Chiropractic adjustments are the main treatment method for reducing and eliminating back pain. Other terms for this type of treatment are chiropractic manipulation, spinal manipulation, spinal adjustments, or manual manipulation. It is truly amazing how many different conditions a spinal adjustment can help alleviate or eliminate altogether. From headaches, neck pain, and menstrual cramps, to the full range of upper and lower back pain, spinal manipulation has been documented as an effective form of treatment. Hippocrates, a famous ancient Greek physician, actually wrote about spinal manipulation as far back as 1500 B.C. Today, it is still a trusted form of treatment for resolving many different health issues.
How Does Spinal Manipulation Work?
Regular spinal adjustments are a great way to ensure the body continues to function at its top performance levels. Everything from our nerves and circulation, to our immune system and brain function, are reliant on overall spinal health. Even the slightest misalignment of vertebrae can effect joint function, inflammation, and slow our bodies response to illnesses.
There are over one hundred different kinds of spinal adjustment techniques that are currently implemented around the world. Some forms of manipulations include small quick movements, while others are extremely gentle. Most forms of chiropractic adjustments are intended to reduce pain and restore joint function, as well as reduce inflammation, increase circulation, and improve range of motion.
