Chiropractic adjustments provide patients with pain management treatments using a particular procedure conducted by our chiropractor using his hands to apply sudden force and controlled pressure to the spinal joints. Our chiropractor uses adjustments to help improve the patient’s spinal motion and potentially help improve the body’s overall physical function. In addition, our chiropractor at Sundstrom Chiropractic Clinic in Elk Grove, CA, can help patients seeking alternative pain treatments, including spinal manipulation.

What Are Chiropractic Adjustments? 

Chiropractic adjustments are a method of pain management treatment using hands-on spinal manipulation to return the body to its natural alignment. Keeping the body aligned can help balance the musculoskeletal system, potentially reducing stress on joints, ligaments, and other soft tissue, while providing pain relief and helping the body naturally heal itself.

Why Chiropractic Adjustments Are Done

Chiropractic adjustments can help reduce pressure on the musculoskeletal system, providing relief for lower back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, and headaches.

What to Expect during a Chiropractic Adjustment

During your initial visit with our chiropractor, he will ask questions about your health history and conduct a limited physical exam.

In the chiropractic adjustment, our chiropractor might lie you down on a specially designed, padded table and, using his hands, apply controlled, sudden force to your spinal joints. You may hear cracking or popping sounds, but this is normal and often heard when the gasses trapped in the joints are released.

Chiropractic adjustments are usually not painful, but some patients might experience minor side effects, including stiffness or some soreness. Results from the adjustment can vary, and it is best to speak with a chiropractor if you have additional questions.

What Are the Risks of a Chiropractic Adjustment?

Though minimal risks, some patients have experienced minor side effects after a chiropractic adjustment. These side effects may include soreness in the area affected. Speak with our chiropractor to discuss any concerns about the risks and learn more about how our chiropractor can help reduce the risks. These risks are usually only a problem if you have certain conditions affecting your bones or your back so be sure to tell our chiropractor about any beck conditions you may have.
