Chiropractic is a branch of health care dealing primarily with musculoskeletal system and nervous system disorders and their impact on overall health and wellness. People typically seek chiropractic care to address back pain, neck discomfort, headaches, and joint pain in the arms and legs.
Also referred to as chiropractic adjustment, manipulation of the spine is the most commonly performed chiropractic procedure. Spinal manipulation involves the application of gentle, controlled force to restore mobility to a joint thatʼs been injured.
Treating Inflammation & Pain:
Causes of joint damage include one-time activities such as incorrectly lifting a heavy item. It may also be caused by repetitive activities, such as operating with poor posture while sitting. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain and diminished function.
Your chiropractor may manipulate the impacted joint and tissues to correct misalignment, alleviate inflammation and pain, renew joint function and improve range of motion to allow damaged tissues to heal.
Why Do Joint sometimes Pop during Chiropractic?
That popping sound you hear when you flex your knuckles or undergo chiropractic manipulation is normal. The sound occurs when a gas bubble is released between the joints as a result of a pressure change within the joint.
Advice for Exercises & Lifestyle:
Chiropractorʼs unique and extensive training also allows them to advise you about helpful exercises to restore function and comfort, improvements in diet or nutrition, lifestyle changes and other therapeutic techniques. Your chiropractor will advise you when therapy should be combined with other medical treatments to fully address your needs.
