spinal manipulative therapy

Spinal manipulative therapy, or SMT, is the application of a quick “thrust” to a joint or multiple joints to the target segment(s).  SMT is a “momentum-induced” technique that aims to target multiple joints within the spinal column or a single joint within the arms or legs.  These “manufactured-barrier” techniques are utilized by highly-trained physical therapists and/or physicians and are much different from the chiropractic approach, which is commonly referred to “locking-down/combined-leverage” techniques.  SMT can help improve joint range-of-motion, increase blood flow, decrease tissue restrictions and even improve soft-tissue mobility.
