Chiropractors specialize in diagnosing and treating various issues or disorders associated with the musculoskeletal system. With a noninvasive and holistic approach to healthcare management, chiropractic care can be used on its own or to complement other techniques. Dr. Scott Craig of Health Centered Chiropractic offers treatment options from our Scottsburg, IN, location that can help alleviate the cause and symptoms of many painful conditions like herniated discs, sciatica, neck pain/whiplash, tendonitis, and more.
What are Chiropractic Adjustments?
Spinal adjustments or manipulations refer to a hands-on technique in which a chiropractor seeks to realign your musculoskeletal system – often, this includes adjusting one's spinal column.
These manipulations made by a chiropractor follow chiropractic theory, which believes that a misaligned spine can cause a nervous system to malfunction. A nervous system that is not working optimally has the potential to create a variety of health issues throughout the body, which typically include mobility issues, pain, loss of capacity, and more. Spinal manipulations can help correct an existing misaligned spine, which also offers the benefit of promoting the body's natural healing abilities – optimizing one's overall health and well-being.
A chiropractor, when adjusting one's spine, does so with sudden but controlled force to the target area. Ultimately, the objective is to promote joint mobility, which then allows for the proper spine alignment. The result is a reduction (or complete removal) of pain, inflammation, swelling, nerve pressure, muscle tension, and more. Note that a spinal adjustment can be done with or without the use of a specialized instrument – the final decision depends on the patient and the condition for which they are being treated.
