The Goals and Benefits of a Chiropractic Adjustment

A chiropractic adjustment is a safe, non-invasive, manual technique used by licensed and board-certified chiropractors. Using his hands and/or specialized tools and treatment tables, our Odessa chiropractor applies a specific degree and direction of the force on an area in the neck, spine, or an extremity. 

General goals of chiropractic adjustments include:

  • Realigning joints to resolve stiffness and pain and improve function
  • Accelerating tissue healing
  • Decompressing a pinched nerve
  • Triggering a relaxation response mediated by the central nervous system, which can stimulate whole body pain relief and improve the function of tissues and organs
  • Decreasing mental tension to reduce stress-associated inflammation 

Chiropractic adjustments can be used on everyone from infants to centenarians! Dr. Mehaffey relies on his clinical skills as well as the latest research to help decide which types of adjustments will be the most beneficial for each individual patient.

Types of Chiropractic Adjustments

Several different types of chiropractic adjustments exist, including:

  • Direct thrust or spinal manipulation
  • Gentle spinal mobilization
  • Myofascial release
  • Cox flexion/distraction technique
  • Graston technique

These adjustments can be applied at various places in the body, including the neck, middle, and lower back, shoulders, and hips. Depending on the adjustment used, the target treatment area may include joint and joint capsules, muscles, ligaments, tendons, discs, and fascia. 

What to Expect During a Chiropractic Adjustment

Chiropractic adjustments are performed as you sit or lie down comfortably. The adjustment may be slow or fast, gentle or more intense, but it will not cause pain. You may feel a little sore afterward, but this is generally mild. 

Many people feel immediate relief from the adjustment. Multiple sessions are often ideal for the best outcomes. 

We also provide additional services, such as soft tissue massage, customized exercise plans, cold laser therapy, and nutrition and lifestyle counseling.  The beneficial effects of a chiropractic adjustment are enhanced by these complementary techniques.
