The Oakland-Based Chiropractors at The Shift Offer the Following

Adjustment
 

We use a more holistic approach to adjustments, looking at the spine as as an element of a much larger system -- the human body. The spine and nervous system are critical components of the complex network that is the human body. Because these systems are interdependent, they can’t be treated in isolation. Effective healing needs to address all of them, and our holistic adjustments do just that.

The good news is the damage done by the modern sedentary lifestyle can be undone with Foundation Training -- the second pillar of our practice. Think of Foundation Training as a hybridization of yoga, physical therapy, and pilates. We will teach you these routine maintenance exercises and show you how to incorporate them into your daily lives to promote health and wellbeing. This will keep your soft tissue limber, reducing the likelihood of injury.

Chiropractic Adjustments 

Adjustments allow for healthy joint motion, which translates to less pain, less emotional stress, and more efficient healing. People often think of adjustments as sometimes violent popping and cracking of joints. We take a more restrained approach, using the minimum amount of force. Our goal is to guide your body toward healing itself. Though forcing a joint back into alignment may temporarily alleviate pain, it may not offer a longterm solution.

 
healthy living
 

Many of the issues and injuries we see are caused or worsened by our sedentary lifestyle. Much of modern life is spent sitting. Because the human body is adaptable, it adjusts to the seated position, shortening some muscle groups while lengthening others. Eventually, the body conforms to this shape.

Injuries occur when we ask the body to perform movements that were once standard, such as squatting or bending at the waist, or more athletic movements, such as running or jumping. The muscles and soft tissues can’t handle the demand in their new shape, resulting in sprains, strains, skeletal misalignment, or worse.

Soft Tissue And Extremity Adjusting

Our Chiropractors know specific myofascial release work to support adjustment to extremity injuries  like wrist, elbow, knee, ankle, foot and shoulder subluxations. This helps reduce inflammation and supports the spine so people can recover fully.
