If you have never looked into the world of chiropractic spinal manipulation, you could be missing out on an important modality for helping you enjoy optimal health, wellness, comfort, and injury recovery. Chiropractic adjustments to the spine ease pain, improve mobility, reduce stiffness, balance the nervous system and assist your body to return to a better state of health. That's why we're happy to offer this non-surgical healing modality at our chiropractic clinic.
The Purpose of Chiropractic Spinal Adjustment
The human spine is composed of tissue and bone which protect the enclosed brain and spinal cord. It also holds us upright and allows us to bend and twist. It also hosts the spinal cord, with major nerves running through the vertebral spaces to serve the rest of the body.
Unfortunately, many problems can afflict this delicate combination of moving and non-moving parts. Even the smallest joint imbalance can limit joint motion, causing neck or back pain. Bulging discs can press against nerve roots, producing neurological discomfort or weakness in the extremities. An unbalanced spine may throw the rest of your body out of balance, leaving you with chronic aches and pains. Pressure on spinal nerves causes an inability of the nerve to function perfectly. Because nerves go to every tissue in the body, including organs, an imperfectly working nerve can result in an imperfectly working organ with resulting health issues.
Chiropractic spinal adjustment can relieve these problems. Dr. Thorburn uses manual or instrument-assisted techniques that deliver small but focused force to the spine and other joints, shifting them back into position. By normalizing your spine and nervous system function you will experience pain relief, more flexibility, better health and an improved quality of life.
What to Expect
Chiropractic spinal manipulation can be performed safely on most individuals of all ages, including newborns. An initial evaluation analyzes your spine, joints, nerves, reflexes and vital signs checking for any imbalances that may be producing your health challenges. Thorburn Chiropractic & Wellness Center will ensure that you are a good candidate for chiropractic adjustment before proceeding. Repeated chiropractic adjustments help the body accept the changes in joint position, although you may feel substantial relief almost immediately.
