Chiropractic Adjustment

Understanding Chiropractic Adjustments: A Guide to Spinal Health

What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is a precise procedure performed by a chiropractor, using hands to correct vertebral subluxations (misalignments in the spine).

The term 'Chiropractic' originates from the Greek word “kheir,” meaning “by hands only.”

The Process of Adjustment

  1. Examination: Dr. Kasandra and Dr. Leo conduct a detailed neurological examination to locate the precise area and severity of the subluxation.

  2. Manual Adjustment: The primary method of adjustment at Charleston Chiropractic Studio, performed using hands.

Why Are Adjustments Important?

  • Correcting Subluxations: Adjustments are the only external method to correct subluxations.

  • Restoring Spinal Alignment: Proper alignment is crucial for the health of the central nervous system.

  • Overall Well-being: Adjustments improve nerve function and overall body health.

The Adjustment Experience

  • Gentle and Safe: Adjustments are specific, gentle, and safe for all ages.

  • The 'Popping' Sound: Often accompanied by a loud noise, similar to cracking knuckles, caused by gas release in the joint.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

  • Enhanced Mobility: Improved movement and flexibility.

  • Pain Relief: Alleviation of back pain, neck pain, and other discomforts.

  • Improved Function: Better nerve communication leads to enhanced organ function.
