Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.
Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is in alignment, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to.
There are different adjustment techniques.
In this picture, Dr. Luban is using the Pro-Adjuster. The patient is resting very comfortably while Dr. Luban uses the equipment to first analyze the spine to find the subluxations, and then to treat the spine with a light tapping motion. The patients love having the ability to "see" the subluxation on the computer and then to watch it get better
The Pro-Adjuster is the most advanced, computerized instrument adjusting equipment available to the profession. Utilizing the technology of the Pro-Adjustor, Dr. Luban instantly analyzes your spine for the exact location of the subluxation, and then adjusts you with a light tapping motion along your spine, all while you are sitting comfortably in a chair. There is no "twisting", "bending", "popping" or "cracking".
After the adjustment, the patient usually feels a great sense of relief, with less muscle spasm, less pain and greater range of motion.
