What is Chiropractic

Meadows Chiropractic
Dallas Chiropractor

Chiropractic is the movement of joints, performed by a Chiropractor.  This movement is called an adjustment. While the focus can usually be the spine, most joints in the body can be adjusted. This includes shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, fingers, hips, knees, ankles, feet, toes, TMJ, cranial bones (bones of the skull, mainly the sinus), ribs where  they meet the spine and where they meet the sternum, clavicles, pubic bones, and ears.   


Our doctors adjust with their hands (Diversified technique), with a drop table (Thompson technique), or with a small instrument ​called an Activator.  They adjust joints that are not moving (in a fixed position). Joints that are in a fixed position can cause nerve irritation, pain, muscle spasms and inflammation. Pain can be local (pain at the affected area) or radiating (moving or shooting away from the affected area).


Our Doctors can adjust at any patient age (newborn to elderly).
