Feb 25

What Is a Chiropractic Adjustment and How Does It Work?

The chiropractor can diagnose and treat neurological conditions such as Alzheimer's. In spanish Quiropractica refers to chiropractic.

A qualified chiropractor adjusts the joints of the body using special equipment, or with their hands. This is sometimes called "spinal" or "joint adjustments" in some circles. It can be used to reduce pain and improve the overall function of the body.

Chiropractors can diagnose and treat many conditions involving the neurological system or musculoskeletal system. The result is that low back pain can be relieved, along with headaches, neck discomfort and muscle pains.

Methods for Adjustments


1. Diversified Approach

The main goals of this diverse approach are the restoration and correction of spinal alignment and maintenance of mobility and optimal movement. Practitioners can help patients restore their spinal alignment or expand their range of motion due to misaligned bones and joints. Practitioners use precise, hands-on thrusts on patients to achieve this. According to the American Chiropractic Association this technique has been widely used. 96% of all chiropractors have used the Diversified Technique on approximately 70% of their patients.


3. Drop-Table Technique (Thompson Drop Table)

To make the Thompson Drop-Table work, you need a specially-designed table made of padded platforms that have drop mechanisms. This allows the patient to "drop" only a fraction of an inches while the practitioner performs a swift thrust to complete the adjustment. Patients find this gentle lowering action to be similar to a faint vibration to being comfortable.


4. The Activator Technology

An 'Activator' is a small handheld device used by chiropractors to provide moderate impulses to the extremities or vertebral segments. The spring-loaded device works by changing the tone of your nervous system. This can treat a variety of ailments, including headaches and lower back pain.


5. Distraction from Flexion

Flexion-Distraction can also be used. This is done by using a particular table that both distracts from the spine and flexes it in a smooth rhythmic motion. This method is used to treat leg and back pain as well as symptomatic disc injuries. The adjustment can be performed without pain and is even considered comfortable. It is a good option for people who have suffered recent injuries or who are sensitive to other types.


5. Decompression Of the Spine

Chiropractic decompression works more as a technique that an adjustment. It is still worth noting for its ability to treat lower back pain that can be caused by bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative discs, or slipping discs. It is possible to achieve spinal compression by using a special table that gently stretch the spine and promotes the healthy flow water, oxygen, or other necessary fluids, throughout the discs.


For persons who undergo chiropractic adjustments, the prognosis is their future outlook.

While chiropractic care can help relieve your symptoms for the short term, the ultimate goal should be to restore your health for the long-term. A chiropractor will ask how you move through the day (standing, sitting and walking) and what time you sleep each night.

To avoid future problems, it's a good idea learn how to correctly position your body when at your desk, standing, and moving, as well as when you're lying down.


What do I need more information about chiropractic care?

It is strongly recommended that only licensed chiropractors perform adjustments. Also known as doctor of chiropractic, or DC. Negative effects and difficulties are more likely if adjustments are given by people who have not been adequately trained or certified.


When is it advisable to schedule an appointment with my doctor?

Pay attention to any symptoms that may arise while you receive chiropractic care. You should contact your doctor immediately if these symptoms persist.
