When you feel pain in your back or neck, it’s probably because the area is “locked up” or overly stiff and the spinal manipulations exert pressure on these areas. Generally, these are quick thrusts that re-align your spinal column and reduce the pain.
What Is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
It’s a physical practice both for the patient and the doctor.
As the patient with back pain, you may lay on the chiropractic table while your doctor massages the sore area to break up lactic acid causing back pain. Then, you breathe out while he exerts quick pressure on your back. Then, you may turn to one side while he uses his body weight to realign your spine.
Of course, each treatment plan is different so you may experience a different set of adjustments.
Yet, most chiropractic patients feel immediate relief.
Relief for Your Pinched Nerve
Here’s another example. Thousands complain about pinched nerves in their back or neck and thousands find relief with a chiropractor. Your spine is filled with 32 pairs of nerves so there is ample opportunity for pain. A true pinched nerve is bone resting on a nerve. You might feel burning or a tingling sensation in the area.
Your spinal nerve tissue can be scraped or irritated by spinal joints that are out of alignment. The reason the chiropractic adjustment can relieve the pain is because the adjustment relieves the pressure on the nerves. In essence, your spine is put back where it’s supposed to be.
It’s a completely natural, effective and non-surgical approach to pain.
