Treatment

Chiropractic treatment mainly involves safe, often gentle, specific spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine, or other areas of the body related to the back, that are not moving properly. Most often, this requires a short thrust to a joint that can result in an audible ‘pop’ and may bring relief of symptoms as well as better mobility. The 'pop' is simply the sound of bubbles of gas popping in the fluid of the joint as the pressure is released.
Apart from the manipulation, your chiropractor may use a wide variety of techniques including ice, heat, ultrasound, exercise and acupuncture as well as advice about posture and lifestyle. If you have questions about any of these, just ask.
