5 Chiropractic Techniques That Will Recharge your Body & Soul

Chiropractic techniques are often given raised eyebrows and cynical eyes. But taking pain killers is not a permanent solution for shoulder pain, back pain, post-surgery pain, or any other musculoskeletal pain. It is also exhausting and frustrating to lead a life where chronic pain has become your companion, and a day without pain relievers is unbearable. So, let’s learn about chiropractic techniques and see if it can be a solution we are looking for:

Active Release Technique

Is your back pain becoming chronic and slowing you down? Do you have an upcoming sports event, and you want to be fit? Active Release Technique therapy in NYC is an ideal solution as it helps in releasing compressed nerves, improved blood flow and helps in reducing pain. It is considered to be a method that gives sweet pains, i.e. the treatment might give mild pain or soreness, but gives a lasting solution with 5-6 sessions and is a perfect alternative to surgery.


Musculoskeletal pain can impair body movements and make life stand still. Selective Functional Movement Assessment is a series of seven full-body movement tests designed by Gray Cook along with his colleagues. It helps in assessing the root cause of the problem and accordingly suggests the treatment. Rather than treating the dysfunctional movement, in the treatment one gets a detailed diagnosis where one can finally figure out whether he/she is suffering from chronic or acute pain. People suffering from sore muscles, body stiffness, difficult in walking, lower back pain and shoulder pain should consider SFMA.

Graston Technique

Whether you are suffering from neck pain or back pain, sore muscles, or tissue inflammation, Graston Technique will help in reducing pain from scars in the tissues. It is a manual therapy where gentle massage and pinpointing pain with manual instruments will help to locate the area of origin of pain. It will help in revitalising the tight muscles, enhance flexibility by improving blood flow, and is especially beneficial in the cases of tissue scars, joints pain, post-surgery pain, etc.

Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT)

Ever wondered the reason behind muscle tension? Or why some parts of the body have become weak and ache? With Neurokinetic Therapy, you can reclaim your independence as it gets straight to the source of pain and fixes the cause. The underlying treatment is not to reduce pain, which merely is body’s sign telling something is wrong. It dwells deep to identify the root cause and helps in resolving the unresolved issue. It is ideal for people who do lot of leg work, carry weight, Yogi’s as it helps in connecting brain with neuro-muscular signals. That’s why it is also called a neurological physical therapy.

Webster Technique

Did you know 4% of the pregnancies have breech babies? It is normal for a baby to change positions, but if in or after the 34th week the baby is in a breech position then there are high chances of C-section. With the help of Webster Technique, the baby will get enough room to move and get out of breech position. With alignment and massage techniques from a chiropractor, Webster Technique has helped in many deliveries with a success rate of 82%. It helps in reducing the uterine tension, intrauterine constraint, and aligning of sacrum, which helps in movement of the body leading to the head-down position.

To conclude, if you want to take charge of your life and live a fit life devoid of pills, then the afore-mentioned techniques are a must-try. Unlike pain relievers, it won’t mitigate pain rather nip it from the roots giving you a permanent solution.
