What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is the process of using spinal manipulation to help improve the body’s natural function. It is performed by a trained provider called a chiropractor using proven techniques for increased wellness. This natural treatment is generally preferred by many people who want a drug-free way to improve range of motion, relieve pain, and generally feel their best.
What Are the Benefits of a Chiropractic Adjustment?
There are multiple benefits to undergoing a chiropractic adjustment. As we have already mentioned, a chiropractic adjustment does not involve narcotics and is incredibly non-invasive. This means that most people are able to return to work or other activities immediately after treatment. It also works fairly quickly. In some cases, improvement is noticeable after only a few treatments or less. Chiropractic care is also proven and uses many of the same techniques that have worked for patients for decades, which is why most people who undergo the process keep returning even after they feel great as a way of maintaining a high level of wellness.
What Can You Expect During a Chiropractic Adjustment?
If you have never had a chiropractic adjustment before, you might wonder what to expect during the appointment. We will ask you a series of questions regarding your past and current health status to determine if you are experiencing neck pain, back pain, headaches, shoulder pain, and other related conditions. From there, we will look at your spine and posture to determine if any issues are present. During the actual chiropractic adjustment process, you will lay on a padded table and the chiropractor will use his or her hands and/or a small adjustment instrument to manipulate the spine to improve overall range of motion. This is usually not painful and some people even report feeling a click or pop (known as a cavitation) of the spinal joints followed by pain relief. Effective chiropractic adjustments require an accurate evaluation and prompt care using safe, effective chiropractic techniques.
