Spinal Manipulation

What is Spinal manipulation techniques?

Spinal manipulation techniques, also known as spinal adjustments, involve the use of controlled force to manipulate the joints of the spine. This is done to help reduce pain, improve range of motion, and improve overall function.

Spinal manipulation is typically performed by a licensed chiropractor or osteopathic physician. During the process, the practitioner will use their hands or specific tools to apply pressure to the spine at specific points. This pressure can help to correct misaligned joints and reduce pressure on nerves that are causing pain or discomfort.

The purpose of spinal manipulation is to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. By correcting spinal misalignments, the body is better able to heal itself and function properly. Spinal manipulation can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, and more.

It is important to note that spinal manipulation should only be performed by a licensed and trained professional. Attempting to manipulate or adjust your own spine can be dangerous and lead to further injury. Always consult with a qualified practitioner before undergoing any spinal manipulation techniques.

The benefits of spinal manipulation techniques combined with massage techniques

If you’re dealing with chronic back pain, you may already be considering spinal manipulation or massage therapy. But did you know that combining these two techniques can offer even greater benefits?

Spinal manipulation involves applying pressure to the joints of the spine, helping to reduce pain and improve mobility. However, combining this technique with massage therapy can enhance the effects even further.

During a massage, the therapist here at Unique Sports Massage will focus on manipulating soft tissues, including muscles, tendons, and ligaments. When combined with spinal manipulation techniques, massage therapy can help to:

Loosen tight muscles: Tight muscles can put pressure on the spine, leading to pain and discomfort. By using massage techniques to release tension in these muscles, spinal manipulation can be more effective in restoring proper mobility.

  • Increase circulation: Improved circulation helps to bring vital nutrients and oxygen to the affected areas of the spine, promoting healing.
  • Speed up the recovery process: Combining spinal manipulation and massage therapy can speed up the recovery process by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.
  • Provide overall relaxation: A combination of spinal manipulation and massage therapy can provide overall relaxation, reducing stress and promoting a sense of well-being.

Before undergoing any treatment, our skilled massage therapists can help to determine if spinal manipulation combined with massage is right for you.

If you’re looking for natural relief from chronic back pain, consider combining spinal manipulation and massage techniques. With the right care, you can enjoy better mobility and an improved quality of life.
