Could a chiropractic adjustment be the solution to your problems? Headaches and back pain can be both debilitating and excruciatingly painful. These two common conditions can impact many aspects of your everyday life such as your sleep and your productivity. The cause of your pain could be as simple as getting out of bed wrongly, lifting something incorrectly, the form of your golf swing or even the design of your mattress. No matter the cause, when you find yourself in a painful back situation, you’re likely to be seeking sources of relief and may consider a chiropractic adjustment. Many people may be reluctant to visit a chiropractor for the first time, but visiting a trained, licensed chiropractor, such as Toorak Chiropractor is perfectly safe and can be a very effective solution to your pain relief.

Can I adjust myself?

You may be wondering; can I adjust myself? The answer to this question is simply, NO. Not even trained chiropractors can adjust themselves. Firstly, an adjustment might not be what you think it is, for many people consider ‘cracking’ their back an adjustment, but truth be told it is much more than that. An adjustment is a specific maneuverer designed to either correct the positioning of a vertebrae or restore proper movement to a specific joint. Many chiropractors undertake detailed patient exams prior to adjusting patients, these examinations can even include x-rays.

It is important to understand that vertebrae can be misaligned in many different ways. A single vertebra has the ability to move in 16 different directions. A chiropractor is trained to determine and understand what direction the vertebrae has moved and how to perform a correctional adjustment accordingly. Cracking your own back without understanding the direction of movement of the vertebrae can cause you more damage and, or pain.

In short, no one has the ability to adjust themselves, not even chiropractors. You may be able to pop your own neck, knuckles or back, but you’re not fixing the problem, you could even be making it worse. Get in touch with the team at Toorak Chiropractor for a professional assessment.

Should still visit a chiropractor if I have no existing pain?

Yes, seeing a chiropractor to maintain healthy joint function and a healthy spine is a wonderful strategy for good health.
