The importance of spinal health

Your spine does a lot for your body – it protects your spinal cord, allows you to breathe correctly, and allows your body to move. Almost every function in your body is directly connected to the health of your spine.

Your spine is an interconnected system that consists of vertebrae, discs, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. It takes a delicate balance of the entire system to ensure it is at its peak level of health and function.

When your spine is not functioning correctly, it can interfere with everyday activities and cause severe pain. This is where the spinal manipulation technique can help!


What is spinal manipulation?

Pain and injury are often the result of spine joint imbalances or deviations that cause a joint to become misaligned or fixated. These misaligned or fixated vertebrae are known to alter the biomechanical function of the joints and alter the body’s function ability to move optimally often resulting in excessive muscle tension and discomfort.

Spinal manipulation is a manual technique used to move the spinal joints passively through their normal motion limits. Spinal manipulation is an effective form of treating back pain and is performed by taking spinal joints to their comfortable limits and applying a high-velocity thrust. This adjustment restores the malalignment of the joints to proper alignment resulting in less pressure on the joints and muscles, which leads to less pain and improved functioning of the entire body.

Most chiropractors use spinal manipulation regularly to treat low back and other musculoskeletal pain, and it is often considered the hallmark treatment of chiropractors. Often the manipulations are accompanied by popping sounds, although they are not always needed for effective results.

Spinal manipulation aims to reduce your pain and ensure your spine functions properly.
