If you have never looked into the world of chiropractic spinal manipulation, you could be missing out on an important modality for helping you enjoy optimal health, wellness, comfort, and injury recovery. Chiropractic adjustments have many benefits including decreased pain, enhanced joint motion and postural improvements.

Dr. Demers and Dr. Bruner both practice evidence based (scientific based) chiropractic adjustments that have proven to be effective through peer reviewed research. They would be happy to provide the research articles during your appointment! Some techniques they perform are: diversified adjusting, extremity adjusting, instrument (activator) adjusting, flexion-distraction adjustments, cervical and lumbar traction and more. All of these are modified in pressure and frequency to each individual patient based on their specific condition. 

The Purpose of Chiropractic Adjustments

The human spine consists of a complex arrangement of vertebrae, discs, joints, and the muscle groups that allow the spine to twist, turn, and bend. It also hosts the spinal cord, with major nerves running through the vertebral spaces to serve the rest of the body. 

Unfortunately, many problems can afflict this delicate combination of moving and non-moving parts. Even the smallest subluxation, or joint imbalance, can limit joint motion, causing pain. Dislodged or herniated discs can press against nerve roots, producing neurological discomfort or weakness in the extremities while also affecting your systemic health. An unbalanced spine may throw the rest of your body out of balance, leaving you with chronic aches and pains.

Extremity joints, such as the shoulder, hip, knee, ankles, wrists and even the jaw can also be limited in their movement causing pain and dysfunction. These joints can also be adjusted in order to help relieve symptoms of carpel tunnel, plantar fasciitis, knee osteoarthritis, shoulder impingement and more. 

Chiropractic spinal adjustment can relieve these problems. Dr. Demers and Dr. Bruner use manual or instrument-assisted techniques that deliver small but focused force to spinal components, shifting them back into position. By normalizing your spinal alignment, we can ease neurological symptoms, reduce muscular strain, and help your body move more freely.

What to Expect From Your Adjustment Session

Chiropractic spinal manipulation can be performed safely on individuals of all ages, including newborns. An initial evaluation analyzes your spinal alignment, checking for any imbalances that may be producing your health challenges. Harrisburg Joint & Muscle will ensure that you are a good candidate for chiropractic adjustment before proceeding. 

Don't be alarmed if you hear a popping sound during your spinal adjustment. This harmless phenomenon occurs when trapped gases escape from within the joints and improves joint health.

If you're ready to improve your movement, flexibility, balance, and everyday comfort, our chiropractic team is ready to help you achieve those goals. Contact our clinic 717-999-4347 to discuss the details of chiropractic spinal manipulation and schedule an initial appointment.
