What Chiropractic Adjustment Does for the Body

When your spinal column is out of alignment for any reason, your entire body can be negatively affected. Dislocated vertebrae, discs or vertebral joints can cause pain in various ways, from throwing your body weight off kilter and straining your muscles to putting pressure on nerve tissue near the spine. In addition to pain, tingling, numbness and other discomforts, impinged nerves can also fail to relay signals correctly, including signals that govern everyday functions. This can play a role in all kinds of physical issues, from digestive health to immune system strength.

Chiropractic care can relieve strains, pressures, pain and stiffness by correcting the alignment problem at the core of it all. By restoring mobility to the affected component, we can also relieve nerve impingement so the nervous system can do its job properly. That's why chiropractic care is prescribed for such diverse situations as:

  • Neck and back pain

  • Headaches and migraines

  • Chronic pain conditions

  • Sciatica

  • Ear infections

  • Asthma

  • Sports, work and auto accident injuries

  • Pregnancy support

  • Preventative wellness care

The Many Faces of Chiropractic Care

No one treatment method is ideal for every condition. That's why your chiropractor in Birmingham AL employs several types of chiropractic care, including:

  • Diversified - The traditional manual adjustment technique for correcting a vertebral misalignment 

  • Thompson drop table - A special segmented table that optimizes the position of different parts of the body for adjustment

  • Cox flexion-distraction - Another table-based technique, this time using flexion-distraction force to treat disc problems

  • Myofascial release - A manual technique similar to massage that releases tight knots of tissue called trigger points that refer plain throughout the body

  • Positional release - A technique that utilizes specific body motions to relieve the tender points created by protective muscle spasms.

  • Graston technique - An instrument-based technique that helpsus pinpoint and release collections of scar tissue (adhesions) that limit muscle movement and healing.
