Newburgh Chiropractor


What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

Chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which trained specialists (chiropractors) use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint. The goal of chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation, is to correct structural alignment and improve your body's physical function.  This will help restore normal Nervous System communication between your brain and every cell, tissue, organ or gland in your body.


What is Spinal Manipulation

Spinal manipulation is a therapeutic intervention performed on spinal articulations which are synovial joints. These articulations in the spine that are amenable to spinal manipulative therapy include the z-joints, the atlanto-occipital, atlanto-axial, lumbosacral, sacroiliac, costotransverse and costovertebral joints.  Although it can be performed by Osteopaths, and rarely physical therapists, Chiropractors are trained specifically to use it as their primary form of intervention to health imbalances.

Can I adjust myself?

Many times you may notice people who "crack" their neck or back with a twist or turn of their head or body.  And they will tell you it "feels better" after they do it.  Unfortunately, what the person may not know is it is never normal to be able to self adjust a joint in the body, as this creates extra stress on that joint and will eventually lead to joint breakdown over time.  The joint(s) they are able to adjust themselves are hypermobile joints that are the body's response to the true problem, the hypomobile joint(s).  These hypomobile joint(s) are a result of a more serious health imbalance.  Therefore, it is never advised to adjust yourself and if you are able to do that, it warrants a discussion with a chiropractor about what you are doing and what should be done to help the situation.

Work with a Holistic Chiropractor

When one has health imbalances and would prefer to get to the source of the problem and address the concern as fully as possible, consulting with a Holistic Chiropractor will help you to do that.  By addressing the 6 different causes of a health concern will allow for the most complete care possible.  If you do not address the whole picture, conditions get worse with time and lead to unneccessary pain and sufferring. 


Dr. Huntoon has a single mission:

Your Choice

Health concerns are a major source of lost happiness and lost joy in all of our lives. Finding a solution that is agreeable and enables you to get back to your life is important. Please appreciate that you always have the more invasive surgery and prescription medication available to you as a last resort. What many Traditional Medical Doctors may not share is, many times, once you begin that journey into medication and/or surgery, it alters your original body from the one that you were born with. Unfortunately, at that time, more conservative and natural treatments may no longer be viable. I encourage you to consider that before making any decisions about treatment for your health. As always I am here to help. 
Your Choice:
  • Continue doing the same thing and nothing changes or it may get worse


  • Try something different and get a different result that makes you happier and healthier.
The Choice is Yours
