Motion Palpation

Chiropractic motion palpation, or motion analysis, is used to discern spinal column dysfunction. This technique is based on the idea that muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissues are the cause of vertebra displacement. To determine which soft tissues are responsible for joint dysfunction, we palpate the areas surrounding the joint in question while moving the spine into different angles. This method not only helps to pinpoint the anomalies, but also helps to determine the direction and force needed to correct the issue.

Motion palpation has been the accepted standard diagnostic tool for chiropractors in the United State since the early 1980s and assists us in determining the most beneficial course of treatment.
