The spinal and joint manipulation is the primary treatment used by chiropractors.
The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a gentle maneuver that restores mobility. This is effective in alleviating pain and muscle tightness and thereby allowing tissues to heal.
Tissue injury can be caused by a specific single event, such as lifting heavy boxes or through repetitive stress injury. This could be related to sitting awkwardly while working on the computer.
Xrays are completed dependent on your specific condition. X-rays can help rule out more serious problems as well as complete the picture of your condition. If you condition can be diagnosed without X-rays, none will be taken.
