The first time many people experience chiropractic care may be when they have back pain or neck pain. Of course, chiropractic adjustments are very effective pain relief for both of those conditions, but they can do so much more. Because spinal adjustments focus on restoring the ability of the nervous system to work without any hindrance, they can provide full body corrective care and relief for a wide range of ailments while also helping you achieve peak health and wellness overall. In fact, regular chiropractic adjustments can actually help you prevent future pain and problems.

How Do Corrective Care Chiropractic Adjustments Work?

Murfreesboro chiropractor Dr. Josh Morter is skilled at a variety of chiropractic spinal adjustments, including the Gonstead technique. In each case, our chiropractor uses his hands and precisely applied pressure to correct spinal misalignments or “subluxations”. When vertebrae are misaligned, they can pinch nerves, causing pain or the inability of those nerves to send and receive messages from the brain as they’re supposed to. Subluxations can happen anywhere along the spine, leading to dysfunction anywhere in the body. For example, many people who have experienced whiplash injury have subluxations in the neck. In addition to the local neck pain this often causes, nerves pinched in this area can also lead to severe headaches and migraines. Restoring alignment in these vertebrae can lead to substantial, natural, drug-free pain relief of these headaches and other related issues. So, a series of chiropractic adjustments can restore proper spinal alignment, which takes pressure off of pinched nerves, balances the spine and helps relieve pain naturally.

What is the Gonstead Technique?

Among the different chiropractic techniques, Dr. Morter performs is the Gonstead technique, which focuses on balancing the lumbar spine (lower back) and pelvic bones using a special table with drop sections that help achieve the pressure necessary to restore balance in this area. This also helps provide relief and balance to the full body. This particular technique can also be customized for pregnant women to help them achieve pregnancy back pain relief.

Before doing any chiropractic adjustments, our chiropractor will do a series of important diagnostic tests to pinpoint the precise vertebrae that need to be adjusted. This includes radiographs, temperature testing and observations of your gait while walking and standing. He also examines your medical history and asks a lot of questions to ensure he creates a healing plan unique to your needs.
