Here at Back in Balance, we specialize in chiropractic care.

A chiropractic adjustment can make you feel much better and restore optimal function to your body. Your brain and body desire to be in sync and balance, not out of alignment. An adjustment can help restore balance to the body and the lines of communication with your brain. A chiropractic adjustment refers to the application of an impulse by hand or instrument to a joint in order to improve motion, physical function, and restore the structural integrity of the spine.   You may have heard other terms like a chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, which mean the same thing.  When vertebrae (the bones in your back) are in an incorrect position, that’s called a subluxation which can result in abnormal motion and improper function.

The goal of chiropractic care is to remove the subluxation which can relieve pain, improve mobility, reduce nerve irritation, correct structure and restore spinal integrity. Our compassionate and qualified chiropractor will work with you to relieve pain and get your “back in balance” which will help you feel and function your very best.

A chiropractic adjustment may involve a high velocity thrust or light touch applied to the bones/joints of your back.  It can relieve pain, discomfort, and spasms in the surrounding muscles of the back. Sometimes there is a noise when a bone moves called cavitation.  The noise is caused by the release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide from the joint.

Although many people visit their chiropractor for an adjustment when something feels out of alignment, a regular visit will help you avoid pain in the future and will help keep your body running in tip top shape and feeling great.

If you are having one of those days when you are not in the best mood, an adjustment may help that too.  When stress is removed from the nervous system, the brain and body are able to better communicate and balance brain chemicals called neurotransmitters , which will naturally improve your mood.
