The most significant aspect of any chiropractic treatment techniques in Palm City is chiropractic manipulation of the spine or joints of the extremities. Commonly referred to as an "adjustment", chiropractic manipulation is performed to improve lost range of motion, increase segmental joint mobility, stimulate joint position sensors, and promote normal function of the central nervous system.
Chiropractic treatment techniques in Palm City fit into 3 basic models based on the three body systems primarily addressed by chiropractors. Chiropractic intimately involves itself with the skeletal system, the muscle system, and the nervous system. Therefore, while all chiropractic treatment techniques in Palm City involve all three systems, the techniques themselves can be differentiated from one another based on their method of assessment and their method of correction.
Segmental or skeletal system centered chiropractic treatment techniques in Palm City, adjust vertebrae that are not in their optimum position back to a more normal position and, in so doing, affect the nervous system first and then the muscle system next. Postural or muscle system centered chiropractic treatment techniques in Palm City, first involve putting tension or relaxation within the muscle system to allow an easier structural adjustment to take place. In so doing, this approach involves the muscle system first which then affects the skeletal system and then, finally, the nervous system. Tonal or nervous system centered chiropractic treatment techniques in Palm City are not muscle or bone based but rather focus on the nervous system and the related changes in a person’s physiology.
As such, tonal chiropractic treatment techniques in Palm City look at the nervous system first and the doctor’s input into the nervous system then affects the muscle system which, in turn, affects the skeletal system. Since all three technique models work and produce good results, why would we prefer a tonal approach? The answer comes in understanding how the interference to a person’s nervous system takes place to begin with.
