What are spinal manipulations and adjustments?

Spinal manipulation is also commonly referred to as chiropractic adjustment. During a chiropractic adjustment, our chiropractor uses hands-on techniques or a small instrument to apply controlled and sudden force to a joint of the spine. The goal of spinal manipulation is to improve functionality and range of motion by restoring alignment to the joints of the spine.

You may hear a slight popping noise during a spinal manipulation, which is caused by the release of gas bubbles from the joint. This is perfectly normal and should not cause you any pain. Spinal manipulation or adjustment can be used for a wide variety of conditions, including:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Pinched nerves
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated discs
  • Scoliosis

What are the benefits of spinal manipulations and adjustments?

There are many benefits associated with spinal manipulations and adjustments. These benefits include:

  • Reduced pain: By restoring alignment to spine joints, chiropractic adjustments can help to reduce pain in the back, neck, and other areas of the body.
  • Improved functionality and range of motion: When the joints of the spine are properly aligned, it can help improve your overall functionality and range of motion.
  • Reduced inflammation: Spinal manipulations and adjustments can help reduce inflammation throughout the body.
  • Improved nervous system function: Chiropractic adjustments can help to improve the function of the nervous system by removing interference in the nerve pathways.
  • Increased flexibility: If your body has been feeling stiff and tight, chiropractic adjustments can help to increase your flexibility.

How often should I get spinal manipulations and adjustments?

The frequency of your spinal manipulations and adjustments will depend on the severity of your condition and your overall health. Some people may only need to come in for a few adjustments, while others may need to come in for regular adjustments. Our chiropractor will develop a treatment plan that is tailored specifically for you.

Are these procedures safe?

Spinal manipulations and adjustments are generally safe for most people. There is a small risk of side effects, such as soreness, but these side effects are usually temporary and will go away on their own. However, you need to choose a qualified and experienced chiropractor to perform these procedures to ensure your safety.
