I first visited Dr. Monroe, and after 2 visits my pain decreased by 50%! After a few more visits I felt 20 years younger! Thank You! Thank You!

I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. I decided to go to Dr. Monroe before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pain is 95% gone and my life has changed because of Dr. Monroe. Thank you so much!

From the time I walked in the door I was impressed! I was seen promptly, and Dr. Monroe was a true professional. When I was younger I was in a car accident and have been suffering with neck and back pain. Almost to the point that I couldn't get out of bed! After 6 treatments I started to see relief, and today it's like the accident never happened. I've been seeing Dr. Monroe for about 2 years now and I am so excited about the future!
