Chiropractic Adjustments

Whether you’re tired of living in pain or looking for a way to live a fuller life, Dr. Juewuo Reeves at Quest Chiropractic in Wilmington, DE, offers chiropractic adjustments and other techniques to help you achieve your goals.

Understanding the Purpose and Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments

Adjustments are the most common technique used in chiropractic care, as they are an incredibly effective and natural method for addressing pain and other symptoms. Below, Dr. Reeves and the team at Quest Chiropractic of Wilmington, DE, explain how chiropractic adjustments work, why they are used, and some of the many benefits they provide.

Adjustments: What They Are and How They Work

Adjustments are a method in which proper alignment is restored to the bones and joints. The human body is built with the spinal bones stacking neatly on top of one another. This helps keep your body upright and supports your movements.

When a bone is moved out of its place, either due to long-term strain or a sudden accident, it can impact all the surrounding components. These include your nerves, muscles, ligaments, spinal discs, and tendons.

Misalignment places unnecessary stress and strain on these components, which can lead to pain, poor blood circulation, poor nerve function, and more. Adjustments involve the chiropractor using either their hands or an instrument to move any misaligned bones back into their proper place through a quick, controlled thrust.

Benefits of Adjustments

Restoring the alignment of the spine is effective in relieving various conditions and symptoms. These include but are not limited to:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Headaches
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Tension
  • Fascial pain
  • Poor joint function or joint stiffness
  • Auto, work, and sports injuries
  • Pelvic pain and more

Treatment for such issues typically involves combining adjustments with other techniques, such as soft tissue therapy, for optimal healing and relief.

Though adjustments are effective in pain relief, you don’t have to be in pain to experience the benefits. They are also used to both improve and maintain general health and wellness, as well as to keep patients' bodies functioning properly. Athletes also often seek regular chiropractic care to improve their performance.

No matter what your health, wellness, and relief goals may be, chiropractic adjustments can play an essential role. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Reeves at Quest Chiropractic in Wilmington, DE, by calling (302) 225-1460 today.
