At CORE Health Centers, we utilize different techniques and methods for performing chiropractic adjustments. One of those techniques is the Manual Adjustment Chiropractic Technique, which is a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust, which is a swift, short movement to encourage proper vertebral alignment. The Manual Adjustment involves using the hands to flex, mobilize, and/or adjust a spinal joint in order to correct any abnormalities in the joint and relieve pain, stiffness, swelling, or other symptoms. The reason CORE Health Centers’ chiropractors will use manual adjustment, is to attempt to correct the function, motion, or alignment of one or more of your vertebrae. The misalignment in the joints of your spine is called subluxation. When your vertebrae becomes misaligned, exert pressure is then being pushed on the surrounding nerves. This can result in tingling, stiffness, weakness, and pain throughout the back, shoulders, neck, arms, legs, and anywhere else on the body. By using manual adjustments, CORE Health Centers’ chiropractors can realigning the problematic vertebrae and help to put these symptoms to rest.
What are Manual Adjustments?
Chiropractic manual adjustments is the treatment most people think of chiropractors performing. The chiropractor very specifically locates the source of joint pain and lack of joint movement between two bones. With a highly trained and experienced light thrust, one joint is pushed past another to open up the joint space. A clicking or popping sound is often produced when the joint is opened and “unstuck.” The ultimate goal of a chiropractic manual adjustment is to restore the nerve flow so the body can resume its optimal performance. The manual adjustment technique helps by removing the nerve interference by repositioning the misalignment bones.
Are Manual Adjustments Safe?
Manual adjustments is a very safe and effective procedure for neck aches and pains. Millions of manual adjustments are performed every day by chiropractors across the nation without any incidents. In fact, numerous studies have shown the effectiveness and safety of chiropractic manual adjustments. There have also been numerous healthcare studies that have shown that manual adjustments provided early in treatment is the most cost effective therapy for neck and back pain. Some patients experience minor stiffness or aches in the days after their appointment while the spine adjusts to the new alignment, but manual adjustments are often an effective treatment for acute lower back pain, neck pain, and other common aches and pains.
