What is a chiropractic adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is the action of using a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is not functioning properly. Some adjusting methods are fast, whereas others need a slow and consistent pressure. This adjustment is often provided by a chiropractor’s hands, although sometimes it may be necessary to use a chiropractic medical instrument as well. Through short and accurate thrusts of pressure, chiropractic adjustments provide motion to the injured joint, helping the body to slowly return to a more optimal position and range of motion.

What does chiropractic care treat?

Chiropractic care has been proven effective in treating many common injuries and conditions, including car accident injuries, neck pain, back pain, muscle pain, shoulder pain, arthritis, sciatica, sports injuries, and more.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care?

There are many benefits of chiropractic care, including improved mobility, a faster recovery process, improved circulation, decreased inflammation, improved overall health and wellness, and more.

Is chiropractic treatment safe?

Yes, chiropractic treatment is safe. In fact, studies have consistently shown that, when performed by trained and experienced chiropractic practitioners, chiropractic adjustments are safer and have fewer health risks than more traditional practices like prescription pills and invasive surgery.

Is chiropractic treatment safe for children?

Yes, chiropractic care is safe for children of any age. Different techniques will often be used for children because of their spine’s delicate composition. However, children can benefit from chiropractic care because it can help keep them from developing issues later in life that we see in many adults.

Is chiropractic treatment effective?

Yes. Studies continue to prove that chiropractic adjustments are effective for a wide range of injuries and health conditions, such as lower back pain, mid back pain, neck pain, headaches, car accident injuries, sports injuries, and pain in your extremities.

Is chiropractic effective for treating car accident injuries?

Absolutely. We encourage anyone who is experiencing pain from car accident injuries to schedule an appointment with us. Dr. Jenkins can perform a complimentary consultation with you to see if there is something that is in need of an evaluation. Whiplash, neck pain, back pain, herniated discs, and pains in your hands and feet are commonly treatable through chiropractic care.

Does a chiropractic adjustment hurt?

With today’s skilled chiropractic technicians and modern adjustment tools, there is usually very little, if any, pain involved with chiropractic adjustments. In fact, many patients report that chiropractic adjustments feel good and relaxing.

What is that popping sound?

Anytime you receive a chiropractic adjustment, the adjustment may allow a gas bubble to be released from between your joints. This action can create a popping sound similar to the sound that occurs when you crack your knuckles (which we do not recommend doing). In the case of a chiropractic adjustment, this sound is nothing to worry about.
