Often because we live in such a stressful environment and have poor diets, our adrenal glands (which produces adrenal and cortisol) get overworked and this over production of hormones can result in a state of ligament laxity. This means your ligaments which hold your joints in place may be hyper-mobile. If this is the case with a patient they do far better with low-force adjustments and balancing of the musculature in order to heal.
On the contrary, a person who has very little flexibility and joints which are locked ‘out of place’ they may do better with laser therapy or physiotherapy to loosen the ligaments and muscles before using the standard chiropractic adjustment called “Diversified Technique”.
