Here at O’Briant Chiropractic Health Center, we specialize in chiropractic adjustments.
A chiropractic adjustment will make your body feel amazing. Other terminology for chiropractic adjustments are as follows: chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation. The adjustment refers to the manipulation of the vertebrae that has abnormal movements and are not functioning properly. A chiropractic adjustment will assist in alleviating these issues.
The goal of chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation, increase the range of motion, reduce nerve irritability, and improve mobility. As a compassionate and board certified chiropractic internist, Dr. O’Briant will work with you to relieve this pain and get you back to being pain free every single day.
A chiropractic adjustment to regions of the back is applied to the vertebra in order to relieve pain, discomfort, and spasms in the surrounding muscles. Many times the adjustment is performed manually or with the doctors hands. Other times, Dr. O’Briant will incorporate an Arthrostim electric instrument to make the corrections. No matter what technique is used, each procedure is thoroughly explained so that the patient is comfortable and no extra pain is produced.
Your treatment plan may include other therapies. These include traction or stretching to the neck and lower back regions, electrical muscle stimulation for pain, rehabilitation exercises for the muscles and joints around the back, as well as trigger point therapy for muscle pain.
Although many patients visit our office and have an adjustment and treatment when something feels out of alignment, a regular visit can help you avoid any pain in the future and keep your body feeling optimal.
