Y-Strap Adjustments in Lima OH

Emergency Care Chiropractic of Lima Y-Strap

WHAT IS A Y-STRAP ADJUSTMENT?

Also called the Y-axis traction strap adjustment in Lima OH, this is an interesting form of spinal adjustment that uses a secure strap attached to the base of your skull and chin. It allows your chiropractor to stretch your neck, creating a pulling type lever. Two of the Y-strap's arms extend to a handlebar that the chiropractor uses during the session.


HOW Y-STRAP WORKS IN LIMA OH

Essentially, the straps pull your head along the y-axis of your body, thereby stretching your spine. Known as high-velocity, low-amplitude, or HVLA, this gradual stretching movement adjusts your spine. This means that it is quick and requires little force. Most importantly, according to most experts, it is completely safe.

It results in a quick mobilization of your spine at the straight angle and decompression of the vertebrae disks. This allows for nutrients to flow into your vertebrae's disks, which can offer relief from a wide variety of conditions and concerns.


HOW DOES THIS TYPE OF ADJUSTMENT FEEL LIKE?

The feeling people get from this type of spinal adjustment varies from one person to another. This form of adjustment often causes bubbles to form in the vertebrae's synovial fluid due to the stretching out of your spine.

Patients often experience different emotional reactions during the treatment. Some grimace while others laugh uncontrollably. Others may experience shock or even cry due to the initial feeling of relief. This type of adjustment helps reduce chronic back pain and repair poor posture, so you may start to feel a few inches taller.


BENEFITS OF A Y-STRAP ADJUSTMENT

If you are in excellent condition, when you stand straight up, the position of your ears should be almost exactly above the center of your shoulders. The positioning of most people's heads, however, bends farther forward than it should. This is a posture known as scholar's neck, reading neck, or forward head posture.

If you have a problem with your posture, a Y-strap adjustment may be the perfect solution. Did you know that a human head weighs as much as a bowling ball? You should hold your head straight over your shoulders. For various reasons, however, people's posture gradually creeps forward and tends to put too much pressure on the neck.

This is where Y-strap adjustments come in handy. They can play an important role when it comes to correcting your posture. If you are experiencing neck pain, back pain, posture problems, or discomfort when sitting for long periods of time, it might be time for a Y-strap adjustment!
