What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is a type of treatment that targets the spine or a specific joint. Gentle pressure is applied to the area to shift the joint back into its proper place if it has become misaligned. Misalignment of a joint can happen as a result of auto accidents, personal injuries, or sometimes just everyday life.
If a joint is out of alignment it can often cause pain and discomfort. If the spine is out of alignment it can cause pain as well as other health problems throughout the body. There are different types of adjustments available including manual adjustments and Arthrostim adjustments.
Spinal adjustment is a foundational type of chiropractic care that aims to gently move the spine back into its proper alignment. This can decrease pain and increase energy, health, and vitality throughout the body. When the spine is not properly aligned, the spinal column cannot properly send and receive messages from the brain. By fixing this problem, you allow the nervous system to function better.
Disc injuries are another type of condition which can benefit from adjustment. If you have been diagnosed with an injured disc in your spine, a spinal adjustment will be necessary to help heal the disc.
Adjustments are not just for your back. A chiropractor can also perform adjustments on other parts of your body as well. These are called extremity adjustments. Extremity adjustments can address issues in the arms, legs, hips, wrists, ankles, fingers, and toes. This type of treatment can be very beneficial if you are dealing with pain and stiffness in your joints. Pain and stiffness in joints can result from arthritis or chronic inflammation.
