Extremity chiropractic adjustment and spinal adjustment are two different methods of treating musculoskeletal conditions and pain. At Chiropractic UAE in Abu Dhabi, we can help you get back to feeling like yourself again.
What is Extremity Chiropractic Adjustment?
With extremity chiropractic adjustment, a chiropractor uses specialized techniques to adjust joints and muscles in the extremities, such as the neck, back, hips, shoulders, knees, elbows, wrists, or ankles. This type of chiropractic treatment is focused on restoring proper alignment to the extremities in order to relieve pain and improve range of motion.
People who may benefit from extremity chiropractic adjustment include:
- • Athletes who experience recurrent pain or injuries
- • Individuals with repetitive strain or job-related injuries
- • Older adults who may have difficulty with balance or mobility
- • Pregnant women experiencing discomfort in their extremities
Extremity chiropractic adjustment is typically performed with the patient lying down on a chiropractic table. To restore proper alignment and relieve pain, the chiropractor will use his or her hands to apply pressure or a quick thrust to the extremity.
What Is Spinal Adjustment?
Spinal adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation or manual therapy, involves using controlled force to move a joint beyond its normal range of motion. This technique can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions affecting the spine. Some of the most common conditions that may benefit from spinal adjustment include:
- • Sciatica: Pain, numbness, or tingling that radiates down the leg
- • Herniated discs: Protrusion of the inner material of the disc through the outer layer
- • Osteoarthritis: Degeneration of cartilage in the joints
- • Scoliosis: Curvature of the spine
Chiropractic adjustment, whether it be extremity or spinal, is a safe and effective treatment for musculoskeletal conditions and pain. However, as with any treatment, there may be some risks associated with chiropractic adjustment. Speak to your chiropractor to learn more about the risks associated with your specific condition and treatment plan.
