What happens before a chiropractic adjustment? 

A chiropractic adjustment is a procedure that averages 30 minutes.  Your Elite Chiropractic & Wellness provider reviews your medical records and asks about your symptoms and lifestyle.

 

Next, your provider completes a physical exam and orders diagnostic imaging, such as X-rays or an ultrasound if deemed necessary. These procedures capture detailed, cross-sectional photos of your bones, joints, soft tissues, and internal organs.

 

After confirming a diagnosis, your provider develops a personalized treatment plan. 

 

What happens during a chiropractic adjustment? 

Elite Chiropractic & Wellness tailors chiropractic adjustments to each patient’s needs. At the beginning of treatment, your provider asks you to lie facedown on a chiropractic exam table, allowing them to apply pressure to specific areas of your body. Then, your provider uses their hands or special tools to perform:

  • Manual adjustments to increase your range of motion and realign joints

  • Soft-tissue therapy, like massage, to relax stiff muscles and promote blood flow

  • Exercises and stretches

  • Bracing and taping to support injuries while they heal

Does a chiropractic adjustment hurt? 

Chiropractic manipulation is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort because minimal force and gentle pressure are used. In fact, most patients feel relief immediately following treatment. Any reported soreness after an initial adjustment has been described as similar to that associated with starting a new exercise program. Drinking plenty of water, using an ice pack, and engaging in light stretching after your first visit can help ease any discomfort promote healing.

 

Are adjustments safe?

Chiropractic care is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of most back and neck problems. Spinal adjustments are extremely safe when performed by a licensed chiropractor.

 

Why do adjustments sometimes make a popping sound?

The noises you hear resembling popping sounds are your joints releasing tiny pockets of air. A chiropractic adjustment does not affect the bones of either side of a joint; it affects the connective tissue that holds the joint together.
