Chiropractic treatments can deliver multiple benefits to help relieve pain and gain movement. Chiropractors treat your musculoskeletal system and your nervous systems. At Vida Integrated Health, our chiropractors use various manual adjustments to address spinal misalignments and relieve pain. Some of the techniques a chiropractor may use include gentle tissue manipulation and therapeutic exercises. Here is more information about four types of chiropractic treatments and their benefits:  

1. Spinal Adjustments

Spinal adjustments involve the chiropractor applying a controlled, targeted force to specific joints in the spine. This targeted treatment aims to improve the joint’s range of motion. It can increase flexibility and movement capacity, allowing individuals to return to their daily activities and exercise routines. With consistent adjustments, individuals may experience reduced pain, muscle tension, inflammation, or nerve irritation. Spinal adjustments are beneficial for individuals suffering from headaches and back, neck, and or pain. Poor posture can cause or worsen these symptoms, and adjustments help realign the spine to improve overall body balance. Posture correction and realignment may result in better muscle tone and a more confident appearance.

2. Soft Tissue Therapy

Soft tissue therapy incorporates various techniques to address muscle, ligament, and tendon issues. Some tissue manipulation methods a chiropractor may use include myofascial release and trigger point therapy. These treatments help improve circulation, reduce pain and inflammation, and relax tense muscles. This treatment alleviates discomfort and enhances blood flow by targeting trigger points or tight areas of the body. This promotes healing and good posture, allowing for a broader range of motion. Reputable chiropractic professionals focus on addressing pain points in the body and finding their root causes to offer clients long-term pain relief.

3. Mobilization Techniques

Mobilization treatments involve applying gentle, repeated movements to specific joints. These movements aim to improve joint mobility and function. Mobilization techniques can be used together with spinal adjustments and soft tissue therapy. These treatments, combined with repetitive mobility exercises, help reduce stiffness and improve flexibility. The gentle movements encourage the body to heal, reduce joint pain, and alleviate discomfort. These exercises simulate the nervous system and the body’s awareness of its position. At Vida Integrated Health, we offer mobilization treatments to help individuals achieve better balance and coordination.

4. Therapeutic Exercises

Chiropractic professionals may perform or recommend specific exercises designed to strengthen muscles and maintain proper spinal alignment. These exercises may include strength training, stretching, and balance techniques. Practicing range of motion exercises prevents the risk of injuries, strengthens postural muscles, and challenges the balance system. Therapeutic exercise plans may be included in the general chiropractic treatment plan to improve overall spine and musculoskeletal strength, stability, and coordination.
