Spinal manipulation therapy

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractor is a Doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and conservative management of disorders and injuries relating to the nervous and musculoskeletal system and spinal manipulation therapy.

What is spinal manipulation therapy?

Spinal manipulation is a fast, low-amplitude thrust explicitly applied, safely, and gently to facet joints in the spine by a Chiropractor’s hands, often accompanied by audible cavitation or “clicking sound.

What is a spinal misalignment?

Minor trauma, repetitive postural straining, and overuse of the spine cause a dysfunctional spine segment. Spinal manipulation therapy restores and optimizes the altered biomechanics of the spinal segment and desensitizes aberrant spinal segmental reflex arc activities and sensory input to the central nervous system and at higher brain areas.

What can chiropractic care do for you?

Neck and back pain

Produce immediate relief of and significantly decrease acute and chronic neck pain and back pain and reduce pain by neural mechanisms at higher brain areas. Neck pain and mechanical back pain, especially office work-related, are currently the leading causes of disability and lost working days.

Spinal manipulation stimulates type I-III nerve endings, including mechanoreceptors and proprioceptive nerve endings in the facet joint capsular tissues. In addition, spinal manipulation inhibits nociceptive nerve endings, known as pain receptors, by the gate theory of pain and supraspinal and descending pain modulation mechanisms.

Fibromyalgia and muscle pain

Decrease peripheral and central sensitization, increase lowered pain threshold and reduce increased sensitivity to pain. Produce remarkable beneficial effects in individuals with fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome; a prevalent, chronic tendency, soft tissue inflammatory, and sensitization pain disorder and leading cause for muscle, neck, and back pain as working days lost.


Produce relief and decrease headaches’ intensity, frequency, duration, and disability: migrainestension-type or stress headaches, and cervicogenic headaches; recurrent headache disorders are the leading causes of suffering and disability worldwide.

versus Pharmaceutical drugs

More effective versus analgesic medications (pain killers) in treating muscle-joint pain disorders with fewer side-effects than nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Unwanted pharmaceutical adverse effects for mechanical back pain is becoming a significant health issue concerning increased and regular pharmaceutical usage.

Spinal range of motion and posture

Increase range of motion of the spine and improve posture and spinal proprioception. Unfortunately, the consequences of untreated incorrect body postures constitute one of the most popular yet underestimated health problems.

Slipped disc & pinched nerve

Produce beneficial effects on the intervertebral disc in the spine and significantly decrease the symptoms of a slipped disc and sciatica. A slipped disc is one of the most common reasons for workdays lost and can lead to excruciating referred leg and arm pain.

Muscle weakness & arthrogenic muscle inhibition

Decrease muscle weakness and muscle spasms in the presence and absence of pain.

Arthrogenic muscle inhibition is an ongoing neural inhibition that can prevent your healthy spine muscles from fully activating, even if you are pain-free. Repetitive postural straining-poor posture, overuse, and trauma to your spine are some causes and contributing factors.

Athletes and the active individual must understand that a dysfunctional spine segment or a “misalignment” can cause significant weakness of your healthy spine and limb muscles via shared nerve supply-segmental innervation, even if the dysfunctional spinal joint does not present with pain or other symptoms.

Muscle strength

Increase muscle strength and enhance motor programming, control, and learning task performance and neural mechanisms at higher brain areas.

Sports and athletic performance

Improve and enhance athletic performance.
