Neck Adjustment: No Twist, Pop, Crackadmin
We are well aware that many people don’t like to have their necks twisted and cracked. In my opinion this type of chiropractic is not harmful and can be effective, however it is understandable that someone wouldn’t want their neck adjustment to be so jarring.
The main treatment here is called Active Release Techniques or ART. ART is used in most american professional sports such as the NFL, NHL, MLB, NBA, PGA Golf, Soccer, and the list goes on and on.
The treatment is slow and controlled with no sudden bursts of movement. Most of the emphasis in ART is on breaking up dense scar tissue which forms after injury or over-use. This scar tissue is usually formed around muscles, tendons, and ligaments and not in the actual joint itself. If the joint itself is stuck because of scar tissue we can work through that with ART as well.
