What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
The chiropractic adjustment is a gentle, yet dynamic thrust applied to a particular spinal joint in such a way as to generate movement in a specific direction. Chiropractic adjustments restore proper mechanics of the spine, enhancing joint function, improving range of motion, mobility, and preventing injury due to improper joint dynamics.
What happens when my symptoms have disappeared?
Symptoms often respond well to treatment and seem to disappear before total correction has occurred. The objective of treatment is to obtain full joint function, soft tissues, and neurological activity. Our team considers the job done when spinal and extremity motion is fully restored and not just when symptoms and pain have reduced. It is not uncommon for a patient to want to stop care when symptoms disappear. It is important to understand that until the muscle/joint dysfunction is fully corrected, there is still a substantial vulnerability for the symptoms to recur. As long as the dysfunctions continue to exist to some extent, it may undermine body function and health and may ultimately cause symptoms once again.
Sometimes degenerative and arthritic conditions of spinal joints are present, and thus certain conditions cannot be totally corrected. Yet chiropractic and physical therapy treatments can improve function and relieve discomfort, when administered on a regular basis.
How Often Will I Need Treatment?
It is important to remember that maintaining your health is an ongoing process. Your treatment recommendations are based on your specific needs and your unique history.
Chronic, long-term conditions may require intensive care for a number of weeks, followed by a gradual reduction to frequency of care. Acute, painful conditions may need to be handled in stages. The pain and inflammatory process is often initially treated with physical therapy modalities for a period of time. Following this treatment is often time several times per week, as your condition improves we will reduce your frequency accordingly. Milder conditions, of course, require a lesser frequency and a shorter duration of care.
