To start, a variety of healthcare professionals use spinal manipulation, including chiropractors. They use their hands or a device to apply a controlled force to a joint of the spine. Additionally, the form of manipulation used will depend on the amount of force applied. The goal of spinal manipulation is to relieve pain, fix alignment issues, and improve physical functioning.

Do I Need it?

First of all, Chiropractors use quick, short thrusts of force when they use their hands or devices to apply controlled force to the joints.  Furthermore, these thrusts can often times cause an audible “crack” in the joint, which is normal and indicates a release within the joint. The amount of force the chiropractor applies is customized to the patient’s comfort level and their treatment area.  Additionally, this is a safe and effective technique to treat and relieve pain but rest assured, your symptoms will be assessed to determine if spinal manipulation is the right option for you.  Chiropractors practice different techniques for spinal manipulation to treat ailments such as:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Headaches

Is it Safe?

It is a safe option for treating back pain.  Back pain is one of the most common reasons people seek chiropractic treatment.  Chiropractors will manually apply thrusts to the dysfunctional joints along the spine to restore function, and alleviate pain.  However, when a patient was in an auto accident, different techniques may be beneficial.   Additionally, to treat shoulder pain and dysfunction, the chiropractor performs manual thrusts to the thoracic spine, upper and middle back region, to correct shoulder stability and improve range of motion.
