Chiropractic Adjustments – How You Can Benefit from Chiropractic Care

What is Chiropractic Care and how can you benefit by making an appointment with your Chiropractor

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractors are individuals who have gone through extensive training in the treatment of nerve and musculoskeletal-related disorders. Patients typically think of chiropractors as being spinal experts, however modern-day chiropractors treat the entire body naturally using a combination of hands on soft tissue therapy, spinal manipulation, stretching, rehab, and physical therapy modalities.

Primarily, Chiropractors are utilized for pain relief of common body aches and pains in muscles, ligaments, bones, connective tissue, tendons and cartilage.

The education for a Chiropractor or “DC” typically includes a four-year Undergraduate Program and four plus years of Chiropractic College.

What does my first appointment involve?

Your first session includes a detailed history of your complaint so your Chiropractor can gather a thorough understanding of your pain and potential aggravating or alleviating factors. Next, you will be walked through a physical examination of your muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints to determine a potential pain generator. Sometimes patients will be referred into the medical system for x-rays or lab tests depending on the findings of the physical exam. To conclude, you and your Chiropractor will come up with a treatment plan together to reduce your pain levels, restore function and prevent future injuries.

What is a Chiropractic adjustment?

A Chiropractic adjustment or spinal manipulation is a procedure where your Chiropractor uses his or her hands to apply a quick and controlled force through your spinal joints to improve your body’s posture, decrease pain and improve physical function.

See our blog post here for more information on the Active Release Technique.

Other professions do perform spinal manipulation, including osteopaths and some physical therapists.

What are the benefits of a Chiropractic adjustment?

Improved joint range of motion – your Chiropractor will assess your spinal joints and determine what areas may benefit from treatment. When adjusted, your joints move close to their end range of motion which can improve their range of motion during your day to day life.

Improved posture – Nobody knows posture quite like a Chiropractor! Your Chiropractor will take a look to assess your posture and determine appropriate treatment plans to help you sit up or stand up straight!

Improved overall wellness – When you’re living life pain free and aligned it helps to improve your mood and overall health.

Improved athletic performance – Part of being active is moving your body and moving your joints through full ranges of motion. If you have tight muscles or restricted joints it may be more difficult or less enjoyable to be active.
