Here is an important tip about side posture stability. I was just at a seminar recently where there were many young chiropractors watching veteran chiropractors adjust. I noticed that many of these veterans were really unstable during their adjustments, which over time can lead to injury.
What we want to talk about today is how you can adjust in a way that is less stressful on your body, will give you more energy all day long, and that will ultimately help you practice longer without blowing your body out.
We want to make the adjustment as specific as possible and in order to do so, I have to be relaxed. If you are relaxed and stable, you can do this all day long and the patient will say it’s much more specific. There is a lot more to this and we cover it in a lot of depth in our seminars. But what I do want you to do is take a look at your own adjustments and ask yourself a couple of questions:
How much leverage and force is reverberating back into my body?
Where do my hands go off of my midline?
The more your hands go off of your midline, the more leverage is going back into your body. Learn to use the bones of your body as frames which will help to minimize the leverage into your own body. Have a look at your own adjusting and see where you can clean that up.
