Chiropractic adjustment: What is it and what are its benefits?

A chiropractic adjustment is a completely noninvasive procedure during which a chiropractor applies manipulation to several areas of the body to facilitate pain relief and return the body to its optimal alignment. Though areas such as the hips a shoulders may adjusted, the primary area of interest in a chiropractic adjustment is the spine. There, the objective of chiropractic adjustment is to reduce subluxation (improper positioning of the vertebrae), with the goals of increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritability, and improving overall functionality. Benefits of chiropractic adjustment include:

  • Back and neck pain relief

  • Headache reduction

  • Bowel regularity

  • Improved mental clarity

  • Ear infection prevention

  • Reduced arthritis and joint pain

  • Effective scoliosis treatment

  • Asthmatic symptom relief

  • Blood pressure stabilization

  • Pregnancy pain mitigation

  • Improved organ function

  • Surgery prevention

Your adjustment: What to expect

During your chiropractic adjustment here at Effective Chiropractic, your chiropractor will perform an examination of your back, neck, and other target areas, testing for areas of discomfort or immobility. This is performed via a process called “motion palpitation,” during which your chiropractor feels in the vicinity of the tightness where the joints aren’t moving. Once target areas are located, your chiropractor will then perform adjustments by administering high-velocity, low-amplitude thrusts in the direction of restriction through the joint. The process is repeated along the length of the spine and may be used to relieve tightness in the shoulders, hips, and other joint locations, as well. In general, a chiropractic adjustment here at Effective Chiropractic process usually is completed in less than 30 minutes. Other therapies to assist in the process could add more time. Follow-up appointments may be scheduled, as necessary.
