      ADJUSTING

      Chiropractic adjusting is low amplitude and high velocity, which is applied to move a specific joint past the physiological range of motion, without exceeding the anatomical limit.

       

      Adjusting is utilised to influence joint and neurophysiological function. Depending on what you need, manual adjusting, drop piece adjusting, or activator instrument adjusting are utilised.

      DRY NEEDLING

      Dry needling is a western approach to acupuncture. The main difference is that acupuncture (Chinese medicine) involves inserting acupuncture needles into meridian points in the body to help treat various conditions.

       

      Dry needling (western medicine) consists of inserting acupuncture needles into trigger points to help treat various injuries. A trigger point is a tender spot in a tight band of muscle which causes pain when pressed or squeezed.
