Guide to Understanding Chiropractic Adjustments 

Chiropractic adjustments have been used for quite some time to treat various symptoms and sources of pain. Despite this fact, they are still not fully understood by the public, which means many people aren’t experiencing the benefits. Dr. Arconati and our team at Oakville Health & Rehab Center in St. Louis County, MO want to ensure everyone gets the care they need, so we’ve put together this guide explaining chiropractic adjustments.

What Exactly Are Adjustments, and What Do They Do?

Your spinal column is an intricate system made up of bones, joints, discs, nerves, muscles, and more. Each of these has a proper place and a specific role to play in your daily life.

Unfortunately, various habits and events can force bones out of their proper place, which is known as a misalignment. When this occurs, it impacts each of the surrounding spinal column components, which leads to pain and various other symptoms.

Adjustments are a technique employed to restore alignment. The chiropractor applies controlled force either by hand or with the help of an instrument to the misaligned area to push the bones back into place. Once proper alignment is restored, it relieves the pressure and strain on the surrounding components.

What Are Adjustments Used to Treat?

A misalignment can cause many different issues and symptoms that adjustments can help treat. These include but are not limited to:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Pinched nerves
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hip pain
  • Improper nerve function
  • Balance issues
  • Limited range of motion
  • Posture issues

Adjustments are also commonly used to treat patients who have sustained auto accident injuries, sports injuries, and work injuries. Additionally, adjustments aren’t just used for pain. They are also beneficial in achieving and maintaining general health and wellness.
