Why is this adjustment so different?
At ProHealth Chiropractic we offer a unique, breakthrough approach to patient care called Koren Specific Technique (KST). There is no twisting, turning, "cracking", or "popping" of joints with KST; instead, you receive gentle, specific corrections to your spine and structural system. Most adjustments or corrections are performed with you standing, sitting, or in the specific motion that causes pain.
We are correcting a serious form of nerve stress & tension caused by distortions in your spine and body structure. These stress and tension patterns are known as a subluxations. Subluxations can cause physical and mental/emotional malfunction. They are often associated with loss of energy, pain, weakness and disease of all types. Subluxations may be caused by physical, chemical or emotional stress or trauma. Our purpose is to remove the stresses from your body and/or mind so that you may become physically and mentally healthier.
KST permits us to quickly and easily check and correct (or adjust) your body for subluxations. This includes your cranial bones, TMJ, entire spinal column, sacrum, coccyx, discs, hips, sternum, ribs, femur heads (upper thigh bones), shoulders, knees, feet, hands, and anything else that needs correcting.
KST is very gentle and yet very powerful. Patients usually notice dramatic changes from the first visit. Once your muscle memory has been established, your body will likely hold its corrections for a much longer time with KST. So you can go longer periods between adjustments.
Correcting with KST involves very specific adjustments using an FDA approved activation device that introduces energy/force/information to the body to realign and remove nerve pressure. This "specific adjustment" involves no twisting, turning or "cracking" of joints and permits adjustment in different positions. A major advantage of KST is that it permits you to be analyzed and adjusted in different postures; standing, sitting, laying down and/or in the position of injury, pain, or dysfunction/subluxation. The specificity is very important, because sometimes a problem can only be reproduced in a certain position, such as the "sitting position" as in a car accident, and may not be revealed when standing. Therefore, the patient must be analyzed and adjusted in a sitting position.
What can I expect after my first adjustment?
Each person is different but certain general responses have been noted. Many people report a feeling of ease, relaxation and well-being as their structural nerve stress (subluxations) releases/diminishes. Often people report a "lighter feeling", the ability to breathe more deeply and sometimes an emotional release. Some people may feel as if they've had a good workout, often in places they were never aware of before. In addition, people often experience retracing as deep, unhealthy stresses leave their bodies. This is an essential aspect of the journey toward health and wellness for it involves expressing and releasing unhealthy physical and emotional stresses.
Your body has many layers. At each session we correct what your body is revealing to us at that time. Older injuries, older distortions, older subluxations and older symptoms (both physical and emotional) may surface at later sessions. The release of old injuries is part of the healing process. Not everyone experiences retracing on a physical or conscious level. Sometimes dreams increase or unusual dreams occur as a result of KST care.
