What is Spinal Manipulation & How Can It Help Me?

Written By Pro Care Health Center on April 20, 2020

chiropractic treatment care adjustmentSpinal manipulation is a technique that chiropractors use to apply a controlled, sudden force to a joint within your spine. This form of chiropractic care is used to reduce pain and inflammation, relieve pressure on joints, and improve healing. 

Here are three of the top benefits that spinal manipulation provides.

1. Natural Pain Relief  

Pain medications are standard for sciatica treatment as well as generalized, lower back, and neck pain. Prescription drugs are especially common, following an accident or injury. Yet narcotics and opioids can lead to dependency and prescription drug abuse. Chiropractic treatments offer a natural way to relieve pain and reduce medication dependency. 

2. Greater Range of Motion and Flexibility 

Spinal manipulation can help you improve your range of motion and flexibility, especially after an accident or injury. Chiropractic care reduces inflammation, breaks up scar tissues, and realigns the spine into its proper position. 

3. Reduced Risk of Chronic Pain Following an Injury 

After an injury, you may experience low back pain, neck pain, stiffness, and a loss of range of motion or flexibility. Many of these symptoms are caused by scar tissue that begins to form in muscle tissues. Untreated, scar tissue can lead to chronic pain and long-term damage. Spinal manipulation breaks up scar tissue, providing short-term and long-term relief. 

Conditions That Benefit From Spinal Manipulation 

Spinal manipulation can be used to relieve several symptoms of several chronic and acute conditions. Some of the conditions that spinal manipulation is used to treat include: 

  • Sciatica treatment.  
  • Headache treatment. 
  • Low back pain. 
  • Neck pain. 
  • Arthritis.
