The Wobble Chair
At Dynamic, patients are “warmed up” prior to Chiropractic Adjustments by using the Wobble Chair in a series of specific movements.
Moving your spine on the wobble chair will increase the circulation of the fluid that surrounds your brain and spinal cord, the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). This fluid carries nutrients, neurotransmitters and hormones that your brain and nerves need to be healthy. When these are circulated and refreshed by movement you will have a better mood and longer attention span. You will also find that your memory, focus, and cognitive function improve.
Cervical traction is used at Dynamic during your rehabilitation exercises. The doctors have found that pain in the cervical spine is often caused by herniated discs or disc abnormalities, known as cervical disc disease. Between each vertebra lies a cartilage disc. These discs act as shock absorbers for the spine. Herniated discs bulge from their natural position and may pinch or apply pressure against cervical nerves. This pressure on the cervical nerves often causes pain. Cervical traction decompresses the herniated disc by gently extending the space between the cervical vertebrae, releasing the pressure from the cervical nerves. We have found that adding this to your rehabilitation program, as needed, is extremely beneficial in correcting and reversing disc degeneration.
Several changes take place in the body once physical activity is initiated. A person’s respiratory rate, blood flow, and oxygen and nutrient levels delivered to the cells increases. If one neglects this priming procedure, the body will function less efficiently and the workout will produce less results.
Warming up preps the nervous syregenerative, heightens mental awareness and alertness, and loosens up joints and muscles to make them less prone to injuries, which will make your chiropractic adjustment more beneficial. Warming up jump-starts the fluid located in the joints, minimizing the risk for wear and tear of the muscles. It gives the heart a suitable period to adjust and pump blood and nutrients into muscles.
