Question: Who gets subluxations?

Answer: Almost everyone develops spinal subluxations. The four major causes of vertebral subluxations are congenital instability, injury, fatigue, and reflex reactions. Fortunately, most of these subluxations correct themselves when one relaxes or lies down to sleep. When spinal subluxations are severe or persistent they require chiropractic diagnosis and treatment.

Question: What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

Answer: Chiropractic adjustment is the art of introducing a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a vertebra that is subluxated or out of place. The Chiropractor identifies the location of the subluxation, determines the exact direction and the best way to correct the positioning. The adjustment itself is a movement of the spine that is done either by hand or with a computerized instrument in a very quick movement. The adjustment assists the vertebra back into the normal alignment, which restores proper motion to a joint and relieves nerve pressure. There are approximately 40 different ways to analyze and adjust the spine, so the actual adjustment will vary from Chiropractor to Chiropractor.

Question: What is that “cracking” noise?

Answer: Your joints contain fluid that helps to keep them healthy and lubricated (like oil in a car). This “synovial fluid” contains gas (like carbonation in soft drinks). When an adjustment is made you may hear a noise. This is known as an “audible release” and is simply the release of gas in the joint much like when you open a can of soda.

Question: How long will it take me to get well under adjustments?

Answer: The length of time will depend upon how long the vertebrae have been displaced, how successful the adjustment is in reducing the displacements, how much damage has been done to the nerve tracts and fibers, the vitality of the patient, and the rate of response of the nerve fibers to the adjustment.

Question: What brings about healing under adjustments?

Answer: The function of the adjustment is to restore misplaced bone structures to their normal positions and re-establish the normal pathways for the nerve tracts and fibers so that performance of the nervous system can improve, thus promoting healing.
