What to Know About Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care consists of numerous adjusting therapies that provide balance and alignment to the spine and its surrounding soft tissues. When fully functioning, the spine provides structure, support, balance, and flexibility, all of which nurture a healthy body and contribute to the integrity of our movements.

Chiropractic adjustments or spinal manipulations remove restrictions and imbalances so the body can heal naturally. These non-invasive, conservative solutions can often replace surgeries and pain-masking medications. 

Through precise manipulation and adjusting of vertebrae, discs, and soft tissues, structure is enhanced, pain is relieved, and proper movement is repaired. 

Are Chiropractic Adjustments Safe?

Adjusting the spine or affected areas of the body is one of the safest forms of care, and the effects are long-lasting. Chiropractic is trusted worldwide and has been used for centuries to empower the body with its gentle, comprehensive, and natural approach. 

Those of all ages, abilities, and lifestyles have used chiropractic adjustments to find comfort and balance. 

Spinal manipulation delivers several benefits that can improve the overall quality of life, including:

  • Improved comfort
  • Improved flexibility, range of motion, and movement patterns
  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Improved posture
  • Improved joint function and health
  • Muscle and soft tissue strengthening
  • Improved circulation
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Fast recovery process with little to no downtime
  • Increased energy
  • Increased focus and productivity
  • Enhanced physical performance

When in pain, the body is communicating that it needs attention; it’s important to listen and get the best possible support for you and your injury. Chiropractic adjustments are often turned to for their quick results, but they can also reduce further injury, which decreases the need for more aggressive medical treatments. 

Chiropractic Care Techniques

Our St. Paul chiropractic clinic incorporates various manual techniques to naturally support spine and joint health. After the patient receives a meticulous physical exam and the injury is determined, we’ll go over your diagnosis and explain how to best treat you and your condition. 

The goal is to end your symptoms, but we also want to heal the injury, so those symptoms don’t come back. You can trust our adjustments to get you comfortable and strong. 

What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

The spine comprises bones called vertebrae; each is separated by a disc with a hard outer shell and a soft, gel-like center. Sometimes the vertebrae become restricted, the joints can lock up, or discs move out of place; this can be painful and make flexibility or movements challenging. 

Chiropractic adjustments effectively solve these issues, focusing on establishing correct positioning and enhancing spinal movement patterns.  

Some of the chiropractic adjustments we offer include:

Chiropractic Adjusting

Manual or Hands-Only Adjustments: Traditional Adjusting 

Using a manual approach to eliminating spine dysfunction, Dr. Collins targets affected areas to safely manipulate the structure using slight and effective pressure. Vertebrae will move into place, removing restrictions, promoting proper movement patterns, and providing comfort. 

Flexion/Distraction Adjusting: Cox Technic

This adjustment takes place on a specially designed table that helps us administer flexion-distraction and decompression as the spine is manipulated. The traction table takes pressure off discs by stretching and moving the soft tissues away from targeted discs. This relieves back pain, sciatica, disc pain, joint discomfort, and more. 

Instrument Adjusting: Activator

This adjustment uses a hand-held instrument. The instrument delivers a fast but low force thrust into joints and tissues and is very comfortable, especially for those in significant pain. This relieves back pain, neck pain, disc pain, joint discomfort, and more. 


Using thin needles over affected soft tissues, acupuncture removes toxins, promotes healthy circulation of oxygen and blood, and offers numerous other benefits, such as reduced inflammation and stress and improved motion, flexibility, and sleep.

Manual Therapy Techniques

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) 

This therapy technique uses active stretching and isometric contraction of targeted muscle groups. It’s designed to improve range of motion and flexibility by creating more length in a muscle. 

Active Release Technique (ART)

Scar tissue can become painful and reduce range of motion and flexibility, ART offers soft tissue therapies that relieve tension and pressure on affected areas by breaking up these adhesions. As Dr. Collins manipulates the area, the patient will be asked to move in a specific manner, promoting recovery. 

Post Isometric Relaxation (PIR)

This technique provides myofascial pain relief by stretching the affected muscle then applying contraction against minor resistance. The process reduces muscle tightening and spasms and can be used on upper and lower body soft tissue discomforts.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger points can be active or passive. Active trigger points actively refer pain away from the trigger point, passive points are only painful at the point. Treatment usually involves either direct compression therapy with human hands, a tool or can involve inserting needles into the trigger points. The procedures are safe, effective, and often provide immediate relief. 

You don’t have to live with pain.

Why You Should Choose a Chiropractor to End Your Pain

With an emphasis on overall body performance, chiropractors offer comprehensive support using the safest means to get results. When the spine loses its integrity, many other areas of the body suffer, which can lead to further pain, stress, and the inability to partake in your daily routine. 

Many kinds of healthcare turn to opiates, over-the-counter medication, and invasive procedures that require considerable downtime. Chiropractic care depends on natural remedies that promote a faster, more streamlined recovery process—understanding that strengthening the body and learning how to properly support your spine is key to success. 

We don’t want your pain to start affecting your lifestyle, making work, activities, and socializing difficult or impossible. With chiropractic care, you get evidence-based solutions that contribute to a healthy body and mind.
