Chiropractic adjustments are a common treatment used for back and neck pain. They are a safe and effective way to relieve pain and improve function. Our chiropractors at Indian Valley Chiropractic in Telford are highly trained and experienced in performing a variety of chiropractic techniques, including chiropractic adjustments.
What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is a precise, gentle thrust delivered to a joint in the spine or other areas of the body. The purpose of the adjustment is to improve function and relieve pain. It is important to note that chiropractic adjustments are not the same as cracking your back. The adjustment is a highly skilled and precise movement delivered by our chiropractors.
Conditions Treated with Chiropractic Adjustments
Chiropractic adjustments can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including:
Your back is made up of bones, muscles, and ligaments. These structures support your body and allow you to move freely. However, when one of these structures is out of alignment, it can cause pain. Chiropractic adjustments can help realign the spine and relieve back pain.
Neck pain is a common problem caused by various factors, including poor posture, muscle strain, and injuries. Chiropractic adjustments are a safe and effective way to relieve neck pain and improve function.
Headaches can be caused by muscle tension, misalignments in the spine, and other factors. Chiropractic adjustments relieve tension headaches and migraines by relieving pressure on the nerves and muscles of the head and neck.
Sciatica is a condition that causes pain along the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down the legs. Sciatica can be caused by a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, and other conditions. Chiropractic adjustments can relieve sciatica pain by relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve.
Arthritis is a condition that causes inflammation in the joints. It can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling. Chiropractic adjustments reduce arthritis pain by improving joint function and relieving nerve pressure.
Autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, can cause pain and inflammation throughout the body. While there are no cures for autoimmune diseases, with proper management, they can become less problematic. Chiropractic adjustments help people with autoimmune diseases manage their pain by improving function and nerve communication. We also counsel patients on lifestyle changes and nutritional supplements to help them manage their autoimmune condition.
During pregnancy, the weight of the baby and the changes in the body can cause pain in the back, neck, and hips. Chiropractic adjustments can help you to have a happy and pain-free pregnancy.
