chiropractic adjustment

Chiropractic care offers patients a viable approach to managing a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, which is good news for the millions of Americans who visit a chiropractor each year.  At the office of Cynthia Ochi, D.C., serving those in the greater Wading River, NY, and Long Island vicinity, our noninvasive chiropractic services recognize your body’s natural healing abilities, focusing on managing underlying causes of mobility and pain and related symptoms.

What are Chiropractic Adjustments?

Chiropractic adjustments (a.k.a. manipulations) refer to a hands-on technique that is used to realign your musculoskeletal system by realigning your spine. According to chiropractic theory, a misaligned spinal column will not function optimally, and the misalignment is often found to be the root cause of a variety of health issues that may manifest anywhere in the body, like -

  • Mobility Issues.
  • Pain.
  • Loss of Capacity.

The objective of a chiropractic adjustment is to encourage proper spinal movement and alignment. A correctly aligned spinal column supports your body’s natural healing abilities, leading to the benefits of improved overall health. The result is a reduction (or removal) of pain and discomfort, inflammation, nerve compression, and muscle tension.

It is noted that spinal manipulations can be done with or without the use of a specialized instrument. However, this decision is typically made by the chiropractor after they have had the opportunity to determine the best approach based on the individual and the condition being treated.

Conditions That Can Be Treated Effectively by Chiropractic Adjustments

One of chiropractic health’s core principles is proper spinal alignment, which supports the optimal function of one’s spine, nervous system, and musculoskeletal system. 

Chiropractors offer an alternative healthcare option focusing on the interrelatedness between the spine, nervous system, and overall body function. They recognize that body issues and pain often result from dysfunction in one part of the body that impacts other parts. 

Common conditions treated by chiropractic adjustments or manipulations include –

  • Back Pain.
  • Neck Pain.
  • Neuropathy.
  • Bulging/Herniated Discs.
  • Sciatica.
  • Headaches and Migraines.
  • Whiplash and more.
