What Are Chiropractic Adjustments?
Chiropractic adjustments are highly skilled spinal joint manipulations performed by licensed and board-certified chiropractors. Adjustments are generally done in the neck, mid-back, lower back, and pelvis. Though there are several variations, the basic adjustment involves a targeted force from a chiropractor's hands on a specific area of the spine. The chiropractor may use tables or hand held tools to assist with the adjusting.
Chiropractic adjustments often improve range of motion, pain, and other symptoms within a matter of minutes. In general, a series of adjustments over the course of several sessions will result in the most effective outcomes. One myth about chiropractic adjustments is that they must be "high grade" and elicit a "cracking" sound in the joint. While some adjustments are "high grade" and involve quick short movements, other adjustments involve just the lightest touch (with or without the sensation of "joint popping"). Both types affect healing in the underlying tissues by stimulating the central nervous system, releasing pain-relieving hormones, realigning spinal joints, reducing tissue tension, and alleviating muscle spasms.
Who Are Chiropractic Adjustments For?
In general, chiropractic adjustments are safe for most people. We use adjustments on everyone from young infants to seniors to women who are pregnant. Chiropractic adjustments are especially helpful for people with neck pain and back pain caused by an auto accident injury, sports injury, or personal injury.
Research shows that complications or adverse effects following chiropractic adjustments are extremely rare. Certain people may not be appropriate candidates for adjustments, including people with severe osteoporosis or people on blood thinners. Our experienced New York chiropractor, Dr. Kumar will thoroughly review your medical history to ensure your treatment plan is safe for you.
Conditions That May Benefit From Chiropractic Adjustments
Because chiropractic adjustments impact the central nervous system—which influences everything from your hormones to your digestive system—adjustments may benefit conditions, directly and indirectly, related to the spine!
For instance, chiropractic adjustments may help improve symptoms and impairments associated with whiplash, fibromyalgia, sciatica, tension headaches, and migraines. Our New York chiropractic team has also seen adjustments reduce signs and symptoms associated with colic, insomnia, asthma, and depression.
