Y-Strap Adjustments in Edina

Dr. Brenda Y-strap treatment on male patient's neckDr. Brenda uses her hands to adjust the spine, shoulders, wrists, fingers, knees, feet, and ankles. There are various ways to adjust for spinal misalignment to address pain in the neck, back, extremities (such as shoulders, wrists, knees, and feet), and Dr. Brenda prefers to tailor the adjustment to what a person needs.

Along with using her hands as her main “tool” to adjust, Dr. Brenda has other instruments or devices that help address chronic neck, back, hip, shoulder, jaw, and knee pain, to name a few. A unique adjustment that Dr. Brenda is trained on is the Y-Strap adjustment.


What Is It?

The Y-Strap adjustment works by stretching the spine, particularly the neck and upper back, by gently pulling the head along the Y-axis of the body. This pulling force generates a decompression in the vertebral discs. The force applied can utilize different speeds and force, depending on what a person’s body needs.

The reason the Y-strap adjustment is uncommon among the chiropractic profession is that it uses a strap that can be scary for patients at first. However, Dr. Brenda takes her time and explains the technique before and while she is doing the adjustment to fit your comfort level. Many patients who have received this adjustment love it.

Who It Helps

Dr. Brenda likes to use this technique for people who suffer from migraines, headaches, chronic pain in the neck, upper back pain, or tight muscles. It is also great for those who are difficult to adjust while in other positions.

Most people feel the movement in their neck and upper back, but some feel the movement all the way down their spine into their tailbone. The Y-strap/Y-axis traction technique also allows the joints and muscles to recuperate toward their natural tone.
