Chiropractic is the practice of treating musculoskeletal pain and injuries without the use of drugs or surgery. A common treatment used by chiropractors is the adjustment or manipulation of joints in the body. When a chiropractor adjusts a joint he/she performs a small but quick impulse to the desired area, and you will occasionally hear a popping sound.
Every joint in your body is surrounded by little nerves that trace back up into the spinal cord and into the brain. When a chiropractor adjusts a joint it stimulates those little nerves to release neurotransmitters that help decrease pain. Those nerves also send a signal to the brain giving us better awareness of that specific body part. This is helpful when treating different types of musculoskeletal pain and injuries because just about every common condition involves a joint i.e. back pain, neck pain, headaches, plantar fasciitis, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.

‚ÄúThe bones in my back are out of place, and I need to get re-aligned.‚ÄĚ
Joints are supposed to move and be exposed to various positions. The bones in your spine will never be perfectly aligned, and that is okay, because your spine is dynamic. Sometimes those joints are not moving enough, and that is where chiropractic adjustments come to play. It‚Äôs like putting grease on a stuck door hinge.
‚ÄúChiropractic is dangerous.‚ÄĚ
Chiropractic is one of the safest, drug-free, non-invasive therapies for neuromusculoskeletal pain and injuries. Soreness following an adjustment happens occasionally but is not long lasting. Serious complications are extremely rare and can usually be avoided by a thorough consultation and exam. At TruMotion Therapy, Dr. Sankey spends an hour with each new patient to ensure that person is a good fit for chiropractic care. Each treatment is tailored to the specific needs of each patient.
