Purpose and Benefits of Spinal Adjustments

Chiropractors often spend their careers studying and specializing in various techniques to optimize patient health and healing. While these additional techniques are incredibly beneficial, adjustments will always play a foundational role in treatment. What are spinal adjustments for exactly, and why are they so beneficial? The team at Kim Chiropractic in Elkins Park, PA, answers these questions and more below.

What Exactly Do Adjustments Do?

At some point in your life, you’ve likely played or seen someone play a game that requires stacking blocks and then slowly pulling them out of their place. At some point, the stacks completely crumple.

Spinal misalignment is similar to this game. While your body will not exactly crumple, a misalignment causes stress on the rest of the musculoskeletal system. This stress can lead to various issues, such as herniated discs, nerve compression, muscle tension, and more.

Adjustments are similar to putting the blocks neatly back in their place. When this is done with the bones and joints of the body, the foundation becomes stronger, and the stress is taken from the surrounding components.

Benefits of Adjustments

Restoring proper alignment of the body through adjustments can provide enumerable benefits. When the bones are out of place and pressure is placed on muscles, nerves, and other components, it can create a wide range of symptoms. These can include everything from pain to decreased blood circulation and chronic illnesses.

The specific benefits you experience depend directly on your symptoms, but the following are some of the most common.

  • Reduction or elimination of headaches and migraines
  • Reduction or elimination of back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, and hip pain
  • Improved blood flow
  • Improved nerve function
  • Reduction in muscle tension
  • Increased energy
  • Better sleep
  • Improved mood
  • Increased balance and flexibility
  • Decreased levels of stress
  • Reduction in inflammation
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Decreased risk of spinal degeneration
  • Posture improvement
  • Increased joint function

In short, people who receive regular adjustments tend to enjoy less pain and better overall health and wellness.
