Chiropractic Adjustments: Do They Hurt & How Do They Help?

Let’s Put Any Fears to Rest

Contrary to common fears, chiropractic adjustments generally do not cause pain. Instead, any discomfort experienced is usually temporary and akin to the sensation felt when stretching muscles that aren’t frequently used. This discomfort is the body’s natural response to new or unfamiliar movements and typically subsides quickly.

Patients often report immediate relief following an adjustment, experiencing a significant decrease in tension and an increase in relaxation. This immediate relief results from the adjustment’s impact on the nervous system, which influences various bodily functions, including muscle tone, pain perception and even blood flow.

Techniques Tailored to Comfort

Modern chiropractic care offers a variety of adjustment techniques to cater to different preferences and physical conditions. These methods range from manual adjustments involving direct manipulation with the hands to gentler approaches like the drop-piece technique and the Activator Method, which uses a specialised instrument to deliver precise impulses to the spinal segments.

Our chiropractors select the method best suited to an individual’s needs, ensuring that the process is both comfortable and beneficial for each patient.

The Broader Benefits of Spinal Adjustments

Spinal misalignment disrupts nerve communication between the brain and body, impacting the local spine and areas controlled by these nerves. This can affect muscles, skin, ligaments, tendons and joints, leading to problems like poor joint control, altered muscle tone and changed skin sensation.

Spine and nervous system performance also influences the function of internal organs. Our patients have reported improved energy, digestion and bowel function, sleep, mood and more as their spine and nervous system function improves.
