One of the primary spinal rehabilitative therapy techniques used by CORE Health Centers is spinal adjustment, also known as a chiropractic adjustment. After going over the results of your tests from the initial examination, CORE Health Centers will begin your chiropractic care, which includes chiropractic adjustments. A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is a common therapeutic treatment for back pain, lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and hip pain. The goal of such chiropractic adjustment is to reduce vertebral subluxation and return the spine to a more natural state of health. CORE Health Centers use many chiropractic adjustment techniques in our office, which allows us to provide many options for our patients.
A chiropractic adjustment refers to a chiropractor applying manipulation to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. Chiropractic adjustment is a highly refined skill acquired during years of intensive training. To do that, CORE Health Centers’ chiropractor will apply pressure to the bone and unlock, or free, them from their improper position. The bone will then be free to align itself correctly. When a patient has a subluxation, chiropractic adjustment can be used to correct the misalignment, which in turn helps enhance joint mobility, reduce pain, reduce muscle spasm, and reduce nerve irritation or impingement. During chiropractic adjustment treatments, a relieving sensation is felt most of the time, although minor discomfort has been reported if the surrounding muscles are in spasm or the patient tenses up during this chiropractic care.
Furthermore, the procedure rarely causes discomfort or pain. In fact, many patients report a sense of immediate relief associated with the chiropractic adjustment and often note positive changes in their symptoms shortly after receiving care. If discomfort is experienced it is typically minor and resolves within a matter of days. To achieve optimal results patients may receive several adjustments over multiple chiropractic visits. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, the care plan may also include massage and functional restoration exercises.
