Chiropractic Adjustments

If you’re looking for a chiropractor near you in Winnipeg, MB, you may have questions about chiropractic adjustments and how they may be able to help treat conditions like back pain, neck pain, sciatica, and headaches. The good news is our team at River North Family Chiropractic is here to help you get the answers you are looking for.


What Is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment, also called spinal manipulation, is a manual therapy where trained chiropractors use their hands or small instruments to apply controlled force to specific joints in the spine. This helps realign joints that aren’t moving properly, which chiropractors refer to as subluxations or misalignments.

Getting a Chiropractic Adjustment

Some patients describe a chiropractic adjustment as a quick, light pressure. Others feel a cracking sound similar to when you “crack” your knuckles. You may also feel some mild soreness for a day or so after your appointment as your body adjusts to the realigned joints. We will discuss with you what to expect during your adjustment, so you feel comfortable and prepared.

When Would I Need an Adjustment?

If you’re looking for back pain treatment, neck pain treatment, sciatica treatment, headache treatment or suffering from other musculoskeletal symptoms, an adjustment may help provide the relief you are looking for by realigning your joints and potentially relieving pressure on your nerves. Chiropractors might also recommend adjustments on a routine basis, even when you’re not experiencing pain, as it may help maintain joint function and prevent future problems.

Is Chiropractic Safe?

Yes, chiropractic adjustments are mostly safe when performed by licensed professionals like the chiropractors on our team at River North Family Chiropractic. There is little risk of serious complications although minor side effects, like temporary soreness, are possible.

How Many Adjustments Will I Need?

The number of adjustments needed depends on your individual condition. Acute issues may resolve within a few visits while chronic conditions may require longer treatment. A chiropractor on our team will tailor a plan based on your needs and adjust it accordingly as you progress.
