Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, hands-on, spinal manipulation and alignment of the musculoskeletal system.
The chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which a trained specialist (chiropractor) uses a small hand or device to apply sudden and controlled force to the spinal joint. This method, also called spinal therapy, aims to improve the spine’s mobility and improve the physical function of the body.
Low back pain, neck pain, and headaches are the most common problems people look for to improve chiropractic adjustment.
Adjustment of chiropractic is safe if done by someone trained and authorized to provide chiropractic care. Significant complications linked with chiropractic adjustments are often uncommon but may include:
- Worsening of a herniated disk
- Strengthen the lower back muscles
- Some types of injuries after neck manipulation.
Do not seek chiropractic care if you have:
- Severe osteoporosis
- Stiffness or loss of strength in the arms or legs
- Spine cancer
- Increased Stroke risk
- Known bone defects in the upper neck
Your chiropractor will ask you questions about your medical history at the first visit and perform a physical examination with special attention to your spine. After that, your chiropractor may need a new test or examination, such as an X-ray.
During the normal chiropractic adjustment, Chiropractic Doctor of Trinity in Canada will put you in a special position to care for the affected area. Chiropractors use their team to apply sharp control force to a hand and push it beyond its usual range of motion. If your chiropractor moves your joints during treatment, you may hear a popping or cracking sound.
Correction of chiropractic can effectively treat low back pain, although most studies have shown little benefit – similar to the results of more traditional treatments. Some studies suggest that neck treatment may be effective for headaches and other spinal diseases, such as neck pain.
Not everyone responds to chiropractic adjustments. It depends a lot on your particular situation. If your symptoms do not improve after various weeks of treatments, the chiropractic adjustment is not the best option for you.
