focusing on promoting proper movement of the spine and extremities by applying an impulse adjustment directly over a restricted joint. This stretches the capsule surrounding the joint, loosening it so the segment can move more effectively. Once this release occurs, the muscles that are splinted and guarded to protect the malfunction can now relax and let go.
This adjustment helps to balance the mechanical forces on the body to prevent abnormal wear and tear that can result from acute injuries, repetitive stress, or postural overloads. Muscle imbalances that are long-lasting can make acute injuries become chronic conditions. Proper exercise and home rehabilitation can address this to help strengthen the balancing so the adjustments hold more effectively.
In addition to restoring motion, this impulse acts as a stimulus to the nervous system by enhancing the two-way communication between the brain and spinal cord. This gives the body an improved awareness about its position in space that can prevent further injury and enhance performance.
