Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic Adjustments Are Essential

Spinal joints that aren’t moving right can choke or irritate nearby nerves. Chiropractic adjustments add motion to these stuck joints, reducing nervous system disruption. Then, health has the best opportunity to return.

Chiropractor adjusting patient

Like lifting a heavy rock off your toe, our practice members often report a pleasant sense of release directly following their adjustments.

Many Techniques

Sometimes a specific, highly-accurate thrust is used. Or an instrument delivers carefully directed energy. Or a slow, constant pressure is used. Several areas may be adjusted, or just one. Sometimes a popping sound is heard.

Feels Great

Because we rely on adjustments to help your body “right itself”, we’re highly proficient.

Most practice members report a sense of well-being and ease. After all, if adjustments weren’t pleasant, our practice members wouldn’t return for the multiple visits needed to retrain their spine!

Everyone Benefits

Newborns, infants, children, seniors and even back surgery practice members can get adjusted. Naturally, adjustments are tailored to your size, age and particular health issue.

Find out for yourself by scheduling a no-obligation consultation to discuss your problem.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Are chiropractic adjustments safe?
    Yes. Many studies over the years have shown that Chiropractic care is very safe and effective. A New Zealand government study found that adjustments are “remarkably safe.” Chiropractic care enjoys an excellent track record. A thorough exam can identify the rare person for whom chiropractic care might be unsuited.
  • Will adjustments make my spine too loose?
    No. Only the spinal joints that are “locked up” receive adjustments. The occasional spinal joints that move too much, are passed over so weakened muscles and ligaments can stabilize and heal.
  • How many adjustments will I need?
    The number of adjustments varies with each practice member and their individual health goals. Many practice members sense some progress within a week or two of frequent visits. Visits are less often as your spine stabilizes. In difficult cases, complete healing can take months or even years.
  • Why would a newborn get adjusted?
    Even today’s “natural” childbirth methods can affect an infant’s spine. Colic, unusual crying, poor appetite or erratic sleeping habits can be signs of spinal distress. Adjustments are gentle. Knowing exactly where to adjust, no more pressure than you’d use to test the ripeness of a tomato is involved.
  • Can I adjust myself?
    No. Some people can make their joints “pop” but that’s not an adjustment! Adjustments are specific and take years to master. Even your chiropractor must consult a colleague to benefit from chiropractic care.
  • What does an adjustment feel like?
    Most practice members report a sense of well-being or a feeling of calmness. Since repeated adjustments are necessary, if adjustments didn’t feel good, practice members wouldn’t return to finish their care. Chiropractors are experts at making adjustments feel good.
  • Can practice members with osteoporosis get chiropractic care?
    Of course. When developing a care plan, your chiropractor considers the unique circumstances of each practice member. There are many ways to adjust the spine. The method selected will be best suited to your age, size and spinal problem.
  • Isn’t some back pain normal?
    Pain of any kind, at any age, is a sign that something isn’t right. Pain is the way your body signals that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. Since we can adapt, minor aches and pains are often shrugged off. While they may go away, if the underlying problem remains unattended, the problem can slowly worsen until it becomes more difficult and expensive to resolve.
  • Can I have chiropractic care after back surgery?
    Yes. Rest assured that we will avoid the surgically modified areas of your spine. However, surgery may produce compensation reactions either above or below the involved level. If necessary, these other areas will be the focus of your chiropractic care.
