What to Expect During Spine Adjustments

Why Spine Adjustments Help

5 Facts to Know About Spine Adjustments

Many people have heard of spine adjustments but not everyone has a complete understanding of them. In this short guide, Dr. Salkin and his team in the Upper East Side of New York, NY share five facts that everyone should know.

1. Spine Adjustments Can Address a Variety of Issues

Spinal adjustments are excellent tools for correcting issues that cause pain, including sciatica, misalignment, herniated discs, and more. However, they also help improve nerve function, which is directly related to many illnesses and medical conditions.

2. They Can Relieve Pain That Other Methods Do Not

Adjustments have often relieved pain that various other methods have proven unsuccessful at. This is because adjustments seek to address the source of pain, which is often a misalignment that has caused various other issues and symptoms.

For example, a misalignment often leads to a herniated disc, which causes pain, numbness, tingling, and more. By correcting the misalignment, the source of these symptoms is no longer present. Most other methods only mask the symptoms.

3. The Popping Sound Isn’t Your Bones

Spinal adjustments often result in a popping or cracking sound. This has led many to believe that the bones of the back are actually responsible for the noise. However, it’s actually a build-up of gasses that has taken up residence in the misaligned area that is popped, resulting in the noise.

4. You Don’t Have to Be In Pain to Benefit From Adjustments

It’s certainly true that adjustments can relieve pain, but they do much more than that. Regular spinal adjustments keep the spinal column aligned, reducing the likelihood of injury and pain, keeping the nerves functioning properly, and maintaining general health and wellness.

5. There Are Various Forms of Adjustments

While hands-on adjustments are the most commonly known form, they are not the only ones. There are multiple types of adjustments to suit every comfort level and type of issue. If you have any concerns about traditional adjustments, let your chiropractor know. They’ll customize your treatment plan to your needs and preferences.
