Is a procedure in which trained specialists (chiropractors) use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint. The goal of this procedure, also known as spinal manipulation, is to improve spinal motion and improve your body’s physical function.
Low back pain, neck pain and headache are the most common problems for which people seek chiropractic adjustment.
Chiropractic adjustment is safe when it’s performed by someone trained and licensed to deliver chiropractic care. Serious complications associated with chiropractic adjustment are overall rare, but may include:
A herniated disk or a worsening of an existing disk herniation
Compression of nerves in the lower spinal column (cauda equina syndrome)
A certain type of stroke (vertebral artery dissection) after neck manipulation
Don’t seek chiropractic adjustment if you have:
Numbness, tingling or loss of strength in an arm or leg
Cancer in your spine
An increased risk of stroke
A known bone abnormality in the upper neck
How you prepare
No special preparation is required before a chiropractic adjustment.
During the procedure
During a typical chiropractic adjustment, your chiropractor places you in specific positions to treat affected areas. Often, you’re positioned lying facedown on a specially designed, padded chiropractic table. The chiropractor uses his or her hands to apply a controlled, sudden force to a joint, pushing it beyond its usual range of motion. You may hear popping or cracking sounds as your chiropractor moves your joints during the treatment session.
After the procedure
Some people experience minor side effects for a few days after chiropractic adjustment. These may include headache, fatigue or pain in the parts of the body that were treated. Not everyone responds to chiropractic adjustments. A lot depends on your particular situation. If your symptoms don’t begin to improve after several weeks of treatments, chiropractic adjustment might not be the best option for you.
