What Does a Chiropractic Spinal Adjustment Do?

May 09/2019 By
0 Comment

A question I get asked a lot is “what happens when you adjust my spine” The answer is always “so many things!” So, I will do my best to explain what exactly happens when you get your spine adjusted. The first concept we need to nail down is not what, but WHY. Why do we adjust certain areas of the spine? A chiropractor through various methods assesses the spine to determine which joints are “stuck”, “restricted”, “subluxated” or simply put, are not moving as they are supposed to.

This is a question that I get everyday in practice from both current and prospective patients. It is a really good question and it can sometimes be difficult to answer, so I will do my best to be as straight forward as possible. The reason it is difficult to answer is because in both professions, chiropractic and physiotherapy, there is no one way to practice. You may find 3 chiropractors that all do different things and the same goes for physical therapists.  It is important to not make your decision based on what profession they are in, but based on…

Happy Primavera all. I learned from one of my Italian patients that “Happy Primavera” means the first of spring. Here I thought it was a pasta! As the nicer weather SLOWLY approaches us, one of the things that I would like to caution you about is the way you jump into spring cleanup. We all want to get out and get things done around the house or yard and elsewhere. The problem is that many of us jump in and are going full speed because of this nice weather.
