Diversified chiropractic adjustments
Diversified chiropractic adjustments are done by applying force in a specific direction to the body, and the result is a change in the position and motion of spinal bones or other joints of the body. Force is applied with hands.
You may hear a popping noise, resulting from gas and lubricating fluids in the spinal joints shifting.
Usually you will receive treatment on a special chiropractic table designed of several parts that can be moved to assist the chiropractor in performing the adjustment.

Kinesio Taping gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It is also used for preventive maintenance, edema, and to treat pain.
Kinesio Taping is a technique based on the body's own natural healing process. This Kinesio Taping exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically stems from the science of Kinesiology, hence the name "Kinesio".
Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms.
The Kinesio Taping method is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused tired muscles, and to support muscles in movement on a 24hr/day basis. It is non-restrictive type of taping which allows for full range of motion.
Kinesio Taping is used for anything from headaches to foot problems and everything in between.
