Chiropractic Adjustments In Tucker
Chiropractic Adjustment is a procedure in which trained practitioners (chiropractors) use small instruments or their hands to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint.
The goal of chiropractic adjustment, or spinal manipulation, is to address improper structural alignment and improve your overall physical function.
Chiropractic Adjustment Health Benefits
One of the greatest benefits of chiropractic care is it’s a surgery-free and drug-free path to healing naturally.
People have reported that chiropractic adjustments have helped improve:
- Arthritis and joint pain
- Back pain
- Blood pressure
- Ear infections
- Healthy pregnancy
- Neck pain
- Organ function
- Surgery prevention
Although there are some misconceptions about chiropractic methods, most of the benefits of seeing a chiropractor are derived from the chiropractic adjustment.
How Chiropractors Approach Health and Wellness
Chiropractors take pride in their ability to provide a natural, drugless approach to helping their patients reach their health goals.
The fundamental principle upon which the chiropractic profession is built is that the body has the incredible, inherent ability to heal itself (under the right conditions).
Further, it is chiropractor’s job to help create an environment that promotes this ability.
Because the nervous system controls every organ and cell in your body, chiropractors focus on the alignment and overall health of your spine.
If there are shifts, chiropractors focus on helping the spine come back into proper alignment.
Why Get Chiropractic Adjustments?
Vertebral subluxations can have many causes. Some of the more common ones I’ve identified are:
- A vertebra going out of place (“misalignment”) because of a slip or fall (i.e., “microtrauma”).
- An inflammatory response caused by psychological stress, poor nutritional health, or lack of pure water.
- Joint swelling caused by damage done to the intervertebral joint.
- Osteoporosis or degenerative changes of the spine or intervertebral discs.
- The entire spine is misaligning globally due to poor posture.
- Trigger points and tight back muscles that pull the vertebrae out of place.
Health Conditions Treated By Chiropractic Adjustments
Low Back Pain and Neck Pain
In a study published in the British Medical Journal 2003, 183 patients with neck pain were randomly assigned to manual therapy (spinal mobilization), physiotherapy (mainly exercise) or general practitioner care (counseling, education, and medication) in a 52-week study.
Results indicated that chiropractic adjustments resulted in quicker recovery than physiotherapy and general practitioner care.
Moreover, total expenses related to care for the chiropractic patients were about one-third of the costs for the physiotherapy or general practitioner care patients.
Headaches (Tension and Migraine)
Second only to back pain, headaches are one of the most common conditions managed by chiropractors.
A group trial indicated that 22 percent of people who sought regular chiropractic treatment experienced a 90 percent decrease in number attacks. In that same study, 49 percent said they had a noticeable reduction in pain intensity.
Few medical interventions can initiate headache relief like chiropractic adjustments can.
