When you think about going to the chiropractor, you probably think about getting your back cracked. This “back cracking” is called a chiropractic adjustment and it refers to manual adjustments to the musculoskeletal system.
The crack you hear is a release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide inside the joint. You may feel immediate relief after the cracking sensation because this release of gases relieves joint pressure.
During a chiropractic adjustment, Dr. Carollo and Dr. Bilitsis position your body a certain way and use their hands to apply pressure to the vertebrae. By applying force, your chiropractor attempts to realign your spine, relieving pain and encouraging the body’s natural self-healing processes.
The high-level experts at Prestige Chiropractic and Rehabilitation use spinal adjustments for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, including:
Spinal manipulations help return your body to optimal functioning. With correct spinal alignment, you regain lost mobility, experience reduced pain and irritation, and encourage your body to heal itself.
When the spine is out of alignment, it causes uneven stress on your discs, nerves, and surrounding tissues. So, re-aligning the spine reduces pressure on the nerves and restores proper function.
Because they participate in high-impact activities that strain the body, many athletes visit Prestige Chiropractic and Rehabilitation for regular chiropractic adjustments to improve their athletic performance and reduce the risk of injury. Spinal manipulation relieves strain on their bodies and increases their flexibility.
Spinal manipulation is a very safe treatment for pain. The non-invasive alternative to conventional medicine allows you to avoid drugs and surgery, in some cases.
Chiropractic adjustments also are effective. Research shows chiropractic care is a favorable treatment for neck pain, acute lower back pain, and headaches.
