Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments involve the controlled application of force to a spinal joint in order to move it beyond its usual range of motion. This type of treatment is often used to help alleviate pain in the lower back or neck, however, it may also be included as part of a more comprehensive treatment plan for other injuries or musculoskeletal problems. Most patients experience maximum improvement in 6 to 12 sessions, but this can vary depending on your specific condition. In order to determine if chiropractic adjustment can help you with your spinal issues, please contact Corpus Christi Chiro Center to book a consultation with one of our licensed chiropractors. Before beginning any type of treatment, we will perform a full physical examination and review your medical history to make sure that chiropractic care is the right option for you. We take patient care very seriously, and our team consistently goes above and beyond to make sure our patients are receiving the highest quality chiropractic services.

Procedure

A chiropractic adjustment will always be carried out by one of our highly trained chiropractors. You may be asked to get into a specific position to better allow your chiropractor to effectively treat the affected joint; however, in most instances, patients will be treated while lying face down on a padded table. Using his/her hands, your chiropractor will apply controlled force to the joint. You may hear your joints pop or crack during the procedure, which is perfectly normal. On average, each treatment only takes a few minutes. Depending on the extent of the problem, patients can require anywhere from 6 to 12 sessions for optimal improvement. We often have patients receiving chiropractic adjustments come in 3 times a week, which means that your treatment plan may last 2 to 4 weeks. Because each patient is different, we make sure to tailor every treatment plan to fit the needs of the individual. At your initial consultation, we will go over your prognosis and help you understand what you can expect.
