How do adjustments work?
An adjustment is form of manual therapy performed by professionally trained Chiropractors, aimed to reducing pain and dysfunction. It involves applying a controlled and specific force to the spine, or other joints, by using the hands or an activator (clicking tool).
During a chiropractic adjustment, sometimes you may hear a harmless clicking or popping sound (this is harmless gas bubbles being released). In fact, this is often accompanied by a feeling of relief and relaxation.
As well as reducing pain, chiropractic adjustments can help to improve posture, reduce muscle tension, and enhance overall body function.
What are the benefits of an adjustment?
- Improve your joint mobility and muscle tension.
- Reduce nerve irritation from inflammation around joint problems.
- Restore the brain-body communication so nerves work at their best.
- Facilitate your body’s natural ability to heal and function optimally.
… keep you feeling, functioning and living well.
Whether you are seeking relief from back pain, headaches, or would like to continue living life to the fullest, Chiropractic care may be able to help you achieve your health and wellness goals.
What causes joint stiffness?
One common cause of interference to the nervous system is restrictions or misalignments of the spinal joints. These restrictions can occur due to physical trauma, poor posture, or repetitive movements and stress, and can interfere with the transmission of signals between the brain and the rest of the body. Joint restrictions can lead to a range of symptoms, including stiffness, reduced mobility, and also pain.
Through manual adjustments and other techniques, Chiropractors work to restore proper movement and function to the spine. This retunes the nerves that connect the brain to the body and focuses on reducing pain as well as improving overall health and well-being.
How is pain caused?
There are many causes of pain, often it is due to joints stiffening and not working properly, and surrounding nerves being irritated. When interference to the nervous system occurs, the body may experience a range of symptoms, including pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, and other issues.
Nerve irritation can cause dull achy, or sharp shooting pain and this can be felt along any part of the nerve. For instance, foot pain could be coming from the nerve in your back that runs down your leg – this could be ‘sciatica’.
As our nerves control our function and our healing, our Chiropractors aim to remove the interruptions to the nervous system, improving your health of your spine and to promote the body’s natural healing process.
