Dr. Jere gives gentle, safe and effective chiropractic adjustments.

A healthy nervous system, particularly a healthy spinal column, is a key ingredient of good health. On occasion vertebrae become misaligned and put pressure on the nerves exiting your spinal cord. This misalignment of a vertebra is called a subluxation.

A chiropractic adjustment is a very common method for Dr. Jere to treat Back Pain, Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain, Knee Pain, extremity pain and other painful conditions caused by subluxations. When it comes to chiropractic adjustments for pain relief, Dr. Jere has a 98% success rate.

The adjustment itself is gentle, safe and non-invasive. The technique is similar to osteopathic manipulation, performed by licensed DO’s (or Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine). There are MD practitioners who are certified in this practice, as well.

What is a Chiropractic adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment can handle a variety of pains.

Chiropractic adjustment is the use of a specific low force in a precise direction that helps normalize spinal function. This is where Dr. Jere gently manipulates your spine so any joints that aren’t moving properly can be put back into motion. Adjustment of the affected joint and tissues restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.

Dr. Jere uses various adjustment techniques to be able to customize his treatment to each patient. That’s because every patient and every subluxation is different and might require a distinct approach. Even the weight, size and muscle structure of the patient needs to be taken into consideration when selecting the proper adjustment technique.

For gentle adjustments, Dr. Jere uses several low-force adjustment techniques and he will use the one that will be the most effective for your situation.

Chiropractic care isn’t just for those people who have been involved in an accident or suffer from chronic back, neck or extremity pain. Chiropractic care can benefit many people with a great number of health conditions. That’s because with chiropractic adjustments you are opening up the nervous system flows to different parts of the body. This allows an afflicted part of the body to receive the necessary energy to heal itself.

Even chiropractic adjustments given to maintain a healthy spine can relieve a variety of conditions. Correcting spinal nerve and joint stress caused by vertebral subluxations allows the body to access its full innate healing capacity. By restoring optimum nerve function, many health conditions and symptoms often disappear as the body heals itself.
