chiropractic adjustment and spinal adjustment are popular terms used by most chiropractors and osteopaths to describe their methods of spinal manipulation, and some neuromusculoskeletal therapists, who also use the word adjustment. The practice involves the use of some form of manual therapy that manipulates the spine to promote health and well-being. Chiropractic adjustments and spinal adjustments are also known as chiropractic treatments. A chiropractor will use a series of different tools to help manipulate the spine and help restore its alignment, based on the belief that our spinal systems maintain a very important relationship with our nervous system. If this nervous system is not in proper working order, we can experience a whole host of symptoms and problems, from headaches, insomnia, chronic pain, and more, and it can even affect our ability to think and reason properly.
One example of chiropractic treatment is the use of ultrasound or laser technology to help treat conditions such as scoliosis, an irregularly shaped vertebra that can cause back pain or a weakness in the legs. The use of spinal adjustments and other tools is designed to strengthen the back and realign the vertebrae, which helps alleviate pain, improve posture and balance, and to promote overall bodily health. Osteopathy, the practice of applying force to the bones, is also used in chiropractic treatment, but osteopathy deals more with the physical structure of the body rather than the symptoms that come up as a result of a poor alignment.
One of the main principles of chiropractic adjustment is that the spine is a network of space containing tens of thousands of small mechanical receptors. Each mechanical receptor is connected to the spinal cord through junctions, and these links are called “subluxations”. When a subluxation is present, the spinal cord is no longer able to function normally because some of its communication links have been disrupted. A chiropractor usually uses diagnostic techniques to determine which subluxation is present and then he or she will apply manual stimulation to the affected area to help correct it.
In addition to subluxations, there are also other factors that can cause misalignment, and sometimes these factors are outside of the chiropractic adjustment room. If you are working in a job where you are constantly exposed to a variety of dangerous objects or are involved in certain strenuous activity that can cause injury to your neck, shoulders, or hips, then the danger zone for your spine is going to be much larger. In order to reach your potential, your spine must maintain a consistent biological and physical range of motion. If you are not always moving your joints and muscular components as needed, then your muscular and neurological responses are less than optimal.
To keep your spine in optimal functional condition, your chiropractic care plan will include diagnostic exercises, which can help you to restore your spine to its physiological range of motion. In some cases, a chiropractic adjustment may be accompanied by other treatment plans. For example, some doctors will recommend a stretching protocol to help alleviate stiffness from the adjustments. Other doctors and chiropractic specialists may use ultrasound therapy, electrical stimulation, or ultrasound therapy.
One of the main goals of chiropractic care is to correct the problem underlying the cause of the pain. In most cases, this cause is misalignment of the vertebrae, but there are some rarer causes of this condition, which can result in chronic pain. A chiropractor will have a series of tests to determine which cause is causing your pain. Some common ailments which can cause chronic pain or scoliosis include: scoliosis, nerve root problems, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, and pregnancy. By correcting the underlying cause of your condition, chiropractic adjustment can help relieve the pain associated with these conditions.
