What Does Chiropractic Adjustment Do To Your Anatomy

Chiropractic adjustments are a drug free approach towards healing the body. Spinal adjustments as well as joint and soft tissue manipulations are a major part of the treatment. Chiropractic care is based on the belief that the body has an inherent power of healing itself without drugs and surgery. Let’s take a look at what changes chiropractic care brings about to one’s anatomy.

• Stimulates The Muscles, Nerves And Skeletal System

The immediate benefits of chiropractic adjustments are less pain, increased range of motion in the joints and decrease in muscle tension. Chiropractic treatment aims to place the body in such a position that it can heal on its own. The adjustments reduce stress on the immune system enabling the body to tackle diseases. The spinal adjustments and manipulations used in chiropractic treatment stimulate the muscles, nerves and the entire skeletal system.

• Alignment Of The Spine

The main focus of chiropractic care is alignment of the spine. An aligned spine ensures proper functioning of the nervous system which in turn has positive effects on every cell and organ of the body. Misalignment of the spine can be caused by an accident, injury, poor posture or congenital alignment problems. This leads to impairment of nerve signals which in turn causes headaches, numbness, weakness in the limbs, etc. Pinpoint adjustments are made to specific regions in the spine, relieving nerve pressure and muscle strain.

• Releases Pressure In The Upper Back And Neck Muscles


Pain caused due to tightness in the upper back and neck muscles can be relieved with these adjustments by reducing the pressure in the neck and upper back and increasing blood flow to the brain. People suffering from tension headaches can immensely benefit from the practice.

• Reduction Of Vertebral Subluxations

Chiropractic adjustments help in reducing vertebral subluxation. Subluxations lead to compression and irritation of spinal joints and nerves. Spinal adjustments help by reducing destructive nerve compressions. This leads to a significant improvement in the health and quality of life.

• Posture Improvement

Timely chiropractic adjustments bring about positive changes in one’s posture. They correct issues such as uneven shoulders, uneven leg length, an asymmetrical rib cage, tendency to lean towards one side more than the other etc. The adjustments along with muscular rehabilitation prevent the progression of such conditions.

• Promotes A Stronger Nervous System

Significant changes are noted in the peripheral and central nervous system after chiropractic adjustments. The adjustments affect the thalamus and descending central pain pathways. This reduces pain sensitivity in multiple areas.
