Why Is a Chiropractic Adjustment Performed?
Chiropractic adjustments focus on easing symptoms that affect the musculoskeletal system. This can include relieving aches and pain, reducing muscle stiffness, and managing chronic conditions. Chiropractic care is designed to help you heal without the need of prescription medicine.
What Does a Chiropractic Adjustment Treat?
Chiropractic adjustments are effective in addressing various musculoskeletal conditions. Whether you're dealing with arthritis, frequent headaches, whiplash, neck pain, back pain, or sciatica, chiropractic adjustments can provide the relief.
Who Can Receive a Chiropractic Adjustment?
Chiropractic adjustments are suitable for individuals of all ages. While the most common age range for seeking chiropractic care tends to be people in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, people of all ages can benefit from this treatment.
What Happens During a Chiropractic Adjustment?
During a chiropractic adjustment, our chiropractor will utilize techniques that are tailored to your specific needs. You will lie face down on a chiropractic table that allows segments of your body to lift slightly higher, enabling our chiropractor to apply targeted pressure to the affected area. Using their hands or small instruments, our chiropractor will apply a quick and controlled force to the joint or gently stretch your joints beyond their normal range of motion, which helps align the vertebrae in your spine and release trapped gases.
What Is the Popping Sound During an Adjustment?
You may experience a popping or cracking sound during a chiropractic adjustment. This is normal and occurs as gases, such as carbon dioxide, oxygen, and nitrogen, are released from your joints. The gas release is a natural part of the adjustment and the sound is similar to the one that occurs when you crack your knuckles.
Does a Chiropractic Adjustment Hurt?
Chiropractic adjustments typically involve minimal to no pain, however, you may feel sensations similar to those experienced after a workout. Our chiropractor uses controlled force to create a cracking or popping noise as the gas leaves your joints. While this may sound uncomfortable, the session does not cause pain and you may experience immediate relief.
