The spine is made of vertebrae and discs that neatly stack around the spinal column. Any number of things can cause these vertebrae to become misaligned. A chiropractor has the training necessary to perform chiropractic adjustments to relieve the problems this can cause. The team at Allegheny Physical Medicine is here to help Bethel Park, PA area residents feel their best.
The vertebrae are designed to stack neatly on one another while offering support to the spinal column. Discs provide cushion and support between the vertebrae to allow for mobility.
Any jarring action, sudden bump, or general use can cause the vertebrae to misalign. The most common causes are accidents at work, carrying heavy loads at home, falls, or car accidents. When these happen, the vertebrae can press against a disc causing it to bulge, and/or nerves can get pinched.
This can lead to pain in the immediate area, tingling in the extremities, or a burning sensation in the sciatic nerve.
Our team can provide back pain relief from spinal misalignment with chiropractic adjustments.
An adjustment is a simple procedure in which a chiropractor uses controlled force to manually realign the vertebrae along the spinal column. The chiropractor will place their hands in a specific area and press things into place.
Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments
The premiere benefit of chiropractic adjustments is back pain relief. In addition to this, people who get regular chiropractic adjustments experience:
- Improved posture
- Improved mobility
- Reduced pain
- Reduced swelling/inflammation
- Fewer headaches
- Quicker recovery time from injuries
Chiropractic adjustments improve the blood flow and signal between nerve endings. This has helped people experience reduced blood pressure, improved breathing, and reduced symptoms of the problems that those issues caused.
By realigning the spinal column, muscle groups no longer have to work extra to compensate for the offset weight distribution, however minor. This relieves a lot of tension aches in the back muscles, shoulders, and neck. The lack of tension also reduces headaches.
Improved mobility and reduced pain have helped many people become more active.
