What Is Spinal Adjustment Therapy?

Spinal adjustment therapy is the gentle manipulation and realignment of the spinal discs and joints.

When the spine becomes misaligned, it puts pressure on surrounding tissue. In turn, this can lead to multiple issues including slipped discs, pinched nerves, and stiff muscles. These back conditions can cause pain, numbness, stiffness, and swelling.

Spinal adjustment corrects this misalignment and restores proper function throughout the body.

Who Needs Spinal Adjustment Therapy?

Several conditions can be treated effectively with chiropractic spinal adjustment.

• Osteoarthritis
• Degenerative disc disease
• Bulging or slipped discs
• Pinched nerves
• Sciatica

Those suffering from chronic conditions such as arthritis or degenerative disc disease can often find relief with regular chiropractic care. Spinal adjustment therapy can relieve swelling and pain and restore movement to the affected area.

Bulging or herniated discs put pressure on surrounding muscles and nerves, causing excessive swelling and pain. Spinal manipulation can reduce swelling. This allows discs to be slipped back into place, relieving pain and discomfort.

Pinched nerves, including sciatica, can result from spinal misalignment that puts pressure on surrounding nerve tissue, which causes shooting pains that make it difficult to walk.

If the pinched nerve is in the neck, it can hinder the range of motion in the arms. Realigning the joints to relieve the pressure on surrounding nerves reduces pain and irritation.
