Recently, a longtime patient spoke with a friend with a shoulder injury about coming to Monterey Family Chiropractic. Her friend, who has not seen a chiropractor before, asked if the adjustment would hurt or create loud noises, because if so, she would be afraid of trying chiropractic.
Fortunately, in the many years Dr. Peter Ruiz has been a Doctor of Chiropractic, he has developed several techniques that can be tailored to the needs of each patient. Additionally, Dr. Ruiz utilizes high-tech means to diagnose why the spine is subluxated and can pinpoint the problem area quickly, which leads to faster relief from dis-ease and pain. From 3-day-old babies to 98-year-olds, Dr. Ruiz taylors his chiropractic adjustments to each person differently.
For example, a tiny baby does not need much more than a few gentle adjustments to align the spine, and the adjustment does not produce any pain or cracking sounds. Similar to a small baby, an elderly person above 80 years has different requirements, yet all adjustments are gentle. Highly active athletes and vivacious individuals may require more pressure during a chiropractic adjustment, but if popping sounds are not to your liking, there are many silent techniques that will properly realign the spine.
