Conditions Treated by a Spinal Adjustment

Posted on: June 16, 2018

Spinal Adjustment

A spinal adjustment can have multiple benefits beyond relieving back, neck and shoulder pain. We can help ensure that nerve signals and blood flow freely by bringing the spine into alignment. We can also reduce inflammation and improve bodily function with our treatment methods. This means that other areas of the body can benefit from timely chiropractic care.

Conditions we can help to treat using a spinal adjustment

Patients often visit us for help with the following:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Ear infections
  • Sinus infections
  • Hip pain
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraines
  • Joint pain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Tingling or loss of sensation in the arms and legs

By completing a spinal adjustment and ensuring that the vertebrae are in the proper alignment, we are able to improve blood flow and have seen significant improvements in the above conditions. In some circumstances, an adjustment is all that is necessary for the patient to feel better. For example, patients who visit us complaining of pain and tingling in the legs may be suffering from compression of the sciatic nerve. In this situation, a spinal adjustment and decompression may be all that is necessary to solve the problem. In other cases, chiropractic techniques can also act as complementary care.

Chiropractic care can complement traditional medical care

Very often, patients will continue seeing their primary care physician or specialist while also receiving chiropractic care. The two can complement each other for the best opportunity to recover. For example, it may be necessary to visit a primary care doctor for antibiotics to treat a bad ear infection.

Afterward, visiting a chiropractor can help to alleviate pain and even reduce the likelihood that an ear infection will recur. Another example is fibromyalgia, which is typically treated using prescription medication. Prescription medication is often not sufficient for alleviating all the pain associated with the condition. Chiropractic treatments may be able to help.

The benefits of chiropractic care

A spinal adjustment is non-invasive and non-addictive. This is an all-natural therapy outside the body, so there are no risks of serious side effects or dependency issues like there are when taking pharmaceuticals. Since chiropractic can work independently or in combination with other treatments, all patients can benefit from chiropractic care.

Additionally, since this is non-invasive it is safe for children and the elderly when other invasive methods may not be. The biggest benefit to chiropractic care is that it works. Our patients generally report a reduction in their pain, reduction in discomfort, increase in mobility and an increase in their overall quality of life after they begin receiving regular treatment.

Experience the benefits of chiropractic care for yourself

We encourage you to call our office and schedule an appointment for an examination and spinal adjustment. While here, we will ask questions and conduct a dental exam to determine the extent of the challenges you are facing. We will then use touch therapy to manually adjust your spine and bring it into alignment.

This is a comfortable process that only takes a few minutes. Once the spinal adjustment is complete, you will be able to return to your day and should begin feeling better.
