At Rivertowne Family Chiropractic Wellness Center, our St. Charles chiropractor is here to help you achieve optimal health and wellness. Using state-of-the-art techniques and holistic care, our techniques can assist you in finding relief from pain, stiffness, and other discomforts. One of the more common techniques we utilize here in our office is that of spinal adjustment.
Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments
Specifically, a chiropractic adjustment is a manual technique performed by our skilled and experienced chiropractor. It focuses on gently manipulating the spine so as to correct imbalances and alignment issues. The end result is greater overall alignment of the spine, which can have huge benefits to your health. Many patients report that their symptoms (including pain, stiffness, and even headaches/migraines) begin to alleviate in as little as one session. However, we generally recommend ongoing spinal adjustment therapy to optimize results and help you feel your best. Some patients also report increased energy after a chiropractic adjustment—most likely due to the improved oxygen and blood flow throughout the body that occurs.
Conditions and Injuries Treated With Adjustments
There are many conditions and injuries that chiropractic adjustments can be used to help treat. Whiplash is one of the most common. Spinal adjustment as a whiplash treatment is ideal because it focuses on improving blood and oxygen flow to the damaged muscles, ligaments, and tendons surrounding the spine. It also helps to correct alignment issues that can cause stiffness and pain.
In addition to whiplash treatment, spinal adjustment is also commonly used in treating general back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain. Those with herniated or bulging discs can also find relief through a combination of chiropractic adjustment and massage therapy or spinal decompression.
