What is Subluxation?
Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustment
During the normal course of your life, your spine may become misaligned. This misalignment can lead to a variety of issues, such as headaches, stiffness, backaches, fatigue, sickness, or even migraines, to name a few. These issues can be brought about from normal day-to-day stresses, but also from poor posture, injury, or long periods of sitting. A misaligned spine puts pressure on the nervous system and the discs (pads which cushion between the vertebrae), which can cause severe pain. Chiropractic adjustment can help with these issues by realigning the spine to reduce the pressure and inflammation on the spinal discs.
The nervous system has an effect on every other system within the body. As a result, chiropractic treatment can help to address issues with muscle pain and soreness, circulation, and may help to prevent arthritis. When paired with technologies such as ultrasound or x-ray imaging, a chiropractor can target areas with a highly specified treatment.
What to Expect in a Chiropractic Adjustment
When visiting the office, Dr. Strack will first assess your condition and create a plan of treatment for your specific condition. Your plan may include a combination of traditional chiropractic adjustment techniques as well as Active Release Technique and other therapeutic modalities. Every condition is unique, and Dr. Strack will take your specific symptoms into account to find the best path to wellness. Plans of treatment can require several visits to ensure proper healing, and it is always recommended to return regularly for maintenance care once your issue has been resolved. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
