One of the primary techniques used by Doctors of Chiropractic (DC) is "spinal adjustment," also known as a "chiropractic adjustment." In fact, chiropractors are renowned in performing spinal adjustments. The term "adjustment" refers to the physical adjustment of the spinal vertebrae. The goal of such spinal adjustment is to reduce vertebral subluxation (misalignment of vertebrae which irritates normal nerve flow) and provide optimal spinal health. When a patient has subluxation, depending on their condition and level of subluxation, Dr.Christopher Cordima adjusts the misalignment in the spine to enhance joint mobility and reduce pain, muscle spasms, nerve irritation, and nerve impingement. Here at The Advanced Pain Relief Clinic, Dr. Christopher Cordima conducts a thorough exam including X-rays which should reveal the source of your back pain and, depending on the cause, Dr.Cordima could prescribe a course of chiropractic care and massage to relieve your back pain. By conducting an exam, the results can also help you address other issues that may be causing back pain. Dr.Cordima may give you pointers on improving your posture, suggest an exercise plan to strengthen your muscles, or offer nutritional support to help you lose weight. You do not have to live with back pain anymore. Whether your acute or chronic back pain is the result of injury or illness, chiropractic care is very likely to help.
