Benefits of Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation

Chiropractic spinal manipulation, also known as a chiropractic adjustment, is an effective treatment for back pain and associated extremity pain. A chiropractic adjustment involves using firm, targeted non-invasive pressure that is applied strategically and skillfully to the affected area in order to relieve pressure and restore proper functioning.

The affected spinal areas in question are often referred to as subluxations, which is a misalignment of one or more of the spinal vertebrae. However, chiropractic care can also be applied to issues with the discs, which are the spongy cushioned areas located between the vertebrae.

These issues can be caused by a range of injuries and conditions, including:

  • Overuse injury
  • Auto accident
  • Work accident
  • Slip and fall
  • Bad posture
  • Improper ergonomics

Chiropractic Care and Your Body

The premise behind chiropractic treatment and care is that many injuries and chronic pain conditions have a misalignment of the spine at their root. With a chiropractic adjustment, the subluxation is corrected and the injury can finally heal. Pain is often immediately relieved or at least reduced. In this way, chiropractic medicine helps to tap into the body’s own healing forces and allow it to heal naturally and permanently.

An actual chiropractic adjustment involves a quick, high velocity, a thrust of the arm applied strategically to the affected vertebra. This, in turn, causes a release of gas within the vertebrae which in turn helps release the pressure that had been contributing to the irritation and pain. The surrounding muscles that had been contracted or spasming are able to relax and return back to normal. The pressure that had been affecting the nerves in that portion of the spinal column is eased, and the nerves are no longer irritated.

Some examples of popular and effective chiropractic techniques include:

  • The Lumbar Roll
  • Table Adjustments
  • Instrument Adjustments
  • Activator Methods
  • Gonstead Technique
  • Thompson Technique

…And many more.

Chiropractic care can provide relief for a wide range of conditions that cause either chronic or acute pain. These include:

  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Auto Accident Injury
  • Overuse Injury
  • Whiplash
