A spinal adjustment or manipulation, also called manual therapy, is a common pain management treatment method. The intention
- Back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Neck pain
- Disc injuries
- Improved fibromyalgia
When the spine is misaligned, it can cause numerous long-term complications. The vertebral joints and discs begin to deteriorate, causing limited movement and reduced function. The nervous system is also compromised and becomes dysfunctional. When there is a misalignment of the spine, the nerves become irritated and inflamed which can cause pain. A normal and functioning nervous system is essential to allow the body to effectively cope with any diseases or conditions affecting the body. The benefits of spinal manipulation include:
- Improving flexibility, therefore, improving the range of motion.
- Since this method is non-invasive, it may prevent the risk of having to undergo surgery.
- Spinal adjustments are a holistic treatment method; therefore, it reduces drug dependence.
Adjustments and manipulations can help with frequent joint pain, back pain, or headaches. With this treatment method, our chiropractor in Hicksville will begin by placing you in a specific position to properly treat the affected area. Then we apply controlled pressure, using hands, on the spine to help adjust the misaligned vertebrae. When the spinal adjustment is completed, the pressure on the nerves is removed, therefore improving the blood flow and relieving the surrounding muscles, reducing the pain.
