Chiropractic Adjustments at Newport Health Care
The term “adjustment” refers to the specific manipulation chiropractors apply to vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. The objective of the chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation, which results in an increased range of motion, reduced nerve irritability and improved muscle and joint function.
Dr. Tomlin also utilizes an adjusting instrument in certain cases she feels would benefit more from a non-force approach. This instrument delivers a very fast and gentle thrust to the joint which is painless and effective in overcoming muscle spasm.
