Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments

Reduce Pain

Many patients will notice some instant relief following their first adjustments; others will take longer to respond. Various factors will affect initial symptomatic relief, including length and severity of the presenting concern, along with other comorbid conditions and compliance to recommendations.

Adjustments Are Safe

Chiropractic is a non-invasive, drug-free discipline, therefore the risks associated are very low. Adverse effects are very rare and your chiropractor will assess you individually for any risks before beginning care. Chiropractic adjustments are very safe when applied by a licensed chiropractor in a clinical setting. Chiropractors spend many years of training on examination and correction of the spine and are without a doubt the most qualified professionals to perform spinal adjustments.

Healthy Nervous System

The fully developed adult spine is ideally suited to naturally absorb physical stress and tension, while still providing protection for the nervous system and a wide range of mobility for the body. The human spine houses and protects our spinal cord which connects our brain and central nervous system to the rest of our body. Under constant postural strain, the normal movement of the spine can be affected, which then places stress on the nervous system. Therefore, the integrity of your spine is integral to how you move, train, heal, and ultimately how healthy you are.
