Chiropractic care involves spinal manipulation and adjustments to align the spine. This improves the function of the nervous system, improves mobility, and reduces pain. At Holt Chiropractic & Acupuncture, serving Bay City and the surrounding areas of Sweeny, Palacios, and Blessings, we would like to look at the numerous benefits of spinal adjustments. If you have headaches, neck pain, lower back pain, or stiffness, spinal manipulation can help you heal. Once your spine is in place, the muscles supporting your spine will relax.
What to Expect During Chiropractic Adjustments
When you see a chiropractor for a range of issues, chiropractic adjustments are usually part of the treatment. They are designed to get your spine back into alignment, supporting your overall health. There's no reason to be worried about going for a chiropractic adjustment since they do not hurt.
Dr. Holt will talk to you about where the areas of your spine are out of alignment and use spinal manipulation techniques to adjust your spine. If your muscles are really tight, your adjustment is likely not going to last long. You will need to keep getting your back adjusted over time in order for the adjustment to eventually stay in place.
How Often Should You Get Your Spine Adjusted?
It is safe to get your spine adjusted frequently. In your early stages of treatment, you will likely see the chiropractor three times a week. During each session, the spinal adjustments will be consistent parts of your treatment. You will start to see that the adjustment lasts for longer periods of time, as your body heals. Spinal alignment is important to your overall health and mobility. When your spine is in place, you are better able to move without pain.
Techniques for Spinal Manipulation
Dr. Holt may simply use his hands to give you an adjustment or use a hand-held tool if we want to nudge the vertebrae into place. Chiropractors often use specialized tables for spinal adjustments. Stretching techniques or decompression strategies can also help when you are going in for an adjustment with our chiropractor. Talk with Dr. Holt about the various methods we use to learn more.
