There are so many benefits to chiropractic adjustments. If you are experiencing pain, or simply want help to function at your best, a chiropractic adjustment may be the answer you are looking for. At Salina Chiropractic, in Salina, KS, we offer chiropractic care, including chiropractic adjustments.
What Is Chiropractic Adjustment?
Chiropractic adjustments are performed by chiropractors. They are also known as a Doctor of Chiropractic, or DC.
These adjustments often focus on correcting misalignments in the spine. However, adjustments can be performed on other joints in the body, from your ankles to your neck.
Our chiropractor will use gentle thrusts and pressure to gently move joints back into the proper position. This non-invasive treatment can help provide a number of health benefits. Chiropractic care is often considered a part of functional medicine. Functional medicine views the patient as a whole. Instead of treating symptoms, we seek to treat the underlying cause of the problem.
Chiropractic Adjustment for Pain Relief
Most people go to a chiropractor because they are experiencing pain. Spinal manipulation can help relieve back pain, neck pain, headaches, and sciatica. Adjustments can also help relieve pain in other areas. If you are experiencing pain in your muscles, knees, hips, wrist, elbows, or ankles, our chiropractor can help.
Misalignment can be the underlying cause, or a contributing factor, for these conditions. Chiropractic adjustment can help correct these misalignments, which can help relieve your pain.
The Potential Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Pain relief is not the only benefit of chiropractic care. When your body is in proper alignment, it may be able to function better. Proper alignment can help improve blood flow, nervous system function, your immune system, and flexibility.
Some patients believe that their energy levels and sleep quality also improve with chiropractic adjustment.
What to Expect at Your First Visit
If you've never visited a chiropractor before, you may be wondering what it's like to get an adjustment. Our chiropractor will start with a physical exam of the affected area. He will also take the time to talk to you about your medical history, lifestyle, and any concerns or symptoms you may have.
Next, he may give you your first chiropractic adjustment. You'll probably lay on a chiropractic table while our chiropractor gently manipulates any misaligned joints with light pressure and thrusts.
Your chiropractor may also recommend other chiropractic treatments, depending on your conditions and health goals. These can include therapeutic exercises, spinal decompression, and lifestyle advice.
