Spinal Manipulation Could Help you Live Comfortably
Do your joints hurt? Is your back causing you trouble? Has your pain become unbearable? If so, you may benefit from spinal manipulation.
Spinal manipulation helps relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. It is a gentle, hands-on form of manual therapy that focuses on evaluating and enhancing spinal function.
Your spine does a lot for your body – it protects your spinal cord, allows you to breathe properly, and it is what allows your body to move. In fact, almost every function in your body is directly connected to the health of your spine. Therefore, even pain that may seem unrelated to spinal function could be effectively relieved through spinal manipulation treatments.
To learn more about how spinal manipulation could benefit you, Feel free to contact our highly trained physical therapist at Pinnacle Physical Therapy.
Why is spinal manipulation so important?
As stated by Healthline, “Spinal manipulation, also called spinal manipulative therapy or manual therapy, combines moving and jolting joints, massage, exercise, and physical therapy. It’s designed to relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. It’s often used to treat back, neck, shoulder, and headache pain.”
Your spine is a complicated structure of vertebrae, discs, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. Therefore, it takes a delicate balance to make sure it is at its peak level of health and function. This is why spinal manipulation is such an important form of treatment. If you are living with pain, you know how limiting it can be. In order to make sure your spine is at its optimum health, you must achieve the following:
- Good posture and spinal curves.
- Strong abdominal and core muscles.
- Strong spinal and gluteus muscles.
- Good flexibility and balance with side-bending and rotation.
Our spinal manipulation services can help you get there. If you are in pain, contact us as soon as possible. We’ll evaluate your condition to determine if spinal manipulation will be the best course of treatment for you.
Spinal manipulation as an effective, safe, and non-invasive treatment:
Spinal manipulation is a treatment method that has been known to relieve a large variety of painful conditions. In fact, a study published by the International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy supports spinal manipulation as an effective mode of treatment.
The study, titled “Effectiveness of Physical Therapist Administered Spinal Manipulation for the Treatment of Low Back Pain: A Systematic Review of the Literature” analyzed data from several reputable medical journals to determine the effectiveness of spinal manipulation on patients living with lower back pain. Six randomized control trials were included for review and thoroughly assessed by the researchers.
Results were overwhelmingly positive for the success of spinal manipulation. The conclusion is as follows:
“Based on the findings of this systematic review there is evidence to support the use of spinal manipulation by physical therapists in clinical practice. Physical therapy spinal manipulation appears to be a safe intervention that improves clinical outcomes for patients with low back pain.”
