How Many Adjustments Do I Need?

When chiropractors adjust, there is more to the vertebral subluxation complex than just bones.

  • The vertebrae in your back are supposed to move freely in all directions.  There should not be any irritation in the small pain sensitive facet joint that are up and down the spine.
  • However, trauma or other injuries may occur that prohibit the spine from moving correctly.  This also causes irritation in the muscles, ligaments, nerves, tendons, and other surrounding soft tissues.  Needless to say, usually the bone is never the only thing which needs to be fixed.
  • This is why it takes some time for you to get better.  Your body is a wonderful healer, it heals cuts, scraps, broken bones; it just takes some time.  You do need to be patient and follow your doctor’s orders to heal quickly.
