Benefits of Getting a Chiropractic Adjustment 

Playa Del Rey ChiropracticsAre you suffering from persistent back pain, spinal and joint damage? If so, you might benefit from a chiropractic adjustment. When you hear people talking about "back adjustments" they're referring to a specific type of hands-on therapy designed to help your overall performance by realigning and manipulating tight and painful joints.

It's not uncommon for people to also seek chiropractic care for nerve damage, knee pain, shoulder pain, headaches and migraines, hip alignments, or for relaxation. For over 20 years, our experienced chiropractor has helped patients repair, heal, and recover from their injuries. We choose long-term wellness over short-term results.

Why Would You Go to The Chiropractor?

A chiropractor is a skilled doctor who treats musculoskeletal injuries or conditions related to your body's structure. At our center we practice a traditional approach to wellness by moving away from painkillers and medications. Your body has a natural ability to mend through therapy.

Benefits of Visiting a Skilled Professional for Chronic Pain

  • An affordable alternative to surgery
  • Alleviates chronic migraine and headache pain
  • Promotes healthy sleeping patterns
  • Healthier digestion
  • Boosts energy

Consequences of Spinal Damage

People tend to seek out chiropractic adjustments for spinal damage impacting the area between their lower back and neck. The spinal cord is composed of nerves that connect your brain with the rest of the body. When damaged, it alters how it functions. Warning signs that the injury might be getting more critical include:

  • Poor or worsening circulation
  • Intense pressure near the neck
  • Lower back pain
  • Signs of imbalance
  • Feeling weak
  • Joint pain
  • Stiffness

The Process Behind Getting a Chiropractic Adjustment 

Before beginning treatment at Advanced Spine, we will sit down for a mandatory consultation. It will include a simple exam to assess the extent of your injury and an overview of your family medical history, which helps us create the right treatment plan.

Adjustments are not recommended for patients with the following conditions:

  • Diagnosed with cancer
  • High risk of getting a stroke
  • Experiencing weakness, tingling, and numbness
  • Have pre-existing medical conditions that interfere with treatment
  • Showing signs of an abnormality near the spine

If an adjustment is a suitable choice for you, we'll be able to begin treatment. A licensed professional will start by positioning you on the drop table. It will support your body as we start implementing guided techniques that push joints and muscles beyond their range of motion. The most you'll experience is a slight crack during the session, but you won't feel immense pain.

Depending on the extent of your spinal damage, we might incorporate chiropractic instruments for a more invigorating session.

The Goal of Treatment

Most patients feel immediate relief from symptoms after an adjustment. Whereas others warm up to therapy after the first few sessions. Our goal is to restore your health and get you back on your feet. We'll also instruct you on beneficial habits and practices to add to your daily routine to prevent the risk of future injuries.

How Long Will I Need to See a Chiropractor?

The most common question we receive is about the length of treatment. That depends on how you feel and the progress of your recovery. Patients often experience immediate results when we implement a multi-specialty approach. Chiropractic adjustments might also be paired with massage therapy, acupuncture, or physical therapy.
