Spinal Adjustments Treatment in Fairfax, VA

Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments Specialist

While chiropractors can help with more than just back pain, most patients go for treatment to get chiropractic spinal adjustments. They are looking for quick neck and back pain relief. 

According to reports from the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractic care paired with typical medical care for low back pain provides much better pain relief and a better reduction in disability compared to medical treatment alone.

Our Chiropractor in Fairfax, VA will make sure you get the best possible treatment. We will increase your spinal motion with spinal manipulation and get the body’s physical function back on track. You are in the right spot if you want to learn more about chiropractic spinal adjustments with this kind of treatment. We prepared a quick review of everything you need to know.

What happens during a chiropractic spinal adjustment?

Chiropractic spinal adjustments, also known as spinal manipulative therapy, are unique procedures that restore your range of motion. Our chiropractors will use a gentle instrument or their hands to add gentle and controlled force to a specific spinal joint at Active Family wellness. 

This gentle thrust restores regular communication between the brain and the associated spinal nerve root. If, for example, you are suffering from spinal subluxations, which are misaligned or restricted joints in the spine, then chiropractic care can fix the discomfort and ache. 

When the misalignment is left unmanaged, it will add pressure to the spinal nerves (peripheral nervous system) and reduce nerve signal function between the brain and body. Thus, Chiropractic spinal adjustments are a complementary health approach that can be useful for a range of different problems. 

With every adjustment, there is little to no pain involved. You will feel cracks and pops, but it is normal to feel some mild or minor soreness post-treatment other than that. (Much like going to the gym)

Why Do People Get Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments?

Other than for back pain, adults are getting spinal manipulation for their overall wellness. The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health found that:

At the Active Family Wellness clinic of Fairfax, chiropractic spinal adjustments are used for all of the above. Our expert chiropractors will use gentle movements to realign the vertebra and apply careful pressure to ease the discomfort and pain.
