Chiropractic Care from Our Tacoma Chiropractic Team
If you've never visited a chiropractor or seen a chiropractic adjustment in action, you may have only vague notion of what this treatment involves, what it can treat and who can benefit from it. Chiropractic care spans a wide range of techniques and applications, from preventative wellness to chronic and acute pain treatment, and it's equally safe and effective for all age groups. Our team at Tacoma Chiropractic Center is proud to offer this healing method to residents of Tacoma, and surrounding areas.
How Chiropractic Adjustment Works
"Chiropractic" is a term of Greek origin that means "performed by hand," and manual adjustments have been the central form of chiropractic treatment ever since D. D. Palmer performed the first spinal adjustment back in 1895. Even from the beginning, chiropractic treatment has been about more than just back or neck pain; in that pioneering case, it actually restored a patient's hearing. But whether the adjustment is administered purely by hand or with the aid of modern instruments, the basic principles remain the same.
Chiropractic adjustments correct abnormalities in joint position called subluxations. A subluxation may occur due to traumatic accidents that dislodge the vertebrae, natural age-related changes that place stress on the spinal joints, other natural physical changes such as pregnancy, or years of musculoskeletal and postural imbalances. Newborns can even experience spinal misalignment during birth. These imbalances may inhibit joint movement, causing pain and stiffness. They can also encourage muscle strains and pinched nerves. Nerve impingement, in turn, can interfere with the communication between brain and body, leading to all kinds of physical dysfunction. By correcting your joint position and spinal alignment, we can therefore relieve or minimize troublesome symptoms.
