Are There Chiropractic Adjustment Side Effects?

Many people routinely seek chiropractic adjustment done by a trained and qualified walk-in chiropractor in Miami Beach for neck pain, chronic low back pain, and even stress. Such adjustments can help to align the spine properly and release any build-up of nitrogen or helps in the toxic release of gases from the joints in the spine that might be causing you discomfort.

Ultimately, there are a variety of chiropractic techniques that can help to improve mobility and increase flexibility if you are suffering from pinched nerves, back pain, and more. However, are there actually any side effects to having an adjustment done by a chiropractor?

As with most things having to do with health and wellness, the answer to this question can vary from case to case. That being said, the vast majority of people experience absolutely no adverse effects following a chiropractic adjustment, especially those who opt for the gentler techniques used by chiropractors.

The most common side effect that is seen following an adjustment is a bit of aching and soreness in the area that has been adjusted. This soreness can be eased by icing the affected area. Generally speaking, the soreness that you might experience following a spinal adjustment goes away within 24 hours of your treatment. After that, all you are left with is the loose, relaxed feeling that comes from a well-adjusted and properly aligned spine.

As long as your trust a skilled and qualified chiropractor, like the ones at SnapCrack Chiropractic, you can expect to only find relief from your pain and discomfort through one of our tried and tested chiropractic techniques.

Methods of Adjustment

When it comes to having a chiropractic treatment done at Miami Beach chiropractor SnapCrack, you can take your pick from a variety of techniques. Three of our most popular methods of chiropractic manipulations involve varying degrees of force as well as the use of some chiropractic devices.

One of the most common chiropractic sessions that your chiropractor can offer you is one that we call The Crack. This is what you most likely think of when you envision having an adjustment. Your chiropractor will apply a moderate amount of force to “crack” your spine, thus releasing the build-up of gas from your joints and achieving your adjustment.

The Drop is a technique that utilizes a drop table to allow your chiropractor to adjust you properly. With the area to be adjusted elevated, your chiropractor will apply a mild amount of thrust to the area as the table drops down. This gentler technique will help align your spine without excessive force.

The Click is our gentlest technique and requires the least amount of force. Your chiropractor will use a smaller device to gently click the bones of your spine back into alignment. You will feel a few areas of light force throughout the process and come away with an easy, gentle spinal manipulation.

Following Treatment

After your physical therapy treatment at our chiropractic clinic, you will feel the relief that comes with a properly aligned spine. However, as with anything involving your wellness, you should pay attention to your body. If you do experience any soreness, ice and rest should do the trick.
