Spinal Adjustments in Buffalo

Restore Joint Function, Reduce Pain, and Regain Balance

A spinal adjustment, or a chiropractic adjustment, is likely what you first think of when you think of visiting the chiropractor. It is essentially the hallmark of chiropractic services. During this procedure, our chiropractors use a combination of skilled hands and advanced instruments to apply strategic force to the spinal joints. The most well-known result of this is the famous “cracking” sound, but the full span of results is much deeper than a satisfying noise. The purpose of a chiropractic adjustment is to improve spinal motion and improve the body’s physical function. At a basic level, the doctors at BC+ PT perform these manipulations to help treat low back pain, mid back pain, neck pain, and headaches.  

What to Expect During a Spinal Adjustment

If you have never had a spinal adjustment before, you are probably curious about what to expect and you might be experiencing some nerves surrounding the treatment. Our team is here to put your nerves at ease and let you know that you are in the hands of knowledgeable professionals who prioritize your safety, comfort, and ultimately, your healing. During your first visit, we will begin by gaining a better understanding of your medical history and lifestyle. We might ask a series of questions in order to do this, but please rest assured that this is a judgment-free zone and our intention is to provide you the best care.

This visit will also likely include examinations such as spinal and postural screenings and X-rays so that we can fully detect any abnormalities and create the best treatment route possible. If we decide to move forward with a spinal adjustment, we will begin by placing you in a specific position that gives us access to the affected areas. This typically involves you lying facedown on one of our chiropractic tables. The doctor may then use their hands or an instrument to apply a controlled force into the joint, thereby releasing joint pressure.

Benefits of Spinal Adjustments 

The benefits of getting a spinal adjustment include:

  • Relief from neck and lower back pain
  • Treatment for the symptoms of scoliosis and sciatica
  • Reduction of inflammation
  • Relief from headaches
  • Treatment for the symptoms of neurological conditions
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Reduced vertigo
  • Relief of chronic pain

How Often Should I Receive Spinal Adjustments?

The frequency with which we will recommend you receive a spinal adjustment will depend on the severity of your condition or injuries. Some patients might benefit from visiting once a week, while others may benefit from less frequent visits. Patients with more severe injuries or conditions may need to visit the chiropractor more often, and may need a more intensive and formally-scheduled treatment plan. Whether your pain falls on the minor side of the scale or the severe side, a formal treatment plan should be discussed with your BC + PT doctor and re-evaluated periodically for optimal effectiveness.

Customized Treatment Plans 

Overall, the team at BC + PT will work with each patient individually to decide whether spinal manipulation is the right choice for them and at which frequency.

The team at BC + PT provides service that is personally tailored to each individual patient, with emphasis on quality, safety, and efficiency. Additionally, the doctors at BC + PT will coordinate treatment with other medical professionals when necessary to provide the best outcome for their patients.

Signs You May Need a Chiropractic Adjustment

Certainly, here are some common signs that may indicate the need for a chiropractic adjustment along with their explanations:

  • Persistent Pain: Chronic back, neck, or joint pain can signal misalignments or subluxations that may benefit from chiropractic care.
  • Limited Range of Motion: Difficulty moving certain body parts or experiencing stiffness could be due to joint restrictions that a chiropractor may be able to address.
  • Headaches: Headaches, especially those originating from the neck or tension headaches, may be linked to spinal misalignments, and chiropractic adjustments could offer relief.
  • Muscle Spasms: Spasms can result from nerve irritation or compression, and chiropractic adjustments aim to restore proper nerve function and alleviate muscle tension.
  • Numbness or Tingling: Sensations of numbness or tingling in the extremities may be associated with nerve impingement, and chiropractic adjustments can help release pressure on affected nerves, reducing these symptoms.

If you're experiencing any of the signs above, it's advisable to consult our Buffalo chiropractor for a thorough assessment. Call or contact us online today!
