Science Behind Chiropractic
At the Da Vinci Centre, we are strong believers that the body has a powerful self-healing ability. The bodies structure (primarily the spine) and its function is closely related, and this relationship affects ones health. Chiropractic therapy aims to normalize this relationship between structure and function and assist the body as it heals.
Chiropractic is an Alternative Medical System. Chiropractors perform adjustments (manipulations) to the spine or other parts of the body. The goal is to correct alignment problems, ease pain, and support the body’s natural ability to heal itself. They may also use other treatments including:
- Heat and ice
- Electrical stimulation
- Ultra Sound
- Relaxation techniques
- Dietary supplements
- Computerized Pro Adjustor
- Cold Laser
- Neural Therm Scan
- sEMG static/dynamic Study
- Kinesio Taping
- Computerized Postural Grid Evaluation

ProAdjuster: Enhancing our Chiropractic Treatments
by Combining Tradition with Technology
To better understand, let’s examine the idea of palpation. When a chiropractor palpates your spine, they are checking for joint fluidity, motion and or rigidity. Improper motion affecting the nerve function is called subluxation. In a similar fashion to palpation, the ProAdjuster can determine whether the vertebra’s motion is too rigid or too fluid. The spine should not be rigid (hypo-mobile). Instead of utilizing the chiropractor’s manual techniques as to what areas are hyper or hypo-mobile, the ProAdjuster measures precise levels of motion. Therefore, the ProAdjuster can isolate a problem effectively and accurately.
