Maybe you've noticed a sudden pain that limits your daily activities. Maybe you like to maintain your body with routine adjustments or maybe you were recently involved in a motor vehicle accident. Let our experienced chiropractor restore and improve your health through spinal adjustment and other treatments.
A spinal adjustment, also known as "chiropractic adjustment" is a safe, natural, noninvasive procedure in which trained chiropractors will use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint. The goal of this procedure is to improve spinal motion and improve your body's posture and physical function.
The intention of a chiropractic adjustment is to affect or correct the alignment, motion and/or function of a vertebral joint. Specifically, they are intended to correct "vertebral subluxations" which are abnormal alignments of vertebrae.
Possible signs that your spine is out of alignment include:
The effects of spinal manipulation have been shown to include relief of musculoskeletal pain, increased range of joint motion, relief from nerve impingement, improved posture and improved facet joint kinematics.
It is recommended to sleep on a firmer mattress and choose a pillow that supports the head so that your entire spine is in a neutral position. Use a thinner (2" - 3" height maximum) pillow if you are sleeping face up. If you are sleeping on your side, use a thicker pillow to accommodate for shoulder width. To help alleviate back and hip pain, you may also want to use a pillow between your knees when sleeping on your side. It is recommended to avoid sleeping on your stomach as the head is turned and will cause undue and prolonged stress on your neck.
