When these signals experience interference from improper motion or bone position, it’s called a subluxation. This can reduce the nervous system’s ability to function, and can impact:
- Cardiovascular system
- Many other parts of the body
Chiropractic care adjusts the position and movement of these problem bones. It can relieve specific pains and problems, and improve how our bodies work overall.
Your nervous system controls all the functions of the body. So, if the signals traveling through the system can’t get where they need to go, your body won’t function at 100%.
Subluxations can be caused by:
- Injuries, like those from falls or car accidents
- Strenuous exercise
- Repetitive motion
- Drugs and alcohol
- Poor nutrition
- Genetic defects
The only truly effective way to identify a subluxation is through a chiropractic exam.
Sometimes. Our bodies have the ability to self-correct many of these problems as we bend and stretch. Sleep is can also be effective in getting our bodies back to normal.
However, if you have chronic aches or pains, a visit to a chiropractic doctor is definitely in order.
The exact adjustment depends on the patient and the subluxation. The chiropractic doctor will use a combination of methods and tools, including:
- The doctor’s hands
- Special instruments
- Special tables
When determining how to adjust you, your doctor will evaluate:
- Your body type
- The types of subluxations
- The severity of your misalignment
- Location of subluxations
Chiropractic adjustments take years to master. Even then, they are virtually impossible to perform on yourself. Chiropractic doctors consult each other for adjustments.
- Your condition and subluxations
- Your personal goals
Many patients feel better within a week or so of frequent visits. However, to maintain proper spine positioning, additional adjustments are usually needed.
Whether your ultimate goal is increasing range of motion or decreasing pain, the time needed to reach that goal depends on:
- The severity of your subluxation
- The length of time you’ve had the condition
- Your overall health
Experience shows that patients who receive at least occasional ongoing treatment:
- Better maintain their gains
- Are able to identify future problems earlier and so need less treatment later on
