Chiropractic Adjustment

Non-Force Chiropractic at Santa Cruz Non-Force Chiropractors

Your chiropractor at Santa Cruz Non-Force Chiropractors gently adjusts misaligned joints with the directional non-force chiropractic technique that lacks the cracking and popping often associated with an adjustment.


Not your Traditional Adjustment

Many traditional techniques used by a chiropractor involve high thrusts to realign subluxations that cause cracking. Non-force techniques, however, allow your doctor to avoid inadvertently damaging tissues that are already compromised.

Direction Non-force techniques (DNFT) are ideal for use with infants and the elderly. Though gentle, they are effective in treating all ages including the serious athlete. One advantage of DNFT is that x-rays are seldom required.

Non-force Treatments Use

DNFT can relieve pain associated with many conditions including:

  • Sciatica
  • Scoliosis
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Headaches
  • Muscle spasms
  • Chronic back or neck pain
  • Whiplash
  • Herniated discs
  • Neuropathy
  • Plantar fascitis
  • TMJ
  • Vertigo

Regardless of the condition, these techniques offer several significant benefits. They require fewer visits because while some high-velocity techniques have to be performed a number of times for full effect, non-force methods often enable realignment in a much shorter time frame.
