A chiropractic adjustment is just one of many tools chiropractors have at their disposal to relieve pain and discomfort and bring the body back into balance. Injuries and illnesses can lead to chronic pain and long-term discomfort. Adjustments can be used to realign the body to treat pain and dysfunction. After an injury or illness, inflammation can settle in the body. When this happens, movement is restricted, which can lead to stiff muscles and joints.
What Are the Benefits of an Adjustment
Chiropractic adjustments do more than realign the musculoskeletal structure of the body. With an injury or illness inflammation can force muscles and connective tissues out of place. A chiropractic adjustment "adjusts" the bones and muscles back into their natural position.
Deep tissue massage is often used in conjunction with an adjustment to strengthen the muscles and tendons so they are better able to hold the skeletal structures in their proper position. Repeatedly adjusting an injured area will allow it to heal naturally. Because a chiropractic adjustment encourages the body to heal itself, the healing is more complete and you are less prone to injury than before.
Alignment and Natural Balance
When your chiropractor performs an adjustment, even the subtlest movements work to restore balance and realign the structures within your body. If the adjustments are performed immediately after the injury occurs, restoring that delicate balance encourages a more complete healing. It also allows the healing to occur much faster, especially when you combine deep tissue massage and physical therapy in the treatment plan.
Every technique your chiropractor uses work together to elicit a healing response that results in increased strength and improved general well-being. Maintaining the body's delicate balance ensures that not only the physical body and its many components work efficiently, but it also ensures the mind has what it needs as well.
