A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulative therapy, is the primary chiropractic treatment intervention for different types of joint dysfunction.
Spinal manipulation primarily restores normal spinal motion, relieves pressure in joints, reduces joint and nerve inflammation, and improves nerve function. It has been a trusted form of treatment since the ancient Greek Hippocrates documented manipulative techniques in his writings back in 1500 B.C. Today, spinal manipulation is effective in addressing multiple musculoskeletal conditions.
How Does Spinal Manipulation Work?
There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Some practitioners may use force and twisting, while other techniques are more gentle. Regardless of how they are performed, these techniques are intended to restore or enhance joint motion and function with the objective of reducing pain and resolving joint inflammation.
When vertebral motion is compromised, there is an overall systemic response from the muscular system to the central nervous system. Without proper movement and alignment, the nervous system cannot function at optimal levels. This will eventually effect the health of the spine and the nervous system.
Overall, spinal adjustments and manipulations are the essential way to keep the body functioning at its highest level, as well as reducing pain and discomfort. We look forward to serving your needs.
