Chiropractic Manipulation Therapy (CMT)

There is a substantial amount of research indicating the many benefits of Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy (CMT) for neuromusculoskeletal problems. CMT consists of passive maneuvers in which specifically directed manual forces are applied to the vertebral and extravertebral articulations of the body, with the objective of restoring mobility to restricted areas and/or restoring alignment. This can be achieved through specific-contact thrust procedures by hand or the use of gentle assisted-devices such as drop tables, Impulse Instrument Adjusting, or pelvic blocks.

Dr. Hartje has treated patients from one day old to ninety-eight years young, and he carefully chooses and/or adapts the CMT that fits best regarding the injury, other health problems, age, and patient sensitivity.
