Should You See A Chiropractor?
The most common therapeutic procedure performed by chiropractors is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become restricted in their movement because of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or from repetitive stresses, such as sitting with a poor spinal posture for a long time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that may cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the patient. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility and alleviates pain and muscle tightness allowing tissues to heal.
Goals for Our Chiropractic Patients:
- Reduce joint restrictions
