There are many misconceptions surrounding chiropractic services, such as that chiropractors crack bones. In reality, the cracks or pops you may hear during a chiropractic appointment are known as adjustments and have many potential benefits for patients. Our fantastic chiropractic team at Melville Wellness Centre is committed to ensuring gentle and effective treatments for all our patients. What do our adjustments do, are they safe, and do you need to visit a chiropractor to be adjusted? Read on to learn more.
Adjustments are more than just “back cracks”
Many of us have surely “popped” our necks or backs and thought we were giving ourselves a spinal adjustment, but this isn’t the case. Adjustments are specific manoeuvres designed to return vertebrae to their proper positions or restore proper joint function. They’re only performed after your chiropractor has done a detailed exam of your body and your needs.
Adjustments are safe
A predominant concern for people considering chiropractic treatment is whether adjustments are safe. The answer is, yes! Chiropractic adjustments are a safe procedure offering many benefits. At the same time, we encourage you to only seek spinal adjustments from a qualified and reliable chiropractor, just like those on our experienced and friendly team at Melville Wellness Centre.
Adjustments treat more than just a sore back
While you might think spinal adjustments are only useful for people with back problems, they assist with a lot of common and troubling issues. People who suffer from chronic pain, bad sleep, injuries, poor posture, and impaired movement could benefit from a spinal adjustment.
