Relieving Pain and Restoring Spinal Health Through Chiropractic Adjustments

Adjustments are the most well-known and common technique used in chiropractic care, but they’re not things chiropractors do out of habit. Adjustments are performed because they are essential to health and wellness. Dr. Keough and Dr. Mashinter of Keough Chiropractic in Saint Charles, MO, explain the important role of chiropractic adjustments below.

The Core of Chiropractic Care

The human body is an intricate system made up of many interworking components. These include your bones, muscles, nerves, discs, ligaments, and tendons.

The bones are like the support beams of a home – they hold the body upright. When this foundation is misaligned, it puts stress and strain on the rest of the house – in this case, your body. This not only leads to pain and tension. It can also have a significant impact on your nervous system, which can create or worsen health issues, impair nerve function, impact mental clarity, and more.

Adjustments are a method in which any misaligned vertebrae are put back in their rightful place. This takes the stress and strain off of the other components and helps them stay functioning properly.

What Are Adjustments Used to Treat?

A misalignment in the musculoskeletal system can create many different types of pain and issues that adjustments can relieve. These include but are not limited to:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Knee and hip pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Pregnancy aches and pains
  • Impaired mobility
  • Shoulder pain
  • Pelvic issues

Additionally, you don’t have to be in pain to benefit from adjustments. Regular wellness visits to your chiropractor can help you stay out of pain by maintaining spinal alignment and health.

While adjustments are the core treatment technique, they are combined with other methods to ensure you achieve full healing and relief from pain and discomfort. Some other methods used include massage therapy, therapeutic exercises, and lifestyle adjustments.
