An Overview of Chiropractic Adjustments from Momentum Chiropractic

In chiropractor school, doctors are trained to perform procedures that focus on the spine. Using these simple adjustments, we can make a tremendous difference in the quality of life of our patients. For this reason, it is important for everyone in the San Francisco, CA area to know what a chiropractic adjustment is and how it is performed.
What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
When someone visits a chiropractor, they might be told that they are going to receive a small adjustment or manipulation. First, nobody will ever undergo a procedure in our office unless they first provide their consent. If someone does agree to an adjustment procedure, then a series of controlled thrusts are used to shift the vertebrae slightly. This is done to ensure the vertebrae are aligned appropriately in the spine. When the vertebrae move out of alignment, this can cause pain, discomfort, stiffness, and poor posture. It can also impact the nerves and blood vessels of the spine. By moving the vertebrae back into the proper alignment, many of these problems will dissipate. This what an adjustment is designed to do.
What Conditions Can This Treat?
There are a variety of conditions in which spinal adjustments might be helpful. The first is poor posture. In many cases, poor posture will move the vertebrae out of alignment. In other cases, issues with alignment will cause poor posture. Regardless, it is important to make sure this issue is treated.
In addition, adjustments can be used to treat issues related to pinched nerves and herniated discs. This can be done to alleviate the pressure that might be placed on nerves that are pinched or compressed by a disc herniation. Finally, adjustments can also be used to help people who might have inflammation somewhere in the back or neck, such as whiplash.
