Spinal & Extremity Adjustment
Chiropractic care could very well be the missing ingredient in your healthcare. Since its inception in 1895, it remains a time-tested effective modality for delivering optimal health, wellness, comfort, and injury recovery. Chiropractic adjustments to the spinal column can ease pain, enhance joint motion, improve your posture, and restore normal nervous system function. Our doctors train monthly to stay abreast of the most current techniques in the field.
The Importance of Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments
The human spine is truly complex. The vertebrae serve to protect the spinal cord while the discs, joints, and the muscle groups that allow the spine to twist, turn, and bend. Subluxations or improper positioning and movement patterns of the vertebrae can upset the delicate balance of the nervous system causing neck or back pain. Bulging or herniated discs can apply pressure against nerve roots, producing discomfort or weakness in the arms or legs. Pressure against nerves supplying the organs of the body can decrease their function as well. Chiropractic spinal adjustment can relieve these problems by restoring neurological balance to the body. Our chiropractors use both manual or instrument-assisted techniques that deliver a focused, gentle force to the spinal components, shifting them back into their original position.
What to Expect From Your Adjustment
Chiropractic spinal manipulation can be performed safely on most individuals of all ages. A thorough chiropractic examination of your spinal alignment will identify subluxations or imbalances that may be creating the symptoms you are feeling. Awaken Optimal Health will ensure that you are a good candidate for chiropractic adjustment before proceeding. A plan of chiropractic care, repeated adjustments over time, will make the changes. Often, the relief is immediate. However, a period of follow-up care ensures that the changes hold. Popping or cracking sounds may occur while an adjustment is made. This harmless phenomenon occurs when trapped gasses escape from within the joint fluid. Our team of doctors are truly experts, maximizing patient comfort, and during their over 80 years of combined experience, they have delivered tens of thousands of adjustments.
