Chiropractic adjustments are a popular treatment for many conditions available at Lower Cape Chiropractic in Orleans, MA. What exactly is a chiropractic adjustment, and what can it do for you? A chiropractic adjustment uses pressure or thrusts to manipulate the spine and joints. This can help 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 Do Chiropractic Adjustments Work?
There are many different chiropractic care techniques chiropractors use to adjust the spine. The most common method is the spinal adjustment. This involves using pressure and thrusts to move the joints and spine into proper alignment. The chiropractor will use his hands, elbows, or a small device to apply the pressure or thrusts.
You may hear a popping noise during the adjustment. This 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 done 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:
1. Neck Pain
Neck injuries cause a lot of pain and can limit your range of motion. Chiropractic adjustments can help in neck pain treatment by relieving pain and improving range of motion.
2. Back Pain
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 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 can lead to back pain, muscle tension, and stiffness. Chiropractic adjustments can help reduce the curve in the spine and improve symptoms.
