The Chiropractic Adjustment in Malaysia
Everything You Need To Know About Chiropractic Adjustment in Malaysia. A spinal manipulation performed by a chiropractor is called a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractors employ a variety of techniques to perform an adjustment. Before adjusting, however, a skilled chiropractor will examine the condition of the patient thoroughly. Then, the chiropractor selects the adjustment technique that best suits the patient’s particular problem.
A chiropractic adjustment is through the use of either an instrument or a “hands-on” method. The “hands-on” way has been around since the inception of chiropractic medicine, in 1896. However, current research supports a better and more accurate means of chiropractic treatment. The most accurate means of treatment are through mechanized systems such as an activator. The activator method is beneficial as it eliminates the risk usually associated with the manual means.
Instrumentally assisted adjustments (treatments), as provided by chiropractors, are chiropractic adjustments. They enable chiropractors to target a particular segment of the spine or a joint without irritating tissues or structures. In our centers, our chiropractors utilize the activator methods when treating a spinal disc patient or a patient who presents with a complicated orthopedic condition. In complicated cases, the hands-on approach might be a contra-indication.
Goals of the Chiropractic Adjustment
The purpose of a chiropractic adjustment restores and enhances the function. An adjustment ensures the stability of the nervous system, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and it reduces the pain. An adjustment (spinal manipulation) is for joints and soft tissues that have malfunctioned. A malfunctional joint or soft tissue in chiropractic is called a “Subluxations.” The primary goal of an adjustment is to restore the neuromusculoskeletal stability. In short, adjustment stabilizes your spine and joints by getting rid of your subluxations. Neuromusculoskeletal stability according to Doctors of Chiropractic occurs when nerves, muscles, ligaments, and tendons are working at optimum levels.
Adjustments and Compressed Nerves
The primary goal of the chiropractic adjustment is to free nerve compression. Nerves dictate all functions in our body. In other words, for your arm to work well, it must have proper neuronal stimulation (nerve control). When the nerves that control the functions of your arm is compressed or pinched, your arm will stop functioning at 100%. Let’s take a closer look at the nerves of the arm. Nerves that exit from the lower portions of your neck controls every single cell in your arm. These nerves are called the brachial plexus. Now, let’s take a look at how a brachial plexus impingement cause malfunction in muscles, ligament, and joints of the arm.
The brachial plexus is a collection of five spinal nerves that emerge from the lower three segments of the neck. As mentioned earlier, every cell in your shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists, and hands are controlled and monitored by the brachial plexus. Compression of the brachial plexus can occur from pressures applied muscles or bones. The brachial plexuses emerge from the spine, pass through a canal in the neck (cervicoaxillary canal), pass in-between the muscles of the neck, and go over the first rib before entering the armpit.
Compression of Brachial Plexus Best Resolved with a Chiropractic Adjustment
Compression or impingement of the brachial plexus can occur as these nerve fibers exit the spine. They can also be compressed when they pass through muscles or over the rib leads to symptoms and malfunction. In short, if the controlling and monitoring systems in your arm is pinched, don’t expect the arm to work well. That is where our chiropractor comes in. Our clinical chiropractors’ primary goal is to identify compression of nerves that control and monitor function. To conclude, the chiropractic adjustment is the best way to ensure a better spine and joint health.
The most critical aspect of chiropractic care is the proper assessment of a patient. Once, the cause is known, the remedy is easy. The adjustment you get from our clinical chiropractor focuses on resorting proper function. Restoration of nerve function is critical to your recovery. An adjustment is the best means of freeing a pinched nerve. To summarize, spine and joint pain can benefit significantly from the expert care you get through our chiropractic adjustment.
More patients seek our methods of care for complicated and challenging cases that did not respond to the traditional chiropractic treatments. We have even had patients that failed with the Gonstead methods of care. And we have successfully treated patients with bulging disc, herniated discs, protruded discs or even extruded disc that the standard and hands-on chiropractic treatments failed. All in all, we succeeded where others could not, and the reason for our success is our collaborative methods of therapy as well as our advanced technology.
Instruments such as the “Activator” allows only a precise, premeasured amount of force to be delivered to a particular segment at a precise angle, which is impossible to accomplish manually. An instrument like the Activator is changing the non-surgical field of Spine, Joint, and Orthopedic conditions.
In our centers, we initiated the instrument-assisted methods of adjustments in 2007 and had found them to be significantly more effective in comparison to the Gonstead Methods, Diversified methods, or even Thompson Methods of spinal or joint adjustment.
Why the Activator Methods is a Better Option
Our founder, Dr. Yama Zafer (Doctor of Chiropractic) believes in avoiding the manual methods of adjustments for those that suffer from a spinal disc disorder. Manual Adjustments, according to Dr. Zafer (our founding Chiropractor), often involve rotatory movements or positioning that require putting a patient’s spine in a rotated position. According to our Chiropractor, the instrument-assisted adjustments are the best method of joint mobilization.
In the last few years, however, chiropractors have been performing more and more instrument-assisted adjustments. One potential reason for the increase is the higher number of painful joint and spine conditions that chiropractors see today. Another is a new, more in-depth understanding of the mechanisms involved in injury and malfunction.
Instrumental adjustments, such as those performed by an Activator, accomplish more than what the manual methods can do. Best of all, with the instrument-rendered adjustments patients, tend to relax better during their treatments.
Aside from being safer and having no risk whatsoever, you will not hear any cracking or popping noises emitted from your neck or back. The adjustments rendered by an instrument are not just safer; they are painless, more relaxing, and of course, significantly more efficient, especially if you have a slipped disc or a complicated joint condition. Other outstanding benefits of the instrument-assisted treatment include a faster and more thorough recovery from pain or injury.
In our centers, the technique used is dependent on a patient’s diagnosis and overall health. There are cases in which there is a need for the hands-on method of adjustment.

After thoroughly assessing your condition, we will discuss the method through which we would recommend your chiropractic adjustment. We use instrumented-assisted adjustments to help your recovery. We aim to get you better faster while decreasing any potential harmful effects.
