Are you familiar with chiropractic work? If you are not, then this blog is for you! if you are familiar with it, then continue to read along to learn more about our unique and holistic approach at Calispine.

Calispine is one of the few places that offers chiropractic care, extensive rehabilitative exercise, and tissue work. Today, we go over what chiropractic care is and how it can benefit you.

What Is Chiropractic Work?

Daniel David Palmer developed the field of chiropractic in 1895. Chiropractic care is built upon the idea of correcting subluxations or misalignments of the spine. Chiropractors adjust or manipulate spinal vertebrae to get the body into a more optimal position. Doing so promotes healing. We like to compare spinal subluxation to what happens when you step on a garden hose (nerves) and then allow the water to flow again (impulses).

At Calispine, chiropractic care is mainly used for musculoskeletal issues. Some patients visit our office with sharp pain, indicating that a joint is locked. Chiropractic adjustments often eliminate this pain instantly by freeing the joint.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe?

Yes! Chiropractic adjustments are very safe, and we have never seen an injury in our office from an adjustment. If you are worried about being adjusted, just let us know. We will ensure you feel 100 percent comfortable before adjusting you.

How to Know if You Qualify for Chiropractic Care

We believe most people could benefit from chiropractic adjustments. The most effective way chiropractic care help you is if you are suffering from any sharp pain, which could indicate that you have a locked joint. One adjustment can completely reset or realign the joint and restore your full range of motion.

If you do have a bones disease or are older, you may not qualify for chiropractic care. However, this does not mean we cannot treat you at our office.  Although adjustments cannot be done on these types of individuals, we are still able to treat them with rehabilitative exercises and scar tissue breakdown techniques.

Our Approach to Chiropractic Work: The Calispine Method

The Calispine Method is the best way to reduce pain and improve posture and function. Our method includes spinal adjustments, scar tissue breakdown, and functional rehabilitation. Adjustments are extremely beneficial for quick relief, but in a world where sitting and poor posture dominate our daily lives, repetitive corrective exercise is needed to improve your posture and reduce pain. Calispine is one of the few places in Encinitas that focuses on chiropractic, massage, and exercise techniques.
