What is an adjustment?
A chiropractor gives an adjustment, or spinal manipulation, by using a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is subluxated, locked up, or not moving properly. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is to eliminate pain along with interference to the nervous system, improving spinal function and overall health.
Are adjustments safe?
Yes. Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest treatments available for neuromusculoskeletal complaints. It is the result of a conservative and natural approach to health that tries to avoids invasive procedures and prescription drugs.
How should I feel after an adjustment?
Reactions following a chiropractic adjustment vary greatly from person to person. Some patients report an immediate feeling of improved well-being. Most people feel a significant improvement the next day. Occasionally patients feel a slight aching or soreness in their spinal joints or muscles, similar to feeling sore after an exercise workout. If you have questions about your care, do not hesitate to call our office to speak with your doctor.
Can I see a chiropractor if I am pregnant?
Yes. Chiropractic is safe and gentle during any stage of life, including pregnancy. Adjusting methods are always adapted to patient size, weight, age and condition of health.
