Spinal Adjustment

A Spinal adjustment, or spinal manipulation, is a standard therapeutic treatment performed by a chiropractor. Spinal Manipulation aims to improve spinal motion and the body’s physical functioning. Low back pain, neck pain, and headaches are the most common problems for seeking chiropractic adjustment. During a typical adjustment, the chiropractor will place the patient in specific positions to treat affected areas, often lying face-down on a padded table.

Sometimes, at the first visit, diagnostic imaging may be conducted before the adjustment. The chiropractor will use their hands to apply controlled force. It is an effective treatment for people of all ages. The most common reaction to a chiropractic adjustment is temporary soreness or aching in the spinal joints or muscles.

At Raya Clinic, we regularly hear from many people who have never been to a chiropractor. If you’ve never had chiropractic care, you might be surprised about how it may help you improve your health. The term “chiropractic” originates with the Greek words “chiro” and “praktikos,” which mean “hand” and “practice”. Our clinic helps you by using natural, hands-on care that doesn’t involve risky drugs or surgery.

P.S. Application of an ice pack will reduce the symptoms of a reaction to a spinal adjustment.
