Chiropractic adjustments involve a chiropractor manipulating joints to relieve pain and correct misalignment. Our certified Georgetown chiropractor, Dr. Ryan, offers chiropractic adjustments to patients from Georgetown and beyond who come seeking pain relief. If you have chronic or acute pain from injuries, accidents, or arthritis, you will likely benefit from chiropractic adjustments.
What Are Chiropractic Adjustments?
Chiropractic adjustments include everything from applying pressure with fingertips to quick targeted thrusts that move a joint. Chiropractic adjustments correct subluxations in the musculoskeletal system. Subluxations refer to any joint abnormalities such as immobilizations and misalignments. Most pain can be traced back to subluxations in the neck, spine, knees, feet, and other extremities.
How Chiropractic Adjustments Work
Before any adjustments, your chiropractor will first identify the source of your pain. Though our trained chiropractor can identify misalignments by physical examination, he may also request an x-ray evaluation to see inside the bones.
After identifying the subluxations, our chiropractor will apply gentle force to your joints and spine to correct any misalignments. A combination of thrusts, pressure, and specialized instruments will return misaligned joints to their natural position. Chiropractic adjustments will also restore your range of motion. Using various techniques, including massage therapy, stretches, and gentle force, our trained chiropractor can gradually re-train injured areas to move as they once did.
Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments
Joint and spinal adjustments will help you perform daily activities more easily. Even after realigning and mobilizing the joints, our chiropractor will ensure that the supporting muscles perform their best. After chiropractic adjustments, our patients report the following improvements:
- Long-lasting pain relief
- Increased range of motion in the affected joint
- Increased endurance
- Increased flexibility overall
Our chiropractor also may also address your lifestyle habits, including your posture, nutrition, and anxiety. This holistic approach to wellness will set you on the path to better health.
