Chiropractic Adjustment in Pittsburgh

Chiropractic Pittsburgh PA Chiropractic Adjustment

A chiropractic adjustment in Pittsburgh aka joint manipulation is the most commonly known procedure performed by chiropractors to help with neck pain, back pain, and even extremity pain. The purpose of an adjustment is to restore mobility to the joints both in the spine and extremities by applying a gentle force (either by hand or with an instrument) into the problem areas that have become restricted.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustment in Pittsburgh

From a technical perspective, adjustments help stimulate nerves called mechanoreceptors that are in the joints- which in turn improves proprioception, or how your body and brain perceive itself in space. That's one of the main reasons that professional athletes and weekend warriors alike get adjusted regularly. It's not just for people who are in pain and can't move well.

When your joints (in the spine or extremities) don’t move well, things like pain, decreased joint mobility, decreased balance and coordination, muscle spasm, and/or poor sleeping patterns can occur.

There are a number of reasons why decreased joint mobility can occur. Car accidents, sports, getting in and out of a car, bending over incorrectly or over-rotating while lifting, simple repetitive stresses like driving all day or sitting at work all day at a computer can all cause limited mobility. In most cases, a person may experience pain, muscle spasm, inflammation, and/or lessened function and ability. A series of chiropractic manipulations or adjustments and other modalities can help to decrease the pain, restore mobility and get you back to functioning at 100%.
