A chiropractic adjustment, sometimes referred to as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is the primary chiropractic treatment method.
Spinal adjustments relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. Spinal manipulation has been a trusted form of treatment since the ancient Greek Hippocrates documented manipulative techniques in his writings back in 1500 B.C. Today, chiropractic adjustive care is used to work with such diverse problems as allergies, menstrual cramps and headaches in addition to back and neck problems.
How Does Spinal Adjusting Work?
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. The brain and the body must communicate back and forth for optimal health.
Overall, spinal adjustments 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.
