The Chiropractic Care Adjustment

THE CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT : FROM PAIN RELIEF TO WELLNESS

Chiropractic care is the gold standard for treating neck and back pain but most people are unaware that the same chiropractic adjustment that alleviates sciatica and tech neck can do so much more. Our Wheat Ridge chiropractor creates tailored treatment plans to fit each patient’s needs. Chiropractic care has helped patients with a wide range of injuries or conditions. Our Chiropractor, Dr. Al Simeone can also help you elevate your quality of life because chiropractic adjustments optimize how your nerve system functions.

How Does a SPINAL ADJUSTMENT FROM MY CHIROPRACTOR WORK?

Our Wheat Ridge Chiropractor corrects your spinal alignment with gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments based on your injury. From birth, your nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves) control how your body develops and functions. Your nerves branch out from your spinal cord between the bones in your spine (vertebrae) and travel to every area of your body. Spinal misalignments (subluxations) pinch nerves, interrupting communication between your brain and body, unsurprisingly causing pain and dysfunction in the area where pinched nerves send disrupted messages to. Subluxations occur in one of two main ways. Either from a sudden injury or they develop over time due to poor posture and ergonomics. Whether they are caused by an acute injury or chronic poor posture, subluxations must be corrected for your body and nervous system to function properly. Wheat Ridge chiropractor Dr. Al Simeone can carefully diagnose your injury and its exact location. He specializes in the Gonstead method of chiropractic to gently and specifically correct subluxations and spinal alignment, alleviating pinched nerves so your body can function properly.

Chiropractic Care Pairs with Proper Ergonomics and Posture for Faster Recovery

Chiropractic adjustments are essential to helping you correct your spinal alignment and relieve pinched nerves, stress on soft tissues and intervertebral discs. Good ergonomics and posture are essential for long-lasting maintenance of your correct spinal alignment. It is impossible to offer an extensive list of recommendations for proper posture on our website because every patient is dealing with a unique injury, condition or circumstance related to their injury. Schedule an appointment with our chiropractor for ergonomic recommendations and therapeutic exercises tailored to your condition.

Chiropractic Adjustments FAQs

Here are a few common questions our Wheat Ridge chiropractor Dr. Al Simeone is asked about chiropractic care. If you have a question about how regular chiropractic adjustments can help you with pain relief, recover from injury, and wellness, please call us!

WHY DOES MY BACK CRACK WHEN MY CHIROPRACTOR ADJUSTS IT?

The sound that is created during an adjustment is gas (usually nitrogen) escaping from the joint space as the subluxation is corrected—not bones cracking, snapping or hitting each other.

WILL I BE SORE AFTER A CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT?

Mild soreness is common following the first few adjustments—this soreness is similar to the sore feeling after working out when you have not exercised in a while. The soreness will decrease and you will notice pain relief, increased range of motion and wellness.

ONCE MY INJURY IS HEALED, WILL I STILL NEED SPINAL ADJUSTMENTS?

“Once I’m in shape, do I still need to exercise?” Of course—and it is the same for chiropractic care. Daily stress and injury can misalign your spine just like not working out regularly will cause you to get out of shape. This makes regular maintenance adjustments necessary for optimal wellness.

WHAT IF MY BACK DOESN’T CRACK OR POP DURING AN ADJUSTMENT?

If you do not hear a pop or crack during a chiropractic adjustment, do not worry. The sound that is made has nothing to do with the effectiveness of the adjustment itself. If you do not hear a sound it can mean one of two things. It may mean the area is very stiff, there may be significant scar tissue build up and this area may need some rest before another adjustment is made on the following visit. The second reason you may not hear a pop if you have been self adjusting.
