Spinal Adjustments and Your Health

The spine is an integral part of your overall health and wellbeing. It’s surrounded by various other components, including muscles and nerves. In between each of the bones are pliable discs that cushion the bones and absorb the shock of your movements.

As there are so many components, there are many ways for the spine to become misaligned. When this occurs, it puts excess pressure on the discs, nerves, and other surrounding components. This pressure can lead to everything from herniated discs to nerve compression, which can impact your general health.

It’s with the understanding of the importance of spinal health and wellness that chiropractors practice. It's also why spinal adjustments remain a core element of chiropractic care. Dr. Bradley and the team at Good News Chiropractic of Montrose, CO, explain how adjustments work and some of the many benefits they provide below.

Understanding Adjustments

Adjustments are a method used to force misaligned bones back into their proper place. The word “force” is often scary for those who haven’t experienced adjustments, but it’s not as harsh as it might seem. It’s simply a short thrust to shift the vertebrae back into place.

For those who are uncomfortable with sustaining this force, gentle adjustments are available. These are typically done with handheld instruments that provide a very quick, low-force pulse to a specific point. It’s often used to treat babies, pregnant women, and seniors.

Once the vertebra is shifted back into place, it removes excess pressure from the surrounding components. This provides a wide range of benefits, including but not limited to:

  • Relief from back and neck pain
  • Reduction or elimination of headaches
  • Improved nerve function
  • Decreased inflammation and swelling
  • Muscle tension and muscle spasm relief
  • Improved blood flow
  • Relief from the symptoms of fibromyalgia and arthritis
  • Reduction or elimination of pressure on the discs
  • Faster and natural recovery from sports, auto, and personal injuries

As nerve function and blood flow improve, many chiropractic patients see an improvement in their sleep quality, energy levels, and more.

While adjustments can be highly effective on their own, they are typically combined with other chiropractic techniques to ensure optimal results.
