Spinal Adjustments in Lancaster, CA
One of the most common procedures performed by our doctors of chiropractic is known as a "spinal adjustment," also known as "spinal manipulation."
The purpose of a spinal adjustment is to restore the flexibility and mobility of a “subluxated” vertebra of the spine.
What is vertebral subluxation?
The term "subluxation" is applied to a vertebra that has lost its normal position in relation to neighboring vertebrae. As a result, this misalignment causes increased wear and tear on the surrounding muscles, tissues, ligaments, and discs which can lead to pain, tenderness, inflammation, decreased mobility and muscle spasms.
How is this misalignment treated?
By manually applying a controlled force into the joint that has become stiff and restricted, a chiropractor is able to help the body naturally realign itself back into its natural and proper position.
Spinal adjustments are performed to help treat a variety of conditions, including:
- Chronic muscle pain
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Traumatic Injuries
Chiropractic spinal adjustments are considered to be a natural, safe and non-invasive alternative for the treatment of back pain.
At Frye Chiropractic, our skilled doctors of chiropractic take your individual factors such as: height, weight and bone/muscle structure in to account to determine the most effective adjustment procedure for you.
Adjustments typically do not cause any pain or discomfort, however it is common for patients to experience some mild soreness or aching following an adjustment which can easily be relieved by using a heating or ice pack.
