Your spine holds your body upright and contains a major network of nerves. It's no wonder it plays such a pivotal role in your overall health and well-being. And at Dils Chiropractic, serving Carlisle, PA, and the nearby region, Dr. David Dils provides care for this vital body part through spine adjustments.
General Information About a Spinal Adjustment
A spinal adjustment is a common chiropractic therapy. During this treatment, a chiropractor manually moves the vertebrae in your back to realign them with the discs in between. Dr. Dils also provides device-assisted alignments, which consists of using a specialized tool to gently move the vertebrae.
What to Expect During a Chiropractic Adjustment
During a chiropractic adjustment, your practitioner will ask you to lie on a table face down. He will then use his hands or a tool to move the vertebrae slightly.
Many people state they notice a difference in their symptoms immediately, though it may take some patients several adjustments to experience results. It takes almost all patients several appointments to see full results.
Benefits of a Spinal Adjustment
A spinal adjustment takes the pressure off the sensitive discs, allowing them to heal. Additionally, spinal adjustments ease pressure on the soft tissue surrounding the spine.
A spinal adjustment also encourages blood flow throughout your back.
Conditions Treated With Spinal Adjustments
Dr. Dil may recommend spinal adjustments if you have headaches or migraines. Additionally, our practitioner might advise you to have routine spinal adjustments to promote a better night's sleep if you're having difficulty getting quality rest.
Our chiropractor suggests spinal alignments to treat acute issues with your back, such as a herniated disc. These treatments also are beneficial if you have a chronic condition such as fibromyalgia. Our practitioner also uses spinal adjustments to treat sciatica, which can be either acute or chronic depending on the underlying condition.
Spine adjustments can be used to treat personal injuries, including those that are sports-related or from car accidents. Dr. Dils can customize the treatment for issues throughout the spinal column and extremities.
