Spinal Injury and Adjustment
A spinal injury is the misalignment or dislocation of any joint in the body. Spinal injuries can be caused by muscle spasms, structural abnormalities, auto or athletic injuries or repeated stressors. This can result in irritation and/or inflammation of the nerves, ligaments, tendons and muscles and ultimately produces body pain.
You cannot always tell if your body has a spinal injury or if you are in need of an adjustment because sometimes symptoms don't immediately appear. That is why it's important to see a professional physician at Southern States Chiropractic (SSC). Depending on the individual, discomfort can appear either sooner or later. However, warning signs of traumatic spinal injuries include:
The purpose of the adjustment is to eliminate interference with the nervous system, improve spinal function and overall health. Gentle spinal adjustments also boost your body's immunity, which result in more energy, vitality and an improved zest for life.
However, suppressing a spinal injury can result in pain throughout the entire body. The doctors at SSC gently and effectively correct the misaligned bone and allow it to return to its proper position, which enables the body to heal. To keep the body continually healthy and pain-free, several spinal adjustments over a course of time may be necessary in addition to engaging in regular strengthening and stretching exercises.
The doctors at SSC always take into consideration a patient's size, weight, age, pre-existing conditions and life experiences before performing adjustments.
