Spinal Manipulation 

Spinal manipulation describes any type of therapeutic movement of the spine, specifically applying pressure on a joint between two vertebrae. Most research on chiropractic treatment has focused on spinal manipulation for back pain. And with good reason as that is the most common problem facing adults as they age.

That said, chiropractic treatment can help resolve many other issues including headaches, asthma, and even carpal tunnel syndrome.

Done correctly, spinal manipulation often restores the proper position of the vertebral joints that protect the nerves in the spine which in turn gives the body its ability to address and heal the source of the pain. For example, the body’s natural response to pain is often a muscle spasm especially if the pain is related to muscles or ligaments. So, treat the source and eliminate the pain.

Restoring proper communication via the nerves along the nervous system allows the body to perform the natural its healing process as efficiently as possible. By putting pressure on the nerves chiropractic adjustments can restore proper position and range of motion which in turn can reduce or eliminate the source of the pain directly.
