The chiropractor will take your neck and pull it while twisting your head. This vigorous adjustment is effective but is often the reason some fear seeking chiropractic care.
When Dr. Danielle adjusts your neck, you’ll begin by lying face down on the table. She will then have you position your head and then deliver a gentle, downward force. You may hear a pop – but you won’t have your neck twisted and snapped. For those patients who prefer the traditional vigorous neck adjustment, Dr. Danielle is happy to oblige. However, most of her patients prefer her gentle prone approach to neck adjustments.
