One of the most common techniques in chiropractic care is spinal adjustment. While the term may sound daunting, patients have nothing to worry about. Spinal adjustment is used to realign the spine and relieve any back pain or stiffness. At Urbandale Chiropractic in Urbandale, IA, our team can diagnose and treat your back pain. Our chiropractors, Dr. Shad England and Dr. Jody England, are experts in spinal adjustment and can answer any questions you may have before starting your journey to wellness.
Why Spinal Adjustment?
The human spine contains vertebrae, discs, joints, and muscles that give your spine mobility. Since your spine is at the center of many bodily movements and functions, it puts in a lot of work. Your spine can often become irritated and achy, causing a variety of problems. When your spine is not balanced, it can affect your entire body and cause back and neck pain. Spinal adjustments are used to alleviate pain and improve your bodily functions.
How Does It Work?
Many common remedies for back pain include over-the-counter or prescription medications. While these medicines may alleviate your symptoms, they will not completely eliminate your problem. Many medications also have serious side effects and can be addictive. Chiropractic care is a safe alternative to medications. Our chiropractors not only address your symptoms, but work to find the root of your pain.
A spinal adjustment helps restore movement and decrease your chances of future injuries or pain. It can be used to treat lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, and a number of other conditions. The technique restores your spine’s alignment, which alleviates pain.
Our chiropractors perform spinal adjustments by applying force to your spinal joints. They focus on different areas based on where your pain is. Our doctors use their hands to apply a sudden but controlled force to your different spinal components, essentially shifting them back into place.
Spinal adjustments can relieve your pain and gradually restore spinal motion and nerve function. Most patients need multiple spinal adjustments for longer lasting results. Our chiropractors can work with you to create a personalized treatment plan.
Is It Safe?
A spinal adjustment is a natural, safe and gentle technique. It is a non-invasive way to treat back pain, as opposed to surgery and medication. With a normal spinal alignment, your body can move freely without pain. Spinal adjustments are not painful, but may cause minor soreness.
