What Are Chiropractic Adjustments?
Chiropractic adjustments, also known as spinal manipulation, is the chiropractor's process of using gentle movements, hard thrusts, or a handheld instrument to help move the vertebrate of the spine back into proper alignment. Patients will lie face down on a chiropractic table while the doctor applies pressure to certain areas of the spine. Some patients may hear a cracking or popping noise, which is the sound the spine makes when gasses such as nitrogen and oxygen are released from the joints. There are a variety of chiropractic adjustment modalities, and Dr. Hendricks in Farmington, Utah, will recommend an individualized treatment plan to address the patient’s needs.
There are numerous benefits of chiropractic adjustments. When the spine is aligned correctly, the joints move effectively, and the surrounding muscles experience less stiffness and aches. Patients will experience improved posture, reduced pain and discomfort, minimized migraines and headaches related to the neck area, and alleviated symptoms related to chronic ailments such as osteoarthritis and sciatica. Chiropractic adjustments allow the body to heal naturally and more quickly from injuries.
Upon your first visit, Dr. Hendricks will conduct a comprehensive physical exam and medical history and may order diagnostic imaging tests to better diagnose and treat the presenting symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments are non-invasive and help patients minimize or avoid prescription medicine. This treatment is generally not painful, but some patients may experience mild muscle soreness following the procedure. It is important for individuals to drink water following chiropractic adjustments to allow the body to flush out toxins and rehydrate the organs and tissues.
