A chiropractic adjustment is a specialized procedure performed by a chiropractic physician, it is a common therapeutic treatment for lower back pain. To complete the adjustment, one of the chiropractic physicians at Bergen Physical Medicine will locate areas of spinal misalignment or dysfunction (spinal subluxation) and apply a specific gentle force to correct it. In addition to relieving your back pain, people have reported that chiropractic adjustments benefit headaches, ear infections, neck pain, joint pain, and arthritis.
At Bergen Physical Medicine, we pride ourselves on taking a natural, drugless approach to helping our patients reach their health goals. Essentially, the basic principle of chiropractic itself is that the body has the amazing ability to heal itself (under proper conditions). The objective of a chiropractic adjustment is to reduce the subluxation with the goals of increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritability and improving function.
