Would you believe that adjusting your back might be the solution to your back pain? The experienced spinal manipulation chiropractor at Pernice Chiropractic in Selden, NY can make adjustments to your joints that may help ease your pain. Spinal manipulation is the combination of jolting and moving joints, chiropractic treatment, massage, and exercise. Spinal manipulation is also known as spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) or manual therapy.
The process of spinal manipulation involves force and twisting. Practitioners use their hands to apply controlled, but sudden force to your joints. Typically, the doctor will quickly thrust his or her arms into the pain causing vertebrae. This strategically placed push on the spine actually releases a joint cavitation gas. Due to this release of gas, it is common for patients to hear a popping noise during this process, similar to cracking your knuckles.
The goal of spinal manipulation is to reduce inflammation, improve nerve function, and relieve pressure on joints. Spinal manipulation has been proven to relax muscles. This practice is also used to prevent or manage conditions in all systems of the body with its holistic benefits. Spinal manipulation in Selden is a natural and non-invasive approach to health care.
