Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments can address many problems and significantly improve your overall health. Many people begin visiting a chiropractor for pain relief, but the benefits go far beyond relieving your pain. If you are looking for a chiropractor in Sarasota, FL, contact us at Sarasota Chiropractic and Physical Therapy.


What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

Chiropractic adjustments are designed to correct misalignments, or subluxations, in the joints. Chiropractic adjustment of the spine is often called spinal manipulation. However, other joints can be adjusted as well. A skilled chiropractor can correct any joint that has a subluxation. Your chiropractor will begin by identifying any subluxations with a physical exam. Then, they will use gentle pressure and manipulation to correct the misalignment.

Types of Adjustment

Chiropractors can use a variety of adjustment techniques to tailor their treatment to the patient and their condition. Some techniques are designed for use on pregnant women, babies and children, or the elderly, while others are safe for all ages.

  • Manual adjustment: most common adjustment technique
  • Activator technique: uses a small instrument for precise adjusting
  • Drop table technique: uses a specialized table that moves or drops
  • Spinal decompression: uses a special table to create negative pressure in the spine
  • Diversified technique: combines methods for the best treatment

What Conditions Can a Chiropractic Adjustment Treat?

Chiropractic adjustment can treat a variety of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, joint pain, pinched nerves, and sciatica. Adjustments can treat both acute and chronic injuries, headaches, arthritis, and nerve-related pain.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustment

The most obvious benefit of chiropractic care is pain relief. However, chiropractic care offers many other benefits as well. Adjustments can improve your body's function and balance. This reduces your risk of pain and injury in the future. It increases blood flow and reduces inflammation. It also improves nervous system function and can help address neurological disorders. Adjustments can improve your range of motion, boost your immune system, improve sleep, and lower blood pressure.

What to Expect at Your First Visit

If you've never been to a chiropractor before, you may wonder what to expect. Your visit will begin with a physical exam. This may include X-rays or an MRI. Then, your chiropractor will discuss your symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle. They will then discuss your diagnosis and treatment plan. In many cases, you can get your first chiropractic adjustment at your first visit.
