What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

May 30, 2022

If you’re considering or preparing for your first visit to our chiropractor at Springfield Chiropractic Clinic, you might have a few questions about what we do. We’re glad to answer any questions new patients have about the natural, medication-free practices we use to promote wellness, especially in caring for the body’s neuromusculoskeletal system — meaning the bones, nerves, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. 

We are healthcare providers who believe in the body’s ability to heal itself, and emphasize the role that fitness and nutrition play. In welcoming a first-time patient to our comfortable, modern office, we perform a thorough assessment that includes a physical examination to assess posture, strength, and mobility, as well as questions about your medical history, exercise routine, diet, sleep habits, and anything else that will assist us in treating you in a holistic fashion. We may suggest an X-ray before formulating a treatment plan. One of the most important things we do is listen: We want our patients to feel like valued, active partners in their wellness.

Some of  the most common complaints patients come in to see us about  are chronic back and neck pain. Among the treatments we employ to manage these conditions are the cervical and spinal adjustment. The hands-on technique of gently manipulating these joints to relieve pain, improve motion and movement requires years of specialized training that our doctor of chiropractic received before going into practice. Some patients will feel some relief right away; with others it takes more time and follow up visits to achieve the desired results. 

Our doctor of chiropractic at the office of Springfield Chiropractic Clinic we’re proud of the natural pain-relieving techniques we administer, which have proved successful in promoting healing without the need for medication or surgery. We believe in treating the whole person, not just their symptoms. Please contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
