Chiropractic is a health discipline that seeks to improve health and well-being relating to the musculoskeletal system and nervous system.
Chiropractors are university-trained healthcare professionals who seek to ease pain and enhance function using natural methods, hands-on treatments or education about lifestyle change.
A chiropractic adjustment (also known as spinal manipulation) is a common chiropractic treatment. Using our hands or a small instrument, we apply sudden, controlled force to your joints or spine to help ease your pain or improve your joint mobility. You might benefit from a chiropractic adjustment if you:
Soft tissue injuries may happen when you:
Injured tissues undergo physiological changes that may result in inflammation, pain and diminished function. Chiropractic adjustment of the affected joint and tissues helps to restore mobility, relieve muscle tightness and promote tissue healing.
Your first visit at Bodyline Health may involve:
If you’re having a chiropractic adjustment, you’ll be asked to lie down on a comfortable, padded table in a certain position (often facedown).
Your chiropractor will then use their hands to push your joint beyond its usual range of motion using sudden, controlled force. You may hear cracking or ‘popping’ sounds but don’t worry – these are normal during treatment.
While most people tolerate a chiropractic adjustment quite well, you may experience minor side effects such as tenderness, headaches or fatigue.
