The short video illustrating how a chiropractor adjusts a spine also answers common questions on what to expect on a visit to a chiropractor for the first time and general chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care is one of the safest practices in the medical field, and a patient should dispel any form of fear that he may have, especially when visiting a chiropractor for the first time.
Adjusting the spine is not a painful experience otherwise, patients would avoid chiropractic care.
Some forms of adjustments done on one’s body feel like a massage, with patients reporting that it feels good.
The cracking and popping noise that one hears during the process is the movement of the spine and gas being released.
The first thing one would expect is to have X-rays done. This will help the chiropractor have a general overview of the spine and its alignment.
A chiropractor’s instruments include a special long table to help with the alignment of the pelvis. Special but smaller instruments like the arthrosis (which looks like an impact gun) help check on tension in areas like the neck, usually on older or younger people.
Common ailments requiring chiropractic care include lower backs and sore necks.
