At times, our bodies become misaligned, causing various health conditions, pain, and chronic discomfort. A chiropractic adjustment can help realign the body's spinal column, relieving pressure from joints, nerves, tendons, and muscles, which is often the root cause of many health conditions. If you're suffering from various ailments, seeing a chiropractor can provide you with the relief you need.

What is a chiropractic adjustment?
Also known as spinal manipulation, a chiropractic adjustment is a procedure performed by a licensed chiropractor who manually applies pressure to the back, focusing on specific areas to help realign the spine. Adjustments can help relieve pain, relax pinched nerves, and loosen tight muscles. In addition, spinal adjustment and other chiropractic care techniques can help damaged tissue heal.
Why see a chiropractor for an adjustment?
Chiropractic adjustments can help patients find relief from lower back pain, neck pain, and headaches. An adjustment can also help with various conditions, including neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, digestive issues, sleep disorders, and more.
What to expect when seeing a chiropractor?
During your appointment with the chiropractor, they will review your medical history and determine if you are a good candidate for a chiropractic adjustment. The chiropractor may also order diagnostic tests, including an X-ray, CT scan, or MRI scan, to get a closer look at the inside of your body. Depending on the results of the tests and your medical history, the chiropractor will develop a treatment plan, which may include chiropractic adjustments. The treatment plan will also indicate the frequency and duration of chiropractic care sessions needed to treat your ailments.
In addition to receiving chiropractic adjustments at a chiropractor's office, patients may also have other treatment methods included in their plans. Other chiropractic treatment options may include massage, heat and ice therapy, exercises, stretches, relaxation techniques, dietary supplements, or electrical muscle stimulation.
