How Do Adjustments Work?
Sometimes the wear and tear of everyday life can impact the spine and cause the vertebrae to move in a way that is different to normal in a dysfunctional way.
The wear and tear can happen gradually, such as from bad posture or it can happen suddenly which is common with sporting injuries. Because of the close association between the spine and the nervous system everyday strains can actually affect the flow of information and communication between the brain and the body.
When abnormal movement of the spine occur, Chiropractors’ call this vertebral subluxation or Chiropractic subluxation. By making fast gentle, specific adjustments to the spine, Chiropractor’s restore the spine’s normal movement. As you are adjusted you may hear a popping sound, that can seem a bit strange. In fact it’s completely harmless, it’s just the release of gas between spinal segments.
Is Chiropractic Safe?
Chiropractic is remarkably safe. Some people may think Chiropractic adjustments might be harmful or dangerous. In fact when you look at the literature on Chiropractic care, you can see it is remarkably safe, it’s highly effective and has high levels of patient satisfaction. Chiropractic care has an enviable safety record compared to other health care interventions.
Rest assured that if you go and see a Chiropractor you are in safe hands.
What are the benefits of Chiropractic?
A Chiropractor will adjust any dysfunctional spinal segments what we call vertebral subluxations to restore healthy movement of the spine. This can improve the communication between your brain, your body and the environment. When your brain can accurately perceive what is going on inside and out, it can better control your body for the situation at hand.
This means your body moves accurately, has fewer accidents so you can function and perform at your best.
And we are very good at relieving your pain as well!
