The Basics of a Chiropractic Adjustments
Many of us suffer from back pain and don’t know what is happening or what to do next. In this video, a chiropractor shows us the basics of the spine and what he looks for when performing chiropractic treatment.
One of the misconceptions that he explains is when some chiropractors say that a vertebra is misaligned. This is not the case, and if that was true, you wouldn’t go to a chiropractor to fix that.
But, what he looks for during an adjustment is for vertebrae and joints that have trouble moving. When this happens, a person will experience discomfort.
He then explains that the popping sound you associate a back adjustment with is the same sound that you hear when you crack your knuckles. The only thing that happens is built-up gas is released. Not bones breaking.
A chiropractor is a good way to relieve back pain. They use natural body motions to stretch your back so it feels better at that moment. If you suffer from chronic back pain, it might be a good idea to schedule weekly visits with a chiropractor who can help you feel a little better!
