The chiropractic spinal adjustment is the primary chiropractic treatment modality. Spinal adjustments restore physiological joint motion, reduce pain, retard the progression of degeneration, and break neurological engrams. It has been a trusted form of treatment since the ancient Greek Hippocrates documented manipulative techniques in his writings back in 1500 B.C.
Spinal adjustments are utilized to treat back pain, neck pain, headaches, as well as repair, restore, and maintain an optimum state of health and well-being.
How Does Spinal Manipulation Work?
There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Regardless of how they are performed, these techniques are intended to restore or enhance joint function with the objectives of reducing pain and resolving joint inflammation.
When vertebrae shift out of place, there is an overall systemic response from the muscular system to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow, our nerves, our immune system, and our minds cannot function at their highest peak.
Overall, spinal adjustments and manipulations are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level without any discomfort. When the body is adequately aligned, it becomes able to respond and perform as it was built to do.
