Chiropractic Adjustments

Understanding the Healing Power of Chiropractic

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

What is a subluxation?

Are chiropractic adjustments safe?

Do adjustments hurt?

 

Many patients imagine that they have tried everything.

True, they have used many remedies, but they have never had the cause of their infirmity adjusted. - D.D. Palmer

 

How long before I feel better?

 


Why do I need adjustments if I'm not in pain?

It's important for you to know that spinal dysfunction always happens before back pain or neck pain, making most subluxations "silent".

Your body also has a natural way of altering your mechanics to avoid pain when dysfunction is present, which is a smart move in the short term, but not good if you don't eventually correct the dysfunction.

Regular assessments of your spinal biomechanics and nervous system function by a chiropractor can help detect, maintain and prevent dysfunction throughout your body.

 

How can adjustments help with problems outside of the spine?

What is the "popping" sound I sometimes hear during my adjustments?

Sometimes when I move, I hear "popping" sounds from my spine. Is this the same as an adjustment?

Broad manipulations during movement may feel good, but it isn't the same as spinal correction. Your chiropractor is specifically trained to check and adjust only the necessary spinal segments during your visit. The safest way to gain the benefits of chiropractic is the leave it to the trained professionals.
