Guide to Spinal Adjustment with Our Chiropractor

Most people know someone who visited a chiropractor and likely swears by chiropractic adjustments for headaches and back pain. However, at Spinal Health and Rehab Integrative Medicine in Punta Gorda, FL, something new can be intimidating, so we put together this guide to help answer important questions.


What's the Purpose of Chiropractic Adjustments?

Chiropractic adjustments are a natural way to realign the spine. Various things can cause misalignment of the spine, which is notorious for creating pain. However, it goes beyond that.

Your spine is directly connected to the nervous system. Therefore, when the spine is not aligned correctly, it can wreak havoc on the nervous system, creating many minor and much more severe problems. Therefore, chiropractic adjustments are vital to restoring health and proper function to both your spine and nervous system.

How Do They Work?

After locating the misaligned area, our chiropractor will apply quick and short thrusts to the joints. This action helps the joints return to their natural position, relieves pressure from the nerves, and even makes it easier for you to move. This process is effective in headaches, back pain, and chronic pain relief.

Why Would I Need Chiropractic Adjustments?

Many people know they must visit a chiropractor after an auto accident or other traumatic event. However, a significant accident is not the only reason to see a chiropractor.

Every day, your spine supports you and all the tasks you carry out. This support includes everything from sitting and sleeping to running a marathon. If your body is involved, so is your spine, which means your spine is always working.

Even sitting on your couch while scrolling online can damage your spinal column if you’re not practicing proper posture. Likewise, sitting at a desk for hours, lifting heavy objects at work, and even lifting your children can lead to an injury.

The symptoms of an injury do not always show up as back pain, though they are beneficial for back pain treatment. However, the pain may also be headaches, shoulder pain, numbness, tingling, and hip pain. Realigning the spine is vital to lasting chronic pain relief and effective headache treatment.

Adjustments aren’t just for current issues. They also help maintain a healthy spine to avoid those issues. The bottom line is that everyone can benefit from chiropractic adjustments, even if you’re not in pain.
