Chiropractic Adjustments Provided by a Blanchester, OH Chiropractor
At Health Quest, serving Blanchester, OH and the surrounding area, our chiropractor uses natural treatments like spinal decompression and chiropractic adjustments to relieve pain and improve our patients' quality of life. A spinal adjustment doesn't take a long time to perform, but it has a huge impact on most patients. Plus, it's beneficial for conditions related to the back as well as some that aren't directly connected with the back.
Definition of a Chiropractic Adjustment
A chiropractic adjustment is conducted by our skilled chiropractor using manual manipulation. The chiropractor moves the vertebrae back in alignment with the rest of the spine. The force applied to the vertebrae is gentle, so it doesn't cause any pain. It does, however, take pressure off the surrounding tissue and nerves, which has the potential to alleviate pain, numbness, tingling and other forms of discomfort. The chiropractic treatment promotes blood flow throughout the spine, which has the potential to enhance the recovery process by bringing additional nutrients to the area. A spinal alignment takes pressure off of the discs, which can help them heal.
Our chiropractor may only perform one or more spinal alignments to help treat your condition. In most cases though, the patient may require other treatments in addition to spinal adjustments in order to eliminate pain and promote a more optimal recovery.
Conditions Treated by Chiropractic Adjustments
A spinal alignment reduces general back pain and discomfort. We utilize chiropractic alignments for nerve-related conditions including sciatica. Sciatica is a term that refers to pain and numbness caused by pressure being placed on the largest nerve in the body, the sciatic nerve. We also recommend spinal adjustments to those who suffer from degenerative disc disease, which is a condition that occurs as a result of age to the discs in the back. Another condition we treat with spinal adjustments is spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is a condition that causes the spine to narrow and place pressure on the nerves that travel through it. Our chiropractor uses this particular treatment for patients who have other musculoskeletal issues such as arthritis, a herniated disc, a ruptured disc or poor posture.
Patients who suffer from headaches or migraines may benefit from a spinal alignment since it reduces or eliminates pressure in the neck and upper back that can lead to headaches. Additionally, it optimizes blood flow to the brain, so a patient who suffers from headaches related to a nutrient deficiency can benefit. Our chiropractor uses adjustments to relieve pain and other symptoms of whiplash. A spinal adjustment effectively reduces general neck pain, too.
