A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is the primary chiropractic treatment method for neck and back pain.
Spinal manipulation relieves pressure on joints, reduces inflammation, and improves nerve function. When the spine is in alignment, pain and pressure are alleviated and function becomes optimal. Chiropractic adjustments remove nerve interference, thereby assisting the body's innate healing power.
How Does Spinal Manipulation Work?
When vertebrae shift out of place, there is an overall systemic response from the muscular system to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow, our nerves, our immune system, and our minds cannot function at their highest peak.
Overall, spinal adjustments and manipulations are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level without any discomfort. When the body is adequately aligned, it becomes able to respond and perform as it was built to do.
