Chiropractic adjustments, also called manual manipulation, spinal manipulation, or chiropractic manipulation, provide a non-invasive, non-addictive treatment for aches, pains, and other health conditions. Chiropractic adjustments help treat lower back pain. This gentle treatment is often used to treat other ailments too. At Proficient Chiropractic in St. Louis and Overland, MO, we provide chiropractic care to patients seeking pain relief or alternative treatments for their ailments.
What are Chiropractic Adjustments
A chiropractic adjustment involves targeted, gentle thrusts that pressure the spinal joints helping realign the spinal column. During an adjustment, it is common to hear popping sounds, which is the sudden release of carbon dioxide, oxygen, and nitrogen from the joints. The release of the pressure helps relieve joint stress and is a relieving sensation.
Chiropractic adjustments help relieve the body of stress and help realign the spine so the body can properly function. Additionally, the aligned spine takes the pressure off joints, nerves, and tissue, which can cause chronic inflammation or pain.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
This holistic approach to treating pain, chronic conditions, and other medical concerns is a good alternative to prescription medication and invasive surgery. Typical benefits of chiropractic adjustment are minimizing migraines, providing relief for neck-related headaches, improving your posture and range of motion, and reducing osteoarthritis symptoms. Additionally, a chiropractic adjustment can treat minor neck and spine injuries like whiplash.
Aside from chiropractic care, we offer many other holistic treatment options. Our chiropractor will diagnose the root cause of your pain, discomfort, or health condition and develop a personalized chiropractic care plan. Additional chiropractic care treatment options may include manual manipulation, massage therapy, cold laser treatment, physical therapy, acupuncture, and TENS therapy.
