Your Stuart Chiropractor Adjustment

Chiropractic adjustments, or chiropractic spinal manipulation, is the act of moving vertebrae in the spine or extremities. The goal is to realign the vertebrates in your spine or joints that are out of place. This can happen for many reasons such has trauma, car accidents, slip and fall or just regular daily activities.

When these bones or joints are not aligned properly, it can have an effect on the entire body. Anywhere from your muscles to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment our nerves and systems do not function at our best performance.

A chiropractic adjustment uses pressure from the chiropractor using their hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. Often a quick movement is used and comes without discomfort. If you’ve ever cracked your knuckles, you may hear a similar noise to that. This sound is the release of gases in the body like oxygen and nitrogen and is perfectly normal. Chiropractic adjustments are an great way to keep the body functioning at its highest level.

Neck Pain

Neck pain affects a significant number of individuals. Recent studies have found more than 10% of Americans suffer from neck pain at any given time. The reason is that the neck region contains many delicate, pain sensitive structures commonly exposed to abuse and abnormal stresses. Incomplete rehabilitation of past injuries, poor posture, prolonged sitting, and lack of periodic spinal alignments are some of the more common factors in the development of neck problems. Fortunately, most individuals suffering from neck problems will find chiropractic care extremely beneficial. Unlike prescription drugs, most chiropractic procedures address the cause of the majority of neck problems, not simply the symptoms. Best of all, chiropractic care is safe, natural, and noninvasive… no side effects allowed!

Back Pain

Mid Back Pain

If you’re suffering from lower back pain you’re not alone. More than 80% of North Americans will at some time in their life suffer from the disabling confines of lower back pain.

According to experts, lower back pain is the number one disability culprit in workers’ compensation claims and accounts for more than $50 billion annually in the US through medical care and lost production. In addition, the latest research shows most lower back problems which cause low back pain do not fully resolve without extensive treatment and proper rehabilitation, contrary to previous beliefs.

The chiropractic doctor is unique in the health care field in that much of the training in chiropractic colleges is specifically aimed at identifying and successfully treating and managing lower back conditions. General medical practitioners generally lack adequate training in this area and have not learned the skills necessary to most effectively identify and treat most back conditions.

The fast-paced lifestyles of today have taken their toll on the backs of America. Currently, back pain is the number one cause of disability in those aged 19-45 and is the second leading cause of missed work days. Total annual costs for back pain in the US alone are estimated to be in excess of $60 billion.

A number of factors contributing to these statistics, including:

  • overall increases in work demands
  • overall decreases in physical activity
  • increases in prolonged sitting (at the desk, in the car, in front of the television)
  • lack of periodic spinal checkups and preventative care
  • failure to seek immediate care following injury
  • failure to receive adequate treatment for back injuries (i.e. medications only without proper rehabilitation of tissues)
  • poor postural habits and lifting techniques

Our treatments primarily focus on the cause of your problems, which not only results in rapid and effective pain-relief, but most importantly, minimizes the chance of future back problems.
