Some chiropractors also refer to a chiropractic adjustment as a spinal adjustment, spinal manipulation or manual manipulation. These terms are used interchangeably to describe the technique of performing forceful, quick thrusts to specific vertebra to treat vertebral subluxation. This type of subluxation is a misalignment of vertebrae, which results in back pain and/or pain in other areas of the musculoskeletal system.

Benefits of a Chiropractic Adjustment

Those clients new to chiropractic care tend to believe that either a chiropractic adjustment is a one-time solution to chronic back pain or has no real medical advantages. In fact, neither of those assumptions is correct. Properly performed chiropractic adjustments hold many benefits for clients that are committed to adhering to a treatment plan.

  • Non-invasive, medication-free pain relief: While immediate pain relief from discomfort can come from one treatment, your Family Chiropractic Care team will create a personalized treatment plan that will include additional chiropractic adjustments over a specified period of time to provide the long-term, non-invasive and medication-free pain relief you seek.
  • Increased range of motion: Without having the benefit of full range of motion, simple actions such as leaning over a table or bending down to remove an item from a cabinet can be arduous due to misaligned vertebrae and accompanying tense muscles. Chiropractic adjustments, as part of a treatment plan, can increase a client’s range of motion.  
  • Improved posture: If you suffer from poor posture, you may experience neck, shoulder and back pain and ultimately face disfigurement of your spine and shoulders. Chiropractic adjustments release built up gases in the joint spaces and correct spinal misalignment, which promotes good posture.
