Chiropractic Adjustment

The chiropractic adjustment involves a thrust applied to a hypomobile/fixated vertebral segment or joint. The adjustment creates gapping of the joint to restore normal optimal range of motion.
Synovial joints are lined with synovial fluid to provide lubrication. The "clicking"/ "popping"/ "cracking" sound heard is due to the formation and collapse of gas bubbles within the synovial fluid as the joint surfaces are gapped.

Muscle Activation

Muscle Activation activates inhibited muscles to create stability around a joint so that it can move to its full potential. This creates feelings of freedom and ease of movement with added strength and control.
The practice of these techniques utilises a system of checks and balances to find areas of instability which can cause compensation when recovering from injury, in day to day movement and sporting performance. In essence it is a missing link in traditional forms of therapy and exercise training methods.
