Can a Spinal Adjustment Set You Straight?

Can a Spinal Adjustment Set You Straight?

Out of sight, out of mind. This can be a good thing, but when it comes to our spines, it’s always out of sight! However, too many of us ignore nagging aches, pains or headaches which can be easily rectified with a spinal adjustment.

The spine is a phenomenal piece of equipment and one we need to take good care of. When things go wrong though, the effect can be the same as a kink in a hosepipe – things just don’t work properly. Let’s explore that a little further.

The Spine – Essential Services Made Simple

Not only does our spine keep us upright and support the entire framework of our incredibly flexible bodies, but it serves as the protector of the spinal cord which is like the body’s internet service. Brain to body, and body to brain, the spinal cord is our trusty messenger.

Our spinal cord is a thick bundle of nerves which achieve a staggering amount in a day - from regulating our heart rate and breathing to maintaining body temperature and muscle movement.

The bones of the spine are an ingenious collection of vertebrae and disks held together by a complex network of muscles.

Spinal Adjustment to Relieve Back and Neck Pain

Whether you’re active and use your body every which way you can, or whether you are a couch potato leading a sedentary lifestyle, you may be at risk of back pain.

Active people can twist or pull a muscle resulting in pain, but equally, a desk-jockey may perform many small yet repetitive movements which result in the spine being pulled out of alignment. Outside of serious injury and degenerative diseases, many common back complaints can be rectified by spinal adjustment. 

Spinal adjustment is a manipulation of the vertebrae to allow them to move normally. A professional medical expert will use various manual methods to relieve joint pressure, relax muscles, realign the spine to allow the muscles and ligaments to move correctly or adjust your posture.

If you have been suffering from unexplained headaches, lower back pain, neck pain or stiffness, then perhaps you should consider a spinal adjustment. The gentle yet firm process of putting your spine and surroundings back where they should be has been an enormous relief for many people.
