What Is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

Chiropractic adjustment is the practice of manipulating joint components to bring them back into their optimal alignment. This is necessary when these structures fall (or is pushed) out of their natural alignment due to age-related physical changes, longstanding postural issues, or traumatic events such as auto accident injuries. This problem is called subluxation, and it can even occur in infants during passage through the birth canal. Alignment errors can lead to a number of complaints, from chronic muscle strain and pinched nerves to systemic ailments (a side effect of poor nerve communication).

Chiropractic adjustments guide errant joint components back into their proper place, allowing the joints to function more normally while also relieving nerve impingement and correcting your body symmetry. The traditional manual form of this technique involves the application of high-velocity, low amplitude force in a highly precise manner. Chiropractic adjustments are administered to treat conditions such as:

  • Acute injuries
  • Sciatica (leg pain, tingling, numbness etc.)
  • Cervical radiculopathy (sciatica-like symptoms in the upper extremities)
  • Chronic neck, back, or extremity pain
  • Internal organ dysfunction
  • Systemic problems such as hypertension or digestive problems
  • Headaches and migraines

Musculoskeletal Adjustment Sessions From Our Chiropractor in Naperville

Our chiropractor in Naperville, Dr. Tim Erickson, will perform a thorough musculoskeletal exam and intake interview before administering any kind of care, including chiropractic adjustments. Once the exact source of your trouble has been isolated, the appropriate adjustments will be made to the structures in question -- which may not be where you're feeling the pain. For instance, an adjustment that relieves a pinched nerve in your neck may relieve chronic tension headaches or shoulder pain.

Your first chiropractic session may take 30 minutes or so, with follow-up sessions taking less time. Most chiropractic sessions cause little to no discomfort. Multiple chiropractic adjustments, often accompanied by other therapies such as massage or acupuncture, usually yield the best results.
