Chiropractic Adjustments at Birmingham Wellness Center
Have you been hesitant to look into the healing and pain relief benefits of chiropractic care? Many individuals who stand to gain from chiropractic adjustment simply don't know enough about this time-tested healing modality to feel comfortable scheduling that first appointment. Here at Birmingham Wellness Center, we've been providing area residents just like you with safe, effective chiropractic adjustments that help them feel better and make greater use of their physical potential. Let's look at this all-natural form of care -- and how it just might transform your life.
What Are Chiropractic Adjustments?
Chiropractic adjustments can take different forms and employ different techniques. Although chiropractic means "done by hand," modern technology has also made it possible for handheld instruments to make extremely fine, precise adjustments. The standard manual method, known as diversified Technique, involves applying calculated amounts of targeted force to specific joints that have wandered (or been forced) out of their normal positional relationships. This type of alignment problem is called subluxation, and it can cause serious effects on your health and comfort. Subluxation in the extremity joints can make you prone to injuries such as tennis elbow, rotator cuff injuries, plantar fasciitis and other painful issues. Subluxation in the vertebral joints can throw your entire body out of balance, producing chronic strain. It also interferes with your nerve function, potentially impairing systemic health.
Chiropractic adjustment as we know it was first used by D.D. Palmer in 1895 -- a cervical spinal adjustment that quite unexpectedly relieved hearing loss in his patient. Since that time, chiropractic adjustment has been adopted and refined for use in all kinds of conditions, earning a place alongside exercise therapy and massage among the most popular and effective of modern therapeutic techniques.
Combinations with Corrective Exercise Therapy and Other Treatments
Your chiropractor on our Birmingham team can use chiropractic adjustments to treat neck pain, back pain, headaches, migraines, sports injuries, auto accident injuries, workplace injuries, and chronic strain conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome. A chiropractic adjustment is also safe enough for prenatal care, pediatric treatment, and pain management in seniors. Your chiropractic adjustment regimen may be prescribed as part of a larger holistic plan that includes massage therapy, corrective exercise therapy, acoustic compression therapy, and other types of drug-free conservative care. These potent combinations give your body every chance to use its own abilities to heal itself. Periodic wellness adjustments can even help you keep your physical systems in optimal working order.
