Realigning Your Life: Chiropractic Adjustments Vancouver

Most people don’t know much about chiropractic adjustments Vancouver. It does seem to be the new fad on instagram and tiktok these days ( for humans and even animals!) for getting adjustments done. There are many added benefits to having either spinal manipulative therapy (another word for an adjustment) or even extremity adjustments. A common misconception is that we only treat the spine. Many chiro’s treat all ailments in the body, and almost daily I see people for ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, wrist etc. with different combinations of modalities like shockwave therapy, soft tissue therapy, mobilizations and extremity adjustments. 

What is a Chiropractic Adjustment in Vancouver ?

A chiropractic adjustment Vancouver is a quick and precise maneuver done to a joint of your spine or extremity past its normal end range. When you get an adjustment done, you often hear a loud audible popping or cracking sensation. I often get asked what the noise is and where it comes from. Within the joint there is a capsule that is filled with a fluid called synovial fluid (provides the nutrients and lubrication for the joint to be healthy and functional). The popping sensation that you hear is actually gas bubbles being released from the synovial fluid that have formed inside. When moved quickly with a chiropractic adjustment Vancouver you can release pressure from the joint and therefore the built up gas bubbles within. Due to the fact energy can never be created or destroyed, the energy can only change forms, and therefore as it changes it releases its energy as sound. When we do an adjustment of your neck and you hear the audible pop, it’s the same process that’s happening if you were to crack your own knuckles. 

So why then is a chiro adjustment in Vancouver a good thing?

Or why would you need one? Adjustments of the spine or extremities are about restoring motion and blood flow to the local and surrounding tissue. Adjustments have a strong effect on the surrounding nerves as well and have been proven to relax and have an effect on primary afferent neurons in the paraspinal tissues of the spine, your body’s overall motor control and proprioceptive feedback as well as the bodies ability for pain processing. Most chiropractor’s are experts with the musculoskeletal symptoms, and are very good at treating many different neurological conditions (like cervical radiculopathies, dorsal scapular nerve irritation, carpal tunnel etc). 


I like to think of an adjustment as a reset to the system. Many things we do throughout our day like working, driving , doing chores puts our body out of balance due to uneven demands on the spine, shoulder, back. An adjustment is a very good way to establish balance back to the system, and try to fix some of the body’s asymmetries. 


Here are just some of the positive reasons why you should see a chiropractor at painPRO, and why an adjustment might be exactly what you need to help with your ailments or nagging pain.
