Chiropractic Adjustments Treats A Variety of Conditions
There are numerous techniques that chiropractors have at their disposal to help patients recover from acute and chronic injuries and illnesses. One of the most known methods a trained chiropractor performs is the chiropractic adjustments or chiropractic manipulation. These adjustments provide many benefits and are safe to conduct. We at Sauk Prairie Chiropractic are happy to offer chiropractic adjustments to the residents of Prairie Du Sac and surrounding areas.
How are Chiropractic Adjustments Performed?
Before Dr. Tom Terbilcox, our exceptional chiropractor who has over 30 years of experience, adjusts your spine, he will first obtain your history. This will define the nature of your presenting problem(s) and direct the nature of the examination. We then perform a thorough examination of the involved area. This will allow us to formulate a diagnosis of your condition and formulate a specific plan for your care. Chiropractic adjustment or chiropractic manipulative therapy is just one of many possible therapies that might be suggested.
A chiropractic adjustment refers to the manipulation of the spine to help it function properly. Our chiropractor may perform the adjustment by hand or with a handheld device. He will apply a series of controlled, mobilization procedures to the spine to reduce pain and improve function. Again, CMT is just one of several therapy options that we have at our disposal. Therapies often include both passive therapy (therapy that is applied to you) and active therapy (therapy that you are directed to perform on your own).
Conditions an Adjustment Can Correct
Spinal adjustments are great at treating a range of conditions. If you have a pinched nerve, an adjustment can take pressure off of it and relieve your symptoms. A herniated disc is another condition that can be treated with this type of technique and occurs when the disc’s interior fluid pushes through a crack of the outer layer of the disc. Adjustments to the disc can correct the issue and alleviate your pain without surgery. Chiropractic adjustments can also treat the following conditions:
- Neck and back pain
- Auto and sports injuries
Chiropractic adjustments are non-invasive and are the preferred method to use when improving health. They also can alleviate discomfort and pain, improve mobility, strengthen the immune system, and enhance overall wellness.
