Adjustments and Manipulation
A chiropractic adjustment is the primary chiropractic treatment method for back pain.
Joint pressure is relieved, inflammation is reduced, and nerve function is improved by spinal manipulation. Since the ancient Greek Hippocrates detailed manipulative methods in his writings around 1500 B.C., it has been a trusted form of treatment. Spinal manipulation is utilized to treat allergies, menstrual cramps, and headaches, among other things.
How Does Spinal Manipulation Work?
Chiropractors employ well over 100 different types of adjustment procedures across the world. Some practitioners utilize force and twisting, while others use gentler tactics. These procedures are meant to restore or increase joint function with the goals of lowering pain and eliminating joint inflammation, regardless of how they are conducted.
When vertebrae shift out of place, there is an overall systemic response from the muscular system to the central nervous system. Our nerves, immune system, and intellect cannot work at their best without appropriate alignment and flow.
Overall, spinal adjustments and manipulations are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level without any discomfort. When the body is properly aligned, it can respond and operate as it was designed to.
