FAQ About Chiropractic Care
A chiropractor can tell if your pain is due to misaligned vertebrae and realign your spine to its proper position. The specialist uses his hands to apply gentle pressure on the affected region in order to correct the underlying issue to restore or enhance joint function, which provides relief from pain. With gentle and controlled thrust of the hands, the specialist is able to correct subluxation (misaligned vertebrae) and provide pain relief.
Chiropractic manipulation or adjustment is a highly controlled procedure that involves only minimal force and gentle pressure. It rarely causes discomfort. Most patients feel relief immediately following treatment.
