Chiropractic adjustments are a type of manual therapy that treats various musculoskeletal conditions. At Health First Chiropractic in Puyallup, Dr. Croxford uses his hands to apply force to the joints, muscles, and tissues of the body to relieve pain and improve function. Our chiropractor is trained to treat conditions such as chronic back pain, neck pain, headaches, and more using chiropractic care.
What Conditions Can Chiropractic Adjustments Treat?
A chiropractor can use chiropractic adjustments to treat various conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system. Some of the common conditions that we treat with adjustments include:
Chronic Back Pain
A chiropractor can relieve chronic back pain by adjusting the spine. Chronic back pain treatment with chiropractic adjustments is a non-invasive and drug-free approach that can provide relief from pain and improve function.
Chiropractic adjustments can also be used to treat neck pain. The neck is a common area for pain because it supports the head, which is very heavy. Adjustments can help relieve tension in the muscles and joints of the neck, providing relief from pain.
Headaches are another common condition that can be treated with chiropractic adjustments. Adjustments can relieve tension in the muscles and joints of the head and neck, which can lead to headaches.
What to Expect During Chiropractic Adjustments
During chiropractic adjustments, our chiropractor will use his hands to apply force to your body's joints, muscles, and tissues. You may feel a popping or cracking sound as they do this. We will then move your body into different positions to stretch and relax the muscles.
The number of chiropractic adjustments you need will depend on your condition. Chronic back pain may require more frequent adjustments than other conditions. Adjustments are typically performed weekly or bi-weekly until the condition improves.
The Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments
Chiropractic adjustments offer many benefits, including relief from pain, improved function, and increased range of motion. Adjustments are a safe and effective treatment for many conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system. If you are suffering from chronic back pain, neck pain, headaches, or another condition, chiropractic adjustments may be able to help.
