Spinal adjustments are the standard chiropractic treatment you see when you watch any TV show that depicts a person going to a chiropractor. However, at Herrington Chiropractic, serving Hattiesburg, MS, and the nearby region, we'd like to explain exactly what a spinal adjustment is and how it could benefit you. It also helps to know what to expect when Dr. Brandon Herrington performs this treatment.
General Information About a Spinal Adjustment
Spinal adjustments are a type of chiropractic treatment that consists of our Dr. Herrington moving the vertebrae in your back. It's a gentle process and requires little force. As a result, you won't feel pain. However, the tiny movements can realign your vertebrae and discs to reduce or alleviate pain and promote healing. It'll also reduce or eliminate your symptoms.
Typically, you'll require more than one spinal adjustment. The exact number you need, though, depends on your particular condition.
Benefits of a Spinal Adjustment
