Chiropractic Adjustments Q & A

What are chiropractic adjustments? 

Chiropractic adjustments improve physical function and reduce or relieve musculoskeletal pain. The techniques chiropractors use precisely adjust your vertebrae and joints, correcting any misalignments. Chiropractic care also helps reduce inflammation and promotes healing.

Your One Life Chiropractic provider uses their hands or specially designed instruments to perform chiropractic adjustments. They direct carefully calculated force to the treatment site, delivering swift, accurate thrusts with the utmost precision. This results in the following:

  • Spinal imbalance correction
  • Spine stabilization
  • Improved mobility
  • Range of motion restoration
  • Increased strength

Your chiropractor completes a thorough assessment and diagnostic testing, such as X-rays, to discover the causes of your condition. Then they design a solution-based treatment plan that helps you feel, move, and live better.

Are there different kinds of chiropractic adjustments?

The One Life Chiropractic chiropractors use various techniques to perform adjustments, such as:

Diversified technique

Hands-on chiropractic adjustments are usually high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) thrusts typical of the diversified technique.

Thompson technique

The Thompson or drop table technique uses specialized treatment tables. Sections of the tables drop down to help the joint move when your chiropractor performs an HVLA thrust.

Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM)

With the Graston Technique® and other IASTM treatments, your chiropractor makes adjustments using specially designed instruments rather than their hands.

These chiropractic adjustments enable One Life Chiropractic’s skilled doctors to correct spinal misalignments safely and virtually painlessly.

What can chiropractic adjustments treat?

Chiropractic adjustments can help patients with numerous musculoskeletal injuries and chronic conditions. Orthopedic surgeons often recommend chiropractic to their patients before considering surgery because it’s fast, effective, and noninvasive.

One Life Chiropractic treats multiple conditions using chiropractic adjustments, including:

  • Neck pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Car accident injuries
  • Muscle pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Temporomandibular disorder (TMD)
  • Sciatica
  • Leg pain
  • Herniated disc
  • Whiplash
  • Problems sleeping
  • Scoliosis
  • Shoulder pain
  • Arthritis
  • Headaches and migraines

Chiropractic adjustments address your pain’s cause rather than masking it with medication. This is a far safer, more effective approach.

Are chiropractic adjustments suitable for children?

Pediatric chiropractic adjustments are safe for patients of all ages, including children. Correcting musculoskeletal abnormalities is essential to your child’s healthy development.

Without treatment, subluxations (spinal misalignments) and other injuries children sustain can cause problems later in life. One Life Chiropractic’s experienced doctors perform chiropractic adjustments that ensure you and your child feel confident and comfortable during and after treatment.
