Chiropractic Manipulation

Chiropractic is a lot more than a chiropractor popping your back, as you’ll discover at Leading Edge Chiropractic in Reno, NV. Dr. Bryan Hansen knows that one of the main causes of back pain and neck pain stems from joint fixations: that’s when the capsule around a spinal joint becomes tight and tender restricting the normal movement of the segment.

This leads to localized muscle spasms, local and radiating pain.  Joint fixations are treated with a combination of techniques, including applied pressure, soft tissue therapies, and manual manipulation of the vertebrae and joints (called adjustments). Dr. Hansen is trained in a variety of adjustment techniques. Some are done by hand; some require the use of specialized instruments and can be applied to any injured joint of the body from spine to ankle joint.
