Chiropractic Adjustments and How They Can Benefit Your Life
When you’re in pain, you might think of many different reasons that it might be happening. For example, you might think your chronic headaches are due to stress. While that can be true, much of the pain people suffer from every day stems from a spinal misalignment. Learn how this can be and how chiropractic adjustments can help in the guide below from Dr. Slater at Mason Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Center in Mason, OH.
The Truth About Misalignment
Your spinal column consists of more than 30 bones and joints that are cushioned by spinal discs and surrounded by muscles, nerves, and other soft tissues. The bones and joints are intended to stack neatly and fit together in a specific way.
When one of these bones is out of its proper placement, it puts undue pressure on your discs, muscles, and other soft tissues. It can also lead to nerve compression. Unfortunately, all of this can lead to various types of pain, including headaches and improper nerve function.
How Adjustments Can Help
Spinal adjustments are a technique in which a chiropractor uses either their hands or an instrument to restore proper alignment to the spinal column. When the bones and joints are in their proper placement, it can help relieve a wide range of symptoms. These include but are not limited to:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Fibromyalgia pain
- Numbness or tingling of the extremities
- Hip pain
- Leg pain
- Shoulder pain and more
Adjustments are typically only one part of treatment. Soft tissue techniques are often used to relieve tension and strain. Therapeutic exercises are also used to stretch the spinal column and strengthen the core. Combining such techniques with adjustments helps ensure that alignment is maintained.
Additionally, you don’t have to be in pain to enjoy the benefits of adjustments. Regular chiropractic visits can help maintain both spinal and overall health and wellness.
