If you have never looked into the world of physical therapy spinal manipulation, you could be missing out on an important modality for helping you enjoy optimal health, wellness, comfort, and injury recovery. Physical Therapy adjustments to the spinal column can ease pain, enhance joint motion, improve your posture, and help your nervous system function normally. That's why we're happy to offer this non-surgical healing modality at our physical therapy clinic.
The Purpose of Physical Therapy Spinal Adjustment
The human spine consists of a complex arrangement of vertebrae, discs, joints, and the muscle groups that allow the spine to twist, turn, and bend. It also hosts the spinal cord, with major nerves running through the vertebral spaces to serve the rest of the body.
Unfortunately, many problems can afflict this delicate combination of moving and non-moving parts. Even the smallest subluxation, or joint imbalance, can limit joint motion, causing neck or back pain. Dislodged or herniated discs can press against nerve roots, producing neurological discomfort or weakness in the extremities while also affecting your systemic health. An unbalanced spine may throw the rest of your body out of balance, leaving you with chronic aches and pains.
Physical Therapy spinal adjustment can relieve these problems. Valeo Health uses manual or instrument-assisted techniques that deliver small but focused force to spinal components, shifting them back into position. By normalizing your spinal alignment, we can ease neurological symptoms, reduce muscular strain, and help your neck and back move more freely.
What to Expect From Your Adjustment Session
Physical Therapy spinal manipulation can be performed safely on most individuals of all ages, including newborns. An initial evaluation analyzes your spinal alignment, checking for any imbalances that may be producing your health challenges. Valeo Health will ensure that you are a good candidate for physical therapy adjustment before proceeding. Repeated physical therapy adjustments help the body accept the changes in joint position, although you may feel substantial relief almost immediately.
Don't be alarmed if you hear a popping or cracking sound during your spinal adjustment. This harmless phenomenon occurs when trapped gases escape from within the joints.
If you're ready to boost your health, flexibility, balance, and everyday comfort, our physical therapy team is ready to help you achieve those goals. Contact our clinic (678) 383-6643 to discuss the details of physical therapy spinal manipulation and schedule an initial appointment.
