How Do Chiropractic Adjustments Help with Back Pain?
All types of back pain can be alleviated via chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments are a procedure in which a chiropractor applies pressure to the vertebrae of the spine. The entire process of adjustments is known to improve function, increase range of motion, decrease nerve irritation, and reduce inflammation. Chiropractic adjustments are effective in helping patients suffering from back pain improve their strength and heal without the need for drugs or surgery. Patients can experience an improvement in posture and range of mobility following regular chiropractic adjustments. When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your back pain before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it.
