What is a spinal adjustment?
A spinal adjustment refers to the process of manipulating the spine in order to bring the body back into its proper alignment. Also known as a chiropractic adjustment, as the procedure should only be performed by an experienced chiropractor, spinal adjustment requires a chiropractor to use their hands or specially made instruments to provide a sudden force to the spinal joint. Correct spinal alignment is necessary for the body to properly function, as it helps increase range of motion, reduce nerve irritability and overall improve the body’s ability to physically function.
Signs that warrant spinal adjustments
There are many different signs and symptoms that someone can experience that will warrant a trip to a chiropractor's office for a series of spinal adjustments, with the following list including the most common. Some patients may need only three or four adjustments, while others may need 10 to 12.
How a chiropractor performs spinal adjustments
Spinal adjustments utilize touch therapy. The process of performing spinal adjustments requires a chiropractor to put pressure on specific locations near the vertebrae that allow them to move back into their proper position. Chiropractors do this by using their hands to feel along the spine to determine which vertebrae are not currently in their proper position. They will then use their hands or a special tool to apply just the right amount of pressure to the area, which puts the vertebrae back into their proper position within a matter of seconds.
The goal is to bring the spine back into its full and natural alignment, which allows the nerves to flow through the spine without being disrupted.
