Chiropractors believe that most of the back pains experienced by people are are caused by subluxations. A sub-luxation differs from a luxation in that it refers to the partially dislocated joint. This dislocation affects the spinal nerves, and using a high velocity thrust restores normal functioning of the joints. This method is also known as adjustment or manipulation. It restores the normal mobility of the spine, and alleviates back pain and stiffness.
New chiropractic technology is being developed every day as chiropractors are working hard to help people stay in optimal health and avoid needless surgery.
This Jefferson Ga Chiropractors office uses an activator which is the traditional tool that has been proven to be effective in chiropractic services by doctors all over the United States.
The activator uses the same principles as discussed in the video above. It exerts a gentle force to move bones back to their original position.
If you have ever experienced head aches or neck aches then you deserve to come and see how effective this treatment is.

Can headaches be caused by exercise?
The answer is most definitely yes.
Now before you begin to cancel your membership at the gym, allow me to explain.
A few weeks ago a new client came in complaining of headaches, neck pain and discomfort. There was no question there was a problem going on, since his muscles in the neck and shoulders were extremely tight and neck vertebrae were out of alignment.
Typically Jefferson GA chiropractors would normally make the adjustment and put things back into place. But the question that always gets me is ... Why?
Why is the neck out of joint? Why are the muscles so tight? I began a journey of digging and exploring for possible reasons. The patient told me that he was exercising every day to keep his adjustment in place.
I asked him to demonstrate the exercises one by one. It was soon very obvious what the problem was. He was doing crunches incorrectly and was using his neck muscles instead of the abdoman muscles to do his exercises. On top of this he was doing them very quickly with a jerking motion of the neck.
We then took the time to show him the correct way to do crunches. As you would expect by his next treatment there was a big improvement!
That's just one of the things that makes our Jefferson GA chiropractic services different. We will take the time to talk with you about your lifestyle. We will ask questions to isolate potential problems and then we will seek to correct them, not simply by an adjustment with an activator, but by modifying the behavior that originally caused it.
Adjustments last longer and the patient does not have to come in as often.
Talk to your chiropractor take a moment to show him your exercise routine and he will help you make any necessary adjustments in the way you are doing them.

If your biggest concern about going to a Jefferson chiropractor is having your bones "cracked", then sit back and allow me to tell you about the activator and how it will easily and gently move your bones back into place without any "cracking".
What Is An Activator?
The activator technique is a chiropractic technique for moving bones back into their correct alignment without resorting to the traditional manual adjustments that chiropractors are known for.
How does it work?
It uses a hand held spring activated device that delivers a soft impulse to the spine that gently moves your bones back into place. The result is a safe adjustment to the vertebrae that doesn't cause any injury. It can be used on the elderly as well as for children.
How Does This Benefit You?
We have talked about the law of compensation and the role of posture in the amount of pain you have to deal with each day. The activator is a wonderful tool that allows Dr. Torey to give you the adjustments you need for maintaining optimal health. Best of all:
1- You don't have to worry about having your bones "cracked" anymore.
2- It doesn't hurt at all
3- You can be adjusted while fully clothed
4- It is quick and pain free
People want change in their life but they aren't willing to change their life. It's funny, how you try to explain to people the connection between posture and pain for example.
There is the old classic joke.
A man comes in to a doctor and says, "Doc, it hurts when I do this".
The Dr. replies, "So, don't do that!"
This is not very complicated my friends. When we have year after year of poor posture, sitting habits, incorrect ergonomics, no exercises etc... it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that there will be consequences.
Take for example the law of compensation we spoke about earlier. When we refuse to address a problem in one area, it will rear its ugly head in another.
That is the funny thing about us here in the USA. We want things fixed quickly and easily but we don't want to do anything about it personally sometimes. We want to take a pill or have a chiropractor adjust us one time and then never have to worry about it again.
Unfortunately, ultimately each and everyone of us holds the key to the quality of our life. It is not in the "quick fix" but in the little things we do every day. The choices of the food we eat. The habit of regular stretching and daily exercise and regular chiropractic maintenance.
That is one of the things that separates us here from other chiropractors. We not only will look at what hurts, we will exam why it hurts and talk about how your life style choices could be affecting the quality of your health.
In the next article I will give an example of this.
You go to your Jefferson Ga Chiropractor and tell him that your left hip is causing you pain. You have come to trust him, after all he has helped you through several aches and pains over the last few months. But then why is he working on the right hip?
The Law Of Compensation
What is the law of compensation when it comes to your body and feeling pain? Did you ever have of the expression "Give a little and take a little"?
That is exactly the same way your bodies skeletal system works.
When one side of the body begins to hurt, in order to protect itself, the body will compensate by working the opposite side twice as hard. This imbalance can cause all kinds of problems as you can imagine. This is why it is imperative you maintain your good health and posture with Jefferson Ga chiropractic visits.
Dr. Torey has tried to make these as affordable as possible for you. Why not call him now and ask about the special new client pricing packages he has put together.
Regular chiropractic maintenance is vital to keep your body aligned and in peak performance.
