At MN Spine and Sport in Woodbury, Dr. Schreiber’s chiropractic practice is focused on the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal pain and injuries, with an emphasis on the structure and function of the human body.
After injuries, joints may lose some of their range-of-motion. Dr. Schreiber utilizes chiropractic manipulation or mobilization to restore normal function and motion. Generally, this technique employs gentle pressure or a shallow thrust to restore optimal motion. An adjustment is sometimes accompanied by a “popping” noise, which results from the joint’s release of gas. Almost all joints can be mobilized or manipulated (including the neck, back, shoulder, elbow, wrist hand, hip, knee, ankle, feet, and even the jaw!)
To date, many studies of chiropractic adjustment have proven its effectiveness, safety, and high levels of patient satisfaction. In 1994, the U.S. Agency for Health Care Policy deemed this technique as the gold standard for treating low back pain. Since the agency’s initial findings, more research has been conducted on neck pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, and physical rehabilitation. Each of the study’s findings supports the role of chiropractic care and its manipulative procedures.
