Omaha chiropractic manipulation is what we call an adjustment to a vertebra that has restricted movement and has caused loss of normal function due to a misalignment. A misalignment is what we call a subluxation, when we have a subluxation it will cause inflammation in the joint and that will cause our nervous system not to function correctly.
Omaha Chiropractic Manipulation
If our nervous system isn’t working correctly it will cause many different things like muscle spasms, shooting pain in arms or legs, numbness and tingling, low back pain, neck pain, headaches and many other things. When we are looking at patients, we look for subluxations so we can correct them using a chiropractic adjustment (manipulation). A chiropractic adjustment typically involves; high velocity, and short lever arm thrust applied to a vertebra.
Chiropractic Adjustments Omaha
With chiropractic adjustments sometimes it is accompanied with an audible release of gas (joint cavitation) that is caused by the release of:
- carbon dioxide
Which releases joint pressure (cavitation). After a chiropractic adjustment, a relieving sensation happens most of the time within a couple minutes or right after. Some patients at the beginning of care can experience soreness after an adjustment because the muscles have been in spasm/constricted and after the adjustment the muscles are able to relax.
When the muscles relax the kind of soreness some patients experience is what you get after working out, but that will get less and less after each adjustment. Normally if patients experience any kind of soreness after is short-lived.
