Chiropractic adjustments are popular for many conditions at Lower Cape Chiropractic in Cape Cod, MA, and Orleans, MA. What is a chiropractic adjustment? A chiropractic adjustment uses directed pressure to manipulate the spine and joints. This pressure can improve range of motion, relieve pain, and improve overall health. If you're considering chiropractic adjustments, talk to your doctor to see if they may be right for you.
How Does Chiropractic Adjustment Work?
There are many different chiropractic care techniques chiropractors use to adjust the spine. The most common method is spinal manipulation or adjustment, using pressure and thrusts to move the joints and spine into proper alignment. The chiropractor will use their hands, elbows, or a small device to apply pressure or thrusts.
You may hear a popping noise during the adjustment. This noise is caused by gas bubbles being released from the joints. The popping noise is harmless and doesn't cause any pain.
Chiropractic adjustments can also be made using an instrument, such as an activator, drop table, or roller massager. These devices help deliver a precise and gentle thrust to the joints.
What Conditions Can Chiropractic Adjustments Treat?
Chiropractic adjustments are often used to treat conditions such as:
Neck injuries cause a lot of pain and can limit your range of motion. Chiropractic adjustments can help in neck pain treatment by relieving the pain and improving your range of motion.
Back pain is one of the most common conditions that chiropractors treat. Adjustments can help in back pain treatment by taking pressure off the nerves and improving your spine's range of motion.
Headaches can be caused by many different things, including muscle tension, stress, and misaligned vertebrae in the spine. Chiropractic adjustments can help relieve headaches by reducing muscle tension and improving the spine's alignment.
Whiplash is a neck injury that occurs when your head is suddenly jerked forward or backward. This jarring motion can cause pain, stiffness, and a limited range of motion in the neck. Chiropractic adjustments can help reduce the pain and stiffness from whiplash and improve your range of motion.
Arthritis is a condition that causes pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints. Chiropractic adjustments can help improve range of motion and reduce pain in people with arthritis.
Scoliosis is a condition that causes the spine to curve to the side. This curve can lead to back pain, muscle tension, and stiffness. Chiropractic adjustments can help reduce the pain in the spine and improve symptoms.
