What Is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
Chiropractic adjustments are also called spinal manipulation, chiropractic manipulation or therapeutic adjustments. An adjustment involves moving vertebrae that are not moving properly, stuck or have abnormal movement. These changes to your spine can move the vertebrae back into place or help to correct the movement that causes you discomfort.
What can I expect to feel during a Chiropractic Adjustment?
Our doctors specialize in low-force techniques using specialized tables to achieve most adjustments. It is not typical for patients to report additional pain or discomfort during the adjustment. Patients often feel an immediate improvement in their pain levels and ability to move.
What can I expect after a Chiropractic Adjustment?
Most patients feel reduced pain or tension levels in their back and spinal column immediately following treatment. Some minor discomfort afterward has also been reported by some but is typically associated with back muscles that are tense. This discomfort is typically short-lived. Your chiropractor may suggest using ice, have you rest, or get a massage to reduce your back tension. When appropriately treated, the effects of muscle pain can be reduced in a matter of hours.
Chiropractic adjustments can be a significant and effective form of treatment for neck and lower back pain. While there may be many causes of a sore neck or back, chiropractic care can help to diagnose these issues and offer some possible remedies. If your chiropractor can fix your pain, the adjustments are usually quick office visits.
Additionally, the side effects of a chiropractic adjustment are much smaller than alternative medications. Chiropractic adjustments also cost less than some of the other alternative treatment options like injections or surgery. If you are experiencing neck or back pain, it is a good idea to schedule an appointment with your chiropractor as soon as possible. Receiving rapid care can help reduce the amount of time it takes to return to a pain-free lifestyle.
