Understanding Chiropractic Care FAQS
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is an approach to health care in which the physician treats neurological and/or musculoskeletal disorders by correcting misalignments in the spine called Subluxations. Every person has a nervous system consisting of your brain and your nerves. Your brain is constantly sending messages to your body via your nerves and this is how your body knows how to function properly.
Throughout our lives we put a lot of wear and tear on our bodies. This could be from sitting at a computer all day, doing a lot of physical work, or maybe even a trauma like a previous motor vehicle accident. The stress on our bodies eventually starts to shift the bones of our spine out of place and when that happens it squeezes down and irritates the nerves that go through the bones of the spine. This is called a Subluxation. Not only does it irritate the nerves but it affects whatever is on the end of that nerve. Most people who have a subluxation notice something is off because they have an increase in muscle tension or pain and inflammation. Often times this can further progress into conditions like headaches or sciatica.
Chiropractors are trained to find these subluxations or misalignments in the spine and help move them back into place with a Chiropractic Adjustment. By doing so we can take pressure off of your nervous system and have you feeling your absolute best.
What is an Adjustment?
An adjustment is when the Chiropractor provides a controlled thrust by the use of hands or instrument to move misaligned vertebra back into their proper alignment. Often time’s people may hear an audible pop or crack similar to if they popped their fingers. This is often what happens when the adjustment is performed with the use of hands.
Some patients don’t like to hear the popping noise. If this is the case we also provide instrument adjusting. Instrument adjusting uses a light force but quicker adjustment technique for people who want a gentler approach to their adjustments. Each method is effective, it just depends on the patient’s preference.
Chiropractic adjustments are quite relaxing and many times people start feeling looser right away. If you’ve never been adjusted before Dr. Baumann will walk you step by step through the adjustment process.
