A chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation, is a specialized non-invasive procedure performed to treat a wide range of health conditions. It involves applying controlled and sudden pressure to a vertebral joint with the help of fingers or specific chiropractic equipment. The treatment aims at restoring structural alignment and overall physical functioning of the body.

Chiropractic adjustments are mainly based on three principles:

  • The body has a natural ability to heal itself.
  • All the components of the body’s structure (bones, nerves, ligaments etc.) are interconnected.
  • Gently manipulating the spine helps to maintain body’s structure and function to further promote self-healing.

Benefits Of Chiropractic Adjustments

  • Eliminate Pain: The body undergoes a lot of stress due to a physically demanding job, intense workout or rigorous daily routine. As a result, people usually suffer from various musculoskeletal dysfunctions that can cause severe pain, if not treated in time. Chiropractic adjustments are specifically targeted at eliminating stress from the core and providing complete relief from pain.
  • Restore Joint Motion: As a chiropractor manipulates the spine, it relaxes the muscles, thus restoring the joints original range of motion. Chiropractic adjustments can help to reinstate functioning in the back, neck, shoulder, hips, knees and many other parts of the body.
  • Better Body Functioning: Besides improving the musculoskeletal functioning, spinal adjustments also play a significant role in enhancing overall well-being. It helps to increase the flow of oxygen and blood, reduce muscle spasms, control the level of lactic acid and ensure balanced nutrients throughout the body to ensure a faster recovery.
  • Relieve Stress: A chiropractic adjustment involves manipulating the spine, which is responsible for transmitting stress signals from the brain to various body parts. As a result, it relieves the associated symptoms of stress such as muscle tension, high blood pressure and sleeping issues while assisting your body in returning to a relaxed state.
