Strength Within Chiropractic specializes in chiropractic adjustments.

A chiropractic adjustment is also known as a chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation. An adjustment is the manipulation of vertebrae that move abnormally or are not functioning properly. A chiropractic adjustment will assist in alleviating these issues.

The goal of chiropractic treatment is to reduce subluxation (spinal misalignment), increase range of motion, reduce nerve irritability, and improve mobility. Our compassionate and qualified chiropractor will work with you to relieve any discomfort and get you back to a pain-free lifestyle.

A chiropractic adjustment involves high velocity thrusts applied to the vertebra. This relieves discomfort and spasms in the surrounding muscles. Adjustments also release joint cavitation, which is caused by the release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide. This is why we experience the “cracking” or “popping” noise during an adjustment!

Although it’s common to visit the chiropractor and have an adjustment when something feels out of alignment, a regular visit will help to prevent any future pain and keep your body feeling great consistently.

If you are having one of those days when you are not in the best mood, a visit to the chiropractor may actually help! Your body will feel much better and more relaxed after an adjustment.
