Dr. Kim makes very specific spinal adjustments based on the x-ray findings. Dr. Kim adjusts the spine based on the x-ray findings, which is what causes the pain and joint fixation. When the vertebrae are not properly aligned, they can cause pain, inflammation, joint fixation (joint immobility), joint stiffness, and arthritis / joint degeneration. Uncorrected misaligned or crooked spines can cause other joints to compensate in a domino effect, causing bigger problems and chronic degenerative conditions over time. That is why Dr. Kim employs x-ray findings when performing spinal adjustments on his patients in order to precisely correct vertebral misalignment and restore normal spine integrity.
How Does Spinal Manipulation Work?
There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Some practitioners may use force and twisting, while other techniques are more gentle. Regardless of how they are performed, these techniques are intended to restore or enhance joint function with the objectives of reducing pain and resolving joint inflammation.
When vertebrae shift out of place, there is an overall systemic response from the muscular system to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow, our nerves, our immune system, and our minds cannot function at their highest peak.
Overall, spinal adjustments and manipulations are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level without any discomfort. When the body is adequately aligned, it becomes able to respond and perform as it was built to do.
