How does Chiropractic work?
A normal healthy spine column is made up of vertebrae that not only line up properly but also move freely without restriction. If vertebrae are locked out of position, swelling, inflammation and nerve irritation will occur. This will cause pain and reduced range of motion.
The chiropractor is a specialist at finding and correcting these areas of joint restriction and using a gentle chiropractic adjustment to restore normal movement. This removes irritation and often provides relief almost immediately.
What is that popping sound?
The popping sound is a release of gas from the joint that was locked out of alignment. It is usually painless and accompanied by a release of spasm and pain.
Are adjustments safe?
Yes, gentle chiropractic adjustments are safe and effective. Dr. Migliarese takes extra care to be gentle and to relax the area being treated prior to the adjustment so very little force is required to make the adjustment.
