CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL AND EXTREMITY ADJUSTMENTS
Dr. Tereo utilizes a full spine approach to evaluating and adjusting the spinal column. As a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, Dr. Tereo has advanced training in restoring function to the extremities (shoulders, arms, hands, wrists, knees, ankles, and feet). In some cases osseous adjustments are not indicated yet altered joint function is present. In these cases Dr. Tereo utilizes a hand held adjusting tool called an Activator which delivers a gentle pressure to the joint being addressed.
Hand held adjusting instruments are precision tools which can deliver variable pressure controlled by the doctor to help restore function to joints of the spine and extremities.
LOW FORCE INSTRUMENT ADJUSTMENTS
There are two types of adjustment instruments utilized by Dr. Tereo which are featured below.
DROP TABLE ADJUSTING
This is a specific chiropractic method that uses a special table with several segments called drop pieces. These segments can be cocked up a fraction of an inch, so when the thrust is delivered, the table will drop this fraction of an inch. The object of the drop is to distract (open) the joint during the adjustment. The drop pieces assist Dr. Tereo's thrust and work with the force of gravity thus minimizing the force required for the adjustment.
