How To Get The Most Out Of A Chiropractic Adjustment

How To Get The Most Out Of A Chiropractic Adjustment | AICA College ParkNowadays, we are accustomed to instant gratification. Always in a rush, we expect fast results–even with our healthcare. Truthfully, that “quick fix” to make the pain disappear is not a permanent solution.

Building a solid foundation and maintaining your health is integral to your well being and it takes time.

What does that have to do with chiropractic? There is more to your spinal health than just an adjustment.

At AICA College Park, there are many therapies available to support your adjustment. Stretches, traction, and more can enhance your treatment.

Therapies for Optimal Healing

Your College Park chiropractors believe that whole body health starts with the spine. Using chiropractic adjustment to remove subluxations, or misalignments, found in the vertebrae can improve your overall health.

Ignored or overlooked, subluxations can impede the brain-to-body communication system, leading to an extensive amount of problems. Whether it be by an accident, injury, stress, tense muscles, over- or under-stretched muscles, or other instabilities, subluxations are complex.

Adjustments are a fantastic way to address the heart of these issues through direct subluxation realignment, but your body requires more. To help stabilize the body and encourage optimal health, additional therapies are recommended.

Getting Traction

Traction is a therapy designed to remedy a forward head posture and a reduced or reversed cervical curve. Problems in the cervical spine are quite common and add a lot of stress to the nervous system.

An important goal for all patients at AICA College Park should be to correct your cervical curve.

What’s Another 10-15 Minutes?

Why take the additional time at our office, when you could correct your cervical spine at home? While some therapies seem simple, many of these therapies should be done under supervision of a College Park chiropractor.

Therapies could be performed incorrectly at home leading to negative results and possible injury.

So, What Can You Do At Home?

There are some therapies and exercises you can do at home to support your health. Any therapy that strengthens your core improves your posture and joint function.

Additionally, stretching throughout the day can be beneficial. Next time you visit AICA College Park, speak with your chiropractor about additional therapies to support your adjustment.

They will be more than happy to form a list of customized therapies to treat your specific condition.
