Adjustments and Manipulation

chiropractic adjustment

Back pain is a common occurrence for many people throughout their lives. For those seeking a more conservative approach to addressing their back pain, chiropractic care is often a suitable, noninvasive choice. Dr. Paul Hyland of Committed to Health Chiropractic Center in Creve Coeur, MO, can reduce back pain and help reduce its likely recurrence.

What are Chiropractic Adjustments?

Spinal adjustments, which also refer to spinal manipulations, involve a hands-on technique used by a chiropractic professional to realign your spine. This dramatically improves and enhances the functioning of your musculoskeletal and nervous systems.

Chiropractic adjustments align with traditional chiropractic theory, which contends that a misaligned spine can disrupt your nervous system’s optimal functioning, ultimately dysregulating the rest of your body. When a nervous system does not function optimally, it may contribute to various health issues that reduce mobility and create various degrees of pain.  The goal of chiropractic adjustments is to bolster your body's natural ability to heal – which promotes overall health.

To deliver a spinal adjustment, a chiropractor applies a precise and controlled force to a targeted region of the spine. This technique seeks to alleviate or eliminate pain, inflammation, swelling, nerve pressure, muscle tension, and other related issues.

Spinal adjustments can be performed manually or by using a specialized instrument with a similar goal in mind. The choice is contingent on your condition being addressed and, if applicable, the patient's preferences.
