Adjustments & Manipulation
When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can’t function at our peak and can affect you in the following ways:
- Low back pain
- Upper back pain
- Neck pain
- Loss of mobility
- Decreased range of motion
An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like you’re cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.
Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. Whether you are suffering from upper or low back pain, loss of mobility or range of motion; when the body is in alignment, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to.
