How is a Chiropractic Adjustment Performed?

Chiropractic ca Chiropractic Adjustment in Kelso WA | 360-636-2636 | Family Chiropractic re focuses on the health of your neuromusculoskeletal system, which includes your spine, joints and muscles groups. A technique known as, “chiropractic adjustment” or “manual manipulation,” is utilized by chiropractors to treat subluxation, which a term referring to a partially or completely dislocated joint or vertebra. This technique can improve overall function and range of motion and decrease chronic pain associated with the subluxation.

Prior to a chiropractic adjustment, your chiropractor will ask about your current state of health and whether you are experiencing any pain or discomfort. You may also be asked to take x-rays prior to proceeding with the chiropractic adjustment. After a full picture of your current state of health has been determined, the chiropractor will then make an educated decision as to where manipulation is needed and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure you achieve lasting benefits from your adjustments. Once your plan has been explained to you, your chiropractor will describe how a chiropractic adjustment is performed and what you can expect to hear during the manipulation. This chiropractic technique may involve one or more quick, forceful thrusts applied to and around the site of the dislocation to realign the joint or vertebra. As the action is performed, you may hear popping and cracking, which is the relieving of gases that have built-up in the joint space. If you do not hear any sounds, it may indicate that the muscles surrounding the joint are too tight to allow effective manipulation. After the treatment is complete, you may experience short-lived muscle soreness, aching and spasms, which is common after a chiropractic adjustment.

A chiropractic adjustment must be performed by a highly trained and experienced licensed chiropractor as improper adjustments can cause lasting discomfort and possible injury. At Family Chiropractic, your safety and comfort are our first priority, which is why our chiropractic team at Family Chiropractic Care is consistently evaluated for performance to ensure you are receiving superior professional care in a welcoming environment.
