When people feel discomfort in their joints and in their back, they often do not even realize how much help a chiropractic adjustment can provide. For Dr. Parastou Ilbeigi, DC, adjustments are a primary part of her Apple Valley practice. She finds that most patients who contact a chiropractor are looking for relief through an adjustment and that is no exception at the Chiropractic Institute of High Desert.
It is important, however, that patients recognize what an adjustment is and how it can benefit them. This procedure, which is also referred to as a spinal manipulation, is the process of manipulating the joints so that it relieves the patient’s discomfort while also giving them neurological relief that will improve their general health overall. The adjustment requires the doctor to move the joint beyond its typical range of motion, while being careful not to force the joint to move beyond the range of motion that anatomy allows it to move. Patients often will hear a cracking noise, or perhaps a popping sound, as the adjustment is done. Almost always, the patient will feel instant relief allowing them to enjoy their life more thoroughly and improve their mood overall.
In general, the goal of these adjustments is to ensure that the patient feels better and is relieved of any physical pain they might be experiencing. In addition, these adjustments can help to make them feel better as a whole. It is important, however, that patients recognize that a skilled chiropractor should be the only person performing these adjustments. A spinal adjustment can also be performed by an orthopedic doctor or a physical therapist, but a person who is not a professional should not attempt to make these same adjustments. There could be serious health complications if an unskilled and uneducated person attempts to make a chiropractic adjustment.
