Superficially, most people know the answer to this question: “They manipulate your spine”. But in reality, chiropractors offer much more. At Roc Motion Chiropractic we perform whole body movement evaluations. By watching a person perform a squat, lunge, single leg balance test and several others it can be gathered what joints in your body have limited range of motion and what joints are being improperly stabilized. These observations are then confirmed with muscle and joint palpations.
Once a proper functional diagnosis has been made the joints that are restricted in their range of motion are mobilized using either manipulation or myofascial release and the areas of hypermobility are appropriately stabilized using various rehab approaches. Once these areas of dysfunction have been addressed your movement patterns are then reassessed and you’ll find that you’re able to perform them much more easily and with significantly less pain. By using a global movement approach we can resolve the cause of your symptoms anywhere in your body; not just in the spine!
