Chiropractic Adjustment

Chiropractic Manipulation in Fair Lawn

The chiropractic adjustment is a basic treatment for neck and upper or lower back pain designed to bring the spine into proper alignment. An adjustment typically consists of a quick thrusting motion made by your chiropractor to return misaligned vertebrae to their proper positions, alleviating pain, discomfort, and many other symptoms. Maximized Living & Wellness Center offers comprehensive chiropractic pain reliever treatments for neck pain and back pain in Bergen County to restore spinal alignment and overall health and wellness.

After Your Adjustment

Spinal adjustment is a painless process that provides immediate relief from pain and discomfort for most patients. Knowing what to expect after your adjustment and how to relieve any minor soreness that may result will improve your experience and overall healing speed.

  • The most common side effect of adjustment is slight soreness or aching of the surrounding muscles. If you feel achy or sore, apply an ice pack to the affected area for relief.
  • Some patients report tingling or sensitivity after an adjustment. This is due to changes in the alignment of the spine, which can sometimes activate nerves that previously had trouble delivering signals to the brain. This effect is temporary and can also be relieved by the application of ice.
  • In most cases, patients feel immediately more relaxed and notice a reduction or elimination in discomfort and other symptoms. Keep in mind that adjustment is just one step in the healing process—your chiropractor simply made it easier for your body to care for itself. Multiple adjustments or further treatment may be needed to restore your body to full health.

Customizing Your Treatment Plan

Each patient is unique, meaning that each chiropractic adjustment plan should also be unique. The number of adjustment sessions you need is based upon your initial condition, as well as how quickly and how well you respond to chiropractic care. Treatment of acute injuries often requires a limited number of adjustments, while ongoing therapy for chronic conditions, such as scoliosis or fibromyalgia, may require more regular visits. Proper back alignment is essential for Sciatic pain relief, Spinal Decompression Therapy and other issues. In most cases, you only need chiropractic adjustment when you feel you need it—that is, when you are feeling pain or discomfort. If you are an athlete or work in conditions that keep you seated or standing for long periods of time, periodic preventive maintenance can help your body stay healthy, minimize lower back pain relief, and recover from any injuries you do sustain much more quickly and easily.
