Chiropractic adjustments relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. It has been a trusted form of treatment since the ancient Greek Hippocrates documented manipulative techniques in his writings back in 1500 B.C. Today, chiropractic adjustments help the body adapt to all kinds of stressors and patients may experience relief from issues such as allergies, menstrual cramps, digestive concerns, numbness and tingling in the limbs, sleep troubles, headaches, and so much more!
How Does An Adjustment Work?
There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Some practitioners may use a quick force, while other techniques are more gentle. Regardless of how they are performed, these techniques are intended to restore nervous system function, improve joint alignment/movement, and allow for greater overall quality of life.
When vertebrae shift out of place, there is an overall systemic response from the muscular system to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow, our nerves, our immune system, and our minds cannot function at their highest peak.
Overall, spinal adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level without any discomfort. When the body is adequately aligned, it becomes able to respond and perform as it was built to do.
