Chiropractic manipulation is used to release restricted joints in both the spine and the extremities. Joints often become restricted due to poor posture, improper bio-mechanics, and/or injury. A joint that is restricted leads to excessive motion in nearby joints. This excessive motion leads to degeneration of the joint. Therefore, restoring movement and function in all joints is a preventative procedure for future degeneration and dysfunction as well as golf injuries.
For those patients that prefer a lighter manipulation, we also provide mobilization to the joints to help restore movement and function. This is a low-velocity manual technique that does not provide the audible release (cracking/popping sound).
Dr. Burr uses manipulation and mobilizations as taught by the Motion Palpation Institute, a bio-mechanically sound and evidence-based chiropractic manipulation technique.
