Treatment involves gentle, specific adjustments (the chiropractic word for manipulation) done by hand to help free stiff joints, which aims to remove spinal nerve irritation. This often restores the normal movement to the area and decreases pain. This effective drug-free treatment is generally painless.
Your chiropractor may utilise other techniques, such as mobilisation or stretching techniques and soft tissue massage. The chiropractor may set specific exercises and advise you how to implement some lifestyle and postural changes.
