Spinal Adjustment for Back Pain and Other Symptoms
A spinal adjustment refers to a manual, non-invasive procedure performed by an experienced chiropractor. During this procedure, the chiropractor gently manipulates the spine to improve its alignment and correct any number of spinal problems. By improving the alignment of the spine, it is possible to reduce pressure on nerve endings (such as the sciatic nerve), which can, in turn, relieve you of ongoing pain. Furthermore, spinal adjustments can encourage the body's own natural healing processes to take place by increase blood and oxygen flow throughout the body.
There are many conditions and symptoms we utilize spinal adjustments to treat, including:
- sciatic nerve pain
- herniated or bulging discs
- slip-and-fall accidents
- work and sport injuries
- headaches and migraines
What to Expect From Chiropractic Adjustment
If you're suffering from any of the above problems, we recommend you schedule an evaluation with our chiropractor so we can determine whether chiropractic adjustment is the right treatment for you. If you are a viable candidate for spinal adjustment, we will take the time to explain the procedure to you so you know what to expect from your session.
For starters, keep in mind that many of our patients need several sessions of treatment in order to maximize their results. Still, these sessions tend to be relatively short (around 30 minutes) so they don't need to interfere with your day.
One of the most common questions patients have about chiropractic adjustments is whether the procedure will hurt. The answer is no! Typically, you will feel a little pressure and you may even hear some popping noises as the chiropractor works on your spine. However, the procedure is painless and many of our patients find that it is actually quite relaxing.
How long it takes for you to experience improvement of your symptoms can vary from one patient to the next. Some patients report that they enjoy pain relief as soon as the first session is over with, whereas it may take a little longer for others. It really depends on the specific injury or condition from which you're suffering and your own physiology.
