Chiropractic Adjustments at Mass Sport & Spine Chiropractic
When you think of a chiropractor, you usually think about a chiropractic adjustment, one of the most common treatments provided by a chiropractor. It's an all-natural, non-addictive treatment. Not to mention, it doesn't cause any serious side effects, unlike pain medications. However, before you receive one, you may want to know a little bit more about the process from a chiropractor like one from Mass Sport & Spine.
Definition of a Chiropractic Alignment
Also known as a chiropractic adjustment, this particular treatment uses manual manipulation provided by a chiropractor who pushes the vertebrae back in place. It alleviates pressure on the surrounding nerves and tissue. Additionally, it promotes blood flow and encourages your body to work together as a whole.
Types of Conditions Chiropractic Alignments Treat
One condition you can find relief from using a chiropractic adjustment is whiplash. This particular condition occurs as a result of damage to the soft tissue or nerves surrounding the neck. By realigning the vertebrae, you ease your pain and discomfort. A chiropractic alignment is beneficial to those who suffer from sciatica, a condition that arises as a result of damage or compression to the sciatic nerve. It causes symptoms such as pain, numbness, tingling, or other discomfort.
A spinal alignment reduces pain in people who have general misalignments. It counteracts discomfort in those who have degenerative disc disease, a condition that occurs as a result of the natural wear and tear of discs. Our chiropractors use it if you have arthritis, spinal stenosis, or spondylosis. Our chiropractors may prescribe it if you have chronic headaches or migraines.
How an Alignment Reduces Pain
If you have any vertebrae or discs pushing against the nerves or soft tissue in your back, you could experience discomfort. In fact, you might notice you have numbness or tingling. By repositioning the vertebrae, our chiropractor takes pressure off of the surrounding nerves and soft tissue. A spinal adjustment helps the body work as a whole.
An alignment also promotes blood flow throughout your back, which brings additional nutrients to all areas of your back. The nutrient content promotes healing.
If you have headaches or migraines, the alignment reduces pain by taking pressure off of the lower portion of your brain, which a misalignment can irritate. The treatment optimizes blood flow, which means your body receives an adequate amount of nutrients, ultimately reducing your risk of suffering from a nutrient deficiency.
