Dr. Thomas Kopsch
A chiropractic adjustment is the art of using a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is fixated, “locked up,” or not moving properly. This adds motion to the joint, helping the bones gradually return to a more normal position and motion. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is to achieve improved spinal function, improved nervous system function, and improved overall health.
There are many ways to adjust the spine. Usually the doctor’s hands or a specially designed instrument delivers a brief, highly accurate thrust. Some adjustment methods are quick; whereas others require slow, constant pressure. After years of training and clinical experience, Dr. Kopsch has become highly skilled in the delivery of myriad adjustments.
COX DISTRACTION MANIPULATION creates a “push, pull, pumping” effect on the intervertebral disc space. This allows the nucleus pulposus (A) inside the disc to assume its central position within the anular fibers and relieve irritations on the spinal nerve (B) caused by inflammation. It also increases the intervertebral disc height (C) to remove tension on the anular fibers and nerve (B) by creating more room and improving circulation.
Cox distraction manipulation realigns your spine, restoring vertebral joints (D)
to their physiological relationships of motion. It also improves posture and movement
while relieving pain, improving bodily functions, and fostering a state of well-being.
Intersegmental lumbar retraction:
Used to increase spinal mobility and reduce disc protrusion.
Used to increase circulation and aid in reduction of muscle spasms.
Used to increase joint mobility, as well as endurance to supporting musculature.
Used to relieve pain and spasms while supporting weakened musculature.
