If you're considering chiropractic care or curious about chiropractic adjustments, read on to discover answers to some frequently asked questions.


What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is a manual manipulation of the spine or other joints by a trained chiropractor. During the adjustment, the chiropractor applies controlled force to specific areas of the spine or joints to correct misalignments, improve mobility, and alleviate pain.

How Does Chiropractic Adjustment Work?

Chiropractic adjustments work by restoring proper alignment to the spine and joints, which helps relieve pressure on nerves, muscles, and surrounding tissues. By realigning the spine, chiropractors aim to restore optimal function to the nervous system and promote the body's natural ability to heal itself.

What Conditions Can Chiropractic Adjustment Treat?

Chiropractic adjustments are commonly used to treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Sciatica
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Work-related injuries

Is Chiropractic Adjustment Safe?

When performed by a qualified and experienced chiropractor, chiropractic adjustments are generally considered safe and effective. Chiropractors undergo extensive training to perform adjustments safely and minimize the risk of complications. However, as with any medical procedure, there are certain risks and contraindications to consider, which your chiropractor will discuss with you before treatment.

What Can I Expect During a Chiropractic Adjustment?

During a chiropractic adjustment, you may experience a popping or cracking sound as the joints are manipulated. This is normal and often results from the release of gas bubbles in the joints. Some patients may also experience mild discomfort or soreness following an adjustment, which typically resolves within a day or two.
