Raleigh Chiropractic Adjustments
Chronic issues such as sinus problems, back and neck pain, and headaches are just a few of the issues commonly relieved by chiropractic care. There are specific concepts behind chiropractic procedures, including the belief that the human body is – to some extent – inherently capable of healing itself. The body’s nerves, muscles, bones, and joints are all interconnected and work harmoniously together to complete the healing process. Chiropractic treatment involves different types of adjustments that help keep the body healthy.
Chiropractic adjustments are procedures involving the use of the practitioner’s hands and other small tools to improve alignment within the body. There are multiple techniques chiropractors apply based on the complaints and conditions of each patient. These include:
- Manipulation. This means of adjustment entails careful but sudden force to spinal joints. This procedure is commonly identified by its “popping” sound.
- Mobilization. The mobilization of joints involves a series of slow stretches. Patients undergoing mobilization generally do not experience relief as quickly as those treated with spinal manipulation, and may, therefore, require more visits.
- Drop table adjusting. A chiropractic adjusting table allows for individual portions of it to be lifted. When force is applied to a patient’s body, the lifted portion of the table drops back into place. This allows momentum to assist with the maneuver.
- Instrument assisted adjusting. Chiropractic tools can be used when working with patients who are either in extreme pain or find the traditional means of adjusting too uncomfortable. Some instruments are designed with different levels of intensity to release impulses onto the troubled area of the body.
Aside from chiropractic adjustments, we provide a range of other services. Our specialties include spinal decompression and issues relative to neuropathy, pregnancy, nutrition, stress management, corrective care, and orthotics. We even offer pediatric care, making our facility a family-friendly environment.
Poor posture, stress, and poor sleeping habits can also contribute to overall body pain and discomfort. There is also some evidence that chiropractic treatment can relieve behavioral problems.
