4 Facts About Adjustments

Perhaps you’ve heard of adjustments, but you’re still not quite sold on the idea that they can do anything for you. Or maybe you are a bit intimidated by the idea of being twisted and “popped.” Regardless of your apprehensions, Dr. Werner and the team at Werner Family Chiropractic in Rock Hill, SC, share some facts about chiropractic adjustments below to help ease your uncertainty.

1. There Are Several Types of Adjustments

Adjustments come in several forms – in fact, there are more than 100 techniques. There are those that provide a nice “popping” sound, which many chiropractic patients enjoy. However, there are also much gentler techniques.

One is performed with the help of a small, handheld instrument. It is known as the Activator Method. This instrument provides a quick, controlled amount of force to the precise treatment location without any need for twisting or manual contact. If you prefer a gentler approach, our chiropractor will be happy to accommodate your needs.

2. They Are Safe for All Ages

Thanks to the gentle adjustments, people of all ages can benefit from chiropractic care. Even small infants and adults with more frail bodies can get adjusted safely.

Pregnant women can also receive adjustments to help relieve the pain and discomfort of carrying a new life. In addition to the gentle adjustments, the Webster Technique is another type of adjustment Dr. Werner can use.

3. They Can Relieve Various Types of Pain

Restoring alignment and balance can benefit you from head to toe. Adjustments are used to treat the following and more:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Back pain
  • Hip, elbow, and knee pain
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Sciatica
  • Herniated discs
  • Nerve compression and more

4. They Can Improve Your General Health

Adjustments are very effective at relieving pain, but they can do so much more than that. Restoring alignment helps relieve pressure on the nerves, which improves nerve function. It also helps remove restrictions that might be impeding blood flow. All of this can lead to better general health for you and your whole family.
