Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments
The spinal adjustment is the foundation of chiropractic treatment. Spinal adjustments are used successfully to treat a variety of different soft tissue disorders as well as a number of other health problems. Chiropractic doctors are the only health care professionals trained to deliver the chiropractic spinal adjustment.
Spinal adjustments or spinal manipulation is the process of applying a quick but gentle pressure to “subluxated” vertebrae in a corrective manner. The adjustments are not and should not be painful. In fact, most patients at our St Paul Minnesota Chiropractor office look forward to their chiropractic adjustments as they usually provide immediate relief from discomfort and increase one’s sense of well being. Many years of study and practice are necessary to acquire the skills of providing an effective and safe spinal adjustment. Research has shown spinal adjustments to be the most effective treatment in numerous conditions including back pain.
This is because spinal adjustments correct many of the structural, biomechanical and neurological abnormalities of the spine which cause or contribute to a high number of back, neck and other non-spinal ailments.
Chiropractic Care offers a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct these misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body to heal naturally. Chiropractic doesn’t use drugs or surgery. Instead, a chiropractic spinal adjustment is the application of a precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment—corrects the misalignment, permitting normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to recuperate on its own.
