What Is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a core aspect of chiropractic care. The goal of the adjustment is to return a vertebra or joint to its appropriate position. This helps correct spinal alignment and improves your body’s range of motion and general function. Dr. Frederick may use one or several adjustments to get the necessary results for your bones to return and remain to their normal fit.
What to Expect During a Chiropractic Adjustment
During your initial visit, we will review your medical history and ask you questions about your symptoms. We may require x-rays to help us determine the appropriate treatment for your situation. If you previously had medical imagery or other tests done, we recommend you bring the documents to your appointment. You will also receive a thorough physical examination with a specific focus on your spine.
During a typical chiropractic adjustment, Dr. Frederick instructs you how to place your body according to which area he needs to treat. Lying facedown on the chiropractic table is common to help your provider use their hands to apply controlled force to return a joint to its normal range of motion. There is no need to worry if you hear a popping or cracking sound as your chiropractor restores your joint to its appropriate position.
At the end of your appointment, we may recommend at-home treatment such as the application of ice or heat, what activities or positions to avoid, and some stretches to support your healing. If you require follow-up appointments, we will also schedule them.
