If you have never seen a chiropractor before, the thought of getting your spine adjusted can be a scary thought. The manipulation of the spine seems daunting, but when done by a professional can be a safe alleviation of pain.
An adjustment refers to the manipulation of the vertebrae of the spine. Sometimes these spinal cord protectors move out of alignment and cause discomfort and pain. The job of a chiropractor is to find those irregularities, or subluxations, and coerce them back into place through various chiropractic techniques.
An adjustment involves high velocity thrusts applied to the vertebra with careful management by the chiropractor. This will cause a sound that signals the release of oxygen within the joint, alleviating the pressure and discomfort. Most clients describe a feeling of relief after an adjustment.
Once you have experience a chiropractic adjustment, it doesn’t seem so scary. If you or someone you know is having trouble with their spine or joints, make an appointment with us today!
