How Does the Chiropractic Y-Strap Adjustment Work?
The Y-Strap adjustment works by stretching the spine pulling the head in the Y-Axis of the body. This pulling force generates a decompression in the vertebral discs.
The Y-Strap is used for stretching purposes with slow and smooth stretching motion, but some doctors prefer to apply a HVLA (High Velocity, Low Amplitude) movement. This is when the Y-Strap applies an “adjustment” to the user.
The High Velocity Low Amplitude procedure generates a swift decompression within the vertebrae discs that generates vacuum, enabling nutrients to flow into the discs.
The great advantage in using the Y-Strap to mobilize the spine is the straight angle and non-existent torsion of the procedure to reduce spinal compression and muscle stiffness.
