What are Chiropractic Adjustments
Human spine comprises of series of small bones (called vertebrae) with small pads between the bones (called discs). This delicate structure enables humans to do many activities. Any miss-alignments can result in pain over period of time. Chiropractic adjustments help naturally fix the mis-alignment by applying gentle pressure to the spine.
How Do Adjustments Work?
It is a simple natural procedure in which patient lays down on their back on a chiropractic bed. Then Chiropractor applies gentle pressure in the appropriate areas of the back to gently fix the alignment. Sometimes, Chiropractor may use an instrument to apply gentle thrust to specific area of the spine. This short procedure is repeated over period of multiple weeks depending on the degree of the miss-alignment. These series of gentle adjustments are very effective to bring back alignment to the spine.
When Do I Start To Feel Better?
While it depends on the degree of the miss-alignment, You should start to feel better after first few visits. When the misalignment becomes severe, the human back would completely freeze to protect itself and cause a lot of pain. In these cases, you should start to feel relief fairly soon. For smaller miss-alignments due to incorrect exercise form, the relief could be fairly immediate.
