About Chiropractic Adjustment

Chiropractic adjustment and chiropractic manipulation are commonly used terms by chiropractors and some neuromusculoskeletal specialists, who sometimes use the phrase adjustment for non-traumatic spinal manipulations. A chiropractor might, for example, use chiropractic adjustment when a patient is complaining of back pain, but he or she may also use it when a patient has complaints such as neck pain or ear pain. The technique is designed to realign the body’s alignment through gentle, slow stretches and strengthens the surrounding musculature and ligaments. It can also be used to relieve muscle spasms and realign vertebrae.You may want to check out Tacoma chiropractic adjustment for more.

Spinal manipulation and chiropractic adjustments have been shown to be effective for treating a wide variety of neuromusculoskeletal conditions, from musculoskeletal disorders to disorders of the musculoskeletal system, such as degenerative joint disease (also known as Osteoarthritis), to migraine headaches, to a variety of neurological problems. Chiropractic practitioners use these techniques in order to reduce pain and increase range of movement of patients, while reducing inflammation throughout the body. They can also help to realign subluxations within the spine, which in turn allows for better posture and more efficient use of movement.

Chiropractic treatment is based on the assumption that a patient’s neuromusculoskeletal system is supported by a complex interplay between muscle, nerve, and bone. There is an interaction between these structures called “neural stability” and “structural stability”, where chiropractic adjustments help to restore and maintain proper skeletal function by realigning the various structures of the body. When this is done, chiropractic adjustments can be administered through the application of mechanical stimuli, such as adjustments or manipulation. These mechanical stimuli can be applied manually, or can be delivered through the use of chemicals, such as spinal manipulations or ultrasound.
