Guide to Chiropractic Adjustments

Did you know that many cases of chronic pain and illness are related to an issue within your spine? Or that chiropractic adjustments can improve your overall quality of life? Learn more about how in the guide below from Dr. Maycock at Chiropractic Wellness Center in Gillette, WY.

Understanding the Spinal Column

Your spinal column – from the lower back to the head – is an intricate system made up of bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and spinal discs. And each of these components helps you move and stay upright each day.

In the midst of the spinal column is the spinal cord. This is the structure that ensures the nerve signals travel properly between the brain and the rest of your body so that everything functions as it should.

As there are so many essential components within the spinal column, keeping it properly aligned is critical. A misalignment can cause herniated discs, tension, nerve compression, neck and back pain, tingling and numbness in the extremities, and more. It can also impair the nerves’ ability to carry messages, which can lead to chronic pain, illness, and trouble sleeping and concentrating.

Spinal Adjustments

Adjustments are a method chiropractors employ to restore and maintain proper alignment. Using their hands or an instrument, controlled force is applied to misaligned areas. This force ensures that the spinal bones and joints are all in their proper place, relieving the pressure from the surrounding spinal components. As such, adjustments are often used to treat:

  • Chronic back and neck pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Nerve compression
  • Sciatica
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Leg and arm pain
  • Injuries from auto accidents, sports, and work
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Inflammation
  • Muscle tension and much more

Adjustments are typically the core of chiropractic treatment, but they are often only one piece. In order to maintain alignment, soft tissue techniques are used to address tension that could strain the spinal column. Therapeutic exercises are also often used to strengthen the core, which can help keep the spine upright naturally. Additional techniques might be employed, depending on your specific needs and the condition being treated.
