Adjustments and Manipulation

chiropractic adjustment

A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is the primary chiropractic treatment method for back pain.

Spinal manipulation relieves pressure on joints, reduces inflammation, and improves nerve function. It has been a trusted form of treatment since the ancient Greek Hippocrates documented manipulative techniques in his writings back in 1500 B.C. Today, spinal manipulation is used to treat conditions such as allergies, menstrual cramps and headaches.

How Does Spinal Manipulation Work?

There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Some practitioners may use force and twisting, while other techniques are more gentle. Regardless of how they are performed, these techniques are intended to restore or enhance joint function with the objectives of reducing pain and resolving joint inflammation.

When vertebrae shift out of place, there is an overall systemic response from the muscular system to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow, our nerves, our immune system, and our minds cannot function at their highest peak.

Overall, spinal adjustments and manipulations are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level without any discomfort. When the body is adequately aligned, it becomes able to respond and perform as it was built to do.

4 Steps for Achieving Optimal Health

Everyone wants to live their healthiest life, but this can seem like an impossible endeavor to many people. With so many ideas, methods, and trends for achieving health, it can be challenging – to say the least – to decide where to start and keep up with it. 

It doesn’t have to be that hard though. Dr. Evans at Evans Family Chiropractic in Las Vegas, NV shares four simple steps that can make a world of difference: eating properly, staying active, taking advantage of chiropractic treatments, and doing them each consistently. Learn how to put each into place below.

Proper Nutrition

When most people hear the word “diet,” they think of starving or missing out on their favorite foods. Eating well doesn’t have to be so difficult, though. The focus should be on fueling your body with the nutrients it needs and avoiding or limiting foods that hurt you.

And it doesn’t have to mean missing out on chocolate cake for the rest of your life. Balance is key, so you can still eat your favorite foods as long as you learn to balance.


Unless you want to spend hours in the gym, exercise doesn’t need to be a long workout. In fact, it doesn’t have to be what most people consider a “workout” at all.

You simply need to get your heart pumping for 150 minutes a week. This could be through five 30-minute stretches or ten 15-minute stretches. And you can complete it by taking walks, going for a swim, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, dancing while you’re cooking, or any other activity.

Chiropractic Care

Spinal problems and degeneration don't just happen, they accumulate.  Chiropractic care can go a long way in achieving optimal health. A chiropractic treatments can restore alignment to the spine, which improves your performance, nervous system function, mood, and much more. Other chiropractic techniques, such as massage therapy and corrective exercises, enhance health, relieve pain, improve mobility, and more. Additionally, your chiropractor can provide personalized recommendations for nutrition and exercise.

Make It a Habit

These steps shouldn’t be considered one-and-done activities. The best way to stick with them is to make them into lifestyle choices. Consider chiropractic visits to be important appointments. Choose to park a few spots down at the grocery store for some extra steps. Keep fruit sitting on your counter for easier access. Steps like these help you stay committed.
