Adjustments and Manipulation

chiropractic adjustment

A chiropractor is a holistic health and healing practitioner who uses natural and noninvasive techniques to help alleviate pain, swelling, and discomfort and foster healing and wellness in patients. Spinal adjustments, also known as chiropractic manipulations, are a time-tested, trusted form of treatment. Able Monson Chiropractic in West Valley City, UT, provides expert spinal manipulations and other forms of chiropractic care, such as Electrical Stimulation Therapies and Therapeutic Ultrasound. Dr. Dan Monson has been providing outstanding, compassionate chiropractic care for the communities of West Valley City since 1987.

The Philosophy Behind Spinal Adjustments

The spine is one of the most important elements in the body, providing structural support that allows us to walk, bend, hold our heads up, and move about our daily lives. When the spine is out of alignment due to injuries or degenerative conditions, this creates pressure on the surrounding nerves, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, causing painful symptoms and reducing range of motion and flexibility. An unhealthy spine can lead to aching and weakened muscles, joint problems, pain in the hips, shoulders, and chest, migraines, sleep disorders, and poor concentration. Spinal misalignment can also lead to issues with the peripheral nervous system and optimal neurological functioning.

Benefits of Spinal Adjustments

Chiropractors believe that if the vertebrae of the spine are in their natural alignment, the body’s natural healing mechanisms can be enhanced. Chiropractic spinal adjustments involve quick thrusts or slow, gentle, pressured movements to manipulate the joints to correct the body’s alignment. This treatment is excellent for improving posture and treating pain in the musculoskeletal system, including the lower back, neck, shoulders, jaw, and hips. Spinal adjustments help decrease pain and improve flexibility and range of motion.
