What Is Spinal Manipulation?

Spinal Manipulation is utilized to restore joint mobility by combining massage, exercise, and physical therapy. It’s designed to relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. It’s often used to treat back, neck, shoulder, headache pain, correct structural alignment, and improve your body’s physical function.

Lower-back pain is a common condition that usually improves with self-care, or practices that people can do by themselves, such as remaining active, applying heat, and taking pain-relieving medications. However, it is occasionally difficult to treat. The doctors at integrated Spinal Solutions are trained to use a technique called Spinal Manipulation to relieve lower-back pain, and improve physical function.

Spinal Manipulation restores or enhances joint function, resolves joint inflammation, reduces pain, and will restore mobility and flexibility to joints by disrupting scar tissue. Spinal Manipulation does not hurt, it relieves tension and helps to stop pain.

Spinal Manipulation

How Does It Work?

Spinal Manipulation is a “hands-on” treatment of the spine, which includes both manipulation and mobilisation. In manual mobilisations, the doctors at Integrated Spinal Solutions will move the your spine within your range of motion. Our doctors use slow, passive movements, starting with a small range and gradually increasing to a larger range of motion. Spinal Manipulation is a passive technique that our doctors apply to a specifically directed manual impulse, or thrust, to a joint, at or near the end of the range of motion.

Is It Safe?

Chiropractic treatment of the spine is a time-honored and safe method of restoring proper motion to the spine. Chiropractic is not a new medical discovery, however, there have been some remarkable advances to chiropractic in just the last few years, namely the creation of spinal decompression therapy.
