Guide to Chiropractic Adjustments
You’ve heard of adjustments, but do you understand why they’re important? If you said no, you’re not alone. To help give you a clear understanding, Dr. Ginsberg and Dr. Bullock at Spine Pain & Performance Center in Geneva, IL, explain adjustments below.
What Do Adjustments Really Do?
Imagine that you are stacking canned food in your pantry. Fortunately, most cans are designed in such a way that you can neatly stack them on top of each other. This allows you to have a fairly organized pantry.
What would happen, though, if those cans didn't sit on top of each other neatly? What if just one of them was a fraction to the side? Chances are the cans might fall over when you open the pantry door.
Like cans, the bones of your neck and back are fitted to stack atop one another. Unfortunately, various things like tension and injuries cause them to become misaligned.
While you’re not likely to topple over, misalignment can cause many issues, including various types of pain. Adjustments are a method through which your bones are realigned, naturally relieving that pain and other related symptoms.
Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments
So how exactly do adjustments and proper alignment benefit you? A misalignment can lead to many issues, so the benefits of adjustments can vary according to the individual. However, the following are some common ones.
Reduced Pain and Inflammation
Misalignments cause pain and tension. The muscles sustain a great deal of pressure to hold up the spine. The ligaments and other soft tissues endure a great deal of strain, too. And a misalignment can lead to a herniated disc and subsequent nerve compression, which cause pain, tingling, and more. Restoring alignment naturally relieves these issues.
Improved Nervous System
When misalignment compresses the nerves, it doesn’t just cause pain. It can also prevent your nervous system from relaying messages between your spinal cord and the rest of your body accurately. Adjustments relieve this compression, restoring function to your nerves and boosting bodily function.
Better Sleep and More Energy
With pain and tension gone and your nervous system functioning properly, you can fall asleep and rest easier. You’ll also have more energy during the day, which will motivate you to be more active. Being active can further improve your sleep.
