Chiropractic adjustments, also known as spinal manipulations, refer to a treatment technique that brings correct alignment back to the spine. During a chiropractic adjustment, our chiropractor, Dr. Wesley Stewart, will gently apply pressure to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or are failing to correctly function. Chiropractic adjustments correct subluxations within the spine, relieving nerve compression, alleviating pain, and bringing a wider range of mobility back to the body. Adjustments are beneficial for a number of common pain conditions, including back pain, neck pain, sciatica, whiplash injuries, scoliosis, shoulder pain, bulging and herniated discs, and other musculoskeletal conditions.
Adjustments are often the first step for relieving and correcting chronic back and neck pain. This is because adjustments support healthy vertebrae alignment, which is a cornerstone for long-lasting pain relief. When one or more of the vertebrae are misaligned, they may compress nearby nerves and muscles. This compression can trigger recurring pain sensations throughout the body. The brain communicates with internal organs by sending messages through the central nervous system. Nerve compression impacts the brain’s ability to correctly send and receive these messages, triggering pain and other health problems. Adjustments restore correct alignment, alleviating pressure and reducing or eliminating pain.
If you are struggling with chronic pain, the good news is that chiropractic adjustments are an effective alternative to prescription painkillers and surgery. While drugs can provide immediate pain relief, painkillers are not a long-lasting solution for back and neck pain. Drugs work by numbing the brain’s ability to perceive pain; once drugs wear off, the pain will return. This can lead to a scary cycle of drug use and even dependence. Chiropractic care is different. Adjustments target the root cause for pain, providing long-lasting pain relief without the need for medication.
If you are new to chiropractic care or have never received an adjustment before, it’s natural to worry an adjustment will be painful or that all adjustments involve loud “popping” sounds. In reality, adjustments are generally accompanied by a sensation of relief, rather than pain. Hearing a popping sound is rare, but it’s no cause for concern; this sound is simply the natural release of gases that have been trapped between misaligned joints. In some cases, minor discomfort has been reported if the surround muscles spasm or tense up during chiropractic care. Our chiropractor has substantial experience with chiropractic adjustments and tailors each adjustment to meet patients’ unique pain relief and injury recovery needs. Integrating treatment with complementary therapies including physiotherapy reduces the likelihood for muscle spasms and enhances the benefits of chiropractic adjustments.
Before beginning treatment, our chiropractor will complete a comprehensive diagnostic exam to determine the location of any subluxations within the spine. We then create a custom treatment program that integrates chiropractic adjustments with appropriate complementary therapies. Our goal is to help you live a healthy, active, pain-free life!
