Quick Guide to Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic care is a field dedicated to restoring balance and alignment throughout the body. One of the main techniques utilized to complete this is spinal adjustments. In this quick guide, Dr. Carlo and the team at Largo Injury Pain Relief Center in Largo, FL, explain what chiropractic adjustments are and how they help achieve these goals.

Understanding Spinal Alignment

When any one of your bones is misaligned, it puts stress and strain on the rest of the body. If you can imagine stacking several books on top of one another, you know that they need to be lined up well. Having one sitting too far to the left or right can put them at risk of falling over, especially if something bumps against them.

The bones of the body are also made to stack neatly on top of one another like the books. The difference is that the bones are surrounded by muscles, discs, nerves, and various other spinal components.

If one of the bones is out of alignment, these other components endure pressure and strain to hold the bones upright. This can lead to many different issues, including but not limited to:

  • Herniated discs
  • Nerve compression
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Muscle strains
  • Shoulder pain
  • Leg pain

Additionally, it can impact how you walk, as you are likely to rely more heavily on one side than the other. This can cause the joints to wear down more quickly, cause foot pain, and more.

Misalignment can also lead to various conditions and illnesses. The nerves are responsible for carrying messages from the brain to the body to ensure the rest of your body functions properly. When the nerves become compressed, these messages cannot make the journey they need to make.

Restoring Alignment Through Adjustments

Adjustments are a technique used to restore proper alignment. The chiropractor either uses their hands or an instrument to apply the necessary amount of force to put the bones back in their rightful place. As this occurs, it relieves pressure on the surrounding spinal column components, relieves pain, restores nerve function, improves range of motion, improves blood flow, and more.
