What is a chiropractic adjustment?
When vertebrae are misaligned, they can place pressure on nerves, causing pain and discomfort. To alleviate this pain and to restore flexibility, a trained chiropractor applies specific and controlled force in a specific way to restore mobility to the joints. This will alleviate pain and muscle tightness and allow your tissues to heal.
Does a chiropractic adjustment hurt?
When working with our trained chiropractic doctor, chiropractic adjustments rarely cause any discomfort. All force is highly controlled, minimal and gentle. Most patients feel immediate relief from any prior pain they were experiencing. Slight muscle soreness can result from a chiropractic adjustment that is similar to what you experience from starting a new exercise program. Drinking plenty of water, light stretching and using an ice pack can ease any discomfort.
Are chiropractic adjustments safe?
When performed by a licensed chiropractor, adjustments are extremely safe. Chiropractic care is widely recognized as one of the safest, non-invasive therapies available to treat back and neck problems.
What is that popping you hear during an adjustment?
The sound of popping is both safe and completely normal. When adjustments are made by a qualified chiropractic doctor to your spine, tiny pockets of air are released, causing that familiar “pop” sound.
Is chiropractic care actually effective?
Chiropractic adjustments allows you to address your discomfort without the dangerous use of medications. With safe and painless adjustments, the symptoms and pain of misalignment can be abated and reversed. We treat the causes of your pain rather than the symptoms, restoring your body’s function and leaving you to resume a healthy and happy lifestyle.
