Low Force AdjustmentMarshfield, WI
When it comes to treating back pain, surgery is not the only option. However, avoiding treatment altogether is not healthy. Our treatment can consist of manual adjustments and non-surgical treatment to the spine. Since the spine acts as the super highway of the body and connects most of the body’s systems together, any pain in the spine can lead to other health issues.
Understanding low force Adjustments
Contrary to the stereotype, chiropractic treatment is not nearly as complex as some people believe. In fact, we can complete spinal adjustments and corrections with low amounts of force. At Anew Health, our team has the tools and knowledge for treating the precise area of pain in the spine.
If you are suffering from back pain or issues with the spine that hinders your daily routine, contact us to consider low force adjustment.
A chiropractic adjustment is a process in which we apply pressure to a specific area of the patient’s back and spine in order to correct an issue. The adjustment can involve small tools or mainly our hands to apply a controlled force to a spinal joint. With this treatment, we do not need to create any form of incision in the patient.
We will apply a precise and small amount of pressure to the specific area with low force adjustment. Benefits of this treatment include:
- Customized treatment for patient’s needs
- Enhance functionality of spinal joints
- Provide professional pain relief
- Focus on long-term pain relief and functionality
- Recommended stretches and exercises to further treatment
Patients who attempt to wait out the pain and avoid treatment will rely on store-bought painkillers that only provide temporary relief. Along with that, people who attempt their own type of low force adjustment can make the problem worse. This treatment is not a simple massage we provide clients. It is a serious adjustment that requires chiropractic professionals.
People may believe that an incredible amount of force will be necessary to correct spinal issues but in actuality, lower amounts of force may be just what the patient needs. As chiropractors in Marshfield, WI, we have the skills and training to know the proper amount of force necessary for treating these issues.
The Adjustment Process
Through a customized treatment process, the patient will be able to receive the personalized care they need. While the patient may not need another adjustment, we will recommend physical therapy if necessary, to further the recovery.
During the initial examination, we will review the patient’s medical history and current condition in order to customize the treatment plan. If necessary, we will also take X-rays to help get a clear image of the spine and damaged area. After the examination, we will then go over the patient’s options for treatment.
Customizing the Treatment Plan
Once we customize the treatment plan, we will review the steps with the patient. In cases where a low force adjustment is necessary, we will possibly recommend follow-up appointments. The adjustment itself involves the patient lying down in a specific position on a padded table. One of our chiropractors will then apply the proper amount of controlled force to the specific joint.
This will push the joint beyond its typical range of motion for a moment, creating a popping or cracking sound. The chiropractor will continue to do this and help relieve stress on the joints that are causing pain. The amount of time for an adjustment appointment will vary depending on the patient’s overall condition. The extent of the injury and pain may require more than just a low force adjustment.
We may follow an adjustment with other treatment techniques that can help to enhance the overall effect. For instance, we may recommend certain exercises or stretches to continue at home. These exercises can help further the overall recovery. With certain therapeutic techniques during regular appointments, we can also help to continue the recovery.
Since each patient is unique, there is no one-size-fits-all treatment. Due to that, some patients may need to continue with follow-up care and appointments to monitor their progress. There is always a chance of a chiropractic injury flaring up and causing more pain in the future. Some patients may go for several months without issue and suddenly injure it while playing a sport.
An adjustment is a mild pressure applied to the spinal column, designed to release a vertebral section from its improper position. When your spinal bones are properly aligned, nerve communications can function correctly between your brain and your body. When they are out of alignment, this is called a vertebral subluxation.The chiropractic adjustment is an approach used o fix joint disorders where there’s a decrease of regular movement of the joint. This reduction of movement will produce pain. Spinal manipulation restores freedom of movement, thus relieving pain and muscle tension, allowing cells to recover.
