Chiropractic Adjustments In Blaine MN
Are you experiencing pain, or do you just maintaining a healthy lifestyle? At Club West, we have treated thousands of patients with chiropractor adjustments and other therapies in Blaine MN.
After your initial visit, the doctor will review your case with you and recommend a unique treatment plan designed to resolve your health concerns. Our Blaine chiropractors use an array of techniques in the treatment of spinal conditions; the most commonly used technique is called a chiropractic adjustment. A chiropractic adjustment is used to correct misalignments and motion restrictions of the spine. These spinal misalignments are called subluxations and are detected and diagnosed via x-ray and examination. When the bones in the spine are subluxated, the nerve roots that branch off of the spinal cord may be pinched due to inflammation and increased pressure in the joint.
An adjustment relieves the pressure in the joint, which decreases pain and restores range of motion, nerve flow, and organ function. Chiropractic adjustments decrease low back and neck pain, loosen up stiff joints associated with arthritis, decrease the severity and frequency of headaches, and much more.
Your first visit will include a consultation, exam, and x-rays.
Chiropractors perform chiropractic adjustments by administering a high velocity, low amplitude thrust to the area of restriction. The adjustment is usually accompanied by a cracking sound called cavitation. The cavitation is caused by gases such as oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide coming out of solution in the synovial fluid of the joint. There are times when the audible cavitation may not occur due to the patient tensing up during the adjustment or due to severe pain and muscle guarding. If this occurs, the doctor may apply heat/ice, electrical muscle stimulation, or other therapies before attempting the adjustment again. For patients with this common occurrence, the doctor may recommend further treatment or referrals to a massage therapist.
