What Are Chiropractic Adjustments?

  • These are therapeutic procedures in which licensed chiropractors use their hands to apply controlled pressure to one’s spinal joints. These adjustments manipulate the spine to boost spinal motion and enhance your general physical function.

  • Even though your vertebral column is a continuous structure, it has several parts. Chiropractic adjustments are necessary to ensure that these parts are aligned for proper body function. When these adjustments are made correctly, they are often painless. However, you may feel slight discomfort during and shortly after treatment. The good news is that patients find relief early on in their treatments, hence resuming daily activities with ease.

How to Prepare

There is no special preparation needed before these treatments. Our doctors will ask you a few questions concerning your health and then do a physical exam. This exam focuses on the spine. Once the doctor understands where the problem lies, treatment can start.

During a typical treatment, you will be asked to lie in a particular position on the chiropractic table. Our doctors will then use their hands to apply controlled but sudden pressure to your joints. If you hear cracking or popping sounds, there is no need to fret. No bone has been broken. This happens as your doctor moves your joints. After treatment, your doctor may also suggest a few things to help with treatment. They include:

  • Exercises and stretches

  • Heat or ice therapy

  • Proper ergonomics to improve posture

  • Ways to relax muscles


Recovery Time

  • Most people start seeing some benefit of chiropractic treatments almost immediately after treatment. There might be some slight discomfort at first, but this usually goes away in less than 24 hours. The goal of chiropractic care is to restore your general health long term. For this reason, allow our doctors in Raleigh, NC, to help you with any joint or muscle discomfort you may be feeling. Also, inform our doctors if you have been suffering from chronic pain. It is essential that we rule out any serious issues that may require treatment aside from chiropractic care.
