You might think of chiropractic treatment as a treatment for back pain, which it definitely can be. However, there are also other health benefits that chiropractic treatment can bring you.
How We Can Help
Chiropractic care alleviates chronic back pain and helps promote faster recovery after an injury. It also aids organ function by stimulating the nervous system. In addition to providing chiropractic adjustment, your Vida Chiropractor will create a personalized exercise program for you to do at home so you can take charge of your healing journey between appointments.

Through these different chiropractic adjustments, your chiropractor will focus on both joint and tissue healing and mechanics and how it relates to your nervous system overall. We’ll also create a personalized exercise program for you to take home with you so you can continue your healing and self-care journey after your chiropractic adjustments.
What is an adjustment?
Adjustments are part of the chiropractic treatment used to restore motion to joints that have lost their ability to move normally. For more than 100 years, chiropractors have been specialists in spinal adjustments. Today, about 95% of all spinal adjustments today are performed by chiropractors.
What do adjustments actually do?
- Increase joint motion
- Reflexively relax muscles around the joint
- Stretch shortened tissues and release joint adhesions
- Relieve nerve compression and irritation
- Reduce pain and muscle dysfunction
- Stimulate the autonomic nervous system, which regulates organ function
- Several chiropractic treatments over a short period have a cumulative effect of achieving long-lasting results and long-term pain relief
What makes the popping sound?
When a joint is adjusted, the two surfaces of the joint separate. This often produces a “popping” or “cracking” sound that we call a “cavitation.” This isn’t bone rubbing on bone, as some think. Instead, it’s actually just air. As space is created in the joint and pressure is released, gas enters this space, allowing for increased motion and greater freedom—similar to opening a can of soda.
