Biomechanically, spinal dysfunction begins as an injury or stress that causes local muscular hypertonicity, segmental dysfunction and misalignment. This early stage of pathophysiology is ideally aborted with spinal manipulation. The intention of the chiropractic adjustment is to remove any disruptions that may be caused by slight vertebral misalignments that we call subluxations. Later stages involving altered proprioception, muscle weakness and reduced joint mobility are also improved with joint manipulation, exercises and target soft tissue treatment. Dr. Melanie Gregorian is well trained in each of these clinical approaches and specializes in finding the cause of the dysfunction through state of the art ART techniques and Kinesio taping methods to allow the body to function at full capacity.We can help you get back to your active lifestyle.
