Spinal Adjustments & Manipulation
Spinal Adjustements and Manipulation
The primary chiropractic therapy procedure for back pain is a chiropractic adjustment, often known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation.
Manipulation of the spine lowers joint pressure, reduces inflammation, and enhances nerve function. Since the ancient Greek Hippocrates detailed manipulative techniques in his writings in 1500 B.C., it has been a trusted type of treatment. Spinal manipulation is being utilized to treat allergies, menstrual cramps, and headaches, among other things.
How Does Spinal Manipulation Work?
Chiropractors employ well over 100 different types of adjustment techniques around the world. Some practitioners utilize force and twisting, while others use gentler tactics. These procedures are meant to restore or enhance joint function with the goals of lowering pain and eliminating joint inflammation, regardless of how they are conducted.
There is a systemic response from the muscular system to the central nervous system when vertebrae slip out of place. Our nerves, immune system, and intellect cannot work at their best without appropriate alignment and flow.
Overall, spinal adjustments and manipulations are a great method to maintain your body functioning at its best while avoiding pain. When the body is properly aligned, it can respond and perform as it was designed to.
Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. Today, we have highly-successful advanced technology that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery. We use a system that combines a machine with an exceptionally precise computer program for a treatment called spinal decompression.
Using this computer technology and the decompression machine, we are able to create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and pulls the herniated or bulging material back into the disc. The computer program is created and supervised by one of our highly trained staff. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine in rotation, which, over time, separates the vertebrae. This creates a vacuum-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc. This can not only clear up back pain, but also any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc will cause that pain to vanish.
Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about twenty minutes. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week, and are typically finished with treatment within eight weeks.
If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal decompression treatment plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, ask us if spinal decompression can help you.
