Many sources of chronic pain reside within the joints of the body. These areas are made of softer tissue than the rest of the structure that supports your body due to the fact that they must allow for movement.
When these areas become misaligned, pain and limited motion tend to become symptoms. Patients may be unable to do more than to manage their pain with over-the-counter treatments. Some situations may not be manageable with these temporary treatments.
Let’s explore how chiropractic adjustments work with the body to promote healing.
What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
Chiropractic adjustments, also referred to as manipulations, involve utilizing a concentrated amount of precise force upon the joint. This helps to set it into a proper alignment while releasing any built-up gasses that may prevent the body from healing as it should.
How Does Adjustment Aid in Healing?
There are a few ways that chiropractic adjustments aid in the body’s natural healing process.
The most prominent of these ways revolves around the fact that the misalignment has been corrected. This prevents issues like inflammation and irritation within the joint from occurring. Patients may be less prone to bad posture due to the alleviated symptoms, which in turn promotes healing.
The second way adjustments promote healing revolves around the increased blood flow that patients experience. Realignment helps to ensure that the nervous and cardiovascular systems are working together to repair the injured area.
The last way adjustments promote healing is by promoting proper use of the joint. This further increases blood flow while allowing the body to heal any minor imperfections.
Other affects brought about by adjustments are indirect. These can include increased healing from better exercise, the increased availability of nutrients through better dieting, pain reduction through massage and electrical stimulation, and so on.
