Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic treatment covers a wide variety of services to help patients who suffer from any form of pain or have been injured.

Chiropractic care includes more than spinal adjustments.  It focuses on the threatmetn and recovery of a wide variety of musculoskeletal injuries & concerns. 

At Empowered MVMT, we are trained in many different treatment techniques to address a wide variety of injuries.  This includes; chiropractic adjustments/manipulations, soft tissue (muscle) work, and personalized rehabilitation plans.  We are specialists in the conservative management of all injuries.  

Our office provides a natural alternative to recovery that is centered around movement, exercise, and hands-on therapy instead of surgery or medication. 

The Chiropractic Adjustment or Manipulation
The chiropractic adjustment refers to a technique which is designed to put movement in a joint that is fixated. The doctor uses this to help restore normal function and motion in a joint.

This technique employs gentle pressure or a shallow thrust to restore optimal motion. An adjustment is sometimes accompanied by a pop noise, which results from the joint’s release of nitrogen gas.

While common to be included in a treatment plan, it is not necessary for all conditions.  Your individualized treatment plan will determine if chiropractic adjustment/manipulation is recommended.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the popping sound? 

Similar to when you pop your knuckles, when you get adjusted, you may hear a sound.  This is the result of small gas bubbles being formed/released which makes a sound.  If there’s no noise, does that mean the adjustment didn’t work? NO! While the sound is satisfying to hear, it is not essential for motion to be restored into a restricted joint. 

Do I have to keep coming back? 

No.  Our goal at Empowered MVMT is to empower you to take control of your health.  Our treatment plans are designed to help patients throughout the recovery process with the goal of decreasing injury in the future.  Depending upon your individual concerns, this process may include: decreasing pain, increasing strength and mobility, and in many cases, training for a return to your sport.  You may choose to come in for regular maintenance care if desired. 

I’m having pain in a specific area but you treated another area, why?

As much as we like to think that different parts of our bodies aren’t affected by others, that is not the case.  For example, knee pain may be caused by a knee injury due to the ankle or hip not functioning properly, or by a low back concern that is referring to the knee. 

I don’t want to have a specific part of my body adjusted.  Does this mean you can’t help me?

You are in charge of your body.  If you don’t want to be adjusted, there are a variety of other treatment options including: soft tissue treatment, rehabilitation exercises, and lifestyle modifications.
