Are Chiropractic Adjustments Necessary?
Dr. Jones, your local Holmen Chiropractor, answers the question, “Are Chiropractic Adjustments Necessary?”
The simple answer is YES!
As many of you know, if you’ve read or watched any of our videos, chiropractic adjustments remove subluxations. A subluxation in your spine reduces the size of the hold that the nerve is coming out of. You get swelling in that area, which put pressure on the nerve, thus causing you pain.
The other thing that occurs with a subluxation is the loss of motion in that area of the spine. The discs of your spine, the cushions, need this motion to get their nutrients in and out and to stay healthy. If the disc is not getting it’s nutrients, it will begin to shrink (degenerative disc disease) and then your body will grow extra bone in that joint (arthritis). This is when chronic pain and diseases set in.
An adjustment will restore motion to that joint, which will reduce the swelling, take pressure off the nerve, which will make you feel better and function better! Sounds pretty amazing, right??!!
To answer the question, HECK YES!!
