Understanding The Impact of a Spinal Adjustment

When it comes to chiropractic treatments, spinal adjustments are some of the most regularly used therapeutic techniques. With carefully applied manual force, doctors can help restore joint mobility and alleviate other symptoms like localized pain and muscle tightness, similar to the benefits provided by spinal decompression treatments.

Because the spine is so closely tied to the nervous system, these adjustments have an overall positive impact on the body’s long-term wellness, including decreased inflammation and better blood flow.

Signs You Need a Spinal Adjustment

Knowing that you need to come in for a spinal adjustment is half the battle. Your spine’s health is important for your body to function as a whole. Therefore, making sure that you are on top of your spinal care is important.

Your local chiropractor in Dallas can help you understand and deal with your various sources of pain that require a spinal adjustment. You may not even have to be in pain to reap the benefits of spine health through an adjustment. A spinal adjustment is a good idea if you are experiencing:

  • Chronic Aches and Pains
  • Sudden Sharp Pain in Your Side
  • You Perform Repetitive Motions in Hobbies, Work, and Chores
  • Frequent Headaches
  • General Active Lifestyle

Manual Spinal Adjustments VS. Instrument Adjustments

With traditional chiropractic treatments, manual adjustments are the primary (and in many places, the only) form of spinal adjustments. However, at Premier Health, we decided early on to offer our clients cutting edge technology that few chiropractors offered.

Our ProAdjuster/Ultralign system eliminates the guesswork in determining joint fluidity, rigidity, and motion in the spine. The spine and the nervous system are so intertwined that any interruption between the two ensures a multitude of health issues, such as chronic headaches, back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, sciatica, etc.

The ProAdjuster/Ultralign system is gentle and fast-working, applying a test force over each vertebra in the spine and then relaying information back to the computer, which Dr. Khayal will then assess to determine whether there is fluidity or rigidity, as well as exactly where the problem is. From there, he will work with you to determine the rest of your chiropractic treatment plan.

While the ProAdjuster/Ultralign G2 is one of the most important tools we use when helping patients with all types of pain, we regularly use a combination of manual adjustments and instrument adjustments, depending on each individual’s unique needs and preferences. This ensures that we provide the best spinal adjustment treatment possible.
