Is there Any Science Behind the Chiropractic Adjustment?

Chiropractor Chapel Hill, NC

Clinical science demonstrates several crucial benefits patients receive from chiropractic adjustment to the spine and extremities. These benefits include pain reduction, lessened muscle spasms, improved joint biomechanics, and an easing of inflammation. Additionally, patients see improvements in their posture and overall body balance and strength. Patients who get regular chiropractic care stand taller with less pain. There is more than adequate science to demonstrate various conditions for which chiropractic care may be beneficial, such as back pain, headaches, numbness, shoulder pain, hip pain, and fibromyalgia. There are many benefits from spinal adjustment, aka manipulative therapy, provided by chiropractic physicians. Osteopathic doctors and physical therapists take post-graduate weekend seminars to learn how to adjust patients to offer this advantageous treatment to their clients. Millions of patients worldwide receive hands-on adjustment therapy; most insurance plans cover this.

Doctors of Chiropractic are the primary health source for spinal adjustments. Their training emphasizes spinal adjustment therapy to help resolve health problems throughout the body. They are proficient in other areas, such as exercise and nutrition, and applying physical therapy modalities such as TENS and therapeutic ultrasound. Still, chiropractic adjustment is the primary treatment they study and use to treat their patients.

DCs or doctors of chiropractic understand that spinal subluxation or vertebral misalignment results in a panoply of pain and inflammation that, over time, will degrade the spine and affect the nervous system. Chiropractic adjustment is a vital treatment tool for correcting spinal subluxation, which helps patients get better naturally, reducing the need for other interventions. Nonetheless, doctors who do chiropractic refer to their medical colleagues when needed, just as they appreciate referrals from other health practitioners. Increasingly, chiropractic care is the first choice for many patients who recognize treatment can help prevent specific common future health problems.

At Acupractic Natural Healing Center in Chapel Hill, we offer chiropractic and acupuncture care to our patients. Licensed in both aspects of alternative medicine, Dr. Lisa Oskardmay, DC, LAc.understands the value of preventive care. Treatments always begin with taking a patient history, reviewing outside tests, postural evaluation, manual palpation of the spine and extremities, range of motion and neurological testing, and other assessments particular to the patient’s needs. Following a review of findings, treatment of affected areas starts with massage, followed by the application of gentle spinal adjustment to areas of subluxation. Many patients feel relief immediately as their nervous system incorporates beneficial changes; for others, change may take days to weeks to notice.

Dr.Oskardmay prescribes changes in activities of daily living to help patients progress more quickly and maintain spinal alignment adjustments. These changes may include ergonomic changes, exercise suggestions, or nutrition prescriptions. Since we started helping people look and feel better in 1995 through gentle, effective, hands-on, and Activator chiropractic adjusting, many people have come in for regular care because chiropractic works for them.
