Chiropractic Adjustments & Manipulation
Chiropractic adjustments and manipulations are the primary treatment our medical professionals use to treat chronic back pain.
This method is designed to reduce pressure on joints, promote nerve function, and reduce inflammation. The ancient Greeks were the first documented civilizations to apply comparable techniques in 1500 B.C. to treat the same cramps, headaches, and allergies that it does still to this day.
How Does Spinal Manipulation Work?
Chiropractors throughout the world apply many techniques to address the ailments of their patients. Methods range from unexpected twists to gentle pulling on the affected areas, but regardless of the performance, every technique is purposely applied to enhance joint function and reduce pain and inflammation.
Systemic responses are triggered more easily when the vertebrae are misaligned. These responses send signals throughout our central nervous system, often ending in acute or chronic pain in the subject. A chiropractor’s principal mission is to restore the alignment in the spine and return flow throughout this complete central nervous system.
Adjustments and alignments are the best way to keep the body functioning at an optimal level without chronic soreness or discomfort. The services we provide to our patients ensure your body continues to work exactly as it should – maybe even better!
