Chiropractic adjustments are primarily used to treat back pain. First utilized as early as 1500 BC, chiropractic adjustments focus on relieving pressure on joints, reducing inflammation, and improving nerve functions. They can also be used to treat conditions such as allergies, menstrual cramps, and headaches.
A common misconception from movies and television is that chiropractic adjustments use power and force. Adjustments actually rely on proper angles and leverage from hand movements to reduce joint and nerve stress. At Action Chiropractic, we focus on gentler methods and purposely utilize techniques that cause less soreness and are easier for your body to adapt.
Overall, chiropractic adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level without discomfort.
