Pain Management in Dallas Through Spinal Manipulation
The cornerstone of chiropractic care has long been spinal manipulation. This treatment generally refers to any kind of therapeutic movement of the spine that your North Dallas wellness doctor uses. More specifically, however, spinal manipulation involves using quick yet firm pressure on a joint between two vertebrae. As a result of this pressure, the joint rotates beyond the normal range of motion. At the point of full rotation, you may hear a cracking sound that is thought to be the release of a bubble into the fluid that lubricates the spine. Alternatively, the cracking sound may be the opening of a vacuum in the area of the spine.
To perform spinal manipulation, Dr. Z either directly exerts pressure on the vertebrae or indirectly by rotating your neck or upper body. To make sure that only one spinal joint at a time is manipulated, the rest of the spine is held completely still.
At the beginning of treatment, Dr. Z recommends scheduling two or three appoints each week for spinal manipulation. Treatments last 10 to 20 minutes and you can expect your symptoms to improve in a few weeks.
Research has found that spinal manipulation may not only be helpful for back and neck pain, but other ailments as well. Patients seek chiropractic care for other musculoskeletal pain, migraine headaches, asthma and allergies, carpal tunnel syndrome and fibromyalgia.
