What Does a Chiropractic Adjustment Do?
A chiropractic adjustment is a medical procedure where trained specialists (chiropractors) use either their hands or small instruments to apply sudden, controlled force to a spinal joint, a process known as spinal manipulation. This is done to improve spinal motion and improve your body’s physical functions. Chiropractic adjustments are typically done to help alleviate low back pain, neck pain, and headaches.
After treatment, you may experience some fatigue or pain where you received treatment. You may also experience headaches, but these are not common side-effects.
Chiropractic Treatment Process
Chiropractic adjustments requires a professional to place a patient’s body in an optimal position to allow it to heal itself. The main focus is usually the realignment of the spine in order to reduce pressure on sensitive nerves. As a result, relieving this pressure can correct any body pain and other problematic issues in the central nervous system.
Most people visit a chiropractor because of persistent body pain. These conditions include:
- Lower Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder and Joint Stiffness
- Tension Headaches or Migraines
Chiropractic services can also reduce the need for minor back surgery. Studies have also shown that the relaxes effects of chiropractic services can help boost the immune system, increase energy, and improve digestion. As a result of feeling better and less in pain, your blood pressure could also be reduced and your breathing capacity will improve.
