What to Expect During Chiropractic Care and Treatment?
During chiropractic treatment, when a chiropractic manipulation is performed, and a joint stretches, you may hear and feel a “pop” or “crack” sound which feels good. This is normal and called cavitation. Cavitation is the release of air bubbles from synovial fluid and a vacuum-like effect that allows a further range of motion. Over minutes to hours, the air bubbles diffuse back into the synovial fluid.
Conditions That Chiropractic Care Can Help
Chiropractic helps many musculoskeletal conditions, conditions involving joints, posture, nerves, cartilage, aches, and pains, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Some of the more common conditions we help include:
- Knee Pain
- Rotator Cuff Strain
- Hip Pain
Chiropractic Care and Treatment
Chiropractic care and treatment begins with manipulation, which works by releasing muscle and joint tightness, improving joint mobility, balancing joint motion, and correcting for misaligned joints. Polypeptides, enkephalins, and endorphins, are released with cavitation (the cracking or popping sound) and act as pain relievers and assist in immune system modulation. For this reason, patients often experience immediate relief with manipulation.
If you have an imbalanced posture, manipulation of your neck, upper back, and shoulders may help restore posture by treating the imbalance from a varied approach. Just stretching neck muscles has limited benefits, but with manipulation, your nervous system will reduce muscle tension, and help better position your joints to reduce joint stress. Muscles are often tight in RESPONSE to a restricted joint.
The techniques used in the course of chiropractic care and treatment include:
- Spinal manipulation
- Flexion distraction manipulation
- Diversified technique
- Traction and long axis distraction
Aligned Medical Group provides patients with solution-focused chiropractic care in Malvern. After chiropractic treatment, patients have the ability to live their lives to the fullest.
FAQs About Chiropractic Care and Treatment
What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractors are licensed physicians who attend 3-5 years of doctorate training following 4 years of prerequisite coursework, similar to pre-medicine. Graduates must then pass state boards exams and maintain continuing education for licensure. While graduates are qualified to be Primary Care Physicians, perform minor surgeries, and prescribe medications, state boards decide the facets within which they may practice, state to state. Most states permit chiropractors to order and interpret lab work and diagnostic tests such as Xray, CT scans, MRIs, and Ultrasound in the course of chiropractic care and treatment.
Is Chiropractic Care And Manipulation Safe?
Every year, millions of people seek chiropractic care and treatment in the United States. When provided by a Board-Certified and licensed Chiropractor, Chiropractic treatment is considered very safe. Our trained professional knows how to use gentle techniques and understands where caution may be necessary. Chiropractors can work on soft tissues to increase the mobility of your muscles and joints.
It is important to tell your Chiropractor if you’ve had a recent fever or illness, sprains, strains or fractures, trauma, osteoporosis, or cancer.
