Chiropractic Adjustments | Lakeland FL
The chiropractors at New City Chiropractic perform chiropractic adjustments for spine alignment, correcting a number of conditions and treating various medical conditions and injuries. Chiropractic spinal alignments can help realign your vertebrae, relieving pressure on nerves and providing much needed pain relief. When you visit a chiropractor, the primary goal of your treatment in most cases is to reduce spinal misalignment, also known as subluxation.
Chiropractic Adjustment Benefits
Eliminating or reducing spinal subluxation with manual neck and back adjustments can be very beneficial. The benefits of spine alignment include:
Reduced pain caused by spinal misalignment (subluxation)
Enhanced range of motion with improvements to spinal mobility and function
Reduced pain and nerve irritability
These are just a few of the many benefits for lasting pain relief and improved wellness after a spinal alignment and adjustment. Often, this treatment is simply referred to as a “chiropractic adjustment”.
Types of Spinal Alignment Techniques
This technique is used for adjustments that have a specific problem area to address. Using the Gonstead technique, the chiropractor will take a complete look at the spinal area and aligns the spine based on this comprehensive analysis. Full x-rays of the spine and nervoscopes are often used to best assess how to conduct the alignment.
This technique is a common and effective scoliosis treatment, but it is also a popular treatment for some types of joint pain and other common complaints involving back and neck pain. Flexion distraction stretches the back and aligns the spine by relying on adjusting tables with movable parts designed to decompress the spine via a rocking motion.
Logan Basic Technique
Chiropractors begin the Loan technique with heel lifts, gently applying pressure around the spinal area in order to realign the bones of the spine. The Logan technique is an effective chiropractic migraine treatment for many patients.
This popular technique can provide what some describe as instant neck and back pain relief. The diversified technique is a common lower back pain treatment, used for suitable candidates in lumbar disk herniation adjustment. The “popping” sound that many associate with the chiropractor is also a result of the chiropractor’s manual thrusts using this classic style of spinal alignment.
Chiropractic Neck Adjustment
During neck adjustments, gentle pressure is applied to realign the cervical spine. This decreases joint fluid, causing a pop or crack and releasing pressure in the neck area. Additional symptoms that can benefit from neck adjustments include:
Upper back and shoulder pain
Stiffness in the neck
Depression and/or anxiety
Back Adjustment Benefits
If you have long-term (chronic) back pain or acute pain that has persisted for a few weeks, chiropractic back adjustments can lead to lasting relief for the following symptoms and conditions:
Strained back muscles and/or ligaments
Difficulty with mobility due to back issues
