The joints in your body allow you to move. But all of that activity can take a toll, straining your joints and even moving them out of their proper positions which is called a subluxation. The goal of a chiropractic adjustment is to correct your joint’s alignment by allowing them to move throughout their full range of motion and relieve the pressure being put on them and their supporting ligaments.

Chiropractic adjustments center on reducing the fixation and increasing the range of motion within the joint. Dr. Holub uses his hands or other tools to apply targeted pressure to locations along your spine. This moves your spine back into proper alignment and allows the joints within the body to resume their natural movement.

Not only does this improve your spinal function and overall mobility, but it also supports your body as a whole. When your spine is properly aligned, your muscles don’t get pulled or experience pressure from misalignment. As a result, chiropractic adjustment can help muscle injuries heal faster.

Additionally, chiropractic adjustment ensures spinal misalignment isn’t affecting your nervous system. It lessens the pressure on nerve tissue, which is particularly sensitive, often quickly reducing pain for many patients.

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

What can chiropractic adjustment be used to treat?

Dr. Holub uses chiropractic adjustment for a variety of conditions because it’s safe, natural, and highly effective. Some of the conditions they treat with chiropractic care are:

  • Headaches
  • Sciatica
  • Auto accident injuries, including whiplash
  • Back pain
  • Joint pain
  • Neck pain
  • Muscle strains

If you’re living with pain from an injury or a condition, don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Holub if a chiropractic adjustment is right for you.

What should I expect during a chiropractic adjustment?

During your adjustment, Dr. Holub positions your body so your adjustment can be as effective as possible. In most cases, this means lying face down on a padded table.

Then, he starts treatment by applying sudden, carefully controlled pressure to targeted joints. This helps shift the joint back into its proper position. You might hear a crack or pop as your joints move. This is completely normal. In fact, some people find the audible release of a chiropractic adjustment satisfying.
