Chiropractic Adjustment

What is chiropractic adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is a specialized procedure performed by trained professionals like Dr. Sheps to improve movement in your spine and your overall health. It’s the primary treatment most people associate with chiropractic care.

Dr. Sheps is an experienced chiropractor who focuses on disorders that affect your musculoskeletal and nervous system. Through drug-free, hands-on techniques, Dr. Sheps relieves pain and improves overall health with his innovative care.

Am I a good candidate for chiropractic adjustment?

Dr. Sheps determines if you’re a good candidate for chiropractic adjustment when you come in for an evaluation. While you may think everyone who comes to see a chiropractor requires an adjustment, Dr. Sheps takes a different approach to care, only providing adjustments when necessary. 

His primary focus is on helping your rehabilitative process through exercise and the use of advanced medical techniques.

You may be considered a good candidate for chiropractic adjustment if you’re looking for help managing neck or back pain or for relief from chronic headaches. Dr. Sheps also utilizes chiropractic adjustments to treat acute and chronic injuries and as a tool to prevent injuries. 

What can I expect during a chiropractic adjustment?

Chiropractic adjustments are a painless procedure. During your treatment, Dr. Sheps has you lie on your stomach on the chiropractic table. Then, with a gentle force, he adjusts the vertebrae in your spine to improve motion and flexibility.

During your chiropractic adjustment, you may hear or feel a popping sensation. This sound occurs from the popping of the air pockets in the fluid that surrounds your joints. The sound is a normal part of your chiropractic adjustment. 

Some people feel fatigued or sore after their adjustments, but you may notice an improvement in your pain almost immediately. Depending on your needs, Dr. Sheps may recommend a series of chiropractic adjustments for continued pain management and resolution of your symptoms.

Dr. Sheps may incorporate other treatment modalities into your plan depending on your needs, including laser therapy, spinal decompression therapy, or the McKenzie method.

Chiropractic adjustments are a painless treatment that improves spine function and health. To schedule your adjustment with an experienced chiropractor, call Michael Sheps, DC, today or request an appointment online.
