How Does Chiropractic
Following an initial physical evaluation, your chiropractor may begin your therapy with a series of chiropractic adjustments. While different types of adjustments will vary, chiropractic care is based on a series of hands-on adjustments that work to realign your musculoskeletal system back into its proper positioning. Injuries, poor posture, or just the wear and tear of daily life can shift your body out of its natural alignment. But with chiropractic adjustments realigning your body, you can experience a range of health benefits. Chiropractic adjustments can effectively address mobility issues and provide pain relief throughout the body.
During a chiropractic adjustment, your chiropractor will apply pressure to your back, shoulder, neck, or any other joint area that is causing pain or may be out of alignment. Your chiropractor will apply quick and firm pressure to shift your musculoskeletal system, encouraging it to return to its proper positioning.
Following an adjustment, patients often feel quick pain relief and may feel like they’re standing up a little bit straighter. Similar to many other types of care, it’s important to note that multiple visits will often improve your overall recovery and results. That’s why your chiropractor may recommend that you come back within a few days to receive another adjustment.
