Your spine is a central component of your overall health. Misalignments of the bones and tissues within the spine can cause a range of physical symptoms, including back pain and overall poor health. Spinal adjustment is a safe and effective chiropractic treatment to achieve healthy alignment of the spine and improved overall wellness.
What Happens During a Spinal Adjustment?
During a spinal adjustment, your chiropractor will correct any misalignments, or subluxations, of the vertebrae in your spine. This is achieved via the application of controlled force with your chiropractor’s hands while you sit or lie down. Spinal adjustment does not hurt; in fact, you may feel an immediate sensation of relief. You may also hear your joint “crack,” which is the release of gas as joint pressure is relieved. This is completely normal and expected.
Why Should I Get a Spinal Adjustment?
Spinal adjustment corrects subluxations caused by injuries to the tissues of the spine. Before an adjustment is suggested, your chiropractor will perform a thorough examination of the spine to determine if you have suffered any subluxations that can be addressed via manipulation. Untreated subluxations can limit your body’s range of motion and cause inflammation and irritation of the nerves, which result in pain in your back, neck, head, or extremities.
Are There Side Effects of Spinal Adjustment?
Chiropractic adjustment is a safe and often painless treatment. In some cases, muscle spasms around the site may cause minor discomfort following the adjustment. The most frequently reported side effect of an adjustment is minor soreness around the site for up to 24 hours post-treatment. The application of ice or a cold compress can reduce any discomfort during this time.

Massage therapy has been used since ancient times to promote relaxation and healing of the body and mind. There are many different forms of massage, ranging from relaxing Swedish massage to deep tissue massages that increase circulation and trigger the body’s natural healing processes. Each modality holds a range of health benefits you can enjoy following your treatment session.
Promotes Mental and Physical Relaxation
Many people envision massage as a pampering, relaxing experience that relieves stress, and they are right. Stress plays a significant role in your health, causing widespread problems that range from trouble sleeping to trouble conceiving. Massage is an excellent way to lessen physical and mental stress. The soothing strokes help tense muscles to relax, relieving back pain, headaches, and more. Massage also allows the mind to relax as well, reducing mental stress and anxiety for a more refreshed outlook on life.
Aids in Healing and Sports Training
Massage is an effective treatment to speed the body’s natural healing process and promote greater flexibility and range of motion. Techniques such as deep tissue massage and sports massage increase circulation and lymphatic drainage for stronger, healthier muscles. Massage is often a component of physical therapy treatment during recovery following an injury or after surgery to promote faster recovery and ease of movement.
Addresses Pain from Musculoskeletal Disorders
Conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, myofascial pain syndrome, and fibromyalgia cause chronic pain in joints or muscles. Massage improves nutrient flow throughout the body and eases the pain associated these conditions to restore healthy movement and improve quality of life. Treatment with massage also improves the quality of sleep in patients with chronic pain disorders, allowing them to sleep more soundly and wake feeling more refreshed.
