Manipulations & Adjustments
At Siegel Chiropractic & Massage, chiropractic adjustments are our bread and butter. More people receive these treatments than any others because of how versatile they are. And our Arden, NC, chiropractor, Dr. Clayton Siegel, always thoroughly screens you first to guarantee safety when having an adjustment.
Although chiropractic care has been gaining more popularity than ever recently, chiropractic adjustments have been around since the 19th century. With these particular treatments, a practitioner will manually perform maneuvers on your spine that optimize nervous system function and circulation while reducing your pain and other symptoms.
What to Expect During and After
First, Dr. Siegel will thoroughly evaluate you to ensure this procedure is safe for you. In some cases, it may be safe but might need to be altered a bit.
During the adjustment, our practitioner will ask you to lie on a table on your front. Our chiropractor will then use his hands and perform manipulations on your spine. They don’t tend to cause any pain, and some patients notice relief instantly.
In some cases, you may feel some discomfort or fatigue after the chiropractic adjustment. This is normal and will subside over time.
Chiropractic adjustments are non-invasive and don’t require any healing time. You may return to work or home immediately following your adjustment, and there are no restrictions. You can go back to living life, working, or taking care of your family just as you always do.
Who Could Use an Alignment
As noted above, you undergo an examination before you receive any treatment with us. Through the information you provide and the physical evaluation, we can determine if chiropractic adjustments are right for you. Sometimes, our practitioner will recommend more than one treatment. And keep in mind that most patients need multiple adjustments to see the full results. In fact, people with chronic conditions may benefit from getting adjusted regularly.
Some of the conditions our chiropractor may use adjustments for include the following:
- Spinal stenosis
- Degenerative disc disease
- Disc herniation
- Bulging disc
We commonly advise patients to undergo spinal adjustments to prevent a problem from developing or slow the progression of one.
